We all know that a well-organised wardrobe is satisfying, but the sorting-out process to get there is mostly exhausting and boring at the same time. It includes a lot of decision-making which gets us enormously overthinking what to keep and what to toss. If we are too indecisive about keeping an item or not, we tend to just put it back into our closet where it starts to gather dust again and again. It is like a vicious circle.
So why do not create the sorting-out process more entertaining, as well as, more efficient? Here are 3 ways how to keep sorting out your wardrobe entertaining:
Meet up with friends
Spending time with friends is always a pleasurable thing we love to do. So, combine this with sorting out your items and the whole process of getting a clearer closet will be spiced up. Organise a meeting with your friends to consult each other regarding what to keep and what to toss. By rating them from one to ten you can easily decide what to give away and what will stay in your closet. Create an own little showroom for you and your friends by putting up clothes racks in your living room to simply have a look at the items of each other and to do a private clothes exchange. This is a practical, as well as an ecological-friendly way how to get rid of the clothes you do not use anymore and how to expand your closet with new attires.
Make extra money with your old clothes or upcycle them
If you want to make extra money by cleaning out your closet, take photos of the items you no longer want to keep in your wardrobe while you are tidying out and sell them online at a thrift store site. This will keep you entertained and creative during the process. Of course, you can also just donate the items which you have already sorted out and that are still in a good condition. As well, you can find many creative DIY ideas how you can easily spice up your old clothes on the Internet. For example, create a bag out of your old t-shirt or make a rag out of your old items.
Get advice from your family or flatmates
The third way how to create the sorting-out process more entertaining, as well as easier, is to let your family or flatmates give you advice what to keep and what to toss. You can show them your clothes like you are doing a haul and they have to rate your items from one to ten. If you prefer seeing your attires on another person, just let your kids, siblings or flatmates trying them on.
As mentioned before, sorting out your clothes and accessories can seem extremely boring at first sight, but there are enough possibilities how to create this whole process more entertaining. So, try them out and see for yourself.
