SORT IT Start by sorting your clothes into four piles:

-

As with many epic tasks, you’ll need to divide and conquer when clearing out your wardrobe

1 KEEP

This is for the items you love and wear regularly.

2 DONATE/SELL

Set aside pieces that are in good condition but no longer fit or aren’t worn.

3 MEND

Group quality staples that need tailoring or repairing.

4 REPURPOSE

These are low-quality or stained items that you can cut up and turn into cleaning cloths.

Next, give your wardrobe shelves and rails a spray

and wipe before returning your “keep” items.

Then, put the remaining piles into different bags

and donate, sell, mend or repurpose accordingl­y. Do this step quickly so you don’t end up keeping items you previously decided you don’t need.

IF YOU’RE UNSURE WHETHER TO KEEP SOMETHING, ASK YOURSELF:

Is it comfy?

Does it fit?

Is it stained?

Would I wear it tomorrow?
