Your wardrobe is one of the easiest places in your house to start flexing your organising muscles and sort out your stuff.  Getting dressed is something people do everyday, even if it’s just to change pj sets! And in Melbourne sometimes the weather demands changing 20,000 times. By getting your organising foundations in place by sorting out your wardrobe, and practicing your skill set, other areas quickly seem manageable. It’s in the wardrobe that we can really master sorting, decluttering, and decision making as well as organisation through observing what habits and difficulties may be tripping us up.

Organising your wardrobe and paring it back, is also a great way to simplify the stress of everyday modern life. It’s said the average person makes 35,000 decisions every day. I can understand why that’s so tiring! So imagine how you would feel walking up to your wardrobe and being able to see everything clearly, knowing where everything is and not having to search your whole bedroom for that winning combination but easily selecting your outfit for the day, looking great, feeling good and in control because everything has a home and the space stays tidy. Imagine being in love with everything in your wardrobe, loving the way your clothes fit and how you feel moving around in them as you get on with living your life. Simple.

If we keep peeling back the benefits on downsizing and organising wardrobes, it’s easy to see that money and time are saved.

Through organising their wardrobe, I’ve seen clients save money because their spending habits have been curbed, they no longer buy duplicate or very similar items, and as items are in higher rotation, they are used more and every cent is squeezed out of a purchase. Having your items organised, makes it easier to identify the holes in your wardrobe, so you spend your clothing budget wisely.

  • Have you experienced getting an outfit together, feeling rushed and stressed, and then noticing that a button is missing or that it really needs an iron, so you have to start again? Here’s where those hidden time benefits come up. By being across what’s in your wardrobe and the state of care that each piece is in, there’s opportunity to plan ahead on maintenance which means that you’re never left high and dry.
  • Saving time is not limited to the mornings either, but special events are easier to plan for because knowing what’s in your collection helps with outfit selection and planning ahead of time rather than on the night.

I’ve had the pleasure of being of service to clients and witnessing firsthand how good they feel when they’ve accomplished organising their wardrobe. The delight on their face makes me happy. We’ve stood side by side and gazed at our handy work, admiring the tidiness and the calm that the outcome radiates. It’s a lovely feeling and visually pleasing to the eye to say the least.

Anna:

I loved working with Christie to de-clutter my wardrobe. She guided me with sensitivity and patience, allowing me to reach decisions on my own. We talked through reasons why I wanted to hold on to certain pieces and she encouraged me through awareness and learning to let certain pieces go when I was hesitating too much. Christie gave me a lot of tips, assistance and helped me create fun outfits with items I love but wasn’t sure what to do with. By the end of our time together I was able to reduce my wardrobe by about half!

Using storage devices I already had, Christie also re-arranged my workout clothes on to one shelf. They were no longer scattered in various places around my wardrobe but were arranged neatly and easy to access.

After my session, simply walking into my wardrobe has been a joy! I could clearly see what items I own, and I feel a rejuvenated sense of excitement for my clothes as each piece is something that I love. I continue to feel joy and excitement each time I get dressed as I know that every item is getting the wear it deserves, and is a true reflection of who I am.

I remember a very valuable thing from our coaching session was admitting out loud that I have a shopping and sale addiction; it made me accountable and I stopped thinking things like “nah, everyone buys stuff, stop making yourself miserable by denying yourself things”. It changed my view. I think that’s true in some sense but at the same time it was my way of denying something difficult to change. You made a great suggestion about browsing for inspiration (Facebook, magazines, books and Pinterest) instead of browsing for something to purchase, and we talked about why I like purchasing things so much. I always find it helpful to stop something occurring in the future if I understand why I do it.

The coaching sessions we had really showed their value when you talked about the Minimalists documentary. I really saw my own lifestyle reflected in the documentary and since I already learnt some skills from you on how to reduce spending, it increased my interest in the topic and made me question more “why do I keep buying things? Why do I hold on to so much?” Almost immediately I went to cleanse some of my wardrobe and in doing so I thought about your work with decluttering, which led me to have that conversation with you and instigate our wardrobe session.

Your work with my wardrobe has seriously changed my life. I enjoy the increased space and simplicity so much that I am so mindful about purchasing clothes now. From time to time I think about purchasing something but then think about how it’d fit into my wardrobe, and if I can create the outfit I’m imagining with something similar currently in my wardrobe. If I do purchase something, it’s considered VERY carefully – often an entire week or more of research and mulling it over.

The thing that surprised me the most was that after our wardrobe session, I was able to stop shopping pretty easily. I didn’t even have the desire go and browse. It sounds crazy but this increased my time SO much – no more casual browsing at the mall during lunch breaks or weekend outings. Thinking about all the stuff we culled, I realised how unsustainable the fashion industry is and that realisation has made me resist buying a lot. I still love fashion, but I no longer want the new season pieces. I guess it’s also made me realise how much I enjoy simple styles. They’re timeless and can be mixed in so many ways. I just see it as such a smart way of dressing and further reduces the need to buy things. Now if I look to purchase something, I’ll want it in classic, neutral colours and plain, when I used to want cute patterns or bright colours. It’s only been a short time, but already I feel a bit sick when I see people buying lots of things – like big, stuffed bags from H&M south and glad that I don’t do that anymore.

I really enjoyed talking things out with you and digging deep into the whys of things which cleared up a lot of my mess. I think that really helped me make confident decisions about my habits, and with you understanding my whys, you were able to suggest real solutions.

Ultimately, I feel like a more focused person. A veil of illusion has been lifted and I can spend my time, money and mental capacity on things that are more important to me. I can see the benefits seeping into more areas of the house – the kitchen, garage and my office. Working with you was gold!
