Wardrobe Code of Conduct: 5 organisational ideas that pay off

It's hard to live in environments where clutter persists. Organising your wardrobe can seem like a daunting task... but it's not. Although most people like to live in a tidy and clean environment, it's not always possible to clean and tidy on a daily basis. However, you don't need to be an expert in organisation to make everything more harmonious. The first doubt that arises is: where to start? Dona Rosa will help you through the whole process!

1 - Remove everything: It is necessary to clear out the wardrobe to get an idea of what you have inside it. When you have a disorganized space, a lot of things end up being forgotten. How many times have you worn those trousers you bought for Christmas 2015?

2 - Make a selection: This second step is to divide everything into three categories - what's useless and will go to the trash; what will go to donate and what stays. In the throw away group enter the objects that are broken, that have lost their usefulness, the very old clothes and those that are not in good condition to donate (or because they are punctured, torn and stained). As for the donate group, if the clothes no longer fit, donate them. If you don't wear them, they're just taking up space. The key is to think about when was the last time the piece was worn. Regarding the keep group, if the pieces are in good condition and if they are worn more, they go back to the wardrobe.

3 - Separate the clothes by types: Another piece of advice Dona Rosa gives is to group the items by types. You can separate the items as follows: warm clothes and cold ones; short pieces from long ones; separate light fabrics from heavy ones; separate jumpers and blouses from trousers, skirts and shorts and group sets.

4 - Abuse the organizers: Baskets and boxes are great for dividers, since they make identification easier. When storing the pieces, the most worn ones should be on top. The underwear, which go through more rotation, can be the first. Clothes used infrequently can be in the last drawers.

5 - Caring for the garments: Take care of each piece according to the manufacturer's instructions! Never store damp clothes! Moisturize leather garments! Clean and sanitise shoes! Organising is not as difficult as maintaining. Once you have put your wardrobe in order, always try to put everything in its proper place.
