Wardrobe Re-shuffle and a Painful Commitment

Moving home from Uni and packing and unpacking my whole life has been a strenuous task which I have only just completed. Being a very organised person I hate leaving suitcases and crap all over the place, I prefer to just get it all done and dusted as soon as I get home. However, this packing lark has taken a good few days. Coming home and realising I seemed to have nearly doubled my clothes collection whilst at Uni I decided an old fashioned clear out was long overdue! I always hate throwing out clothes because I think that maybe one day they just might come back into fashion! However, I am a huge fan of de-cluttering and throwing things out but I don't seem to be able to do it with my clothes! I have managed to throw a lot of things out, and most of it is pretty decent so I have decided to do a car-boot sale at some point over the summer and hopefully make some dollar out of it! Here is my wardrobe post clean-up (still only just fits in!)

The clothes that aren't quite good enough to go in my drawers but can't bring myself to throw away

Drawers of tops, shorts, bikinis, scarfs and underwear
I managed to fill 2 huge Ikea bags worth of clothes, plus a whole bag of handbags and shoes so hopefully I will make a bit of money from them. After doing all this I have decided I have too many clothes and I am committing myself to a clothes amnesty for 3 months, I will not purchase one single item for 3 months!!!! Now I've put it in writing I have to stick to it!! ahhhhhh this is gonna be hard, I'm just thinking of all the money I am going to save, which will hopefully pay off my Europe trip ( more info coming soon)


  1. SWEET POST! Glad I found this blog.

    Check out mine? I'm a photographer!


    If you want, follow it and I'll do the same.

  2. I'm going to try to go to a car boot this summer too - too many clothes that I just never wear!
    And I tried the whole clothes ban thing and didn't last a month, haha. Good luck :)

  3. I actually pray for the day that my wardrobe, sorry, floordrobe looks as streamlined and tidy as that! I've filled 4 charity bags full so far on my clear out and still going - too many clothes!!!

    p.s. packing and unpacking for uni is the worst thing ever.

  4. I completely understand not being able to throw away clothes, I'm exactly the same!
    I've just managed to do it and think I'm gonna try sell on ebay and give some to a charity shop.
    I think I should try the clothes ban thing but I know it's not gonna work! :)

  5. Oh no the ban! I need a shopping ban again also... you could sell on ebay too!
