What to wear?

How many of us look in the wardrobe and think we have nothing to wear?

I found this a big problem when I couldn’t lose weight and keep if off, as I then I had  a wardrobe full of clothes and probably  only 20% were the right size.

This was sometimes because I had lost some weight and they were really too big, but more often than not, it would be full of things I was meaning to lose weight to even be able to get into.

If you do lose weight healthily and keep it off, then one of the things you should really do is ditch all the big clothes. All you need is to have the confidence that you don’t need the safety net of larger clothes in the wardrobe just in case.

Secondly you should make sure that you try things on in a shop or straight away when they arrive, if you order on line. If you have any doubt about whether they suit you or if the fit isn’t good, then don’t buy them or send them straight back.  Trust me if you don’t instantly feel they are right they are liable to sit at the back of the wardrobe for a long time.

I work in conjunction with my daughter Kate who runs http://www.roomtobreathe.org.uk where she  helps people to declutter anything from a wardrobe to a home.  As she sells on commission items of quality, she gets a lots of clothing that hasn’t even been worn, still with labels. See the snap shot of her unit with lots of clothing ready for sale.

This is helpful for my clients, either to look at for bargains but equally to sell on items they no longer wear.

So why not check out your wardrobe today !

How to stop clutter

One of the things that I found hard when my weight fluctuated so much was storing clothes in lots of different sizes.  I can remember times when only about 20% of my clothes fit me! Having now lost weight and been at the same weight for 6 years I now find it is only changing fashion and the fact that clothes wear out means I get rid of them.

However one the best things I do, on the advice of my daughter Kate who runs a decluttering business at http//:www.roomtobreathe.org.uk is to store my winter clothes shrink wrapped over the summer and do the same with my summer clothes over the winter.

This weekend I have just sorted through my winter clothes for those I want to keep and have shrink wrapped them and put them in loft.  I have opened the bag with the summer ones and know that they will all fit which is great!

It is useful to work closely with Kate as she can sell clothing for people who have lost weight and equally has lots of bargains in her ebay shop for people who are looking for smaller clothes.

But if you want advice on how to declutter she has lots of great advice so check out her website.
