New Year, New habits…

Is your wardrobe overflowing with clothes that you don’t wear either because you don’t like them, or can’t find them?

Maybe now is the time to set in place some new habits, to make your mornings easier. Take a couple of hours and go through your wardrobe. Separate out the clothes that you wear from those you don’t wear. Those you wear can go back in the wardrobe. You will feel great being able to see what you have and knowing that it is all being worn.

Now go through the ones that you don’t wear. If they don’t fit, let them go or at least put them away. They should not be taking up space in your wardrobe.

What is left?

Maybe, clothes that you would wear – but they need ironing, dry cleaning, or mending. Set yourself a reasonable timescale to get these things sorted. If by the end of that time you haven’t dealt with the problem, you probably don’t like them enough to be worth keeping. Let them go.

Try not to hang on to things that are too small or are uncomfortable. The truth is that if you lose the weight you deserve something new, and if you don’t lose it, then those clothes just serve to make you feel bad about yourself. If the item is uncomfortable to wear, you will either regret wearing it – or not wear it! Let it go.

Lastly, do you find you can’t resist a bargain? If that is the case try to put some space between seeing the item and buying it. Go home and look at what you will wear it with, if it doesn’t go with anything then it isn’t a bargain as you need to buy yet more things just to be able to wear it.

If you are a charity shop junkie then tell yourself ‘If it is meant to be, it will still be here tomorrow’. Many of us buy more than we want or need and it only serves to make our lives more difficult as we can’t find the things we want in the jumble that is our wardrobe.

Good luck with making your mornings simpler.

Happy New Year!

It’s a new year and I hope for you all it will be a good one.

I wonder how many of you carefully kept your wrapping paper and cards for reuse next year? In these days of waste it is a good thing to do. If you intend reusing the pictures from your cards as gift tags or to decorate the front of your Christmas letter, why not do the cutting now so there is less to store and the card fronts will be ready to use?

Many people buy their wrapping paper and cards in the Sales for next year. May I suggest that you check what you still have before going mad in the Sales? A bargain ceases to be a bargain if you have enough for the next decade already.

It is worth having a place to keep such things where they are easily available and won’t get spoiled. I have one drawer devoted to gifts cards and wrapping paper. It helps me to keep track of what I have and I am less likely to either forget what I have already bought or lose it. Believe me, I have done both in the past!

Be warned, buying presents that ‘may‘ come in useful for ‘somebody‘ can be a false economy. Very often these gifts lie in the drawer unused because they are never quite the right thing. Buying something that is perfect for someone and labeling it as such is more helpful.

If you know that the Sales bring out the bargain hunter in you and you don’t have room for any more in the house. Do yourself a favour and stay at home with a good book or movie! It’s much easier to avoid temptation than resist it.

If you would like help to get those bargains organised ready for next Christmas why not call me? A short session now could save you hours next year!
