Tidying is not Minimalism.

Every person in this world is an individual, and every person will need or want different numbers of belongings.

Getting Decluttered and Organised is not about minimalism, it’s about living with the right number of things for you. It’s about choosing what to keep based on what supports you in your life. Don’t make the mistake of believing that if you could only get rid of this, or that, you will be happy. Happiness comes from positivity, not negativity. This is why we always start with a Vision of what we want our life to look like.

If you are following along with Tidy 21, then last week you will have gone through your clothing and picked out the things that you loved and wanted to keep (if you missed that, it is here). Once you have decided what you want to keep, it is necessary to put them away in a way that makes sense.

I always recommend folding and storing vertically. Fold anything that is easy to fold and hang things that look happier hung.

At this point in your decluttering journey don’t break your heart over getting the storage exactly right as you will find that spaces open up within your home as you go along. Use boxes that you already have as dividers. There are several ways that you can organise your wardrobe. The first is by type, the second by length and the third by colour. There is no right or wrong, just whatever suits you.

However, if you do want to make a visual difference to your wardrobe, I recommend buying new hangers (I love velvet ones) and the Ikea Skubb boxes are useful as dividers within drawers.
