Have you ever considered decluttering with nature?
Decluttering is a natural process for Mother Nature. We see this the most in Autumn. Mother Nature doesn’t hold back. She generously lets go of her leaves. And for a time, we enjoy her “minimal” style.
Following Mother Nature’s lead, Autumn is a fabulous time to declutter. And you’re not doing it alone. You’re decluttering with nature. In sync with nature.
The cooler temperature lends us to being inside more. It’s the perfect time to declutter! Especially your wardrobe. Here are some ideas to inspire your autumnal wardrobe decluttering.
Declutter with nature, your wardrobe.
Swap summer for winter:
Whether you swap your season’s over or bring the current season closer to the front, taking the time to look at what you’ve used, what is worn out and what you didn’t wear is a valuable task to do. And Autumn is the perfect time to do it.
Items you may want to let go, might be:
- A piece of clothing you’ve loved and worn so much that it is now worse for wear. It may be damaged, stained or past it’s best.
- Something you never wore. It is ok to let go a piece of clothing we purchased and never worn. Especially if you are not going to wear it.
Or, quite often we’ll wear a piece of clothing a lot in one season, then the next summer we don’t wear it at all. That’s because you have a new favourite. It is ok to let your “old favourite” go and be enjoyed by someone else.
- A piece of clothing that doesn’t fit. Your wardrobe should have items that make you feel good about yourself. If you have something that is too small, and you don’t want to let it go, put it in the back of the wardrobe. Let’s not have clothing in our working wardrobes that don’t fit us.
The change of season is a fabulous time to book a date in your diary to refresh and declutter your wardrobe. You won’t be doing it on your own. Mother Nature is busy doing it too. So, declutter with nature and ask a friend to keep you company. It can be helpful to have a friend, music and a cuppa while decluttering.
