Another problem I have is that I actually cannot see what clothes are in my cupboard. I have far too many items of clothing which need to be organised in a neat and orderly way so that I can see what is going on. I have so many black tops stacked on top of each other and I can never tell which is which so I end up pulling the wrong one out and messing the whole pile up in the process. It is never the one I am actually looking for. Always the freaking wrong top. Aaaahhh! Frustration!
The solution: a clothes swap with your mates!
Firstly you need to think about friends that are a similar size to you as well as ladies who are smaller/bigger. You then ask everyone to put clothes aside that they hardly wear but that is still in good condition. Clothes that need a new home and clothes that they can imagine their friends wearing and loving.
A good time for these Clothes Swaps would just before the change of season. This is the perfect time to freshen cup your cupboard.
Suggest that your friends each bring a bottle of wine or a plate of snacks and of course, their bag of clothing.
A clothing rail would be great as you would all hang up your clothes and then start trying on the items that you like. A full length mirror would be handy too. Put everything you like in your pile. The basic rule would be to swap stuff for similar value, so that its a fair trade. A jacket for a jacket. Or two to three tops for a jacket. If its an expensive brand of clothing then you would trade a few items for that piece.
In the end you just need to feel that all your swaps were fair. You could do this each season, four times a year. It really is such a great feeling to do guilt free shopping!
