    How do you declutter your wardrobe?

    My children have plenty of clothes. One of them will be going to hostel next month. I dont feet like touching the wardrobe and segregate their clothes when I see the mess. It may take two full days for me to organize..

    Give them fair warning that if they do not get their wardrobes organized you are going to do it and that when you are done they may not be happy. You might be surprised at how quickly they accomplish the task!

      I agree!  If they're old enough to go off on their own, they're old enough to take responsibility for their own "stuff."  Tough love, here.  Tell them you have xxx time to do it, or I will, and no complaints of how it was done!

    When my kids were small I always encouraged them to arrange their wardrobe, bookshelf, study table, toys etc.  themselves. Even if it was not up to my expectations, they used to do it. Afterwards I did the final arrangements. But they learnt that they have to do it all by themselves in future. Now they are  in jobs in other cities and managing everything.
    Children learn it when they have to do it on their own.

    my teen doesn't allow me to touch her clothes. She dumps everything into her closet. So, the best thing is wait till  she in good mood, declutter with her

    The best way to teach children how to organize their wardrobe is by organizing yours in front of them because they copy quickly, what their parents do. I used to do so with my son and daughter, when they were children. And they have developed this habit so firmly that they also do so in front of their  own children. Whenever I declutter my wardrobe, I call my  eight year old grand-daughter to watch me. She has also caught the habit but sometimes I have to remind her.

    It is true that children have plenty of clothes in their wardrobe as opposed to the children of our generation. Their wardrobes are, in fact, overflowing with clothes and thus organizing them is problematic.

    I always suggest them to buy what is necessary but they are so much influenced by friends and peers that they pay no heed to it.

      Thank you Sir for this valuable idea. I will try it out.
      My children also have more clothes than what they need and I feel partly it is my fault.

    Ask them which clothes they would really like to wear and give the one's away that will clutter their closet.
