After having a baby, time seems to move at a strangely fast pace. Somehow, even though you’re sure you’re paying attention, it’s months later, and your wardrobe overflows with maternity clothes that really don’t fit anymore.
I’ve shared over on Instagram that I’m currently in the middle of a project I’ve called my “Getting My Life Back Together” project, and part of that process is to cross a lot of niggling house tasks off my list before the new year hits. A few days ago, sorting out my maternity clothes inched towards the top of my list.
I began by pulling all of the maternity clothes out of the wardrobe and collecting them on the bed. Then, I sorted them into different categories: dresses, bottoms, tops, undergarments, nightwear, hosiery and outerwear. The whole process took maybe ten minutes, if not less.
Next, I took all of the clothes and folded them following to the Marie Kondo method, as outlined in her book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up.* I stacked them all, standing upright, into the IKEA Skubb storage case I purchased during our last trip there for exactly this purpose.
Since I made an effort to ensure my maternity wardrobe was more of a capsule wardrobe with only thirty pieces, everything fit in perfectly with a little gentle persuasion. Before I zipped up the storage case. I took a spare piece of paper and wrote down everything it contained, for future reference.
All in all, this organising project took no more than 30 minutes, but I’m so happy I took the time to do it! My wardrobe is far less full and the case is safely stowed away on the top shelf.
Any mini organising projects you’re hoping to tackle this week? I’d love to hear from you in the comments below!
