How to Save Money and Make Your Clothes Last Longer

How to Care for Your Clothes and Save Money Doing It!

 

Caring for and organizing your clothes the smart way can save a lot of time and money. How many of us wear a shirt or pants once and throw them in the dirty clothes hamper, or on the floor (a definite no-no). Well, this post is for you. Read on…

I have had a few folks tell me that once they have worn something, they either throw it on the floor or in the hamper. For the most part, they said that they did not know what to do with them because they were not really dirty, but they did not want to hang them back up? Well, here is the scoop. If you wear something and you did not sweat profusely or soil the garment with stains, you should put it back in the closet, period. It truly is not dirty. It may have a very small amount of body oil on it, but that is not dirt.

If it bothers you to put these worn clothes back in the closet along with unworn clothes, then yes, you should make a small space in your closet for worn, but not dirty, clothes. I do this and I then can easily remember and grab what I have already worn. Make outfits out of a few things that you have worn and hang them up separately so that you can grab them and wear these again first. I have been known to wear garments two to three times as a norm. It cuts down in doing laundry and reduces your clothing budget. Why? Clothes get worn out mainly by washing and drying them! Not by wearing them. Another reason to wash most garments less and in the delicate cycle.

Caring for and organizing your clothes-the washer

 

Speaking of laundry, another important tip that will save you money is don’t overstuff your washer. I have seen some folks who literally cram their clothes so tight that it would be a miracle is any water or soap got to all of the clothes. As a rule, only fill your washer half full, with like colors and fabrics on the delicate cycle. I only wash my towels, linens and jeans in the regular cotton cycle. The rest get the delicate treatment.

I have a client who wants to #organize her entire home. That's her basement in the featured picture. I'm very excited to see someone who is psyched to organize their entire house. She had a house fire a few weeks ago.  It should take about 6 months to complete the home repairs so that she can move back in. And when she does, all of her stuff will come with her and all of it needs weeding and #organizing. https://buff.ly/2eRz8QP

  • Get that pantry ready for the holidays Yes, the holidays are two months away. Unbelievable. I would be remiss if I did not start the holiday prep cycle with cleaning out your pantry and kitchen drawers. So it's time to get that pantry ready for the holidays. First things first-Weed! Go through your entire pantry. I have a small kitchen, so my pantry is a nice armoire that I bought at some years ago. [  374 more words ]⠀
