De-stress your morning by de-cluttering your wardrobe

Home Improvements Helpful advice on how to change your closets from overwhelming to functional.

How much time you do waste rifling through mountains of clothes each morning searching for something to wear? An uncluttered wardrobe will save you time and energy.

If you are an expat that hails from cooler climes, you will probably have a summer wardrobe as well as a winter one for when you go back home. The clothes you need right now should be the ones hanging in front of you. Everything else should be stored away.

Wash and iron all your clothes and group them together. Hang shirts, dresses, trousers and tops together, so you know where to find everything. Pack your shoes in boxes to protect them and save space. Bulkier items such as duvets can be stored in vacuum-packed bags.

And those items at the back of the closet? Be brutal. If you haven't worn it for three years, chances are you won't miss it. The monthly flea market in Dubai's Safa Park is a great way to get rid of unwanted items. Otherwise, the Red Crescent is always looking for donations.

Once you've de-cluttered your wardrobes, why not move on to the kitchen cupboards?
