A new season is on the horizon and now is the perfect time to get organised for the months ahead. Before you jump back into the full-on routine of post holiday / back-to-school, now’s the perfect time to declutter and get set for September.
In this blog post, we look at some simple ways to declutter your home, refresh your wardrobe, and some back-to-school essentials. You’ll find all you need at St Nics.
Declutter and Organise
When it comes to decluttering, the secret is to tackle one room at a time. Choose your room and then sort items into three piles – Keep, Donate, and Bin.
Seasonal items, such as summer clothes and shoes, can be placed into storage that is easily accessible. This handy storage bag and Vacuum Storage Bag from Robert Dyas are great for taking up minimum space and can be stored easily under the bed or in the loft.

If you have clothing that is in good condition but you no longer have a use for them, recycle them at Primark. Just pop your items into the pre-loved clothing recycle box in-store.
