Closet Organization Tips
Empty and Clean
First things first.
If you’re having trouble finding what you need, then you could probably benefit from getting rid of everything you no longer wear or use. Start by taking everything out and making two piles: one for the clothes and items you’ll keep and another for the things you want to sell, toss, or donate. You’ll probably be surprised by how much you have, and how much you don’t actually need. Once everything is out of your closet, take this opportunity to clear out any dust bunnies that have made a home in your closet — the last thing you want is for the items you keep to get dirty while they’re in storage!
Separate Your Clothing
Now that you’ve decided what you’ll keep in your closet, it’s time to put it back in a way that makes organizational sense. While there are many different approaches to closet organization, putting like items with like items is usually the most straightforward way to find what you need quickly. As a quick example, put all of your work shirts together in an area, all of your dresses in another, and so on. Whenever you need to find your favorite garment in a hurry, you’ll know exactly where to look!
Use Your Space Wisely
Another way to make your closet easier to navigate is to use your space efficiently. For instance, instead of hanging your belts, ties, and scarves, you can easily install a small bar on the wall for all of your accessories. You’ll be able to find the right place for anything you want to hang, and you’ll never have to bother digging through dresser drawers again.
No matter how large or small your closet may be, you can also use closet systems to make even the smallest spaces more efficient. Have you ever tripped over a pair of shoes while looking for something to wear? Hanging shoe racks can be placed in a corner and allow you to keep all of your footwear organized and out of the way. If your closet has shelving, there are a number of bins, dividers, and other organization options that can help you free up valuable bar space without wrinkling your clothes.
One In, One Out
After you’ve organized your closet, the best way to maintain your new organization is to limit yourself to the one in, one out rule. Just as the name suggests, every time you buy something new, something old has to go. In addition to ensuring that your closet doesn’t get out of control, adopting this rule can help you save money and think twice about buying clothing you won’t wear!
