Organizing Your Closet

Organizing Your Closet


Getting your closet in order can save you time, money, and space.

Use these 5 steps to achieve your organized closet.

  1. Remove anything that is not wardrobe related. Don’t share this valuable storage space with items that should be located elsewhere in your home.
  2. Remove any outdated, torn, or ill-fitting clothing. This is prime real estate, as storage goes, in your home. Use it for items you love and use often.
  3. Arrange your hanging clothes by type and then by length, so you can utilize the space under the shorter clothes.
  4. Improve your closet by adding lighting and other storage solutions like hooks, shoe racks, bins, and tie racks.
  5. If you switch your clothing storage with the seasons, this is a great time to weed through it. Take out any items that you haven’t used during the previous season. Do you know the hanger trick? At the beginning of the season, turn all your hangers backward. Then, as you wear things, re-hang them in the correct manner. At the end of the season, see how many hangers are still backward. You haven’t worn these items. Do you still need them? It’s an eye-opening exercise and an easy way to clear out your closet.
