Last week, I wrote about how to save time in your morning routine, which included organizing your closet. I know some of you have trouble with keeping your closet organized, which inspired me to share my tips on closet organization. These tips will add the bliss back to your wardrobe (and sanity) because you’ll feel ready to take on each day with a great outfit from your organized space.
Divide and conquer:
First, separate two bags labeled “keep” and “donate.” Go through your clothes and find what fits and what doesn’t fit, what has holes and what’s good enough to keep. Here’s a good rule of thumb, if it’s not damaged but you haven’t worn it in over a year, it’s time to donate it. Once you’ve gone through your clothes, it’ll be easier to organize.
Cut the clutter:
If you keep other items like books in your closet in addition to clothes, you might want to ditch them. If you’re short on space, find a clever way to store these items. However, keep your closet dedicated to clothes, shoes and accessories. You’ll find that you’ll feel less overwhelmed getting ready in the morning and you’ll stay organized.
I color code my closet because it’s the best way to stay organized. Then, within each color category, my clothing in categorized from sleeveless, short-sleeved, long-sleeved, sweaters, etc. Find the best way to keep your clothes uniformed in your closet. You’ll know where every item is with ease, which will keep you in track of your clothes.
One of the best ways to make your closet visually appealing is to keep your organization consistent in your closet. Find sleek hangers that will save space. Add a shoe rack to organize your shoes. If you’re storing scarves, belts and bags, separate them into their own category and find pretty storage to keep everything in its place.
Keep it up:
Don’t spend the time organizing your closet just to have it in shambles a week later. Make sure to keep up with your newly-organized closet by taking the time to put away your laundry each week in its proper place. Try to set aside time once a month to clean your closet and keep your organization up-to-date.
