5 Steps to an Organized Closet

An organized closet is not a work of art. It just needs to work for you.

There are several ways to organize a closet. Do whatever works for you. Putting all of the same type of items together, so you can make outfits each day, is one way of organizing your space. Storing everything as outfits, so it’s all ready for you each morning, can be a great option if you don’t want to have to think about it each morning. The key to organizing a closet is to do what works for you.

5 Steps to an Organized Closet

EDIT, EDIT, EDIT. Identify what you don’t wear. Force yourself to eliminate anything you have not worn in the last year. You will free up some much needed space.

MAKE REPAIRS. Pull out anything that needs repair, cleaning or tailoring. Deliver them to the cleaners and tailor and you’ll have “like new” pieces in no time.

NO WIRE HANGERS. Invest in something better – anything! You are worth it. Having all the same hangers will maximize closet space.

HOOK IT UP. Add hooks to the closet door. They keep things off the floor, clean and in sight so you will use these items more.

MAINTAIN ORDER. You can keep your closet organized in 5 minutes spurts. Concentrate on one area at a time. Refold your sweaters or pick up anything that has landed on the floor. 5 minutes here and there will keep your closet organized.
