Tips For Organizing Your Closet
We all know that organizing your closet can be a daunting task and seems like a never ending process, but with a few tips and tricks to help along the way it will make the process fun and leave you feeling much better!
First things first, you must empty and clean your closet, and declutter your clothes by category. Place them all on your bed, so it’s easier to compare and decide what will be going. Out with the old and in with the new! Once you’ve sorted through them, store your clothes by category back into your closet using coordinating hangers. Hang anything delicate, fancy, or sturdy and stack thick items like jeans and sweaters.
Next step is to design your ideal closet space! Look at the positive features your closet may already have and use those to your advantage. Do you have enough hanging space and vertical shelves to fit your needs? If not, add in some bins, built-in shelving, or multiple hanging racks! This will allow you to organize your closet in a way that will provide a clean and simple look.
