How do you keep a closet organized? It’s a simple question but can have a complicated answer. So that your closet doesn’t look like the picture above and more like the picture below, here are a few tips.
1. Donate anything that is broken and that you are no longer willing to repair, anything that you would no longer buy, haven’t worn this season, and too small. It’s always hard to get to rid of some things because you feel as if some day you’ll wear it again but chances are you won’t. The more clothes that you can donate or give away to charity the more new clothes you can get and the fresher and newer your clothes will feel, seriously. I donated to Goodwill about 2 bags of clothes and now my closet feels much bigger and definitely much newer.
2. Don’t try to cram in too many clothes or shoes in one space. The more space the better. Use more space for clothes instead of less. The more space the better even you don’t have masses of clothes. Also make sure to keep just to clothes in your drawers, hanging space, and shelves. If you add other items they will tend to get in the way.
3. Don’t try to over complicate your organization. If you try to organize by color, and brand you’ll never keep it neat. Organize by clothing type not style, brand, color, pattern, and size. For example, I keep all of my shirts, t shirts, and tanks in one place.
4. Anything that needs to be accessible should be accessible. Don’t put your summer clothes on the shelf if it’s summer!
Happy closet organizing!
