Have you ever opened the door to a closet and wish the clothing inside would magically arrange itself? Keep dreaming friends, as technology has not made it this far (at least yet anyways). For now, we have to rely on our trusty two hands and a little bit of ingenuity. No one said organizing was easy, but the hardest part is getting the motivation to dig in. As well, there a few tips the experts use to make the job go by quicker.
Nobody wants to spend hours moving boxes or sifting through clutter; that kind of thing can drive a person crazy and cause you to call it quits long before you have even made any progress. Even the least resourceful of minds can get a lot accomplished by being prepared. Thus, before you grab the nearest garbage bag and start tossing things in, approach the job like any other with a can-do attitude and a checklist. Here are some helpful tips to help you organize a closet, whether it is a small one or a large walk-in.
How to Win the War: Organize a Closet
- Fold your clothes instead of hanging them
- Discard what you don’t need
- Store seasonal outfits in boxes
- Label boxes
To conserve as much as space as possible, folding clothes is the way to go. By doing this, you will likely have more than enough room for other items. For easy access, keep jeans, shirts, dress pants and other similar types together. Socks, ties and other miscellaneous pieces are better suited in drawers or baskets.
It can be hard to say goodbye to that faithful pair of jeans that you rocked in your youth, but there comes a time when every piece of clothing has to set sail. This is actually the number one cause of closet clutter, believe it or not, and could very well be all you need to do to clean up the space.
There is no need for sweaters and long sleeve shirts to be sitting alongside shorts and tank tops in the summertime, and vice versa. Not only will this help you save space, it will also allow you to choose an outfit more quickly.
Doesn’t it seem that whenever you are in a hurry, it is almost impossible to find what you need. To keep this from happening altogether and to avoid the hassle of frantically sifting through clothing, make sure to accurately label the contents of every box. This will eliminate the experience of searching for a needle in a haystack.
