Whether it is just you or the transitional season you should definitely organize your closet from time to time. It will help you realize how much clothes you got (in reality) so you can’t pull that same old I don’t have anything to wear phrase. Sometimes, when our clothes are not tied up, and it is kind of messy in our closets, you can’t really see what is hiding back there. I have prepared some ultimate tips and trick on how to organize your closet and clear up your headspace as well!
First of All…
Empty everything! Let all the clothes that you have from your closet and put it on the floor, on your bed or anywhere else. That way you can also have a better look at the space so you can remodel it the way it suits you at the moment. This is also an excellent opportunity to clean everything.
Try to declutter through every stuff that you have gotten out from the closet. This part can be stressful because it is natural that you want to keep (almost) everything, but the point is to leave something that you really need.
12 Months Limit
If there are some things that you haven’t worn for 12 or more months, you need to let them go. If you become emotional, let it aside for some time and then see if there is anything you can wear that item with. If not, put it in the goodbye box.
This 12-month rule can apply to your underwear as well. Opt for the panties that you wear the most – comfy and sexy ones. However, don’t keep the ones that are getting old or frayed. You can also roll them so they will be easier for you to find them.
Divide Clothes into Categories
It is always better to hang your clothes within categories and subcategories. For example blouses, pants, skirts, and dresses or long-sleeve, strapless and others. I like to place my clothes facing the same way. This trick makes it easier to browse through your items.
Purses on Sight!
Don’t hide your bags inside your closet. Put them somewhere visible so you won’t forget about having some! They shouldn’t be kept one inside the other. In that way, they can be damaged and reshaped.
Order the Shelves
Put the clothes in the order you need to wear it. So, on the top should be your underwear, socks and then shirts, sweaters, and your jeans.
If you are not so good at keeping your clothes organized, then you should use dividers. Put the ones you use the most up in the front rows.
Hang Belts and Scarves
These accessories are easily forgotten. They can be thrown in some dark corner of your closet, and even when you need them – you can’t find them. That is why you should let them be hanged somewhere visible so you won’t find them only when you organize your closet.
Jewelry on Trays
All those minimalistic gold and bronze trays are great for keeping your pieces of jewelry on them.
