Is your closet all chaos and no order? Now is the time to make sure there are no forgotten socks in the back of your wardrobe. We’ve put together easy tips on how to organize your closet, and more importantly, how to keep it organized.
You don’t have to get rid of everything that doesn’t spark joy, as Marie Kondo would advise you. Just start with throwing away those pieces of clothing you haven’t worn since your prom, or maybe longer. Instead of storing your clothes where you can’t see them, what about donating them to charity? The following tips will help you tidy up your closet.
It could be a lost pair of jeans or an old scarf. If you found in your wardrobe and didn’t know it was there, it’s probably something you didn’t really miss. This means one thing — get rid of it. You should only keep clothes you actually wear in your closet.
Put the items you wear most often at your eye level. Store the less-used pieces on lower shelves.
Yes, we know — you wore that sweater on your first date with your husband. But you haven’t actually worn it since then, and it’s just taking space. Keep only one or two pieces that bring back good memories and throw the rest away.
You probably wear your winter coat only in winter. Why does it have to take up space in your wardrobe? Take all your seasonal items and store them somewhere else besides the everyday closet. Put your winter or summer clothes in plastic boxes with lids or use vacuum-sealed bags to save more space.
Now that you can finally see all your clothes, don’t forget to take proper care of them. Before you put them back in the wardrobe, clean it first.
After you empty the closet, wipe it thoroughly and disinfect if necessary. Make sure you clean your wardrobe regularly now so that you don’t have to look for forgotten shirts in the back drawers again next year.
