Size up Your Needs

The first step is to remove everything from the space and figure out which storage options will best fit your needs. With everything out of the way, it’s the perfect time to go through your clothes and let go of any pieces you haven’t worn in two years. Be sure to also take the time to declutter and throw out anything you don’t want or find another place for items that you don’t belong in your closet!

Organize your Life

If most of your clothes are short hanging items like shirts or skirts, you can instantly double your hanging space by installing an extra rod. Make the most of the area under the rod with a shoe rack or storage bins. Shelves are great for items that can be stacked such as sweaters or jeans. While bins are great for belts or scarves, clear containers are perfect for tops because you’re more likely to wear your favorite T-shirt if you can actually see it!

Maximize your Options

If your bedroom is small, move your dresser inside the closet and install shelves above it to maximize your storage needs. Another idea is to take advantage of the space behind your door by purchasing an over-the-door storage organizer. These plastic pouches are ideal for small items like shoes, socks or jewelry.

Divide and Conquer

Now that you have your closet organized, you can also add a little order to your wardrobe by separating clothes into categories such as shirts, skirts, pants, etc. You can take it a step further by dividing items according to color.

Even though organizing a closet may seem like a daunting task, once you have it in tip top shape it will be much easier to maintain. And, the best part is that you’re sure to save time and avoid lots of frustration with your new organized oasis!
