Isn’t a clean, organized closet the best thing ever? It makes dressing up in the morning so much easier, and it makes creating new combinations so much easier since you’ll be able to see everything. Unfortunately keeping a closet tidy isn’t always easy. When you’re in the process of picking an outfit your closet easily becomes a big mess. If your closet is properly organized, keeping a tidy closet will become a lot easier. Here are a few tips for you!
Kick-off With a Clear-Out
If you want to make and keep your closet tidy, we recommend starting by doing a big clear-out and to keep doing this every year. To make clearing out your closet a lot easier, this is the best strategy: Make 3 different piles, a sell pile, maybe pile and toss pile. And if you’re the creative type, you can even make a ‘customize’ pile.
One Comes, One Goes
If you’re like us, your closet is always highly overcrowded. But since you probably want to keep shopping like your life depends on it, we have one tip that can help keep your closet tidy. We dare you to try the ‘one comes, one goes’ principle.
So every time you buy a new piece of clothing, you ditch an old one. This keeps your closet from getting overcrowded and you’re sure you don’t end up with lots of clothing you never wear anyways. What’s the use of having loads of clothing that you never wear? Exactly, nothing. It’s not about the volume.
Store Seasonal Items In Boxes
If you want to keep your closet tidy and not overcrowded, it can help to swap your seasonal items a few times a year. For example, you could get some boxes that fit underneath your bed and use them to store seasonal accessories like scarves.
When the season changes, you just do a quick switcheroo, and off you go! We also like to use this strategy when it comes to shoes. After all, you’re probably going to be wearing more boots in winter and more sneakers in summer. So swap those shoes, and you’ll have more space for other things.
Use Drawer Organizers
If you have a closet with drawers, you should be adding drawer organizers. Drawer organizers are a great way to make your drawers look organized and prevent them from becoming one big pile of stuff. For example, you could use drawers with drawer organizers to store your underwear, but it’s also a handy way to store jewelry or other small items.
Organize By Category, Followed By Color
Alright, now we’re really getting in the organizing stuff. Because how do you organize the clothing that’s still inside your closet, and not put away in some box for another season? Easy. You start off by organizing everything by category, and once you’ve done that, you organize everything by color. It makes picking an outfit so much easier. Hours of searching for that one piece of clothing will be history.
