Everyone needs a place to store their clothes, but often the process of organizing that space can become overwhelming. Adding to the woes, storing your clothes can be a huge expense. Whether you are a student, single, or professional, your closet can hold your personal style and identity. Home closets can be chaotic, and it can be hard to keep them organized. There are tons of different options out there, from the traditional closet rods to the hanging clothes storage racks. You can even just go with the chest of drawers or the bookshelf. However, you can often save money by going with shelving units. They are often constructed of sturdy, and durable materials, they have the advantage of being space-efficient and can be easily cleaned.
So here are the tips and tricks to organize your closet.
- Arrange your clothes by category
As a homeowner, you probably have a lot of stuff in your closet. There is no one way to sort out your clothes but breaking your closet down into categories is a good way to start. This can help you identify what you own and what you don’t, which in turn can help you buy things that will get the most wear. By sorting out your clothes into categories, it will be much easier to find the pieces that you want to wear and throw out the things that don’t fit in with your style.
- Clean and empty your closet
Make yourself a drink and sit down comfortably. Close your eyes and let the thoughts come. Does your closet look and feel a lot like the one you do when you first wake up? Does it need reorganizing? If it does, you’re not alone. In fact, there’s a laundry list of reasons why your closet and life need organizing. Closets are great spaces to save extra items you don’t need, but they also can be a great space to organize your clothing. They can serve as a place to store items that don’t fit properly in your drawers and can be a great place to store items that you don’t need often but that you may need to pull out at some point. As a rule of thumb, if you haven’t looked at the item in a year or longer, chances are you don’t need it. Likewise, if you frequently use a piece of clothing, then clean it timely–of course, for that, you would need to ensure that your washing machine and dryer are in optimal condition (if not then consider availing of a washing machine and Dryer Repair as soon as possible). Once you are done with the laundry, fold it with care and put it in your closet. Refrain from piling up washed clothes on a chair or a couch!
- Hang the delicate, sturdy, and the fancy one
When you have so many clothes, it can be difficult to find space to hang them, especially tops and dresses. If you have an easily used space, then it is easy to keep everything contained and presentable. Closets are the bane of many a parent’s existences. Whether you organize your clothes, shoes, or accessories every weekend, or you have a room full of clothes that seem to defy you from ever looking organized, it can be a real hassle to deal with your closet.
If you’re like me, you probably have a lot of clothes that you bought before you started living the minimalist life, and you have some old clothes that you never wear. Organizing your closet is a big deal. It can help keep you sane and make you feel like you’re doing something about your clutter problem. But if you wait to do it until you’ve got piles of clothes to put away, you’ll never get anything done. So, why not start now? Make a game plan, try some new storage solutions, and start getting your closets in order. Get a Dumpster Rental if you have to; there are probably plenty of old clothes and accessories in there that are better discarded than donated.
If there’s one thing that clutters up our home and our mind, it’s clothes. We often buy more than we need, fill our closets with miscellaneous garments, throw out more than we recycle, and generally make ourselves miserable by not being able to keep ourselves clean and neat. Sure, we’re all guilty of this, but with a little effort, we can all make things a little easier for ourselves.
