There is something refreshing about organizing a part of your home. It’s a new start; everything feels better, looks better, and your space feels rejuvenated. After making over your closet, you’ll feel better about getting dressed, you’ll find it easier to decide on outfits, and you’ll probably discover clothes or accessories you haven’t worn in a while!
Ready to finally organize your closet once and for all? Sometimes the inspiration to get organized strikes, and you realize the task may be more daunting than you thought.
If you want a fresh start with your closet, here are some tips and tricks to help you check this task off your to-do list.
The first step to organizing is to declutter. Don’t waste time organizing things you don’t want to keep! Before you start, clear out the clutter for a new beginning with only items you love and want to wear. This step will make organizing much easier. If it helps, make “yes” and “no” piles. The “no” pile will consist of anything outdated, doesn’t fit, or doesn’t suit your lifestyle.
Don’t just organize to tidy up, but rather make your closet easily accessible so you can quickly choose what to wear each day. Separate your clothes by season and make the clothes you will wear now easily reachable for the next few months. Place out-of-season clothes in another area. You can also organize clothes by length, volume, or color. Perhaps you choose to put tank tops first, then sleeveless tops, then short-sleeved tops, and so on. Whatever makes the most sense or feels best to you, do that.
Want your closet to feel like a boutique? When you are shopping for pants, you know exactly where to go. Make your closet as organized as a clothing store and put all like clothing together! If everything in your closet is hung up or folded at random, it’s time to change that. Find what you need quicker by putting items together. All pants, jeans, dresses, and tops go together. Feel free to narrow it down further by organizing by color, activity, or most often worn.
Want to get extra organized and stay that way? Use closet organizers! If your closet is busy and it’s hard to find what you’re looking for, do yourself a favor and use some excellent organizational tools. Use extra hooks, bins, shelf dividers, additional shelves, over-the-door organizers, or whatever else you think will help—keeping smaller items like belts, scarves, wallets, etc. together by using helpful organizers. You can choose clear organizers if you want to see what’s in them or opt for something colorful to brighten up the space. Using labels can be helpful too! If you’re going to get serious, install drawers if you need extra storage space.
After you’ve organized your closet and made it clutter-free, beautifully coordinated, and accessible, you’ll want to make it look more appealing too. Make your closet a place you want to be in by making it look fabulous. If it needs paint, a new light source, or any maintenance, be sure to get that done. Display your shoes, jewelry, and accessories as if you’re stepping into a small boutique every morning. Add some fun wallpaper or a new mirror. If you have space, decorate your closet and make it like new again!
You did it! Organizing is no easy task, and it’s usually in the back of your mind to complete, but it doesn’t always get accomplished.
After you’ve finished organizing your clothes and refreshing your space, you might feel like you have some gaps in your wardrobe. After everything is separated and categorized, it’s easier to spot the things you need.
Wardrobe styling could be your next step. You’ll save time, feel your best in your clothes, and save money by avoiding making the wrong purchases. It’s a win-win for busy women!
