Organizing your closet is the best place to start when it’s time to think about spring cleaning. Save time with these helpful tips to clear clutter.
A few days ago you knew you had an early morning meeting at the office with some clients and the boss to close a big deal. You usually plan your outfits in advance to know what you will wear.
You jump in the shower, get out, reach for your hair dryer and it breaks. You frantically run next door to borrow one from a neighbor. You’re already stressed for running off schedule.
You walk into your closet and say- “Where the hell is that dress I wanted to wear?
There’s nothing worse than not finding the outfit in your closet for a special occasion, especially in the morning when you’re pressed for time.
You have so many clothes scrunched together on those skinny wire hangers you got from the cleaners. You get confused and stressed every time you look in your closet.
Organizing all the clothes in your closet according to their colors, you’ll easily find the items you’re looking for.
What’s the easy way to organize my closet space to find things easier?
Organize the closet rack with color-coded hangers. You’ll be able to distinguish between work clothes, weekend, and evening clothes.
Invest in white wood hangers.
For example, if you have that favorite black dress that you know you going to need to pull out next week place it on a hanger that is the opposite color of the actual item. To make the item easily viewable, place a black dress on a white hanger within the row of other black dresses using black hangers. A red satin hanger is also a standout color among other black hangers.
Be creative and block sections with different color hangers.
If you have a lot of space but everything looks like a disaster, purchase larger, thick hangers to organize your space. The clothes will be more separated and will be easier to find.
If you don’t have a lot of space, slimmer but sturdy hangers are recommended. Purchase a double hanging rod to maximize hanging space.
Bulky sweaters on hangers are a no-no. They take us too much space. Folding thick sweaters over the hanger takes is a space saver no- no. You can’t see the sweater at the top of the hanger for easy retrieval.
Buy a shoe organizer stackable bin and use it to store sweaters. What’s so great about this idea? You prevent stretching your sweaters. Hanging sweaters on hangers stretches them and makes them look old.
Purses take up a ton of space on a shelf-even when hanging. For purses you don’t use often consider under the bed storage in airtight sealed storage boxes. If you don’t have under the bed storage, consider buying a small three drawer night stand. Purses will be kept out of the dust. You can even make the nightstand into a makeup table with a mirror.
If you must store purses in your closet, think vertical instead of wide. Slim stacking bins can be labeled for each brand, style, and color.
Now that you have cleared up the top shelf space, buy clear plastic shoe bins and place on the top shelves. It’s a good idea to keep a small foldable step up ladder for hard to reach areas.The one below folds up thin and stores easily. Door hanging shoe organizers are also a space saver.
Behind the door organizers are great for scarves, jewelry, lingerie and socks. Door hanging shoe organizers are also a space saver.
If you have a walk in closet, place your favorites in season items towards the front to prevent digging on the back.
