10 No-Fuss, Foolproof Ways To Organize Your Closet
Kickstart Your Closet Clean-Up With These Tips
You know that feeling when you see a messy wardrobe and lose your motivation to clean it up, precisely because everything’s a mess? I know how you feel! I get really discouraged seeing clutter as well. But there are ways to get the job done and organize your closet with less fuss. When you organize your closet, do it with the mindset that if you do it well now and keep it up, you’ll never have to do a major closet overhaul again. And for (sometimes) lazy girls like us, never having to clean up is a dream come true! Today I’ll be sharing tips and tricks I’ve learned from cleaning up my own closet, I think they’ll help you a lot as well.
1. Set Aside Space For Everything
One of the biggest problems you may have when you have to organize your closet is not having enough space. It helps to set certain areas or places for specific items: all your tops go on one rack, skirts on another, intimates in a box, and so on. Then you can go ahead and organize each section, one at a time!
2. Read Up
It also helps to read up or get inspiration from other people and experts! Having to organize your closet is a universal struggle, so you don’t have to go through it alone. Who knows, you might find tricks you never thought of before!
3. Use See-Through Bins
Clutter sometimes means not being able to see what’s in your closet exactly. So see-through bins can solve that problem! They also force you to organize your clothes properly or let you see when it’s time for a clean-up.
4. Leave Your Most-Used Clothes Out
Another way to make more space in your closet is to have a separate rack for pieces you always wear. Coats, cardigans, bags, and your most-used shoes can go on a ladder blanket or a chic rack in your room.
Sometimes when I look at my closet I get uninspired: it’s just racks and racks of clothes and shoes, and that’s a bit boring. So maybe adding a few personal touches or decor can help motivate you to make your closet pretty!
6. Fold Your Clothes Properly
Folding and storing your clothes properly is so important: clutter starts when you just randomly throw clothes into your closet and they pile up. So make it a point to hang, fold, or stack everything properly!
7. Group Colors and Shades Together
When you’ve got everything more or less cleaned up, come up a sorting system! This way, you can just follow the system and know where all your clothes are.
8. Have a “For Sorting” Pile
Speaking of sorting, laziness can strike when you have a pile of freshly-laundered clothes waiting to be stored and you just stuff them anywhere in your closet. If you don’t have time to sort them just yet, leave a rack or bin out and get back to it once you’re free.
9. Have an Inventory
Keeping track of what you have will also help you stay on top of your closet situation. Make even just a basic inventory—how many tops you have, how many pairs of shoes—just so you can keep track of everything you own!
10. De-Clutter Regularly
The most important way to organize your closet is to make a habit of it! If it’s something you know you have to do or you do regularly, there will be less mess to deal with in the long run.
