Let’s face it, closets can be notoriously hard to keep organized. Knowing how to organise your closet can also be stressful when you know after a dressup or two, it’s back to square one.
Honestly, we’ve all been there; you’ve got piles of clothes but it still feels like you have nothing to wear. That’s because, no matter how many pieces you own, if they’re not organised properly, you’ll always struggle to see what’s what in your closet, making it harder to style outfits.
Maintaining an organized closet will always be an ongoing process. Why? That’s because you keep updating your closets with new stuff and dress up every single day but there are some things you can do to ensure you never spend more than minutes rearranging your clothes ever again. Let’s go!
1.) Empty and clean your closet:
First, give your closet a once and for a while makeover and pull out anything else still lingering inside it.
Let’s know what we’re dealing with, right?
Dive in and give your closet a proper deep-clean. Wipe down the shelves and scrub any scuff marks or dirt off the walls.
2.) Now, organize your clothing into orderly sections within the closet:
If necessary, get organizational tools like wall hooks, dividers, and shoe racks. Next, make sure you’re storing your clothing properly. For example, shirts should be hung up while thick sweaters should be folded. Last, if you’re having trouble keeping your wardrobe tidy, you may need to get rid of some clothing.
3.) Arrange your clothes into categories like pants, dresses, tops, outerwear, accessories, and undergarments. Then sort through every item in a single category before moving on to the next.
Keep similar items around one another. Keep all your belts in the same spot, fold your Adire fabrics alongside each other, and keep your workout shirts separate from your pajamas.
This tip may seem obvious, but it makes all the difference when you want to locate your cozy Adire jersey in a flash.
As you go through your stuff, make a commitment to only keep the clothes you know you love and wear with frequency. If anything gives you reason to hesitate, keep it aside for charity.Hang everything sturdy, fancy and delicate like your Adire wears. Maybe you have enough space to hang every single T-shirt you own, but if you don’t, then stick with hanging the obvious stuff.
That means delicate items like dresses, skirts, and lingerie, fancy items like suits, and sturdy, structured pieces like coats and blazers.
4.) Keep your frequently used clothes at eye level.
Keep everything you wear on a regular basis in the middle of your closet or where you can take them out to wear easily without scattering the arrangement.
Keep your lesser-used pieces directly above or below your most popular clothes, and move your least-worn items to the top shelf.
It’s way easier to compare similar clothes when they’re all grouped together in front of you, making it easier to get rid of the things you know you have too much of or don’t want. Other benefits are:
• You’ll find the items you are looking for faster.
• You can see what you have and in turn, choose your outfits more easily.
• You’ll get dressed swifter with less trying on and taking off.
• You’ll maintain the cleanliness with less effort.
• You’ll know what you already own lots of, helping you to curb unnecessary shopping.
• You can start the day in a more positive way.
Having an organised closet boosts your confidence to even want to dress up apart from these other benefits. Give it a shot.
