You wake up in the morning and fling open your closet doors so that you can pick out what you’re going to wear for the day. Unfortunately, the task at hand proves to be quite the challenge because you are faced with piles and piles of clothes that you do not know where to start.
Do you feel like you’ve gotten used to having to iron out your clothes everyday because they tend to always be wrinkled when you take them out of the closet? Or that you’re also used to wearing different paired socks because you simply stopped bothering with hunting for the same pair?
Life will be so much easier if you take the time to organizing closet items! Here are some useful organizing closet tips that you need to apply NOW, for a stress-free and organized life.
• First thing that you need to do is to empty your closet. Place all of your clothes in a clean, open area where you can organize them all out. Prepare a box for you to toss in the clothes that you wont be keeping anymore. You need to sort out the clothes that you want to keep (and still fits you, of course) and those that you donate.
• The rule is that if you haven’t worn this particular piece of clothing for more than 8 months, its best to give it away. If some of these clothes are still in top shape, then try selling them online and earn a profit to buy new clothes. Same thing goes for shoes.
• After you’ve finalized your choice pieces of clothes, clean your closet thoroughly with a vacuum cleaner, some cleaning rags, and antibacterial spray. Let it air dry.
• Another organizing closet tip is to figure out why you consistently get it messy. Do you need extra shelves? Aren’t there enough hangers? Do you have sturdy hooks? Invest in some sturdy bins, hooks, and boxes so that you can keep things more organized. Maximize the storing capability of your closet.
• Buy the right types of items that certain clothes need, such as padded hangers for delicate fabric. Don’t use wire hangers, because they do not properly support clothing, and do not use plastic dry-cleaner bags because they attract dust and make the clothes smell musty.
• Organize your clothes based on how easy it would be for you to take certain pieces out in the morning. For example, you can color coordinate them and put together the same types of clothes together in one place, such as shirts all in one pile, and skirts in another.
• Clothes that are out of season do not have to be stored in the closet. Keep them in a box or trunk, and make sure that they’re stored tightly to prevent them from getting victimized by pests.
• The last organizing closet tip is to make sure that the clothes that you often use are easily accessible and that you don’t have to turn things over just to pick them out.
