Closet Organization Tips

It can often be difficult to know how to organize a closet, especially when it’s smaller than you’re used to or when

Put away any clothes that isn’t season appropriate. When it’s summer, put away your thick sweaters, hats, scarves, etc. In the colder seasons, put away your shorts and any clothing that might be too thin.

Periodically declutter. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while now, you know that I’m a minimalist. I don’t believe in keeping clothes that you know you won’t ever wear again. Every so often, go through your wardrobe and figure out what you do and don’t wear anymore.

Keep the items you need and use most frequently in plain sight. This will make it easy to grab them quickly. It will also remind you of which pieces are your go-to items when you’re not sure what to wear or which accessories to add.

Use hooks to organize items that you’d like to easily see. This would include scarves, ties, purses (or other bags), and jewelry. If you hang these sorts of items, they’ll be easier to find, and you’ll more easily remember that you have them at all.

Work with the space you have. You might not have the ideal closet, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make the most of it. In my case, I have two closets – one with shelves and one with hanging rods and a little bit of shelf space. They’re both a little bit awkward, but I’ve learned to work with the space I have. Match your method of organization to the setup you have. While you might not prefer the method your closet space requires, it will be the best way to make the most of the space.

Always keep your closet clean and organized. Once your laundry is done, hang or fold your clothes and put it away. Come up with a simple system so this doesn’t take you too long. This will ensure that your closet stays clean and organized long after you’ve set it up.
