Conquering Your Closet -  9 Helpful Tips To Organize Your Style

Conquering Your Closet - 9 Helpful Tips To Organize Your Style

“What am I going to wear?” You've stood in front of your closet asking this question.

There is only one thing more frustrating than not knowing what to wear and that is not being able to find what you know you want to wear. Where is that black tank top you know is in your closet somewhere? *pulling hair out* Your ride will be here in 10 minutes and you can’t find the ….. fill in the blank. *pull more hair out*

To keep from losing your hair and cool, you need to get organized. You need a closet that you can open and see just what you’re looking for. Below are some tips and tricks to organize your closet so that it works for you instead of against you.

Sort and cull your wardrobe.

Look through every item and assess what you actually wear. If you haven’t worn it in over a year, it’s time to donate to your local charity. Take a look at your clothes and assess what you wear most, least, or not at all. If an item doesn’t fit any longer or is damaged, let it go too.

Store what is out of season

Let the season and frequency of use guide you to what to store and what to keep hanging in the closet. This will free up space and make it easier to spot the piece you’re looking for.

Organize by color and type

For example, shirts can be sorted first by sleeve length and then by shade. All of your options for pairing pieces in your wardrobe are easy to spot when you can see them by color and type.

Choose your hanger

Using one type of hanger will look neater and keep clothing at an even level. Use whatever type you prefer, wood, plastic or wire.

Fold items that stretch

Clothing like sweaters that will stretch out of shape on a hanger need to be folded and hung over the hanger or fold and put on a shelf if you have one. Place heavier items on the bottom of the stack. Arrange these items by function and color.  If your closet doesn’t have shelves, consider using part of your clothing rod for hanging canvas ones.

Hand garments inside out on hangers

To avoid those annoying bumps on your shoulders from garments hanging and stretching, turn them inside out and hang them. That way the bump will be on the inside…no bumps to be seen.

Manage accessories

Store bags, belts, ties, scarves, and other accessories in plain sight on hooks or racks, which can be attached to the inside of your closet door.

Use containers

For those items that can’t be hung consider a matching set of baskets—such as socks, undergarments, scarves or hats.

Have a system for storing shoes.

These are all good options:  shoe rack on the floor, a hanging shoe organizer, see-through plastic boxes, or original shoeboxes with photographs stapled to them to identify the boxes’ contents. Stow shoes you don’t wear frequently in labeled plastic boxes on a high shelf, in another closet, or under your bed.

It will take some time to get your closet organized but it will save you time in the long run. No more stress and no more hair pulling. You can knock this out on a Sunday afternoon.
