Closets are easy to neglect. It’s hard to motivate yourself to spend time putting clothes away during your morning rush. Having a closet that’s organized in a practical way makes it easier to find what you need when you need it, and it makes it easier to keep things organized. Read on to find out how to organize the clothes in your closet.
When organizing their hanging clothes, many people choose to group items based on season or by article. There is, of course, more than one way to do something. However, there’s another way that works well both logistically and in helping finding outfits easily. The cluster method is recommended by many organizational experts as the best way to organize clothes in your closet. “Clusters” refer to groups of clothing items, generally five to eight pieces, that work together. Arranging your hanging clothes in clusters, primarily grouping them together by color, helps keep outfit options easy to find. You end up spending less time looking for specific items to match because they’re already together. It also helps to avoid the age-old dilemma of a closet full of clothes with nothing to wear. Adding items to each cluster rather than thinking of an item as independent can simplify your clothes-buying process and avoid the accumulation of excess clothing.
Now that we’ve covered how to hang your clothes, let’s move on to the other storage methods. Open storage systems often work better than closed bins or dressers. Shelves or open baskets help keep things visible, accessible, and help prevent clothes from getting crammed into back corners of drawers. If you don’t have room to hang all of your pants, fold and stack them on shelves rather than putting them in drawers. Shelves are also great for storing folded stacks of shorts and T-shirts. Baskets work well for socks and undergarments, and can still stay hidden by keeping the basket tucked away on a shelf. Another perk of these open storage systems is they make it very easy to put things away.
