Getting things organized can be a challenge in itself. But staying organized can bring on a whole new set of issues. Read on to get tips to keep your closet organized from Closet & Storage Concepts!
Put Things Away
It can be tempting to throw your clothes on your closet floor at the end of the day or leave clean laundry sitting in a pile in the laundry basket. However, putting things away is key to keeping your closet organized. It takes just a few seconds to hang a shirt up, and the cumulative effect of doing so can make a big difference in the overall organization of your closet (and your bedroom!). It’s important that you have adequate closet storage for all your belongings because, in order to put something away, it needs to have somewhere to go. For example, if you find that you pile your shoes in your closet because your shoe rack is full, then it may be time to invest in a larger shoe storage system.
Every week, set aside 15 minutes to do a quick closet cleanup. A good time to do this is on the weekend because closets tend to get messy from the hustle and bustle of the workweek. Spending a few minutes tidying things up each weekend will make your weekday mornings go that much smoother. Think of these 15 minutes as closet maintenance – a few minutes to organize your closet now could save you an entire day of cleaning out your closet later. This weekly cleanup can include re-sorting clothes, organizing your hangers, and putting any dirty laundry in the wash. It won’t take long, but it will prevent clutter from piling up.
Donate Some Clothes
A great way to keep your closet from getting too full is to donate or throw away one thing every time you buy a new clothing item. Not only will this help you pare down your wardrobe to just the things you love, but it’s great for those who like to shop but have limited closet space. A too-full closet is nearly impossible to keep organized and functional. Overflowing drawers, stuffed hanger rods, and stacks of shoes make it difficult to see what you have and make it hard to keep things organized. Donating or throwing away an item each time you purchase a new one will keep your closet from getting overstuffed.
