Is your closet ready for the upcoming holiday season? If not, you may be pleased to know that getting your closet in order isn’t as hard as it may seem. The following are some tried and proven tips to get you started on the right foot.
Do you intend to take advantage of holiday sales? Are you expecting gifts of clothing, accessories, or shoes from friends and relatives? Before sales and the holidays hit, now is the time to declutter your closet so you have room for new items.
Our local team of South Jersey closet experts usually recommend getting rid of any items that haven’t been worn in the last year. Items in good condition can be given away while items in poor condition should be upcycled or thrown away. Anything that no longer fits, or that you don’t intend to use in the future should also be decluttered.

It’s time to make storage improvements in your closet. A company such as Closet & Storage Concepts of South Jersey can offer custom modifications that will not only simplify your storage but even improve your home’s overall value. Possible improvement options include adding a few shelves or additional hanging space, putting in special drawers for jewelry or other accessories, adding a custom-built shoe rack, or even building a slideout ironing board to make chores easier.
Organize in a Holiday-Friendly Fashion
Once your closet is ready, it’s time to re-organize it in a “holiday-friendly” fashion. Given the fact that there are often far more parties and formal occasions to attend near the end of the year than at other times of the year, be sure your party and formal clothes are in an easily accessible place, and that they are stored properly to prevent wrinkles and damage. At the same time, make sure casual clothes are still accessible if you will be cleaning or cooking. Having distinct areas in your closet based on when you use it will help you find items quickly.
Improve Your Closet
An organized closet is a time-saver and will help you reduce stress during the holidays. Furthermore, proper organization ensures your belongings remain in good condition, so they last longer than they would have otherwise. While it may take some time and effort to get rid of clutter, improve your closet, and organize it for the holiday season, the end result is well worth it.
