Does walking into your closet lead to a headache? Are you constantly rifling through piles of clothing, shoes and junk in order to find anything suitable to wear?
If any of this sounds like you, it’s time for a closet intervention.
How can you transform your closet from disorganized to tidy? Here are five tips to help you get started on the path to clean:
Keep What You LOVE
One problem that many people face is hanging on to clothing, shoes and accessories that they no longer wear—or have never worn. Go through your closet and separate out everything that you truly love or need (like a work uniform). Only keep items that you actually wear!
Toss Everything Else
Once you’ve decided what you must keep, it’s time to get rid of the rest. Purging the stuff that doesn’t fit, is worn out or just doesn’t work for you can help clear out the clutter that’s keeping your closet from thriving. Give away or sell anything that no longer serves you, revealing more space to work with!
Get A System
Your next step is to decide on a system. What we mean is that everything should have a designated space within the closet. For example, sweaters and jeans might be folded on shelves, while dresses, suits and blouses all hang. Organize each section by either type of item or by function—casual clothing in one spot, work or more formal clothing in another. Having a system ensures you know where everything should be placed and reduces the stress that can come with trying to find a specific item and not being able to.
Add Accessory Solutions
From shoes to purses and beyond, accessories also need their own space in your closet. Try adding shoe racks or even over-the-door shoe holders. Hang hooks for purses, bags, belts and hats to ensure they are off the floor and in an easy to access space. Simple accessories holders can really optimize your closet space without breaking the bank.
Get A Professional Makeover
If you really want to take your closet space to the next level, you’re going to need to bring in a professional.
