Keeping your clothing organized can be difficult, particularly if you don't have much space to work with. However, there are a variety of helpful strategies you can use for clothing closet organization. The key is to create a system that you can continue to stick to in the long term as you build your closet. Here are some of the best tips for keeping your closet completely organized.
Schedule a time to declutter.
When you're very busy, it's easy for clothes to pile up and take over your closet. However, if you don't actually wear many of these clothes, it's worth taking a step back to see what could be donated or thrown away. If you can't remember the last time you wore a piece, or can't envision yourself wearing it again, that's a good sign it's time to get rid of it. Set a reminder on your calendar to declutter your closet once every season. Not only will this help you free up more space in your closet, but it can also remind you of old pieces that you have forgotten about and would love to wear again.
Designate sections for each of your items.
When you know exactly where everything is supposed to go, it makes it much easier to keep things organized. Take a good look at your closet and mentally create sections for shoes, dresses, pants, and any other item that you have a lot of. You can even create labels if you have a difficult time keeping things in order. Designating a spot for each of your items will ensure that you don't just toss things on any empty shelf, which can quickly lead to closet chaos.
Roll soft items into drawers to save space.
For items like t-shirts, pajama pants, and underwear, the best option is often to roll them up and stick them in drawers instead of folding or hanging them. They'll take up much less space, giving you more room for things like dresses and suits, which need to be hung up. Not only that, but when you have these items stored in drawers, they are much easier to see, so you can quickly find the option you are looking for.
Keep items organized by color.
It may seem like overkill, but this is truly one of the best ways to ensure that your items stay in their proper place. It also makes your clothing easy to find. When you think of an item you want to wear, you don't need to go digging through anything to find it - all you have to do is go to its color section and you will find it.
