Do you have countless pairs of pants, shirts and shoes? Do you ever wonder where you put that favorite top? Or why all of your pants fit in a certain space last month but they don’t now? Closet struggles are common but there are ways to fix those problems. Here are a few favorite tips for making the most of your closet: Donate, Sell or Toss: First and foremost, go through everything in your closet. A good rule to live by is to get rid of anything you haven’t worn in the last year (unless it’s a specialty item such as a dress for a wedding). We tend to hold onto things that we hope one day will fit again or will come back into style but those are not wise ways to think when you are trying to optimize space in your closet. From there it is up to you what to donate, sell or toss. Organize: Next is to organize. Make piles of what’s left based on clothing type and then organize by color. This will make your life so much easier when it comes to looking for clothes. You’ll know exactly where each type of clothing is if you put them all together and if you categorize by color you’ll always be able to find what you’re looking for. Systems & Layout: If your current layout isn’t working for you then maybe it’s time to reassess and purchase a new closet system. Simple systems can be found at many retailers such as Wal-Mart and Home Depot. If you are looking for more intricate pieces and systems that aren’t too costly then your best bet is IKEA. Consider adding a wardrobe or additional closet to your space if everything won’t fit in your current closet. IKEA’s closets and closet systems are fairly customizable so you can choose for what works for you. Best practices: For drawers, fold clothing and stack vertically so that they are stacked from the front of your drawer to the back. This will allow you to see each piece of clothing in your drawers so you’ll never need to dig through to find what you’re looking for. Clear storage boxes are perfect for shoes, belts and accessories. You’ll be able to see inside and won’t lose track of your stuff. It’s important to take into account the size of your closet, if you have additional space to add in other furniture for storage, and the type of system/storage that will work best for you and your wardrobe. If you have a lot of items that need to be hung or you just prefer to hang your clothes then you will want to go with a system that has more hanging space than drawer space and vice versa if you like to fold your clothes and store in drawers. Be mindful of your space and your stuff and you’re on you way to an organized closet.
