Decluttering and organizing has never been a fun activity. It was always considered a chore, especially to the couch potatoes of the world, except if you are naturally organized and decluttering is your thing. But these organizing tips are so easy to do, you won’t even have time to complain. Here are the top 10 ways to organize your closet, made easy.
- Use peg boards
Place the peg boards inside your closet doors. These are boards with holes in them. You can use hooks through the holes to hang some of your belts, purses, sunglasses and jewelry. These are inexpensive tools and are readily available.
- Transparent shoe boxes
Have you seen these slim, transparent shoe boxes? They are very ideal to put your shoes on them. It makes them readily available for you because you see what is inside and you don’t have to open every shoe box you have anymore. It also protects your shoes from parasites that may find a home in your lovely shoes while you are storing them.
- Underwear storage is a must
This is a box with a lot of square partitions where you can put your rolled-up panties and bras in. This is perfect for people who just dumps their underwear in a drawer and leaves it like that. This way, if you have this kind of container in your drawer, you won’t need to dump everything in anymore. Otherwise, your underwear will get stuck and the drawer won’t close.
- Hooking up your bags
This is a common problem, especially for the avid bag lover who has a collection of every bag imaginable. The problem with this interest is lacking some bag space in their closets. To provide your bags some loving and caring, hang them up in sturdy hooks in your closet. You save some closet space and you save your bags from deformity and molds.
- Get rid of unusable clothes
Not only clothes, but other stuff as well that you feel are not necessary to take up residence in your closet anymore. Don’t be a hoarder. Scan through some of your old clothes, shoes, bags and accessories and organize them in a flea market where you can earn just by selling your old stuff. Better yet, donate them to a charity where your unusable stuff will be put to good use.
- Invest on larger bins
Large bins with drawers can be a storage for some of your clothes when they no longer have space in your closet. They are a great convenience because they make you save some space and you will be tempted to fold your clothes neatly because they usually are made from transparent material.
- Use slimmer hangers
Slim hangers can give you more hanging space than the thick ones. More clothes will be able to get hanged in there saving you time folding them up. This will also give more room for some of your stuff in the closet where some of your hanged clothes used to be.
Label all your drawers of what is inside. This will give you easy access and less time looking for them in the future. This will also prevent you from opening up any drawer you can find. This will also save you from a lot of mess you create when you can’t find what you are looking for. To make the labels interesting, make them artistic and colorful so you will be tempted to read them before opening any drawers.
- Shelf dividers are important
Shelf dividers create a division among folded clothes, preventing them to spill over when they get too high. They are great at putting disorderly clothes in place and also organizing clothes according to their color, type and style for easier access.
- Color code your clothes
People do this to give them easier access to what they are looking for. This is a much faster approach than cluttering all of your clothes, looking for that one blue shirt. This will save you the time in fixing all the mess and clutter you have created after you find that shirt. This also gives your closet a great look, all being color coordinated, and it is also fun doing it.
These are just some of the easiest ways to organize a cluttered and space-lacking closet. The more you do this, the easier it will get and the more fun it would be. Knowing the perks you can have when you clean out and organize your closet, you will never be considering this a chore anymore at all. Remember that a closet is also a reflection of one’s personality. The peace of mind that comes along with it will also show what is inside and what is outside.
