The closet is often an overlooked space. When we’re in a hurry, it’s tempting to just dump everything in, especially when the closet is not in plain view of others. However, cleaning and organizing the closet can give you a refreshing feeling. An organized closet also allows you to easily locate your things: jeans, work clothes, or sweater.
It only takes 7 steps to organize the closet. Now here’s the guide on how to organize your c
- Clear everything out.
The first thing you need to do is take out everything from the closet. Clear everything out: the shoes, jeans, pants, clothes, sweater. This allows you to have a clean slate. Reorganizing the closet is much easier when it’s emptied out first.
- Sort the clothes.
The next step is to sort the clothes into your preferred grouping: color, type, or function. The most common way of sorting is to group clothes according to type. For instance, you can group together the undergarments, bottoms, tops, and shoes. If you want to be more specific, you can subgroup them. For example, the tops can be subgrouped into sweaters, t-shirts, blouses, etc.
Group together the clothes that you feel you no longer need. If you’re having a hard time deciding which clothes to let go, you can ask help from a friend or a family member. These clothes will just take up space in your closet. Donate them to others who have better use of them.
- Clean your closet.
Since you have not yet arranged the clothes back in the closet, now is the best time to clean it. Do a quick clean while the closet’s empty. Dust and wipe the shelves. Vacuum the nooks and corners, and buff the scruff marks. Give your closet a fresh start before putting the things back in.
- Reevaluate the closet space.
Take this opportunity to reevaluate the closet space. Try to picture out how the clothes will fit in and how neatly will they look once you put them back in. Decide whether you want to hang them or just fold them in stacks, or both. You can add in new storage ideas, like adding in clothes rack or shower rods.
- Put your things back in.
Once you have decided how to arrange your clothes and stuff, it’s time to put them back in. In arranging them, you can simply follow what you had in mind when you’ve reevaluated your closet space. However, it’s also nice to make little adjustments as you go along.
- Reevaluate your closet regularly.
To keep your stuff clean and organized, you need to follow your system of arrangement. However, to always give it a fresh look, it’s also nice to regularly reevaluate it. If you think of new ways of organizing or sorting out, you can try it as well. Don’t wait for years before you reorganize your closet again. It should be a continuing process.
