10 Closet Organization Tips

1) Store cloths with “sentimental” value in another location. Keep your autographed jersey or shirt from your first date separate from your everyday cloths.
2) If you haven’t worn it in a year, remove it from your closet. Conduct a closet rehab twice a year.
3) Use the same style hangers for a uniform look. “NO WIRE HANGERS!!!” Wood or velvet hangers are an excellent choice.
4) If it doesn’t fit perfectly, remove it from your daily closet. You are less likely to wear an item that doesn’t fit properly.
5) Iron cloths before putting them away. When deciding what to wear the next day, having to iron cloths can make your choice for you.
6) Keep like items together. Long sleeve button down shirts, polo style shirts, blazers, work pants, etc… It’s easier to put items away when they have a home.
7) Remove out of season clothes from your closet. Winter sweaters and tweed suits should be removed for spring and summer.
8) Keep a donation box handy or in a near room. Occasionally toss items in the box as you find items to donate. When the box is full, donate it. No stress on timing.
9) Sort by color.
10) Accessories such as shoes, scarfs, and belts should be organized in their own section.
