Organizing A ClosetThursday, November 6, 2014
So you've cleaned out your closet and gotten rid of the things you don't want. Now what do you do?
Organize of course! I love being organized and putting everything in its place. When I can see everything I own (by de-cluttering) and have it all neatly laid out in front of me, I'm more likely to actually use everything.
Organize your clothes by season (I'm sure almost everyone does this).
Then I like to arrange all of my clothes by color. Since I own so many neutrals, it is really easy to pair different things with each other and by placing all like colors together, I can really see what I have.. Mix and match!
After grouping by colors, I then hang everything by sleeve length. Shorter sleeve (or no sleeve) items get hung up in the front (within each color) and longer sleeve items get hung up in the back. I'm still keeping my cool weather clothes and warm weather clothes separate.
Use similar hangars.
This may seem anal, but I use all white hangars in my closet. It gives a nice clean look to everything and since all of the hangars are the same, I know exactly how everything will hang.
Utilize a shoe rack.
Baskets are your friend.
