Does clutter have you feeling a little stressed? Don’t fret-I have ideas to help you achieve efficient organization. All you need to do is designate some time out of your hectic schedule to clear out, clean up and organize your space. Simply follow these tips and you’ll be on your way to a more organized home in no time at all.
All of us have experienced openinng our closet and having an avalanche of clothes fall onto the floor. If you find your closet becoming a complete disaster time after time, it might be time for you to consider installing a closet system. Most people think closet systems have a hefty pirce tag, which is true, some do, but there are closet systems to match every budget. If you’ve decided this is the right move for you, you’ll want to clear out your entire closet so your system can be installed. This is a GREAT time to go through your clothes and make a few piles- Keep, Give & Donate. Keep the clothes you have and will continue to wear. Give some of your items you have grown up and out of to your girlfriends and donate the rest.
Once your system is installed and ready for use, start by putting back only your seasonal clothes. If it’s summer, be sure to place all of your summer articles of clothing in a spot that gives you easy access to them. Put your fall and winter items in the back and out of the way. Sort your clothes by category and color so it not only looks pretty, but it makes it easier to find what you need. Use drawers, shelves and hooks to fold your sweaters, stack your shoe boxes and display your purses and handbags. Create storage for your smaller items such as jewelry and belts. Use the more narrow drawers complete with dividers and section off tiny spaces for your items to keep them orderly.
One thing to remember is that you should “edit” your closet every 6-8 months by going through your closet and making those piles I mentioned above, Keep, Give & Donate. By clearing out, cleaning up and organizing your belongings on a regular basis you will have and mantain a tidy closet for years to come.
