Lately i have been ignoring my closet quite a bit. If you’re like me & have been putting off organizing your closet and letting go of all the stuff you no more care to wear because it seems like a herculean task, check out these 10 tips that are sure to make your life easier. Read on.
– Give it a quick sweep
Put all your out-season clothes into storage or at the back of your closet to make room for in-season items.
– Trust your gut
Be generous and go with your gut feeling. Discard or donate those items that you have not worn or used in a long time.
– Decide and be firm
If you do not fit into a particular clothing or do not like the way it looks, get rid of it.
– Separate according to taste and need
Group your clothing like dresses, jeans, tees and pile them neatly at eye level keeping in mind the frequency of use.
– Keep accessories handy
Accessories like scarves, belts, trinklets should be placed on hangers so they are easy to grab during rush hour.
– Don’t ponder
Make sure to give away at once what you’ve decided to let go. This action will stop you from sneaking extra items back into your closet.
– Get a hanging laundry bag
This makes sorting of different apparel types simpler and can be carried easily to the washing machine for a wash.
– Organize your shoes
Keep the sandals/shoes you wear on a daily basis at hand’s reach, while the occasionally worn ones can be tucked in an overhead space.
– Spray in sweetness
Wouldn’t you like your closet to linger with a soothing scent? If so, spray air freshener whenever you’re cleaning or dusting.
– Shop wisely
This may be difficult, especially if you’re one to get influenced easily. Once your closet is functionally organized, spend a few minutes making a wish-list for future shopping.
