Closet Organization Made Easy

Keeping your closet organized is often an ongoing process. There is no doubt, we have all attempted multiple times year to organize and declutter our closets, but they always end up an unorganized mess due to the crazy lives we live.

However, there are some simple organization tips you can follow that will help you to get started on your closet clean-out and organization project and help to ensure that your closets never get too out of hand again.


Begin organizing and decluttering your closet by separating everything into categories from coats, dresses, shoes and more. By separating your closet contents into categories instead of just one huge pile, you can sort through things in a more organized fashion, while not getting overwhelmed.

Once you have your items sorted into similar piles, you can attempt to address which items you will be keeping and what you need to get rid of. Keep in mind that you are trying to make space and clear away the clutter. Only keep the items that you wear on a regular basis. Don’t keep items that are old and needs repair.  

As you sort through your belongings and decide which items you won’t be placing back into your closet make two piles, a donation pile, and a throwaway pile.

Reorganizing your Closet

When it comes time to place all of your newly-sorted items back into your closet think of how you can best organize that space for ease of access. By organizing your closet with like items together, it makes finding things much easier. Some even prefer to organize by color as well.

Consider keeping the clothes that you often wear in the most accessible part of your closet and moving seasonal clothes as the weather changes.

Save Space

Utilize closet shelving for bulky sweaters and denim. This will save you space for the items that need hung, plus it saves your sweaters from getting mishappen on hangers! In addition, having nice stacks of clothing allows you to see what you have available clearly.

If you have drawers in your closet, consider using the roll and tuck technique to store things like leggings, t-shirts or other small items. Using this type of method allows you to store more items and allows you to see what is available in your closet drawers.

Empty wall space is prime real estate for accessories like jewelry, belts, hats or anything else you own that could fit on your closet walls. Utilize decorative hooks, pegboards, or removable wall hooks to help you organize your wall of accessories.

Continue Decluttering

If you have begun the closet decluttering process but wish you could get rid of more, but aren’t sure what, try the backwards hanger method. Flip all of your hangers backwards and as you wear an item and hang it back up, flip the hanger forwards. After six months, if the hanger is still backwards, you know that you can donate the items on the hangers that are still backwards.

You can use these decluttering methods to work through each closet in your home and clean out the clutter that has been holding you back.
