Closet Organization Made Easy

Keeping your closet organized is often an ongoing process. We’ve all attempted to declutter our closets; however, they seem to always revert back to their unorganized state.

Still, there are some simple organization tips you can follow. These tricks will help you to get started on your closet clean-out and organization project. Ensure that your closet never gets too out of hand with these 4 steps:

Categorize

Begin organizing and decluttering your closet by separating by category. Category types can include shoes, dresses, and coats, to name a few. Instead of one large pile, categorizing allows you to sort in an organized fashion. As well, you’re less likely to get 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 need repair.  

As you sort through your belongings and decide which items you won’t be placed back into your closet make two piles, a donation pile, and a throwaway pile. Junk Doctors in Raleigh, Charlotte, and Greensboro are happy to help with any junk removal, and donation picks up. Junk Doctors will pick up your items for donation and take them to the donation station of your choice and send you a tax-deductible form for your records.

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’ve started the decluttering process but aren’t sure what to get rid of, try the backward hanger method. Flip your hangers backward and as you wear an item, hang it the other way. After six months, any items that are still backward are donated.

You can use these decluttering methods for each of your closets. When you’ve collected your donation and junk piles, Junk Doctors is ready to help!
