We’ve all heard the saying, “a place for everything and everything in its place,” but how many of us actually live by it? If a quick look in your closet reveals not a pair of shoes in place and an unorganized pile of sweaters, you are not alone. Begin your journey to closet clarity by practicing the tips below.
To get started on refreshing your closet, Linda Cobb, author of The Queen of Clean Conquers Clutter, recommends that you, “remove everything from shelves and floors and sort as you go. Make piles for ‘keepers,’ ‘not sure,’ and ‘get rid of.’”
Blogging for SheKnows, Carol Test suggests using “the packing list principle.” “If you don’t love it, don’t pack it. On vacation, you look your best because you bring your newest and nicest outfits, leaving the backups at home. Thin your closet according to the same principle. Aim to remove 50 percent of items taking up space.”
Test also advises grouping clothing by event such as “work” or “workout” and to hang entire outfits together. “To assemble an outfit, hang the top next to the skirt and place your pumps beneath it. This way, the outfit as a whole is ready to wear,” she says.
