How To Keep Your Closet Organized All Year Round
Whether you’re a fashion enthusiast or just looking to keep your closet organized, this article is for you!
It’s that time of year again when we all start thinking about organizing our closets. Whether you’re looking to declutter before the holidays or simply want to start the new year off with a clean slate, this three-month plan will help you get your closet in order and keep it that way all year round.
The first step is to take everything out of your closet and sort it into three piles: keep, donate, and trash. This is where you can be ruthless – if you haven’t worn it in a year (or more), chances are you won’t miss it. Once you’ve sorted everything, put back only the items you’re keeping.
Next, invest in some storage solutions to help keep your closet organized. This could be anything from plastic bins for seasonal clothing to extra hangers for your everyday items. If you have the space, consider adding a dresser or shelving unit to store items like shoes and accessories.
Finally, establish some simple rules for yourself and stick to them. For example, always hang up your clothes after wearing them and put away any shoes or accessories that are lying around. If you make a habit of putting things back in their proper place, your closet will stay organized all year long!
Month One: Declutter Your Closet
It’s time to declutter your closet! This is the first step in keeping your closet organized all year round. Take everything out of your closet and sort it into three piles: keep, donate, and trash. Keep only the items that you love and that are in good condition. Donate the items that you no longer want but are still in good condition. Trash the items that are damaged or that you no longer want.
Now that you have decluttered your closet, it’s time to start organizing! Begin by grouping like items together (e.g., all of your shirts in one group, all of your pants in another group). Then, within each group, organized by color. This will make it easier to find what you’re looking for and will make your closet look more organized. Finally, hang up all of your clothes so they’re not wrinkled or creased.
If you follow these steps, you’ll be well on your way to having an organized closet that will stay that way all year round!
Month Two: Maximize Space & Organization Tools
If your closet is still feeling cluttered after month one, it’s time to get serious about maximizing space and utilizing organization tools. This is where those extra hangers come in handy! Start by hanging all of your clothes with the thin side of the hanger facing towards the center of your closet. This will create more space and help you see all of your clothes at a glance.
Next, invest in some good storage containers. You’ll want to use these to store out-of-season clothes, shoes, handbags, etc. Be sure to label each container so you know what’s inside. Finally, take a good look at your closet door. If it’s not being used effectively, consider adding hooks orana over-the-door organizer to make better use of the space.
Month Three: Designate Spaces for Different Clothing Items
The third month of your closet organization plan is all about designating spaces for different clothing items. This means that you will need to take a good hard look at your wardrobe and decide what needs its own space.
For example, you might want to dedicate a section of your closet to formal wear, another section to work clothes, and another section to casual clothes. By creating dedicated spaces for different types of clothing, you will be able to keep your closet more organized and make it easier to find the items you need.
In addition to designating spaces for different types of clothing, this month you will also want to start thinking about how you can better utilize the space in your closet.
This might mean hanging shirts on hangers instead of folding them, or investing in some shelves or storage bins for items that are currently taking up too much space. By making the most of the space in your closet, you will be able to keep it more organized and reduce the risk of items getting lost or misplaced.
We hope that this three-month plan for keeping your closet organized all year round has provided you with the motivation and clarity you need to get started. Remember, organizing your closet takes time, effort, and dedication but it will be worth it at the end when you can easily find the items of clothing you’re looking for each day.
If you follow these steps every month, we promise that by December, your closet will look like a society that even Marie Kondo would approve of!
