Are Your Closets EXPLODING?

Are your closets exploding?

The need to hang on to every piece of clothing is very common.  When reorganizing closets, ask yourself, when was the last time I wore this item?   If it has been years, get rid of it immediately. The Goodwill and Salvation Army are always looking for donations. Once your closet is cleaned out of old or ill-fitting clothes you can get down to organizing! Organize all your clothes by color and face all hangers in one direction.

If you buy a new item, get rid of an old item!  Follow this rule and your closets will thank you!

In the future, once an item is removed from your closet, put the hanger to the right of all your clothes.  This way, you will have hangers available to use and it will not be difficult to locate them between clothing items in the closet.

Store seasonal shoes in bins in a basement or garage and only keep the current season’s shoes in your closet.  Again group shoes by color.

Keeping accessories, such as scarves and belts, in a large tote or basket will prevent them from falling on the closet floor and creating more clutter.
