There’s nothing worse than standing in front of your closet, unable to find anything to wear. If that sounds familiar, don’t blame yourself. Your closet is to blame for your morning conundrum. If you’d like to be able to find an outfit in an instant and save time in the morning, look no further. Here are three tips to help you organize your closet in a weekend, just like the professionals.
Separate by Seasons
This might be the most tedious part but get in the habit of keeping winter and summer clothes stored when they are not in use, especially if wardrobe space is limited. Using sturdy storage containers lined with large plastic bags will protect your clothes from dust, bugs and moisture while they are not in use.
Hang Similar Items Together
Hang your clothes in groups. Put shirts, dresses, skirts, pants and coats together in the same spot. This will become second nature after a while, and you will drastically cut down the time it takes to find your outfit for the day.
Sort by Color
By hanging your shirts, skirts or sweaters in color groups, picking the perfect match for other items you wear that day will be a breeze. You’ll be amazed at how much easier it will be to find your clothes. You’ll be able to keep track of their condition and you will learn about your own style and fashion habits. Like the second tip, you will soon do this without even thinking about it. You can fold and color sort items and keep them in drawers for the same benefits.
You don’t need a complex or methodical practice to manage your wardrobe. These simple habits will keep your closet organized and help you get the most life out of your clothes. You can use these tips for other areas of your home, as well, such as your kitchen and bedroom. Sort and store similar items with similar uses together, for example. Before you know it, your whole home will be clutter-free.
