STEP 1 —

Remove everything from your closet into a large, open area. If you don’t have a lot of space, use your bed.

 

STEP 2 —

Sort contents into general categories of similar items— put all the tops in one pile, all the bottoms in another, and so on.

 

STEP 3 —

Decide what general categories you’ll keep stored in your closet. Consider the clothes you wear the most and the storage space you have.

 

STEP 4 —

Move anything that isn’t going back into your closet.

 

STEP 5 —

Within each separated, general category, decide the items you’re going to keep, and the items you’re going to get rid of.

 

STEP 6 —

Deep clean the interior of your closet.

 

STEP 7 —

Moving by category, designate a space in your closet for each general category, and allocate your most accessible hanging and shelf storage, to the things you use most.

 

STEP 8 —

Determine if there’s anything you need to buy to complete your closet organization— organizing bins, extra shelves or another hanging rod, shoe racks, a jewelry organizer?

 

STEP 9 —

Remind yourself where you put everything by labeling each category with a sticky note. This will help you get adjusted to your new, fresh, and clean closet!
