9 SIMPLE STEPS TO CLOSET ORGANIZATION
ready to organize your closet, but unsure where to start?
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!
