FOLD THINGS INTO THE SAME SIZE

Fold your clothing so that like items are folded to the same size— you’ll optimize your storage space and your closet will also be more visually appealing!

HANG CLOTHES BY CATEGORY

Hang clothes by category, in the same direction, with the hangers pointing the same direction — streamlining your closet will help you easily navigate your closet, and quickly find your things.

 

DESIGNATE A HOOK FOR WORN, BUT CLEAN ITEMS

Designate a hook, or shelf, for items you’ve worn but aren’t dirty. Leave them here until you have a spare moment to hang, or fold them.

 

USE A LAUNDRY HAMPER

Purchase an attractive clothes hamper, with separate sections for light and dark clothes, and try to separate your clothing as you toss them in the hamper.

 

CHOSE A HOME FOR EVERYTHING

Designate a home for everything, and determine a system to return each thing to its home. If necessary, label where things go, so that putting things away is a simple matching game.

 

DESIGNATE AN AREA FOR IN-PROGRESS STUFF

Within your home, choose an area for in-progress things, like incomplete projects, returns, or errands.

 

PRIORITIZE ACCESSIBILITY

Easy access to the things you use most, trumps everything else.

 

DON’T MOVE THINGS SEASONALLY

Rather than rotating your closet seasonally, organize your closet so that everything stays put, all year—you’ll save yourself time and confusion in-between seasons.

 

ACCORDING TO WOMEN, THEIR TOP FIVE, MOST MISPLACED ITEMS ARE SHOES, A CHILD’S TOY, WALLETS, LIPSTICK, AND THE REMOTE CONTROL.
