How to Organize Your Closet

Organizing your closet may seem like a daunting task, but once you have got everything tidied up, you will be so glad you did! Here are our top tips for getting your closet space organized.

Getting the same type of hanger for everything in your closet will help give it a seamless look. Using skinny hangers will give you more space if you have a lot of clothes that need to be hung up. The ideal hanger should not let your clothes slip off or cause the shoulders of your garments to crease up.

Put your clothes into categories like sleeveless, short sleeve, dress shirts, and so on. Once you have done this, color code your items so that you can easily find what you are looking for when you enter the closet. Color coding looks nice and makes it much easier to find the specific article of clothing that you are looking for.

Belts, ties, and scarves can either be hung up or you can roll them for storage in a bin or drawer. Pick whichever style of organization you prefer. When storing purses, stuffing them with paper can make them stand up and avoid creases. For tall boots, a rolled-up magazine will accomplish the same thing. The paper also helps suck moisture and odors out of your belongings. Ball caps can simply be stored in stacks. Color code these as well.

T-shirts are typically stored in a dresser. Rolling these, as opposed to folding, can help keep designs or emblems visible so that you know which shirt you are looking at when you open your drawers. This trick is especially useful for kids or college students.
