Effortless Organizing Solution – 5 Tips to an Organized Closet

Tip #1 - Take everything out of your closet so you have a clean slate. Consider installing a new closet system if yours is not functioning well (add double hanging rods or a system with adjustable shelves and rods). Paint the closet.

Tip #2 - If you haven't worn it in the last year or it doesn't fit, it’s time to let go of it. Make a game of it, for every two items you keep—let one go. This will reduce your wardrobe by one-third.

Tip #3 - We’re all trying to save money or find ways to make money. Instead of donating everything you are letting go of, consider taking your discards to a consignment shop. A fun idea is to have a “naked ladies” party—clothes swap with your girlfriends.

Tip #4 – After you have downsized your wardrobe, put your clothing back in your closet. Create an area or zone for each clothing type (shirts/blouses, pants, skirts, jackets) and then sort each zone (clothing type) by color. Then you will know where to put your clothing away.

Tip #5 - When you buy something new, then something must leave—the one in one out rule.
