How To Organize Your Closet

Contact Professional Organizer Houston to get your closet organized. Make getting dressed fast and easy every morning.

Organizing a closet is never easy, especially if you have more stuff than available closet space.

The fastest way to organize your closet is to own fewer clothes because visually it will be easier to find what you’re looking for.

To organize your closet, take everything out and put  it on your bed; go through each piece of clothing one item at a time and assess when you wore it last.  If you haven’t worn something in one year and it’s in good repair, donate it to charity.

Start three piles of items: those you want to keep, those you will donate/throw away and a pile for maybes. Anything with too much wear, holes or stains needs to go straight into the trash. Holding on to old, damaged or unused items creates clutter, which slows down the flow of energy.

Few tips for organizing your closet

Tip 1: Don't keep what You Don’t Need/Wear
Tip 2: Go through your closet twice a year to maintain an organized wardrobe
Tip 3: Break the project down into small chunks, so its not so overwhelming
Tip 4: Get rid of all the wire hangers and dry cleaner bags cluttering up the closet
Tip 5: Use all the same hangers
Tip 6: Have the hangers facing the same way
Tip 7: Separate the types of clothes – group shirts with shirts, pants with pants, dresses with dresses
Tip 8:Organize by color – after you’ve separated the clothes by type and style - now it's time to organize them by color – all white short sleeve shirts together, all blue jeans togehter, etc.
Tip 9: Don’t keep anything on the floor 

Got messy closet? It is time to get organized!

Getting rid of items you don't wear on a regular basis is a key part of keeping your closet clutter-free.
