Organized closet

Looking to clean and organize your closet? This step-by-step guide is here to help you transform your cluttered space into a functional closet you will be able to maintain. From decluttering to smart storage solutions, we'll show you how to bring order and tranquility to your closet.

Start with Shelving

Begin your closet overhaul by tackling the top shelves, which often become a catch-all for items used less frequently. To effectively declutter, create three distinct piles: keep, donate, and trash.

Here’s how to categorize:

  • Keep: Items you regularly use, bring joy, or have sentimental value.
  • Donate: Good condition items you haven’t used in the past year, don’t fit, or are no longer your style.
  • Trash: Items that are damaged, stained, or worn out beyond repair.

For items you decide to keep, consider our Zip Top Storage Box for sturdy, protective storage. Its stackable design and ID window make organization effortless.

Incorporate Cube Storage Bins for additional organization. These bins fit most cube shelving units and are perfect for storing a variety of items. With durable construction, 360-degree pull handles, and labeling windows, they keep your closet tidy and manageable.

How to Organize Hanging Clothes

  • Assesment: Begin by removing all hanging items from your closet to assess what you have. This allows you to see everything clearly and make informed decisions about what to keep.

  • For each item, ask yourself:
    • Have I worn this in the last year?
    • Does it fit well and make me feel confident?
    • Is it in good condition, free of damage and wear?

  • Organization: Once you've decided what to keep, consider organizing your clothes in a way that makes sense for your lifestyle. Some prefer organizing by category (dresses, shirts, pants), while others by color or season. This personalization makes it easier to find what you need and keeps your closet looking neat.

  • Protection: Use our Garment Bag for items that need extra care, such as formal wear, delicate fabrics, or seasonal pieces. These bags protect your clothes from dust, moisture, and wrinkles, ensuring they're ready to wear when you need them.

  • Maintenance: Regularly review and rotate your hanging clothes to reflect seasonal changes or updates to your personal style. This practice keeps your closet relevant and prevents clutter from accumulating.

Organizing Folded Clothing

The folded clothes in your closet often suffer from being out of sight and out of mind, leading to a jumbled mess. Here's how to tackle this issue:

  • Sort and Simplify: Begin by sorting through your folded items, letting go of those you haven't worn or that no longer fit.

  • Categorize: Organize your keepers into categories for easier access.

  • Optimize Storage: Once categorized, the challenge is to keep these items visible and accessible. Our Hanging Closet Organizer provides a structured space for your folded clothes, with compartments that make it easy to see and access everything. This solution turns your pile of folded garments into an organized display.

Shoe Organization Made Simple

Shoes can easily become a cluttered pile at the bottom of your closet, making it hard to find the pair you need when you're rushing out the door. The solution lies in recognizing the importance of each pair and giving them a proper home.

  • Evaluate: Look at your shoe collection and keep only what you truly use.

  • Categorize: Group your shoes by occasion for better organization.

  • Strategic Storage: The final step is finding a storage solution that keeps your shoes protected, visible, and accessible. For the pairs you use most often, our Over the Door Shoe Organizer offers a space-saving way to display your shoes, making it easy to grab what you need. For seasonal or less frequently worn shoes, our Hanging Shoe Organizer keeps them dust-free and in good shape, ready for when you need them.

An organized closet enhances your daily routine, making it more than just a tidy space. With these strategies, your closet will become a model of organization and style.
