5 Ways to Keep Your Closet Organized

This weekend, I organized my closets and I am so happy with the results! Here are a few simple tips to help you with your own closet project. Investing a few hours in organizing your closet NOW will save  you precious minute everyday busy day of your fall!

Follow these tips for a perfectly organized closet!

  1. If you store your shoes in shoe boxes (plastic or cardboard), snip off a piece of a dryer sheet and include it in the box before storing.  I put the snips at the ends of the boxes because I don’t know how the leather or canvas of my shoes will respond to the chemicals on the dryer sheet. This is an easy, inexpensive way to absorb the moisture/odor that may linger in your shoes.
  2. Use your closet organizing project to take an inventory of your household supplies.  Then, you can buy all of the items you need at the same time. It is easier to combine these purchases in one trip instead of trying to remember what you need and picking up replacement items randomly.
  3. As I always say, use medium-sized clear or translucent clothing storage containers so you can see what is inside the box from outside of the box.  I always buy clear so they all match.
  4. Most people know the standard rule of closet organizing: If you have not worn it in a year, either toss or donate.  This purging rule also applies to gym clothes, costume jewelry, lotions, lingerie, lotions, cosmetics, accessories, etc.
  5. Ladies, if you are disposing of your business clothing, consider donating to an organization that provides clothing to women who are trying to enter the work place.

Donate women’s business attire to these local organizations:
