Everyone’s closet and the space you have to work with is a little bit different. Walk-in or no walk-in — or separate room entirely — the closet organization tips that I will be sharing with you today will work for you regardless of the space that you have to work with.
Starting your day is a lot less stressful when you can walk into a closet and clearly see all of your options – as if your clothes are sitting there just waiting for you. The tips I’ll be sharing with you today are the ones that I use to
Keep your closet organized with these three tips:
- Color coordinate
- Stuff your stuff (boots & purses)
- Keep jewelry at bay
Tip #1: Color coordinate
The best way to find something quickly in your closet is to search for the color. If you have everything grouped together by color, you’ll know right where to look as opposed to having to search through your entire closet for one little item.
I color coordinate my closet and it is sorted into chunks of black, gray, white and then blues, reds, purples, yellows, oranges and beige. This helps me know right where to look when I need to find an item. And I know if it is not there, then it is likely in the hamper waiting to be washed and I don’t have to search my entire closet for it. Once laundry is done, I hang everything clean back up in the color block that it belongs to.
Color coordinating your closet is easier than you think and is initially a one time project that you can take the time to invest in up front and then maintain over time by keeping up on top of it each time you put clean clothes back into your closet.
Tip #2: Stuff your stuff (boots & purses)
The word “stuff” is one of my least favorite words, but I am going to use it here anyways. Stuff refers to boots and purses and keeping these stuffed will help how your closet looks when everything is displayed. It also gives that “new” feeling, like everything in your closet is straight out of the store, as well as keep your purses and boots in great condition over time.
To stuff your purses, use tissue paper or even bags that you have laying around the house. Once stuffed, line them up on the shelf and enjoy how nicely they stay there!
To stuff your boots, use old magazines. Roll one up and put down inside the leg of the boot. This will keep your boots standing upright and also prevent creases and wear on the exterior fabric that would otherwise cause your boots to wear out faster.
Tip #3: Keep jewelry at bay
Who wants to dig through a tangled up mess of necklaces, bracelets and earrings each morning when you are in a rush to get ready for work? One of the best decisions I made to help organize my closet was to invest in a jewelry armoire. My favorite is the stand-up with a full-length mirror on the front. Once you open it up, there is a place for everything and everything is in its place. No more digging through a dresser top jewelry box searching for just the right thing. Necklaces, bracelets, rings and earrings are right there where you can see them and grab them quickly and go.
Try one or all three of these tips to keep your closet organized and you’ll look better, feel better and encounter more relaxing and less stressful mornings each day as you are getting ready.
