Clothes; we can’t help but love them and hate them when they start covering up all our free space. Whether you are a girl or a guy, you likely a whole slew of clothing ranging from t-shirts, jeans, overalls, and so much more.
Naturally, your closet can only fit so much in so the bulk of these clothes are likely to end up on the room of your floor, stuffed in the back or bottom of your closet, and generally covering every single surface in your room.
Luckily, if you are suffering from a case of the clothing plague, worry no more. We have put together a list of ten different ways in which you can organize your clothes wherever you are residing!
1. Come Up With a Status Report
This may sound serious from the get-go, but before you begin the organizing process, it is necessary that you take a once over of your clothes. This step is to help you analyze the amount and the different kinds of clothes that you have.
There may be some things that you can get rid of, and that will help late on, however, assessing the damage in the first place is important.
2. Try to De-Clutter
Now, as aforementioned, there are likely to be some pieces that you can get rid of. Perhaps you haven’t worn it in quite a while or have forgotten that you had it in the first place.
A good rule of thumb is to just ask yourself if you are going to use a particular item again. If the answer’s no, then you can go ahead and throw it out.
3. Organizing By Color/Type
Another smart way to organize your clothes is to categorize them by type and color. For instance, all your t-shirts can be in one compartment while all your jeans/shorts can be in another.
The same goes for similarly colored items; it is good to exercise a color-themed regime which will make it easier for you to find what you are looking for.
4. Exercise Uniformity
Now once you know which clothes you have and which ones you want to get rid of, you can go ahead and start getting some hangers for your clothes.
When it comes to hangers, the best approach is to get the same kind of hangers to give your closet a uniform look.
5. Mark out Different Sections
You are likely to own a fair amount of different clothing. Keeping them all in a single compartment can prove difficult.
Therefore, it is better to have different compartments for various pieces of clothing i.e., socks, undergarments, shirts, and pants, etc.
6. Get another Smaller Closet
Now another closet doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to have another closet installed. Instead, you can go for Portable Closets that you can hang anywhere in your room.
These can be hung up on walls, or on the back of your door for some added instant storage.
7. Focus on Folded Clothing
Dealing with clothes that can be hung is significantly easier because you can hang them up and get them out of the way. Folded or foldable clothes are much peskier.
These include socks and undergarments etc. For these, you can set aside some room in your dresser or drawer or have a separate basket where you can keep these stored.
8. Arrange for Off-Season Storage Bags
Storing off-season clothes is a whole other story. Having them stay in your closet is out of the question since space is already fairly limited.
Therefore you can arrange for them to be stored in other bags such as comforter bags that you can get from any local drugstore. They can hold your extra clothes while they are not in use.
9. Arrange Your Knick Knacks
Now these ‘knick-knacks’ that we are talking about may include various odds and ends ranging from jewelry, belts, hats, and scarves, etc.
It is best to get these out of the way and stored safely. For starters, you can tie all your scarves on a hanger to stow them away in your closet.
10. Store Clothing That Cannot Be Hanged
As above-mentioned, clothing that cannot be hanged includes socks, belts, ties, etc. You can use leftover ornament boxes, and shoeboxes to compartmentalize these smaller items.
They can fit easily into your side drawers where they will stay organized for use on any occasion.
Now that you know what to do, you can set off on organizing your clothes and closet. In just a few short steps, you will be able to see the results in no time.
You can thank us later once your room is all set and good to go, happy organizing!
