DECLUTTER YOUR CLOSET
I hear a lot of people complain that they don’t have enough closet space. Most of the time, their closets are either full of unused and outdated clothes (which means you need to get rid of all those junk!) or the space is not properly compartmentalized.
In compartmentalizing your closet, it should have sections to store these specific items: long hanging items (long dresses, trench), double-hanging items (tops on the upper half and bottoms on the lower half), folded articles, undergarments, ties, belts, shoes, bags, and other loose miscellaneous items. To find out how much space one should allocate for each section, make an inventory of all your belongings that will be stored in the closet.
Most people take for granted the value of a wide selection of hangers in organizing a closet, when in fact, they can make your storage space work more efficiently while making it look uniform and organized.
Make sure you have a hanger for fine dresses, suits, blouses, suits, skirts, pants, belt and ties. For a uniform appearance, have all your hangers in the same color or finish. Less expensive plastic hangers also come in different types.
Another tip: take a clue from your favourite clothing store and group clothes according to color then according to type, or vice versa. For example, put all pants and skirts together in one section, and group them further according to color. Like in many boutiques, this system makes your closet visually organized.
Although it’s already a compartment in itself, you can further divide your drawer into smaller sections. This is especially helpful in organizing your lingerie, socks, ties, jewelry, and makeup. You don’t need to buy drawer dividers off the rack. You can make your own with some stiff cardboard or stiff plastic sheets.
When dealing with your closet, always remember “to each its space so that everything is in place”. bow.
