Organization Tips for People With too Many Clothes

The more clothes you have, the harder it is to organize them, especially if you are the type to make a mess when looking for what to wear. Fortunately, there are certain things you can do to organize and properly manage your clothes.

In this article, we will teach about those tips.

Declutter your clothes

Keeping clothing items you don’t wear takes up space you don’t have. As a result, you need to declutter your closet before you embark on the journey to organize it.

If you have a hard time identifying clothes you need to dispose of, try them on and ask yourself the following questions: Have I worn it in the past year? Does it still fit? Would I buy it if I saw it in a store today? Would I wear it again? Is it damaged? Does it still look good on me?

If your answer to a particular piece of clothing is yes, then we recommend that you get rid of it. Also, if you have the slightest doubt about whether you will still use a piece of clothing, dispose of it as well.

Clean your closet

After decluttering, the only clothes left in your closet should be the ones you love and wear. When you get to this stage, empty your closet and clean it. Apart from its therapeutic effect, it will give you an accurate image of the space in your closet and how you to manage it.

Design your unique closet

If you can afford it, buy or design a custom closet for yourself. If you can’t, be creative with how you organize your clothes.

For instance, place the clothes you wear frequently in the outer area of your closet and the ones you wear less frequently in the inner part. Also, place the clothes you frequently wear at eye level to avoid bending or climbing to reach them.

Sort your clothes into different categories

Sorting your clothes into different categories will make it easy for you to locate them.

When doing this, ensure to separate each cloth type into different sections. For instance, dedicate a separate section for each of your shirts, pants, dresses, sweaters, etc.

 This will enable you to easily locate your clothing items. It will also make it easy for you to reorganize your clothes when they get messy.

Use coordinative hangers

Coordinative hangers help to prevent clutter in the hanger section of your closet. They also help to create an organized closet, thereby enabling you to hang more clothes. So, we highly recommend you get a set of coordinative hangers for your wardrobe.

Dedicate a drawer for your undergarments

Due to their small sizes, undergarments are some of the last clothing items you should organize. If you have ample closet space, dedicate an entire drawer to your undergarments. Otherwise, use a drawer divider to separate them from your other clothes.

Having an organized closet can save you several minutes or hours daily. This is because an organized closet will help you to locate every one of your clothes without having to search for them. For this reason, and the many benefits of this habit, we recommend you take some time out to organize your clothes soon.
