Having a clear set idea of where something will live in your space helps for two reasons: First, you are able to easily find things, and secondly, when you can't, you know a clean-out may be due.
We routinely schedule our hair appointments, workouts, and taxes, so why should an edit of your wardrobe be any different? Getting in the habit of having regular closet purges, whether that means quarterly or annually, ensures that you won’t lose precious space to articles that never get worn.
Often many seemingly doomed closets can be tamed with just the right supplies. Take inventory of what you have, and then get the necessary organization tools needed to make your closet a dream. Whether it’s shelving, hooks, or hangers, we promise you’ll thank us for the investment later.
Small space dwellers, listen up! Not having the adequate space for your wardrobe does not mean that all hope is lost. Instead, embrace a makeshift closet, which in fact can be a lot chicer than the name suggests. Get creative with unconventional closet ideas to solve your storage nightmare.
Hurray! You’ve organized, purged, and redesigned your way to your dream closet. To make sure it stays just as beautiful and user-friendly, find the right closet-cleaning method for you. Whether that’s by utilizing the ribbon method or by restricting your wardrobe to a certain number of hangers, the goal is to give yourself a clear idea of what you’re actually wearing throughout the year.
