Declutter your Wardrobe Easily
Spending so much time at home is perfect to declutter your home and of course... your wardrobe.
We want to thank www.makespace.com for the amazing information provided below.
Never worry about organizing your closet again. Our fool-proof, step-by-step guide shows you how to easily organize your closet for good. If you’re anything like us, you’ve probably decluttered and organize your bedroom closet many times over the years, and yet every few months it still ends up looking like a bull busted through your walk-in.
Maintaining an organized closet will always be an ongoing process (because updating your wardrobe is an ongoing process), but there are certain things you can do to ensure you never spend more than 20 minutes rearranging your clothes ever again.
1. Declutter your clothes by category.
A fast, easy way to declutter your clothes is to sift through them by type. Tossing every piece of clothing you own into a massive fabric mountain on your bed is overwhelming and inefficient.
Instead, separate your clothes into categories like pants, dresses, tops, outerwear, accessories, and undergarments. Then sort through every item in a single category before moving on to the next.
Why is this method better?
Because it’s way easier to compare similar clothes when they’re all grouped together in front of you, making it easier to get rid of the things you know you have too much of or don’t want.
2. Empty and clean your closet.
Once you’ve made separate “donation” and “keep” piles for your clothes, shoes, and accessories, give your closet a once-over and pull out anything else still lingering inside it.
When only the occasional lone safety pin remains, dive in and give your closet a proper deep-clean. Vacuum the carpet, wipe down the shelves, and scrub any scuff marks or dirt off the walls.
3. Roll t-shirts, pajamas, and workout clothes into storage boxes.
Things like cotton shirts, leggings, and polyester shorts tend to be thin and pliable, making them perfect candidates for the roll and tuck technique.
This technique is a major space-savers if you do it right. Rather than folding and stacking your softer, thinner clothes, simply fold them in half and roll them into neat little tubes.
Tuck your rolled clothing into shoe boxes (great for sliding into drawers), or use wire baskets or clear bins (perfect for shelves).
4. Store your most-used clothes at eye level.
Keep everything you wear on a regular basis in the middle of your closet at eye level so it’s easy to find and grab in your early morning pre-coffee haze.
Put lesser-used pieces directly above or below your most popular clothes, and relegate your least-worn items to the top shelf.
5. Maximize your vertical storage space.
Every closet has a secret storage weapon that, when used properly, changes the entire layout of your closet: vertical space.
This means walls, top shelves, doors, and even that dead space between your floor and the hems of your hanging dresses.
How do you take advantage of your vertical storage space?
Hang an over-the-door shoe rack over your, ahem, door, or hang it facing sideways on a tension rod.
