New Year Resolution: Organize The Closet (And Keep It That Way)

Keeping an organized closet throughout the year is a challenge for most of us. However, it is a possible feat. To help you keep an organized closet this year, here are some helpful tips!

Clean It Out Yearly
If you haven’t worn the outfit in over a year, it’s probably time to get rid of it. Make it a habit once a year to take the time to go through all your clothing. For the clothes that do not fit or you do not wear anymore, donate them! It will free up closet space for the clothes you do wear!

Take Inventory
Think about what you already own before you go shopping. Plan out outfits in advance and figure out what pieces might be missing from your wardrobe. This will probably help you save money on those shopping trips as well!

Always Put Clothes Back On Hangers
Get in the habit of putting your closes back where they came from. This will take a little bit of determination, but once it’s a habit it’ll make a big difference.

Try Something New
If an old way of storing your jeans always ends with your jeans in a heap on the floor, it’s time to try a new plan. Try to store them in a different way or a different spot, figure out what works for your routine and stick with it!

Add More Storage
One reason your closet becomes a mess might be because it is overflowing. If cleaning out your closet didn’t free up enough space, try getting creative with your storage! Try adding shelves and racks to keep your things together.

Shoe Storage
Cubbies, over the door organizers, and shelves are great for getting shoes off the ground and out of the way. You want them to be in a location where they are visible but also not obstructing the rest of the closet space.
