9 Best Tips to Organize Your Closet

Categorize your clothing and accessories by type. For example sweaters, t-shirts, dresses, jeans, etc. Taking inventory by category will help you decide how much space you need for each. This will make putting things back in the closet easier. Once your clothes are categorized, do another round of purging. You may find that you have ten black skirts and can afford to donate a few!

9 Tips to Organize Your Closet


Step one to organizing your closet is to pull everything out of the closet. Get rid of items that are stained, torn, dated, do not fit, or you no longer use or wear. Move your out of season clothing and shoes to an alternate closet or storage, to make room for in-season clothing.

Donate or sell your gently used items. We work with the amazing Nell Langford from The Real Real to help you get your gently used designer items re-sold. She will come to your house to pick up your items and will handle everything. All you have to do is wait for your check!

Now that everything is out of the closet, you'll need to clean it. Wipe down all of the shelves with Clorox wipes. Wipe down the clothing rod, they get really dusty! Clean the baseboards, and finally, vacuum.
