I often dream of having a beautiful walk-in closet.
You probably think after spending 22 years in retail, I have organized closets. Well, you’d be wrong! When you spend 9+ hours a day folding, hanging, and straightening, it’s the last thing you want to do at home. I keep them somewhat orderly, until lately. Oh my goodness, I finally took a good hard look at them and knew I needed to do some major re-organization. I’m going to walk you through a great way to organize your closet so it’s efficient for you. I have to say, I was amazed at some of the things I found!
The first thing I do is take everything out. You’d be amazed at what works it’s way in. Then I sort everything into piles-keep, donate, repair, sell, and throw out.
I found this little drawered container at Target. It’s perfect for my bracelets.
Finished product. The things I need on a daily basis are on the bottom shelf. All the hanging is arranged by style, sleeve length, and color. I used plastic bins for storage because I already had them. Target has some really nice storage options.
My donations!! You really need to take emotion out of the equation. Anything you haven’t worn in a year or aren’t willing to repair or tailor should go. We all have those outfits that hold memories. I have a few I store, but otherwise it all goes to someone who needs it more than I do.
Remember-keep emotion out of it and organize in a way that makes sense to you. I know to keep things I wear often down low or else it gets too messy. Happy organizing!!
