Organizing Your Closet
No matter how many shoes, accessories, or pieces of clothing you may have, an organized closet is the desire of every apartment tenant. That’s because an organized closet will not only make your apartment look more clean, but it may make you feel better as well.
Having an organized closet isn’t as easy at it sounds. Even if you are diligent in cleaning your apartment out, chances are that it’s only a matter of time before things get out of control again. Luckily, we’re going to try and help prevent that from happening moving forward.
To do that, here are five tips for organizing your closet.
- Find Time
If you are someone that loves cleaning, you can come to our apartment when you finish your own. The truth is that there is about a million other things that most people would prefer to do other than clean and organize their closet. However, it’s a task that needs to be done. Therefore, make sure that you set a specific time that you have planned to clean your closet.
If you have this time set in your schedule, you’ll know you can’t avoid it. However, if it’s something that you continually just plan to do, “when you get around to it,” that time may never come.
- Make Space For Your Items
Before you begin, think about where you’ll put everything that you are pulling out of your closet. You may want to make room on your bed or on the floor. Or you can decide to put things into different piles, which will help you decide what you are keeping or getting rid of. Either way, having a specific place where you’ll put your items will help you thoroughly clean out your closet versus just thumbing through it while trying to make the most of its organization.
- Purge And Throw Away
Letting go is hard. But if you haven’t put on that dress since high school, or if those lucky shoes are making the rest of your closet smell, then it’s time to say goodbye. You don’t have a lot of room in your closet as it is. That is why now is the perfect time to get rid of things that you don’t need or use anymore.
- Organize And Track
Now that you have everything out of your closet, it’s the perfect time to carefully plan and organize the items that you put back in. Put all of your shirts in one area, scarves in another, and accessories in their own. By organizing and tracking your items, you’ll know exactly where everything is – which will eliminate the amount of times you find yourself frantically searching for your favorite pair of earrings.
- Maintain For Optimal Results
Finally, do yourself a favor and maintain the cleanliness of your closet moving forward. If you follow steps 1-4, then you’ll have a closet you are proud of, which will hopefully be one that you enjoy keeping clean. But if that’s not enough incentive, just keep in mind how much time and space you’ll save by keeping your closet clean.
