When it comes to cleaning out your closet, it is difficult to know where to start. Sometimes, clutter is overwhelming. Other times, you might find yourself too attached to clothing you might wear again “one day.” As professional closet designers and organizers, we understand this struggle. Believe us: we have seen it all! That is why our team at Austin Closet Solutions has put together some tips to get you started and keep your organization on track.
The first step toward de-cluttering your closet is deciding what to keep and what to get rid of. To make it easier on yourself we suggest labeling five boxes or plastic bags with the following categories:
- Altering or mending
These categories will be a huge time saver while organizing your closet. Once you have gone through your clothing and decided what or what not to keep, the first – and most difficult – step is done. Now, you can focus on deciding what goes where in your closet.
Once your closet is organized, it is important that it stays that way. This can be difficult, but with the right mindset and the following three steps, it is no longer a chore. The first step is to finish your laundry. Fold clothes as soon as they are done to keep them from cluttering your floor. This also helps avoid wrinkles! The second step is to maximize your storage with proper closet organization. The final step is to monitor your habits. Remove clothes from your wardrobe that you don’t wear. You can give them new life by donating them.
