Canva - Closet Cleaning

The closet is always a huge source of frustration for both men and women. In relationships, men may get the short stick and have less room, but if you only have one closet then the woman may still not have enough room.

The closet is where you may have to get creative or really think out your organizing strategy.

A good rule of thumb is to not buy any types of organizers or storage containers before decluttering.

Closet organization tips and tricks

  • Need good lighting.
  • Use hooks for hoodies/robes.
  • Need to access the closet easily.
  • Use magazine holder for flat shoes like flip flops and sandals.

There’s never a better time to get started decluttering and organizing your home than the summertime. Use some of these tips or read more of our clean up and organizing blogs to help you get going.

Know Where You’ll Donate Clothes 

It’s easier to declutter your closet if you know where you’ll be donating your clothing ahead of time. This way, once you are done decluttering and purging your wardrobe, you can quickly whisk the items off to a deserving recipient making the process much easier.

Another option is consigning your gently used or pricey clothing.

Use a Donation Box for Easy Decluttering

Make decluttering your wardrobe easier by having a donation bin, bag, or basket right in your closet. This allows you to declutter your closet and toss items you no longer want whenever you happen upon them.

The more often you declutter, the less time it will take and the easier it will be. Committing to a weekly clutter sweep means spending 10 to 15 minutes once or twice a week in your closet placing items in your donation box, re-arranging clothing that has fallen out of place, and re-hanging and folding clothes that may be strewn about your bedroom and bathroom. All of this will take much less time than you think if you tackle it regularly.
