Easy Ways To Organize Your Closet

By Brian Talley

Since many apartment communities lack storage space, your closet may be one of the most important areas in your apartment – that’s why it’s essential you keep it organized. Many people fall into the trap of shoving everything they own into their closet – no one sees it anyway, right?

To maximize your closet space, set aside two to three hours in the upcoming weeks to clean up the dirty area. You will never believe how much stuff you can place in there! It’s recommended that you will do this in one sitting so that you can have more time doing the stuff that matters.

Clean it Out
First and foremost, clean out your closet. Sweep or vacuum the floor, wipe off the shelves and hanging bars with a cleaner, and clean out all of the spider webs. The last thing you want is for your clothing to go back into a dirty space.

Separate Your Clothing
Take three trash bags and put label on each one: “Trash,” “Donate,” and “Keep,” Then, get all your stuff from the closet whether hanged, folded, or on the floor. Now you can start sorting.

Trash – Old clothes that are torn, stained, or beyond repair should be put in this pile. One way to recycle them, if you choose to not to throw them away, is to cut them in squares and use them for dusting, cleaning, or even packing materials.

Donate – You will be putting items here that are good condition, usable and those items you have outgrown. Offer this pile to your relatives or friends, you can also try your local second hand store.

Keep – This is the pile of clothing and accessories that you really want to keep around. Put clothing in this pile if you wear it often or if it’s in really good condition and can be worn for a couple more years.

Get Organized!
Now that you know which items you want to keep around, it’s time to get organized. First, throw away the “Trash” pile and put the “Donate” pile by the door so you won’t forget to get rid of it.

Then, begin putting the “Keep” items back into your closet. There are many ways to organize the clothing so it’s easy for you to find. Consider doing it by type, color, or category. And, if there are clothes that are out of season, like winter coats and mittens during the summertime, consider putting those into a Tupperware and storing it on a shelf where it won’t bother you until you need it.
