If you’re feeling inspired to do a little spring cleaning, the perfect
place to start is with your wardrobe. Getting your closet organized will
have you feeling light and excited to get dressed, so stop putting it
off and get it done!
If you’re going to jump into this task, you
will need to have at least two hours dedicated to tackling it like a
pro. It can be a long process, so if you’re going to do it sans a
professional – invite some girlfriends over to help make the process
Don’t be afraid to toss
of thumb, if you haven’t worn it in two years is has got to go! You’re
doing more harm than good keeping old, outdated and ill-fitting clothing
in your wardrobe. ‘Tis better to have an unfilled closet with several
great essentials than a crammed closet filled with items you hang onto
“just in case.” Everyone gets some level of anxiety tossing items you’ve
spent money on and may have been attached to in the past, but if you’re
not wearing it – it’s just taking up valuable closet space.
want to create a closet filled with items that make you feel happy,
beautiful, comfortable and confident. If a garment is too cumbersome,
just doesn’t appeal to you anymore or makes you feel frumpy then quit
holding onto it. Going into your closet should be a positive experience
and to achieve that it should be filled with items you react positively
That also means politely getting rid of all those size 6
dresses that just don’t fit anymore and embracing your size 10 figure.
If an item doesn’t fit, don’t keep it around with the inspiration excuse
– if you’re serious about losing weight and you want to keep
inspiration pieces you used to wear and love, limit it to two or three
pieces maximum. Hang them on your closet door where you can see them
often instead of jammed in the back of all your regularly worn clothing.
Organize like a Retail Expert
Shopping a well
merchandised store is a blast because everything is organized based on
trend, color and type. Unless you’re hiring a professional to manage
your wardrobe that kind of organization is too lofty to manage alone.
However, organizing your closet by garment type is easy, simple to
maintain and makes pulling together a look quick and effortless.
all your pants together and create simple subgroups. All the denim
together, all the office trousers together and follow suit with the rest
of your garments. Once you have grouped them based on type, you can
also filter so that all the like colors of a particular group are
together to make viewing all your pieces a cinch. If you can’t see it,
you will most definitely forget to wear it, so after you’ve tossed all
the riff raff, making sure you can easily see all of your pieces means
you will wear them more often.
Don’t develop a complicated method
of organization. Something effective, that you will maintain is
important. How many times have you organized your items only to look at
them two weeks later and wonder how things got such a mess again.
Limiting your organizing to type and color is sufficient.
No Wire Hangers
I was a child I refused to hang any of my clothing on rusty wire
hangers. It’s a small investment, clothing is best maintained when hung
on wooden hangers. Wooden hangers help your clothing retain their shape
while they are hanging in your closet.
If you’re serious about
building a great wardrobe, getting you closet organized is the very
first step. It’s a good idea to clear out your closet, eliminate what
you don’t need and organize the great pieces you want to hold onto.
more, you can donate those items you no longer wear to charity or even
organize a garage sale to make a couple extra bucks.
