First Suggestion: Put Everything on Your Floor

The lone way of organizing your closet will involve completely clearing it out. That means tossing everything onto the bed or floor. This will give you an idea of what you have in your closet (and the quantities of each item). After taking inventory, you can sort contents into designated piles, which can be quite a challenge. Odds are pretty good that you will want to keep things that you should be letting go of. Establish a non-negotiable rule along the lines of, “if I haven’t put it on within the last year, then it needs to go.” With this kind of mentality, detachment from your possessions will be simplified.

We suggest beginning with a trio of individual piles: trash, keep, and donate/sell. Anything that is stained, contains holes, or is coming undone can be tossed. Alternatively, if the fabric is strong enough, you can use some of them as rags for cleaning.


If you have unwanted items in decent condition, consider selling those things on websites like Ebay. By cleaning your closet out, you might make some money from getting things you don’t need any more (or forgot that you had)! If you lack the time necessary to resell your items or donate them, look for a shelter or organization in your neighborhood you can drop them off at.

Once you have completed this task, you will have to reduce the quantity of things inside your closet significantly. The only things that remain should be items you love. Maintaining your closet and keeping it organized will be a lot easier, moving forward.

Second Suggestion: Closet Organizer Installation

Maybe your closet isn’t overflowing with attire. Maybe the reason it needs a makeover is because it doesn’t have a practical design. A dresser and closet rod are very helpful accessories, but those things alone can’t keep everything organized.

The closet should contain fundamentals like shoe shelves, drawers, shelving, and hanging areas (which should have varying heights). Extra accessories – such as a hamper – can be built right into the design as well to keep things even more organized.

Third Suggestion: Create an Organizational System That’s Foolproof and Practical

Third Suggestion: Create an Organizational System That’s Foolproof and Practical

Consider keeping things organized based on seasons, occasions, or even colors. When doing so, every aspect of the closet must be a destination for a specific kind of item. You’ll optimize the chances of keeping things in order over the long run when you understand how to go about utilizing space in the closet.

When you are trying to come up with an organizational approach, stick with what is most intuitive for you. How do you navigate the closet currently? Are you constantly changing to accommodate your lifestyle? Do you change your attire based on occasion, perhaps putting on gym clothes after taking off a suit as part of your routine? In such cases, keeping things organized based on occasion will prove beneficial for you.

If you are more comfortable wearing a T-shirt and jeans, and/or you like to dress up based on style or color, then color-coding your closet could lessen the time it takes for you to get ready for work each morning.

There is only one incorrect way of organizing your closet, and that involves not doing any organizing, period. It hardly matters what approach is popular or trendy. Choose a strategy that is effective for you. By doing so, you’ll be more inclined to stick with it.
