Getting organized is a challenge. But we all know that it is worth it. Having an organized space will make you feel more productive, even if that space is just your closet. Use these tips for ideas on how to keep your wardrobe organized.
Organization Tip #1: Sort Clothing by Category
Our brain naturally groups similar items together. So, it makes sense to do the same with your clothing. Arranging your clothes by category can make your closet look more organized while making it easier for you to find what you need. It’s a win-win scenario!
Organizing your clothing by fabric is always a good idea; you don’t want your business attire covered in fuzzy lint from your favorite winter sweater.
You can also make dividers to separate your clothing categories like they do in department stores. Cut a circle into a piece of cardstock paper, write the clothing type on the top with a sharpie, and slip over your closet rod. This helps with putting clothes away and quickly finding what you want to wear.
To take it a step further, sort your clothes by color within each section. Sorting from dark to light not only helps with organization and aesthetics but also limits the risk of dye transfer between garments.
Organization Tip #2: Store Away Seasonal Clothing
As much as we love our bulky winter sweaters, there is no reason for them to take up so much space in our closets during the middle of summer. Sweaters stored away tend to get musty and dusty by the time winter comes back around. Pick a canvas storage bag to allow for breathability while still keeping out dirt and dust. For wool-based items, it is a good idea to add a couple of mothballs for an extra layer of security.
