Organizing the Closet

The items inside your closet might be hidden from view but that does not mean you do not have to organize this space inside your bedroom.

Here are tips on how you can organize your closet.

How big is your closet? If it is small, then you might want to get rid of the items that you do not use anymore, so you can make room for new ones or to keep it as clutter-free as possible.

Now, the key to a better organized closet is the use of items that free up space yet also provide spots for organizing. These you can find in home improvement sections in the mall.

For example, if you share a closet with someone else, then you can divide the closet at the middle, so each person will have his/her own space to prevent mix ups.

Organizer Options

Use baskets or drawers to sort smaller items, such as socks and underwear. Ties, scarves, and belts can be hung at the door of closet. You can also find plenty of organizer options, such as bag racks and organizers you can hang at the door or on the hanger bar.

If your drawers are deep or large, you can use small boxes to separate items from each other. You can even create your own using cereal boxes, if needed.

As for sorting the clothes and other items inside the closet, a good rule of thumb is to arrange them depending on how you use them. For example, you can allocate several shelves for casual clothes while others are for rugged use. Formal wear, gowns, dresses, and corporate attires are best hung on hangers.

For items you do not use often, such as special gowns or seasonal clothes, store them inside labeled garment boxes or containers before placing in the back or lowest portions of the closet.
