Organizing a closet can often be tiresome and end up in a mess. I know that sometimes when I try to rearrange my closet it ends up looking worse than when I started. While I didn’t figure out the perfect system by any means, I have several tips that have helped me.
Organize your closet by most worn. What I mean by this is that I will put the clothes I wear the most in the middle of my closet. This is so that whenever I open my closet, the first thing that I see are the clothes I typically wear. For me, personally, it works when I’m at home because my closet there is bigger. However, it can help when you’re at a rush at school and need to grab something off your rack right away!
Organize your closet by the type of clothes. I’ll put my jackets, cardigans, and flannels in one section, and my tank tops and tube tops will go in another so that I know what section I’m looking at when I need to pick out my clothes.
Hang up your jeans, shorts, and skirts. I don’t do this in my dorm, but at home I have a lot more hangers to do this with. That way, it empties out some drawers for undergarments, socks, and anything else. I normally put my skirts and shorts in a section together and my jeans in another back home. I have more room in my dresser for items that I don’t want in my closet anymore and haven’t gotten rid of yet.
Put the shoes you barely wear in the back. It helps me to put my most worn shoes in the front because I know I’ll be wearing them. I normally put shoes like sandals, heels, or any other shoes for special occasions in the back.
Of course, no matter how organized I try to be, sometimes my closet ends up messy. Hopefully, though, these tips helped you make your closet a little neater or cleaner!
