If you are sick of looking at the chaos in your wardrobe or wardrobes, and you are tired of going through all the piles just to find that one shirt, you should probably think about organizing your clothes. Here is a quick guide on how to do that with the least effort.
Empty your wardrobes. Yes, start with that. If you are going to look for a place for everything, you need to know what you actually have. The amounts of clothes you can take out of your wardrobe may surprise you. This way you will also see what kind of space you have – it is very possible that the only reason the wardrobe held everything is because you shoved and pushed everything in.
Start making piles. This is where the organization begins. Separate your clothes in two piles – used and never used. Take the latter pile and find it a different storage altogether – a closet, or cellar, or why not even give them away? Surely, there are some clothes that don’t fit you, or have gone out of fashion, or had been just a gift which you never liked and don’t plan on using anyway. Fix your attention to the former pile. This needs some more effort. You should probably make four more piles, dividing the clothes into seasonal uses. If it’s summer now, you probably don’t need the winter clothes in the front. Fold the clothing for the farthest away season and place them at the back of the wardrobe. Separate the clothes in the other piles into upper-body wear, lower-body wear and underwear. It’s time to make use of your wardrobe’s sections. Find a section for every clothes type and place them there. If your wardrobe is section-rich, you can even further sort your piles by color.
Deal with coats and shirts. These types of clothes go on hangers in the more spacious parts of your wardrobe. Coats and jackets for the season shouldn’t take up space there, though. Take them to your coat stand or closet for more convenient access when going out.
Small spaces for small items. Ideally, socks, underwear and accessories should have no place in your wardrobe. Get them their own cabinet or dresser drawers. With proper folding you should have no trouble going through them and finding exactly what you need in no time at all.
A well-organized closet and dresser will make you feel like you have a new wardrobe and will save you (and your family members) lots of time getting dressed each morning. As a reward for a job well done, go shopping for wardrobe staples if you don’t have them, like black dress pants, a nice pair of jeans or a crisp white blouse. Or go for a fancy dress and some great shoes.
To maintain the order in your closet, put everything back in its place on a weekly basis. And clean out the closet seasonally.
