Get Rid Of Your Old Clothes
It might not be easy, but tossing out or donating old clothes is key to making room in your closet.
Call The Pros—Or Find Your Own Storage Solutions
If you’re interested in hiring professional help to organise your closet, it may be more affordable than you think.
But if that’s not an option, use storage units that allow you to see your clothes and accessories.
How do you organise sweaters versus lingerie or shoes versus jeans? There are different solutions for each, so check out how you can start de-cluttering your closet.
If you have the space to hang everything, hang everything, you’ll wear more if you can see it.
Fold the very heavy jerseys so they don’t lose shape on the hanger. Also, cedar is not a myth. It really does prevent moths from getting into your cashmere or wool sweaters. Replace the cedar every six months. Colour code jerseys by weight, and use dividers or cubbies.
Organise by colour, size, and type. Make sure to rotate your underwear so you’re not wearing the same few all of the time.
There are a number of ways to organise your jeans —by cut, brand, colour, style, size, or none of the above. Most people tend to go by colour.
Start with strapless and go to long-sleeve. Never leave your dresses, or any other clothes, in the dry cleaning or plastic garment bags. The chemicals from dry cleaning attack the fibres of your clothing and cause damage.
