Maintaining an organized closet is an ongoing process because updating your wardrobe is an ongoing process. But there are bigger steps you can take to ensure you never spend too long rearranging your clothes each time. Following these steps will help you organize your closet for good.
Tossing every piece of clothing you own onto your bed is overwhelming. Instead, sort through every item in a single category before moving on to the next. It’s easier to compare similar clothes, making it easier to get rid of the things. The same goes for storing items. Keep like with like. Now that you have groups of items, store those groups in the order you get ready. In the top drawer, store the items you put on first when getting dressed in the morning like underwear, then pants in the next drawer, and tops in the drawer below that.
Despite your best efforts, you may still end up with massive heaps of unloved clothes at the end of the year. This can be prevented with a simple rule called the “one in, one out” policy. For every new item you bring into your closet, you get rid of another. It can feel ruthless, but it ensures your collection never gets too large and is always loved.
