8 Easy Ways To Organize Your Wardrobe

With Spring steadily approaching and warmer months coming up, it's the perfect time to re-organize your wardrobe and clear out everything you didn’t wear last season! If the idea of cleaning out your wardrobe seems daunting, don't worry; I've got some pretty amazing tips (with help from Lauren Conrad Style book). With these quick and easy tips, you’ll transform your wardrobe into tip-top shape in no time! 

1.Time To Purge: If your space is limited, store your Summer-only items on the top shelf in your closet. That way, they aren't taking up prime real estate on your clothing rods and in your dresser drawers. This is also the time to get rid of any Autumn pieces that you no longer wear, don’t fit anymore, or are out of season.

2.Hanger Help: To maximize the space in your closet, switch out your current hangers to space-saving, felt hangers; it's important that all of your hangers are uniform.

3.Stylized Sections: Once you've made the switch, it's time to organize your clothing by type and color. You can even take this a step further and categorize them by style within each color section, for example, tank tops, short sleeves, and long sleeves!

4.Favour A Fold: There’s no need to waste hanging space on bulkier items like sweaters, sweat shirts, and jeans. Create your own partitions using shelf risers to maximize the vertical space, and ensure that your folded items don’t get messy or topple over.

5.Corral Your Coats:  If space permits, it's best to keep your heavy Fall coats in a separate closet, like a utility closet in your entryway. This will keep them out of the way, and make them easily accessible when you’re leaving the house!

6.Accessorize Your Accessories:  Keep your accessories tidy by using 3M hooks to display belts, bags, scarves, and necklaces. The great thing about these is that they can hold up to five pounds, come in a variety of styles and colors, and they’re easy to remove if you decide to rearrange or move.

7.Show Off Your Shoes:  Put your shoes in clear drawers, and keep them organized by labeling them, or taping a picture of the shoes to the front of the box. Keep your favourite shoes the most visible and toward the front so they’re easily accessible.

8.Lighten Up: It's important to have good lighting in your closet so you can see everything inside. If your closet has poor lighting, use battery-powered lights that are inexpensive and easy to apply!

Hope this helps! Have fun cleaning your closet, if it helps, listen to some music and sing along!
