10 Easy Ways To Organize Your Fashion Clothes and Accessories
But your closet and bedroom doesn’t have to be this way: there are tons of creative ways to organize and declutter your room without having to cut down on the shopping. Check out these ten inspired ways to make the most of your space.
- Out with the Old
Before you attempt to organize your closet, do yourself a giant favor by going through every item. Donate clothes you no longer use and gather a pile that needs to be brought to the tailor. Even just the simple act of going through your closet with a fine-tooth comb will remind you of everything that’s in your wardrobe and help you come up with fresh new outfit combos. At the very least, you might find you get rid of a lot of things you no longer need, which will make organizing much simpler.
Shoes are super pesky to store, because they come in so many shapes and sizes. Tackle this problem with a hanging shoe organizer; you can easily store flats and heels into different compartments and clear the shoes off your floor once and for all. The shoe organizer can be hung over the back of your closet door to conserve precious closet space. For taller boots, try using pant hangers to hang boots up and help preserve their shape.
We can never have too many purses, until it comes time to find the one we want. Grab some inexpensive shower curtain rings to hook your purses onto in your closet, and you’ll never have trouble finding a purse again.
- Jewellery Box
It can drive you crazy trying to find earring backs and rings amongst the pile of tangled necklaces on your dresser. Save your sanity by getting yourself a gorgeous jewellery box to store all your precious pieces in perfectly proportioned compartments. Next time you’re getting dressed, you’ll have no trouble accessorizing with everything laid out in front of you.
- Shelf Dividers
Shelves can quickly become a nightmarish game of Tetris when you’re trying to find a certain sweater or put away folded laundry. Up your organizational game by installing easy DIY shelf dividers on wider shelves to help you keep piles separate and sturdy.
Never rifle through your sock drawer for a tangled pair of tights again with this simple trick: knot several pairs of hosiery onto hangers to keep them visible and tangle-free.
- Canvas Shelves
A lot of delicate clothing can’t be hung, or you risk ruining the shape and material. But shelf/drawer space can be limited, especially in smaller rooms. Get yourself some much-needed shelf real estate with a hanging canvas shelving system; you’ll have plenty of room for bulkier items like jeans and heavy wool sweaters.
- Double Hangers
If your closet isn’t big enough for all your clothes (and let’s face it, whose is?!), instantly double your closet size by investing in these brilliant double hangers that you can attach together to increase potential hanger space on the rods.
- Seasonal Hangers
A fun DIY project is to paint bundles of hangers into four colors—one for each season. Sort your clothes by season, and keep the current season of clothes up front and center for quick viewing. Another trick is to turn all your hanger hooks backward at the start of each season. Every time you wear an item, turn the hook forwards. At the end of the season, any items with hooks still facing backwards should be tossed or donated—clearly, you’re not making use of them!
- Vacuum Seal
If the above is not an option due to a tiny closet, store out-of-season clothing in inexpensive vacuum sealed containers. You’ll protect the clothing and store a huge amount of stuff in a small amount of space. Yay technology!
