Donate Clothes That You Are Not Wearing
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve said to myself that I’m keeping a clothing item that I think I might fit into when I lose those extra 10. Throw it out! You will feel less stress leaving your mind free of thinking about something over and over again about things that don’t matter. Go buy something that fits you right NOW!
You will feel much better if you donate items in your closet that don’t fit you now letting someone else enjoy what’s sitting around taking up space and making your closet look cluttered. While you're organizing there will be cleaning that going along side of this task. Get organized with the cleaning supplies, boxes, tape, labels etc. using your Kootoo Kit.
Remove Clutter From Your Closet
Items you don’t use from day to day, get unused items out of your closet.
Throw out, donate or move them to a place in your home they will be used. Only keep items in your closet that are like items like clothing etc. Having unwanted or unused items will keep your closet depressing and the clutter thoughts clutter items bring to you on a daily basis is not worth keeping clutter around.
Utilize Your Closet Floor Space
Utilizing your floor space in a closet can add more space to a small closet area. If you have a large walk-in closet or a smaller closet, you can utilize the floor space and can give your closet an aesthetic design. This can give your closet the much-needed space for your daily items. Be careful you are not adding items you don’t need and you’re not using. Don’t let this space become a pile on space.
Add Lighting To Your Closet
Adding lights to your closet can make it feel like a much larger space. Lights can also help you see your daily items and you won’t feel like your closet is a catch-all space. Keeping items organized and in a lighted area can help your mental health. Walking in or opening a lighted area every day can bring you joy and keeping this much-needed space organized can save you time because you are not wasting precious time looking for your daily items.
Don’t Forget Your Upper Shelf
Upper shelves can be one of the first things you see and very important to keep organized. Organizing items in this area of your closet would be left for items you don’t use often if the shelves are unreachable. Keeping a small foldable ladder or step stool can help reach the upper shelf. Labeling items on the upper shelf can help you not forget what’s organized up there and also help you find items faster. You will find that if baskets or bins are labeled you have a mental note in your mind of what you are storing on your upper shelf and you won’t forget about your items.
Mirror In Your Closet Can Help With Aesthetics
Hanging a mirror or leaning a mirror against the wall will help make your closet feel like its own space. If you don’t have a walk-in closet having a mirror close by this area will help you organize and can help the space feel complete. Whether you decorate with a thin gold mirror or a white chunky wrapped mirror make your space your own.
Paint Your Closet A Light Color
If your closet has dark color paint, change it now! Painting your closet in a nice light color can help it look brighter and clean-looking. Having a light closet will help you find your items faster because you will be able to see items more quickly. Even if you have lights in your closet area, having the paint light in color can help with the aesthetics of feeling lighter.
Utilize The Corner Of Your Closet Areas
Utilizing the corners of your closet can be a great extra space. There are all kinds of corner storage units that can help you organize small items such as scarves, hats, and even jewelry. Searching for these items in the shower storage area online or in a store will be the most likely place you can find a corner storage unit. I like to store my sweater shaver and lint roller brush in these corner areas because they are not so notable in my regular closet space. Make sure you keep this corner area free of clutter.
Organize Items On Back Of Your Closet Door
There are all kinds of back-of-the-door organizers and people are using them for all different kinds of organizations. Baskets, bins, and fabric pocket organizers can be used in your closet areas very effectively.
Closet organization can become an art and using your imagination is the most creative way to start. You know your space and your style so go with the idea that fits you best. Depending on your needs of the organization and the items you’re storing will help with your decision on what organization works best for you.
