Blog by Joette Fielding | March 11th, 2014

Closet Organizing TipsDo you find yourself frustrated because something has gone missing again in your closet? Well it might be time to re-organize your closets. From hall closets to bedroom closets, they can be a hard thing to keep organized with so many things needing to be stored there. But with the right plan in place, you can work towards a well-organized closet.

The first step to organization is purging. This is something you should do on a regular basis to ensure keeping your closet in a manageable state. Decide what the closet is being used for based on its location, like for storing seasonal items, for extra linens, your everyday closet, etc. The change of each season is a good time to purge and then it doesn't become such a large task when you keep on top of it. As you sort through, you have to be honest with yourself and look at which clothing and items you no longer use, that no longer fit, or face it…that are just not in style anymore. Throw away or donate items that haven’t been used in years. For many people that have smaller closets, and if you have extra storage space elsewhere, you can move your off-season clothes to a separate location.

You may need to purchase some items to assist in your organization.  Baskets come in many shapes and sizes will help corral all sorts of items. When you have a proper place for everything, and put everything back where it belongs, you will have success in keeping your closet clean and organized.  When setting up your new system keep the items you use the most accessible and put things used less frequently at the back or on a top shelf out of the way.

In the bedroom closet, you can set up clothing by colour, type - such as work, casual etc., and by item - like pants, dresses, shorts and so on. It is important to set up a system in every closet that is easy to use and keep in order. Keep the system simple so it can easily be maintained on a daily basis.

Another important tip is to remember to do a little every day. Take the time to tidy up and hang up the clean laundry so it stays organized.

Organizing your closets might seem to be an overwhelming job, but keep these tips in mind and you’ll be certain to keep a well-organized closet.
