How Do I Organize My Clothes Closet
Experts in the organization field all have different ideas about how to organize your clothes, but they typically agree on what the first step is. The first step is to take all of your clothes out of your closets and drawers. When you are taking everything out you will want to separate it into types of clothing. Shirts, pants, dresses, suits, workout clothes, etc. should all have their own pile. Once you have taken all of the clothes out of your closet you can begin sorting through them. Start with one type of clothing. Quickly evaluate all of the clothes in that pile individually. Look for signs of pest infestations and other damage. As you touch each piece of clothing decide whether you are going to keep it, donate it, throw it away, or think about it. After you have done that you will need to go through the think about it pile again. It will be easier to make some decisions about this pile after you see the entire amount of clothes that you have in this category. After you have gone through all of the types of clothing you are ready to start putting everything back in your closet. It does not really matter how you choose to put your clothes back in your closet or dressers. Choose a method that works for you and go for it.
