5 Pain Free Tips For Organizing a Closet

Just knowing that there is a mess of clutter hiding behind those closed closet doors can be stressful and distracting. Then when you open them to try and find something, chaos is unleashed, and the tranquility of your life is despoiled in a mess of useless junk.

Don't despair! Using the five simple tips below, you can tame the tempest and bring order back into your closet, and your life.

1. The Six Month Rule

The six month rule states that if something has been sitting in your closet,
and has not been used, worn, or referred to in the last six months, it is
time to get rid of it. This applies to old clothes, accessories, and clutter
of every kind. It is time to get serious and toss that stuff, or at least
donate it to a reputable charity

2. Organization and Strategy

Before you start organizing a closet, you have to have a vague sort of
strategy in mind. You don't have to know exactly where everything goes right
from the start, but it helps to have a general idea that shoes go in one
corner, hats go in specific bins, and ties are hung on that specific side of
the space. This rough idea lets you develop the space further as you go

3. Storage Bins and Hooks

The numbers of storage accessories you use will depend on your personality.
Some people prefer to lump things together in bins or boxes, and then search
around whenever they want to find something specific, while others will want
thousands of containers, clearly labeled, so that they can put their hands
on anything as soon as they want. Which ever way you prefer, make certain
that you have as many bins as you will actually use, on hand at all times.

4. Consistency

Consistency refers to putting things back in their proper place, each and
every time. Will power is the only way to ensure this.

5. Balance

In the end, achieving organization is a balance between your personality,
your possessions, and the space you have available. You can't spend all day
every day putting each earring in its own bin, but if you throw all of them
together in one box, you will never be able to find a matched pair. It is
important to be aware of your own personality, and the constraints of the
space, whenever setting out to organize your closet area.
