4 Easy Steps to Declutter and Organize Your Closet

Getting organized does not mean you need to jump into a full-blown revolution. It’s about the small but significant steps. Start with one thing in your closet and make things easier for yourself to get done. Don’t be concerned about over-cleaning your closet. If you feel the need to declutter your closet again, it isn’t as clean as it should be. We’ll take you through four simple steps for decluttering and organizing your closet to get there.

Step 1. Move Everything You Have from Your Closet

Remove everything, including clothes, accessories, shoes, bags, and hats. Sort everything into three piles: 

  • Keep
  • Donate
  • Trash

Put away what you want to keep in your closet. If it doesn’t fit or is not your style anymore, get rid of it. The easiest way to do this is by taking everything out of your closet and measuring the space. If it doesn’t fit within those guidelines, donate or trash it. Put the things you’re going to keep back in your closet and organize them by type and color. Repeat steps 2-4 as necessary.

Following that, you’ll need to dust your wardrobe and have it ready to bring back the pieces that will make your wardrobe a source of inspiration rather than frustration.

Step 2: Take Note of What You Have and Need to Buy to Finish Every Look

It is impossible to organize your closet without knowing what you have. You need to take an inventory of the pieces in your wardrobe and figure out what you’re missing. This helps you avoid buying unnecessary things and ensure that everything in your closet has a place. Please make a list of the items that are missing and buy them.

You may also want to replace all the essential and favorite outfits that don’t fit anymore. It’s time to invest in new clothes that will make you look and feel good. 

Remember to choose colors from your color swatch, try on the pieces, and make sure they are presentable on you and fit well, are current, and make you feel great. Keep track of whether you need to purchase any additional pieces or accessories to complete each outfit.

Step 3: Start Organizing and Bringing Back the Keepers

Start hanging your outfits in the closet, beginning with the easiest ones to put away: skirts, blouses, and short-sleeved items. Next, hang long-sleeved items and pants. The goal is to have like items together. This will make it easier for you to find what you’re looking for and put away your clothes when you’re done wearing them. Group accessories together and place them in boxes or on shelves. Shoes can be placed in a box or on a shelf. If you have a lot of hats, place them in a particular container or hang them on a hat rack.

Step 4: Arrange Your Clothes in A Light-To-Dark, Short-To-Long Order

This is the final touch to organizing your closet. When looking for something to wear, it’s easier to see what you have if the colors are displayed in a specific order. Dark clothes should be at the bottom of your closet and light clothes at the top. Shirts, blouses, and skirts should be arranged from short to long. You will quickly see what you have and grab the outfit you’re looking for.

Decluttering a closet is a daunting task, but it’s worth it. You will have more space in your closet, but you’ll also have an easier time finding what you’re looking for. Follow the above simple steps, and you’ll be on your way to having a beautifully organized closet.
