Spring is in the air, and my closet is begging for some sunshine. That means it’s time for a closet makeover! When you declutter your closet this season, you’re bound to find a lot of things you don’t wear anymore, items that you forgot you had, and out-of-date styles. To avoid this in the future, try using a new organization method. Whether you have a walk-in or a single closet, these tips will work to declutter your stuff and help you find that perfect spring outfit.
1. Create no-slip hangers
When I purchase clothes at the store, I always try to ask the clerk to leave my clothes on hangers. This saves me money and my clothes don’t get wrinkled before I get them home. My one problem with hangers in general is that my tanks and sleeveless items fall off of them and onto the floor. I’ve found a quick way to fix this problem with a simple item called a pipe cleaner.
2. Organize sunglasses in style
Getting my shades on is one way to welcome spring! I have a few pairs of sunglasses and keeping up with them is quite a chore. Hang your stylish frames over a decorative hanger and you’re in business.
3. Make a scarf hanger with shower curtain rings
I’m a sucker for a scarf! The styles and colors of a simple scarf can add a punch to any outfit. But they’re overflowing in my closet. My solution? Shower rings I can find for $2!
4. Embrace an embroidery hamper for delicates
I keep my delicates in my closet until I’m ready to wash them. By taking a decorative pillowcase and threading it through an embroidery hoop, I can protect my delicate items beautifully.
5. Create dividers with shoe boxes
Narrow shoe boxes work great for organizing your clothes drawers. This works especially well in underwear and sock drawers; they help keep pieces neat and accessible.
6. Use crown molding as shoe hangers
There’s a huge empty space in my closet near the ceiling. It’s hard to make use of that space with shelving, so I recently tried using some crown molding. Now my heels hang above my head where they’re always visible, reachable, and out of the way.
