Spring Cleaning Your Clothes Closet

You’ve probably got some time on your hands with this Covid-19 stay at home policy.

If so, check out this blog post that I posted on spring cleaning your clothes closet:

A few years ago, I wrote this blog post on keeping your clothing closet organized. I’m wondering if any of my blog readers followed my advice. If so, congratulations!  

But, even with good intentions you may have ‘backslided’ a bit (reverted to former clutter behaviors) by throwing your clothing and accessories on a chair or the floor instead of hanging them in the closet. Or putting them in a dresser drawer like you meant to. (For instance, every morning, I hang up any clothes I’ve left on the ottoman overnight.)


However, if you have ‘backslided’ a bit, or haven’t even begun to purge, sort, and organize your clothes closet and drawers, the following suggestions will help you keep your clothing organized:

• Firstly, hang just one outfit for the next day on the hook or knob outside your closet door.

• Secondly, keep a small bench or step stool near your closet for easy access to clothing on high shelves.

• Purchase clothing hangers that are the same type and color for consistency in the closet.

• In addition, if you are wishing you had a closet organizer? Stop wishing and buy one. As most stores are closed, you can order on-line.

• Place your clothes in a color coded manner to make it easier to choose what color you want to wear each day. Hang blues, purples, reds, oranges, browns, black, grey tones, and whites in consecutive order on the closet rods.

• Keep only one season of clothing in your closet and store the other season’s clothing elsewhere. You could even store seasonal clothing in vacuum-sealed storage bags to free up space.

• Stack certain categories of clothing such as sweaters, gym sweats, or jeans on your closet shelves if there is room, instead of in the dresser. I do, and it works very well.

• Use plastic stacking bins with drawers in your closet to create more space in your dresser.


In conclusion, after following some or all of these suggestions, let me know how your your clothes closet fares.  I’d also love to hear any other tips you might have on Spring Clothing Closet Clearing!
