How to organize your wardrobe

Is your wardrobe in a constant state of disarray? Do you always have to dig through heaps of clothes before you find that outfit?  We all know that arranging the wardrobe can be a boring chore sometimes but in the long run, it saves you a whole lot of time and stress when you’re in a hurry and have to find a particular cloth, belt or shoe. This article would show you ways to properly arrange your wardrobe so everything is orderly and very visible.


Note: This chore can be time-consuming, so clear your schedule before you get into it. Now, let’s dig into that mountain of clothes!!!

Get rid of unnecessary items:

If you have clothes that are beyond repair or ones that you are no longer using, you can donate it or even sell it. The point is to de-clutter your wardrobe and create more space.

Use Organisation Tools:

The first thing to do is to get organizational tools. Examples of these are small see-through containers or boxes, shelf dividers, hangers, adhesive hooks. These things make arranging easier. For instance, you can store your shoes in cardboard boxes; as they are breathable, hang your belts and bags on the adhesive hooks. Use clear containers to store clothing items that don’t get wrinkled easily like sweaters, jeans and shorts. You can also create more space with shelves.

Hang the hang-ables: 

When sorting your wardrobes, you should hang any cloth that is liable to get wrinkled easily. Clothes like tops, blouses, shirts, flowery prints should always be hanged. The advantage of doing this is that on days when you have to quickly rush out and can’t get around to ironing, you can easily pick one.

Group the clothes:

Clothes or accessories that are alike should be grouped together. Sorting items together in one group would make it relatively easier to locate them later on. You can decide to add a professional touch and group your clothes according to the colours.

Additional tips:

You can also get shoe racks, with this; you can store all your shoes without having to take out of your wardrobe space.

For jewellery, you can get a wooden peg to hang them on. This way, they don’t get tangled.

Finally, set up a cleaning schedule, this way, you can always monitor your wardrobe and make sure it doesn’t get messy again.
