When you are getting ready for your day, are you able to find what you need in your closet easily? Or, is getting dressed in the morning a struggle, a hassle, or a generally unpleasant experience? Here are five simple guidelines for closet organization.
- Your closet should be no more than 80% full. Any fuller and you don’t have space for your hanging clothes to swing freely while you are choosing your outfit for the day. Avoid overstuffing your closet by donating ill-fitting and unworn clothes regularly. Move off-season items to clear labeled bins under the bed and switch your wardrobe out in the Spring and Fall.
- The items in your closet that you touch daily should be in clear view and at chest height.
