Getting the Most out of your Closet: An Organization Guide

Closets are known to be one of the messiest storage areas in your home. It is all too easy to shove in what you don’t want seen and close the door. When it comes to your closet in your bedroom you need to have it clean and organized if you wish to have an easier time getting ready each day. To help you in the process we at Ogden Self Storage can provide you with a storage unit for your out of season clothing and items you just don’t use anymore. Below is an organization guide to help you in organizing your clothing closet.

Completely Empty Out the Closet

The best way to start any organization project is by emptying out all of the items you have in your closet. Designate a space in your home to place all of your items. Once you have everything removed you can go through your belongings and decide what you will keep, donate, or place in storage. You can create a lot more storage space in your closet by switching out seasonal clothing and placing the out of season clothing in a storage unit at Ogden Self Storage. To help you with the sorting process you can use bins and/or a hanging rack to help you to get a better idea of exactly what you will be keeping.

Eliminate Non Clothing Items

If you are using your closet as an in home storage unit you will want to find them a new home. Every item should go in the room it coincides with. If you are still unable to find the space you need, your new storage unit will help you to free up some storage space throughout your home.

Clean the Closet Surfaces

When we say clean, we mean it. Now is the perfect opportunity to give your closet a good scrub before placing all of your clothing back on its shelves. Wipe down all of the surfaces with a disinfectant wipe or wet wash cloth. You will be surprised at how much dust has accumulated throughout the use of your closet. If you have carpet on the floor of your closet you will want to give that a good vacuuming as well.

Put Away and Enjoy

Now you can begin placing the items and clothing you decided to keep back in your closet. You will begin to notice how much room you have. Stay organized by using bins to contain your smaller wardrobe accessories. Purchasing a shoe rack or organizer is also a must. You can color code your clothes or separate them by pants, skirts, and shirts. Do what would work the best for you and your morning routine.
