It seems like it would be fairly easy to organize the closets but as it turns out it can actually be rather difficult if you have a lot of items or clutter to organize. Have you looked at your closets lately or do you just throw your stuff in there and try to ignore the mess that it’s become?
If your closets are taking on a life of their own there are professional closet organizers that you can consult. They will come in and help you organize your closet and you’ll end up with a neat and tidy closet. You’ll somehow end up with more storage space. Probably because some items have been thrown out, but also because the professional has come up with some nifty shelving or storage ideas.
You don’t necessarily need a professional to help you out. You can get some fantastic ideas online. You’ll find all kinds of ideas as to how to organize your closets and drawers. I especially like the idea of using drawer dividers to separate things like undergarments, and socks that are usually kept in the same drawer. It would just make it all the more neat and organized.
My closets and drawers aren’t the tidiest but one thing that I do that helps is that I have hideaway storage boxes on rollers that I store under the bed. Each spring and fall I go through my closets and drawers and change out my winter and summer wardrobe placing items that had been in the hideaway boxes for winter into the drawers and closets once cooler weather starts to set in, and then once warm weather returns I take the cold weather clothes out of the closets and replace them with shorts and cotton blouses and lighter clothing.
I also use hooks in my closets to hang robes and organize my closet. It really helps and it uses up that tiny bit of extra space. I even have a couple of hooks on the outside of my closet door too.
There are stores dedicated to storage space and making life easier for those who are finally getting various rooms or parts of their homes organized. You’ll find customizable closet organizing systems in these kinds of stores. They’ll certainly get you off to a good start if you have a standard sized closet. I have a very old house with very few closets and the one in my main bedroom is tiny tiny tiny … so I’m on my own as far as organizers go.
Have you organized your closets? Was it a lot of work? Was it worth it?
