It’s Time to Organize Your Closet!

Do you struggle with what to wear every day? Is it time to organize your closet? Me too! The process of eliminating the items in my closet that were simply providing visual clutter and no joy to my life allows me to choose my daily outfits FASTER and to feel more organized.

You see, prior to my decision to organize my closet, my clothing hung on a variety of plastic hangers. Because they varied in thickness, shape and colour, it made my closet look disorganized right from the start. There’s another reason why I love my new velvet hangers – read about it below.

I’ve always wanted matching hangers.

I’m not sure why it took many years for me to make the big switch, however now that I have my new velvet hangers, I am so happy! They literally keep every single shirt I own ON the hanger, instead of falling off and landing on the floor. It also means that when my amazing daughter helps out by hanging laundry, I feel so appreciative as the job gets done with the end result being shirts ON hangers.

Another type of hanging item that helps to organize your smaller items like scarves is one of these accessory hangers.

For the men (or little men) in your life, OR if you are a woman who loves her hats, organizing them on the back of your door helps to keep their shape as well as allowing for quick choices.


We definitely can’t talk about organizing closets without the discussion of shoes. 
How many pairs of shoes do you have?

If I had more room in my closet, I would love to have something like this that hangs with drawers.




For people who don’t have an actual closet,
there are many different options.

Some people that I know also have a storage system for their out of season clothing similar to the systems below.

IF you have the desire to organize your closet, there are a two main ways to tackle the job:

  1. Empty It Completely – this method requires a lot of time in one day. Empty your entire closet and assess each and every item as you put it back or place it in the discard pile.
  2. Turn Around Hangers – with this method, you turn all the hangers one direction and when you wear an item, you turn the hanger around. After a month, assess which items have not been worn and think about WHY. If you decide an item doesn’t serve you any more (because it doesn’t fit, you don’t like it or it’s too worn), put it in the donate or garbage pile.
