Closet Organization | Organize in Style

You know the good ole saying, "Less is More"? Well...I like it. In my 20s, if you'd show me a photo of a sprawling 900 sf walk-in closet filled with all the material things a woman could ever desire---I'd be lying if I told you that it wasn't appealing. Fast forward to my 30s and oh how things have changed. That 900 sf walk-in is no longer appealing. Why? Because I've become a much more smarter consumer. One who realizes that the most fashionable girl isn't the one with the biggest closet, but the one with the biggest and most creative imagination. She chooses her pieces wisely, could care less about what is trending and simply beats to her own creative drums. Yes! Her. Oh how I love her. Closet organization is key whether you are working with modest space or square footage large enough to store the football equipment of an entire football team. The fact is, if your closet isn't organized---you will never have anything to wear, you'll continue spending unnecessarily and chances are, you haven't shopped your closet in a very long time.
Closet Organization | Organize in Style
------------------------------------Here are a few tips to organizing your closet----------------------------
  • Get Rid of the Junk: Prior to organizing, getting rid of the unwanted items should be the first step to organizing your closet. It is the perfect time to donate to charity, sell on Poshmark, Etsy or at your neighborhood yard sale.
  • Develop a Closet Layout and Design: Start planning out a design for your new or renovated closet space. There are plenty of professional custom closet design companies out there. Many of them offer budget-friendly design options. Easy Closets is a popular closet organization company that many rely on for custom closet projects. The other option is to do-it-yourself. 
  • Get to Work: Start by organizing your items by season, then by functional group (blazers, jeans, tops, skirts, etc) and by color. You will need to establish a storage mechanism for shoes, jewelry, scarfs, belts, hats, sunglasses, etc. No worries, I've provided a couple of my favorite storage and closet must-haves below.
  • Reevaluate the System: Once you've implemented this new system, give it some time before evaluating its success. If it works, perfect. If not, determine what aspects within the design and process you'd like to change. As your wardrobe and lifestyle needs change, there will be a need to make changes to your existing closet infrastructure. 
I hope you find these tips and resources helpful for your closet organization efforts. Until next time....Be Bold. Be Fabulous. Be You!
