If you’re too busy with work, you will have a hard time doing all your chores. You will select the tasks that you can finish in whatever time you have left. Usually, organizing the closet isn’t a part of it. You don’t make it a priority if there are other more difficult tasks that you have to do right away.
However, leaving your closet as it is can be frustrating. Each time you search for something to wear, you get confused. Good clothes get buried due to the sheer volume of clothes you own. Therefore, you need to make it a habit to keep your closet organized even when you’re busy. These are some tips to help you.
Identify the clothes you rarely use
Take all the clothes you no longer use and keep them in a separate place. They will only confuse you as you determine what to wear. Once you pull them out, you will realize that your closet is way more spacious than you thought.
Buy lots of hangers
It’s easier to place clothes on a hanger than fold them. It’s also easier to locate clothes when you use hangers. The other items you can’t hang can stay in the drawers and on shelves.
Don’t wait until the weekend
Another reason why you have a hard time keeping your closet organized is that you always leave things as they are. You grab whatever you can and leave the house in a hurry. Make it a habit to keep the clothes organized even when you grab something to wear for the day. If some of them move out of place, you have to return them to the proper place. Waiting until the weekend isn’t going to help; by that time, your closet will already be messy.
Change your closet
It might be time to replace your closet if you still have a hard time maintaining it. You can consider a freestanding clothing rail like the one from Wilko (see image below) or a fitted wardrobe like the ones at www.myfittedbedroom.com since they are easy to organise. You can also customize it based on your needs and the clothes you have at home. The new closet might cost quite a lot, but it will be there for a long time. It also improves the appearance of your bedroom. It’s an addition that you won’t regret.
Your closet speaks a lot about you. Make sure that you organize it well. It doesn’t matter how busy you are with your tasks. You still need to find a way to keep things in order at home. You can’t count on anyone else to do the job for you.
If you already have a lot of clothes and you don’t want to wear some of them, you can either give them to charity or sell them via a garage sale. You will find it easier to maintain your closet when you have already taken most of the contents out. Teach your kids to do the same, so they can learn the value of organizing a closet at a young age.
