How to organize… the closet
Simultaneously the best and worst part of most bedrooms, the closet can either be an efficient storage unit or a stress-inducing black hole to which you relinquish your clothes, never to be seen again. Your best bet for making your wardrobe tidy
is introducing seasonal rotation. “The first step in the process is to take everything out. This encourages you to be a bit more discerning about what you put back in your closet,” advises design expert Ginny Scott of California Closets
. “As you use an item, flip the hanger forward. At the next seasonal change, take note of how many of your hangers have not flipped and consider it a time to purge out what you are not wearing.”
Don’t let the floor space go to waste, either: Use to store things like suitcases (pro tip: They are ideal for holding all your non-seasonal items) or organize your shoes.
For the latter option, try something like a wire rack
or smaller shelf unit
to keep all shoes neatly stored.
