When you’re tackling your closet, one of the first steps to organization is to edit. Too much stuff can be overwhelming, so it’s best to start by getting rid of the unnecessary. One of the most common culprits is printed documents, which can take up more space than you might think. Instead, use digital storage, which preserves important documents and also makes it easier to find what you need. This will make your closet look cleaner and more organized.

Tiered hangers

You don’t have to have expensive tiered hangers to create a clean and streamlined closet. You can find them at Walmart and The Container Store. They are designed to make vertical space more efficient. And you can choose from a variety of colors and styles. This way, you can easily find what you need.

If you’re in a tight space, try buying slim velvet hangers. These hangers can hold more clothing than normal-sized hangers. Plus, they’ll look cohesive and help you organize your closet spring cleanout. You can also try switching up the hangers you use for different types of clothes to force yourself to choose between colors and styles.

For pantries, Clea and Joanna recommend designating bins for backstock items. Label them clearly so you can easily find them when you need them.

Instead of tearing apart a room and making it cluttered, focus on a small area and try to declutter it in the shortest time possible. If you don’t have a lot of space, consider using empty boxes as sorting bins. This will help you to cluster like items together and determine the appropriate space for each zone.
