Looking to take your wardrobe organising up a notch? Here are five must-do tips on how to organise your wardrobe. You’re welcome.
Your closet is a place you spend so much time, right? Choosing outfits is a daily occurrence and if you lead a busy life it’s likely not a place you want to spend hours sifting through things in order to simply get dressed for the day.
Never fear – these wardrobe organising tips will sort you out, stat.
How to organise your wardrobe
1. Get organised the night before
To save time in the morning and start the day off on a good note, decide on your outfit the night before.
It will help keep you organised and on track when you wake up and are dying for that first caffeine hit.
2. Arrange clothes into themes
It’s unlikely you’ll wear that polka dot playsuit to work, and vice versa that you’ll wear that ball gown on the weekend to brunch.
So, one of the best ways to organise your wardrobe is to arrange your clothes into work, casual, formal, winter and summer wear.
Try to buy vacuum-sealed bags from Kmart or the like and store away summer or winter wear on the offseason when they’re not being used.
3. Create a clothes organiser system
To save time each time you look in your closet, set up an organising system so everything is visible and reachable without having to pull everything out to access things.
Our decluttering expert, Peter Walsh, recommends one of the best ways to organise a small closet with lots of clothes is to use the tabs from soft drink cans to double the number of clothes you can hang in your closet.
“Simply twist the aluminium tabs off your favourite cans of soft drink,” he starts to explain. “Take your collection to your closet and slip one end over a clothes hanger. Slip the other end over another hanger as well and now you’ve literally doubled the amount of hanging you can have in your closet.”
4. Throw or donate clothes regularly
It’s been said time and time again, but at the very least when it comes to wardrobe organisation, make sure you periodically throw out (or donate) anything stained, ripped, the wrong size, or never worn.
You’ll live a far more fulfilled, clutter free life and will take pride in wearing those items you really love.
5. Rehang or pop in the washing basket
When you come home each night, immediately rehang what you wore that day or put the item into the washing basket.
If you let your clothes build up in your room over the week your wardrobe organisation will certainly suffer and it’ll feel as if you can never quite get on top of it. And this doesn’t have to be the case!
