Closet Organizational Tips

7 Oct

A Little Planning Goes a Long Way

The first thing you need to do is commit yourself to having the closet you really want. Think about what it’s like now, then dream about what it could be. Think about how your life would be simplified, how much time and money you would save, and how good you will feel once the job is complete.

Next think about the closets you want organized. When you determine which one makes you most stressed, start with that one.

Few things in life come without compromise. You may have to give up a few items in order to make your closet the best it can be.

Closet Organizational Excuses

Excuse vs. Truth

Excuse: “I need more space and bigger closets before I can get organized.”

Truth: By organizing your existing space, you automatically gain the extra room you need. It’s not how much space you have, but how you use it.

Excuse: “I just did my spring cleaning, so I don’t need to get organized right now.”

Truth: Organizing is not the same as spring cleaning or straitening up. If you organize properly, it’s a one-time activity. Organizing systems are fairly maintenance-free when you use them as part of your daily routine.
