Our recent move was a great opportunity to get my closet organization down right. After doing a complete closet purge, I set out to see what was missing in terms of hooks, hangers and storage. Starting every day off with an orderly closet not only makes getting dressed easier and faster, but it also instills a sense of calm each time I step into this tidy space. There aren’t a lot of things we can control in this life (sometimes not even in the rest of my own home) so I consider my closet my happy respite from all the chaos.
Occasionally, I do still have those days where I’m running late and trying on several outfits only to realize that I either don’t like the way they fit or look, or both. But, when the mess starts to pile up on the floor, I go right back to the habit I first got into when we were initially unpacking everything during our move. I listen to pod casts (lately this one) or audio books (most recently this one) on my phone to pass the time and take my mind off folding and hanging. It really does make the whole experience a lot more fun. It might seem like an obvious thing, but for me it’s made a big difference in keeping my closet organized.
As for actual products to help keep things looking orderly – here are a few that I swear by:
To plan out outfits and hold bags I use these awesome brass rods (as seen above).
Inside drawers I love these trays for holding jewelry and makeup.
And, finally, I absolutely swear by these hangers (last image below).
Do you have any great closet organizing tricks?
