Do you waste precious time every day rummaging through your closet? You may know what you’re looking for, but who knows where it may be mixed in with everything else. And there may even be pieces of clothing you forget you had, because they haven’t seen the light of day in years

If you’d like to quickly and easily organize your closet so that finding what you want when you want it is simple, try these 3 tips:
1. Start with a Strategy
Before you place another item of clothing in your closet, take stock of what you have and create a storage strategy.
Think about storing similar items together, and the best way to store each kind of item. For example, t-shirts and jeans can easily be folded and piled up on open shelves or in closet drawers. More delicate items ought to be hung up and grouped into types: blouses, dresses, work clothes, formal clothes etc.
Pro tip: give each item of clothing room to breathe. This means you shouldn’t squish too many sweaters into a pile or cram as many hangers as possible on a hanging rod. Sell, donate, or dispose of extra clothes and keep only what will make your closet full but not crammed.
2. Make Optimal Use of the Closet Space Available
Many homeowners let the storage space available in their closet go to waste. How can you make the most of the space you have?
While long coats, dresses, or pants may need to hang and take up vertical space, once you store all your short blouses and shirts together, there should be space underneath for more storage. You could hang another hanging rod for another level of short items, or add a shelf or drawer depending on what you have to store.
3. Create Storage Solutions for All Your Accessories
Accessories should be organized so that they’re easy to locate without taking over the closet.
You may want a specialty tie rack or belt rack, Or, if your belts won’t fit on racks, you can coil them and store them in closed drawers with compartments. Drawers dividers make it easy to create a designated space for socks, underwear, jewelry, and other accessories.
Pro tip: your favorite accessories can also add a design element to your closet display. Make them the focal point on an open shelf to add color and style to your closet.
