Too many clothes and too little space? To see how simple ideas can change this reality.
Select what you are going to use and what you can donate
Before starting to tidy up the closet, it is necessary to do some sorting. So, take out all the pieces you have in your wardrobe or closet and separate what you will still use in your day-to-day, and that can be donated. Doing this task will help you open up closet space and also do a good deed.
Sort clothes by type
Having defined everything that goes back to the wardrobe, organize the pieces by type. That is, all shorts, blouses, pants, shoes, etc. in separate piles. This way, you can manage everything more efficiently, without wasting space.
If your hangers are large, made of wood, opt for thinner hangers. A thicker hanger can take up space that you could use with your clothes. Look for wire hangers or other resistant material but don’t take up as much space in the closet.
Put more than one garment on the hanger
This is a good solution for those who have a lot of pants, blouses, and shirts. If your shirts are made of a fabric that doesn’t wrinkle too much, try placing one on top of the other open on the hanger. If you don’t have a trouser hanger, put more than one pair of pants in half on the regular hanger (in the gap in the middle). The same goes for cotton sweaters.
Drawer space can become a pile of clothes for those who aren’t organized. That’s why drawer organizers can be the salvation from clutter. On the market, you can find models of different types: boxes, beehives, etc. Choose the one that best suits your needs. This is an excellent solution for organizing socks, scarves, ties, belts, and even blouses.
Don’t know how to organize your clothes on the shelves? Use the organizer boxes. You can put all kinds of clothes, towels, and accessories in these compartments without taking up too much space. In addition, you can label each box, so you don’t forget what’s inside.
Make clothes rolls
Storage experts ensure that making rolls with your shirts and other items can take up less space in your closet; besides being functional. Try organizing your gym clothes, shorts, bedding, etc., in this way and check the multiplication of space.
Vacuum packaging is perfect for reducing the space taken up by duvets, winter coats, and other clothes you don’t wear daily. They can be used more than once and are very practical. Put your clothes in the package, close, and suck the air inside (through the outlet indicated on the package) with a vacuum cleaner. It’s worth having and gaining more space for your clothes.
Your collection of flip flops, sneakers, and flats can best be stowed in TNT bags or organizers with separations. This solution allows shoes to be stored on top of the other, without wrinkling, and gain more space in the wardrobe.
Panties, underwear, and bras take up a lot of drawer space if put on anyway. Try folding and arranging them to avoid clutter. The bras can be placed one in front of the other or with a crisscross fold in half, with one cup on top of the other.
Purses usually take up a lot of space. So try placing them side by side on the shelves. The smaller ones can be placed on top of each other. The goal is to fill the entire shelf space without waste!
