Tips For A Clean Closet


The closet is a part of the house that we tend to either keep really clean or it ends up collecting everything and anything.  When it comes to ways to organize your closet, many people have a lot of different methods to accomplish this.

Throw stuff away

One thing that keeps our closets messy is our failure to throw things away.  We tend to keep things that are five to ten years old in a closet.  Shirts that we haven’t even warn that still have the tags on them are probably the number one culprit in my closet. 

The rule of thumb is if you are going to bury it in the back of the closet or you haven’t touched it then just toss it.  You will feel better and you will never even remember you had it.

Buy organizational units

They make specific units and devices for your closets.  These hang from hooks, are stuck in corners and much more.  These are typically fairly cheap and can be used for shoes, clothes and personal items.  They are very handy and should be considered.

If you need to keep it, put it up high

If you have to have it and you don’t want to part with it, put it up high.  This means put it on a top shelf or other location in your closet where it is out of the way.  You want to write what it is on the outside of a box and put a date on it.  Then when you go to manage your closet again, you can determine if you really need it by the date.

His vs hers

Another option that you can do is have a his and hers closet.  In some cases you might not have this option but consider it.  If you have a room that is not being used consider moving some stuff over there.
