I'm seriously so excited about today's post because I finally got around to cleaning my closet and today I am sharing with you just how I turned the mess into an organized array of my favorite items!
As I mentioned in the video, Ricardo and I moved into our home six months ago. If you have ever moved before, you know that just unpacking is a workload of its own. Organization is more of a luxury! Recently, our closet became pretty unmanageable, mainly because we kept piling things up hoping to put it all in its place one day. With out busy schedules, it seemed like that day would never come until I finally said, enough messy closet!
I decided to go out and purchase some organizational items that would motivate me to re-organize everything. I found these storage bins at Target and they have made everything much easier! I sorted my clothes into 5 categories in these bins: Tank tops, short sleeve, long sleeve, workout wear and sleepwear. I added little labels to make it easy to identify.
Next I tackled the rack. I think clothes on racks can seriously get so messy because you can be so tempted to just hang things up in no particular order but this just creates a mess. I started by weeding out any random hangers I had in between clothes. I then sorted item by item and determine if I wanted to keep it. When I had taken out everything I did not want, I went ahead and separated everything by category: sleeveless, short sleeve, long sleeve, and jackets.
Once I sorted the clothes I no longer wished to keep, I sorted it into 3 piles: donate, Poshmark and get rid of. Any gently used clothing items that I think are still in good shape are posted on my Poshmark closet here: https://poshmark.com/closet/misspaulalove
I followed the same procedure with Ricardo's side of the closet and organized his clothes into similar categories. I decided to hang his jeans on these multi-pant hangers that fit 4 on each. They save space and keep them neatly folded.
It seriously took me 5 hours to re-organize everything but it was so worth it! I feel like I can finally breath and its actually a joy to walk in. It has also helped wear things I forgot I had! I hope this post gave you some organization ideas and that it inspired you to get organized!
