Anytime I start to feel stressed out the first place I look is at my house. Does anyone else find that their mood changes when their house is cleaner? I know mine does! We keep our house fairly clean but somehow closets and drawers get out of control. I’ve decided to slowly work my way through the house and organize and purge our “hidden” clutter. First stop: Front Closet.
Because I live in a city that goes through extreme season changes, I find our closet can get a bit out of control with all the different coats and hats that we store there. I put together a few tips on how I organized my front closet in hopes of inspiring all you secret hoarders out there 😉 I will be sharing all my organizing strategies as I move through the house!
– Divide all your articles into group (all hats, mitts, toques etc)
– Find a way that works for you to organize each group. I organize mine by colour, but you could choose to organize by style, what you wear most often etc.
– Make sure every item is visible when you put it in the closet. We use a closet shelf organizer to store our scarves, toques and mitts.
– Only store items you will be using in that season. We store our items for other seasons in a bin.
