If your closets are overflowing and you no longer have enough room to store your essentials, then it is time for an overhaul. While the task may initially sound daunting, it can be achieved with the three easy steps below.
Step 1 Pull Everything Out, Sorting As You Go
I know, the last thing you want to do is pile everything in your overflowing closet into the nearby room, but it is the only way to determine what is really in there. Remember, that things will get worse before they get better—and the larger the closet, the larger the mess. As you pull things out of your jam-packed closet, sort them into four relevant piles: Keep, Donate, Trash, and Sell. If you know you will have a lot in the “trash” pile, identify a garbage disposal specialist before you get started.
Step 2 Take Inventory
As you sort through your closet, you may find that not everything in the “keep” pile will be returned to this same closet. This means that you may need to create a secondary keep pile for items that you are keeping in the closet, and for items that need to be stored in a new location in your home.
Step 3 Reorganize
Once you see all that will be returning to the closet, including items that were not originally in the closet—you will need to rethink your method of organization. This will require you to make a few investments in organizational supplies designed to maximize space. With the right tools, you can more than double your space. A few organizational tools to consider include:
- Dresser or plastic drawers
- Item specific and/or space saving hangers
- Storage containers for photos, sweaters, shoes and more
- Additional shelves
- Hanging closet organizers
The tips above will also work for organizing your attic, garage, and other storage areas. If you will be cleaning out a large closet, or multiple closets—consider a garbage bin rental from Core Mini Bins.
