Step 2. Make the Most of Your Space

After you’ve emptied your closet and decided what will stay, it’s time to decide where everything should go. Jen Cazares, professional organizer and founder of CazaresOrganizing.com, stresses the importance of grouping like things together:

“Shirts with shirts, pants with pants, etc. I even take it a step further and group within a group. For example, within shirts, I group short sleeves, long sleeves, tanks, and also group by color. That way, there’s no question about where to find those items when you need them.”

After you’ve categorized everything, it’s time to make the most of your closet space. Assess your closet’s best features and take advantage of them.

 

Closet Organizing Tip

I was recently approached by a company to provide one of my favorite tips for organizing a closet, so here ya go:

I cannot stress enough, the most important guideline I use in closet organizing is to group like things together (not to mention first eliminating what you don’t wear): Shirts with shirts, pants with pants, etc.  I even take it a step further and group within a group.  For example within shirts, I group short sleeves, long sleeves, tanks — and also group by color. By using this tip, there’s just no question about where to find those items when you want them. I realize this may be easier said than done, which is why for many, hiring a Professional Organizer is the only answer to an organized, functional closet!
