How To De-clutter And Organize Your Closet
As part of my New Year goals (I prefer to call them goals instead of resolutions), I cleaned out and completely re-organized my closet. Girl! This took some time because I have so many clothes (and I shamefully admit, I don’t wear them all). Yes, there were clothes that still had tags, while other clothes have been collecting dust at the bottom of my storage bins.
I had to make a change….
So the first thing I did was get some inspo from one of my favorite digital places on earth – Pinterest! I looked up closet organizing ideas, and found soooo much good stuff.
Since my closet is on the smaller side, I decided to only have clothes, shoes and accessories that fit my minimal color scheme. Everything is in the black, nude, denim and grey range. I then put all my colored shirts and outfits inside my drawers that are in the bathroom. Maybe its just me, but I like having some of my clothes in the bathroom! My double vanity has so much drawer space, so I decided to use that as well.
So, here is what I came up with…
The base is an old storage bin that I covered with a white sheet. I did this to make a little table which would add more space to put some of my shoes. The rest of my heels and sneakers are hanging on the left. At the top there is a cute little inspirational quote that I love that says breathe deep, enjoy life. In the middle is a cute little vintage-looking basket that has a few towels in side, followed by my favorite perfume by Victoria’s Secret, Tease, and my favorite pink blush handbag from H&M.
Then of course are my top picks that I hung inside my closet. I have so many sparkly and glittery clothes, so naturally, these are in the front. I also have a few of my fave sweaters, blazers and jackets. I’m obsessed with blazers! I think they make any look a bit more stylish and business-casual.
Here are a few of my quick tips if you need to do a little organizing of your own:
- start with a cup of coffee, sit down, and spend some time gathering inspo from Pinterest! You wanna feel motivated and inspired to actually take on this new project.
- separate the clothes that you actually wear vs. the clothes that you don’t need (the ones you don’t need, give them away or store them in a storage bin)
- once you have the clothes you want to keep, organize them according to color, OR styles. I like to reach in my closet and know exactly where everything is.
- Add some cute photos or decorations in your closet – just to give it some extra sass. (your closet should have its own attitude, right?)
- Hang your purses and/or multiple pieces of clothing on a hanger to save space. Utilizing all your space is important, so get creative and have fun while doing it!
So that’s it ladies. I’m going to show a full YouTube Video of all the details of the pieces hanging up in my closet, and which pieces I’m absolutely in love with.
