Closets make such tempting clutter traps. With the door closed, your friends and family aren’t exposed to the mess – at least, until they go to hang up their coat or search for something. Here are five solutions to help cut closet clutter:
1. Make the Trip-
Don’t use the closet as a dumping ground for things you don’t want to put away. When you’re cleaning up, take the time to put things away where they go.
2. Divide and Conquer-
Using closet dividers helps you find the clothes you already have and manage them accordingly. It’s amazing how much putting things in the right place changes the appearance of your closet.
3. Hang it All-
Closet floors can get especially jumbled, so it’s better to distribute things vertically. Over-the-door racks help keep closet floors clean…
4. Pen it Up-
…and Square Pop-Up Bins take care of the rest by keeping things from spreading across the floor.
5. The Hanger Trick-
Reverse all the hangers in your closet. When you wear something, put the hanger back the right way. After a few months, pull out all reversed hangers and donate the clothes you haven’t worn to charity. You won’t even have to think about which clothes you have worn – the proof will be right there.
