Closets get disorganized; it’s a fact of life. It’s all too tempting to throw items and close the door as quickly as possible so you won’t have to see the mess that was just created. Over time, this clutter grows and creates a space that isn’t functional or efficient. A cluttered space often means an unusable space. You can’t find anything, there are clothes and shoes all over the place, and it’s impossible to clean up. Or is it? Do you have to give up hope on your closet when it’s disorganized? This professional organizer says no, not at all! It’s all about practical steps.
Starting Small with Closet Organization
Most great things aren’t achieved quickly, and you probably can’t clean an entire room or closet efficiently in one hour. Who has the time for more than that, though? Unless you hire a professional organizer (like Sane Jane, hint hint), we’d recommend practical, concrete steps to take every day when cleaning your closet. Every time you grab something from the closet for the day, adjust two other things that are out of place. Fold some clothes, move some shoes, toss something into the hamper to be washed, etc. You might even consider donating old clothes you no longer want or need so that you can have more of what you love. Whatever the action, these are the kinds of things that can lead you back on track with organization.
If you have a larger closet, chances are that you’ve got more than just clothes on a rack. You have pants, shoes, jackets, undergarments and more that all need a proper space. Bigger closets can be daunting because there are so many different types of items and seemingly everything is disorganized, which leaves you feeling cluttered. Ironically, the time it takes to clean a closet might be made up for when you’re able to locate exactly the dress you want to wear in a flash. In a disorderly closet, your favorite shirt probably seems to go missing every other week. When professionally organized, all is available and ready to be worn for the day!

What should you do when you don’t have the time to organize a closet yourself or aren’t sure how to declutter?
