How tired are you of walking into the no mans land that is your closet? If your like me then the headache has been with you for a very long time. Clutter in your closet is very frustrating because you can’t properly store your clothes much less your shoes, handbags, etc. So in order to regain composure and a sense of calm, some much needed closet organization ideas are way overdue. Let’s look at a few ways we can get rid of the clutter in the closet and make it a place of stress relieving rather than stress building.
The very first thing that has to happen in any closet is it has to be cleaned out completely and all like items separated. get rid of items that you no longer need or wear. Yes this means that pair of pants or that great looking blouse that has been sitting in the
closet for 3 years with tags on it. Hey, guess what? You are not going to wear it if you haven’t worn it in so long that there is dust accumulating on it, so give it away or sell it on Ebay. A great motto to live by is “if you haven’t worn or used it in over a year, it’s time to clear.” You will be surprised at how much space that will free up and if you have a small reach in closet then that can make all the difference in the world.
Next you need to assess your closet space and utilize it to it’s full potential. If you have a small closet with only a closet rod and shelf then look at installing wire closet organizers. These closet organization systems allow for more hanging and shelf space as well as added accessories for things like ties, jewelry, shoes etc.. The great thing about them is they are do-it-yourself systems that are extremely easy to install. They are inexpensive as well.

They are really handy for seasonal items like bathing suits and sweaters. Many retailers are now featuring closet organization systems that are very well suited for small closet organization – something most people need for those smaller closets in small bedrooms.
