9 Tips and Tricks for an Organized Closet (Infographic)

By
Industry Observer with Press Cleaners

I think nearly all of us can attest to throwing all of our belongings into a closet with no real thought to how it's organized. But statistics show that 80% of clutter in our home is actually a result of disorganization, not lack of space. 

While we can all jump into our current closet, one of the best times to organize your closets is when you're unboxing your whole life after a move. It gives new homeowners the perfect opportunity to go through belongings and figure out where everything should go, or if certain things shouldn't make it onto a hanger or shelf. In the infographic below, I've laid out 9 tips and tricks for an organized closet. Hopefully, it'll help some of you or your clients gain a bit more peace of mind.

These are all good ideas for me, except for the color sorting.  That would make smoke come out of my ears............

Haha, it definitely isn't a fun process but it's really nice when it's done. I decided to do it one Sunday afternoon and haven't looked back since. It's easy to add your clean clothes into the right spot once you've done the hard work.

How is Austin these days?  It's one of my favorite cities.  I love the people and the progressive environment.

I love it, but it's having some huge growing pains. We've got some expensive real estate and ridiculous traffic. The tech scene is booming though, so that's a plus.

Hi !Jake,

These are all excellent tips.  I'm good with closet organization (including by color).  My problem is I have too many closets so I have way more than I need, even though it looks organized.  LOL    My office room?  That's a whole 'nother story

Thanks for sharing this post.
