The Closet Getting Started
Closet Ideas brings together all of that information on organizing that will be required to make your closet work for you.
But with some helpful Closet Ideas and great strategies, you can make your closets really work for you.
With organization, storage solutions, and de- cluttering tips, you too can have a well-organized closet.
Our first steps:
Next get ready to give the closet a good cleaning
your Closet Ideas really starts here.
The three questions you need to ask yourself
Do I love it?
Do I wear it?
Does it project who I am and do I really need it?
Get ready to go through all of your clothing. One of two
steps is now going to take place, with your Closet Ideas.
Prepare to get really tough with yourself here.
If there is something you think you might wear sometime, don’t give up the space in your closet. Let it go.
There are people today that really need your help.
Giving it to charity is a very good idea.
So don’t be afraid to let something go. Know that it can become valuable to someone in great need.
Now if you find that you will wear something and it meets those three criterion's above, then put it into the keep pile.
If in the process of your Closet Ideas you still can’t let something go you might be a hoarder. If so here’s a great site to help you with your stress.
putting it all back together
Now that we’ve purged ourselves of all of those items we no
longer use, it’s time to turn our attention to storage in Closet Ideas.
Whether it’s a holder for your belts, or a tie rack, the options are endless, first have a good look at what you kept.
Think about how they will be put back into the closet.
Closet Ideas are all about making it easier on ourselves.
Hangers at Only Hangers
The Container Store
Also look to your neighborhood hardware store. Mine is filled with containers of all kinds.
I have so many shirts, that when they are cleaned I have them folded so they can be placed into containers with lids to keep out the dust.
They are see- thru, so I can find what I’m looking for.
Keep that in mind also. Make your containers see thru. It makes everything so much easier to find. You don’t have to spend a lot of money here.
But only buy what you need and have room for. So make a point of measuring a couple of times before you purchase something.
You don’t want to get home and find out that it will not work for you. Be creative. I even have s hooks in my closet to hang my clothes on at the end of the day.
I also use them for belts. I even have hooks that go over the top of my bathroom door to hold my bathrobes on.
So get creative and find new ways to store your items. Let us know what you’ve come up with.
Placing it all back into the closet
Now that we have all of the containers, s hooks, boxes, baskets, and hangers,
let’s get it all put back in place.
And I’ll bet it looks great.
Now think about a schedule for keeping it up.
Maybe two or
three times a year go through the entire closet and purge it of all of those
items you no longer use. Clearing Clutter is a very good idea.
Think of charity and give them to someone who can use them.
Here are some ideas for that.
Call Your Local Churches
They all have programs in place to help their parishioners
Call Your City Hall
There are women’s shelters that can use almost everything.They will even pick them up from You.
Local Thrift Stores
They will take most items and may even pick up in your area.
Am Vets, Disabled Veterans, and Vietnam Veterans
All of these organizations have stores and most have pick-ups available.Call your local numbers for help.Will also take most items.Give all or some of these organizations a call.
Helping those who need it the most, is a job we all have.Let’s put our best foot forward and give as much as we can.
