5 Tips That May Help Clean And Organize The Wardrobe Every Season
It's annoying when we can't decide what to wear every time we open our wardrobe. Whether it's because we spend a lot of time deciding how to put our outfit together or if we can't decide when the weather starts to change. The fact is that if we're not organized, it can lead to chaos in our closet, resulting in hours spent trying on clothes before deciding on an outfit to wear, leaving an unorganized mess when we're done.
It's true that we'd all love to have a huge closet where we can mix clothes all year round. But if you're not lucky enough to have your dream closet, and you don't want your summer dresses to be mixed in with your winter scarves, we give you 5 tips to organize your clothes easily:
1. Classify your clothes according to what you wear and what you don't.

Sometimes we have so many clothes stored away that only by taking everything out do we remember that shirt or pants we haven't worn in forever. If this happens to you, we recommend taking everything out to get a bigger vision of the clothes you have. That way, you'll be able to decide if it fits you well, if you feel comfortable and, most importantly, if the garment is in good condition. If the answer is no, then put it in the donate or recycle pile. But if your garment is in perfect condition, separate it for when you change clothes.
2. Select the items which you need to fix or adjust before storing them.

If you have a shirt or a pair of pants which need sewing, stains removed or to be taken to the dry cleaner, now is the moment to do it. Ideally, you should store your clothes clean and conditioned, so that they're ready the next time you need to go out. For example, storing a stained shirt at the back of the closet is condemning it to never being cleaned again. Also, keep in mind that mixing clean and dirty clothing in the same place means you'll have to wash everything again before wearing the items.
3. Clean the area where you keep your garments.

For your garments to stay clean and organized, you must first clean the place where you keep your clothes. You should air out the place and begin putting the items in place. In other words, take everything out of your closet, clean the inside of it, wash or iron the clothes if they need it, then begin folding or hanging the clothes again.
4. Changing last season's clothes.

Now that the space in your closet is clean and you know what to wear and what not to, you should begin to think about where to store the clothes from last season which you won't be wearing for several months. Boxes stored in high places are always a good option since they keep the clothing from being exposed to too much dust while keeping your closet looking organized.
This way, you'll also avoid seeing your clothes from last season. We recommend that you choose a box depending on the size of your closet. Those made of canvas, for example, are perfect for storage inside your closet, but outside they fill with dust and are difficult to clean.
5. Label the boxes you'll store.

If you decide to store your clothes in boxes, we recommend you label them, so that you can easily identify the contents without having to open them and look around inside. It's important that when storing last season's clothes inside the box, you store them in an organized way, neatly folded to avoid wrinkling and make the most of the space.
Finally, before spending a couple of hours updating your wardrobe, we recommend you organize everything according to types and uses. For example, shirts can be organized by sleeve type or color. It seems like a difficult task, but once you have an order, it'll be easier to find the garment you're looking for in no time. You'll also notice how great your closet can be when everything is in order.
