This month at Sunny Spaces Organizing, we're focusing on helping busy moms get organized. As a busy mom, it can be challenging to stay organized, especially when it comes to your closet. But with a few simple tips and tricks, you can create an organized closet that will make getting dressed in the morning a breeze. Let's explore some of the best ways to organize your closet, no matter how busy you are.
1. Start with a Clean Slate
The first step in organizing your closet is to start with a clean slate. Take everything out of your closet and give it a good cleaning. This will help you see what you have and give you a chance to get rid of anything you no longer need or want. As you go through your clothes, ask yourself if you've worn it in the last year. If not, consider donating or selling it.
2. Make Use of Hangers
One of the easiest ways to keep your closet organized is to use hangers. Choose hangers that are sturdy and can hold the weight of your clothes without bending or breaking. You can also invest in specialty hangers like velvet hangers, which are slim and space-saving, or hangers with clips for pants or skirts. When hanging your clothes, try to keep them in categories like shirts, dresses, pants, and skirts. This will make it easier to find what you need when you're in a rush.
3. Utilize Baskets and Bins
Baskets and bins are a great way to keep your closet organized, especially when it comes to accessories like scarves, hats, and gloves. You can also use them to store shoes or handbags. Look for baskets or bins that are sturdy and stackable, so you can make the most of your vertical space.
4. Invest in Shelving and Drawers
If you have the space, adding shelving and drawers to your closet can make a big difference in keeping everything organized. Shelving can be used to store folded clothes or shoes, while drawers can be used for underwear, socks, and other small items.
When choosing shelves and drawers, look for options that are adjustable or modular, so you can customize them to fit your needs. You can also label your drawers and shelves to make it easier to find what you're looking for.
5. Maintain Your Closet
Once you've organized your closet, it's important to maintain it. Make it a habit to put things back where they belong, and avoid letting clothes pile up on the floor. You can also schedule a regular cleaning day to dust and vacuum your closet to keep it looking its best.
Organizing your closet as a busy mom doesn't have to be a daunting task. By starting with a clean slate, using hangers, baskets, and bins, investing in shelving and drawers, and maintaining your closet, you can create an organized space that will make getting dressed in the morning a breeze.
