Unclutterer editor appears in Ready Made magazine

Is your closet busting at its seams? Have you been looking for ways to get a little more functionality out of your wardrobe? Are you searching for a good magazine to read while on vacation?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions (or even if you didn’t), you should check out the latest issue of Ready Made magazine for my article “Easily Arranged: 10 ways to achieve the ultimate in closet organization” on pages 40 and 41:

As the title suggests, the article has 10 ideas for how to curb clutter and maintain order in your closet. Also, my picture and a short autobiography appear on page 86 of the magazine. I had Comic-Con on my mind when I wrote my autobiography, so it’s a little on the wacky side. The superpower I mention having, by the way, is completely true.

If you don’t already have a subscription, you can pick up Ready Made at your local bookstore or newsstand. I’m interested in hearing what you think of the suggestions!

    I thought it was a good article. I loved the first suggestion about the hook for pjs and jeans etc. my husband has his “home clothes” and when he gets dressed for work or undressed for bed he just leaves them in a pile on the floor of the bedroom for “later”. It makes me crazy but I couldnt come up with a better solution. Until Now! Thanks!

    I liked the Turncoats suggestion. My friend swears that he wears all his clothes or most of his clothes, but I can tell that he wears that same things over and over again and the rest of his clothes are just creating clutter. I’ll have to try this one on him. Thanks for the tips!

    @Fit — Ready Made has a circulation of around 300,000 (at least that is the info. I got off their advertising page) and is published by the same group as Better Homes and Garden.

    You do know the tips are online, right? Hope you didn’t let your web rights go without realizing… (But I ordered a sample subscription anyway.)

    Very nice article! My favorite closet tip: keep a big sturdy shopping bag in your closet. Any time you decide something “just isn’t right for you,” toss it in! Then, when they call you (they call me about every month) for charity donations, just give them the bag! I use a similar scheme for my kids – when the big one grows out of something, I save it for the other. When the little one grows out of something, off to the charity bag it goes!

    did you go to comicon? did you love it? was it organized? are you coming to worldcon?

    ps: do you collect comics and are they properly stored?

    Great ideas Erin. But instead of a wastebasket, I keep an empty facial tissue box on the shelf for those little pieces. About the time it’s full of trash, I’ve emptied another box of tissues.

    My favorite closet organization tip is a shoe holder on the back of my door. I don’t put shoes in it though. Rather is holds sunglasses, deodorant, moisturizer, scarfs, mittens, and almost everything else that I need easily accessible.

    @ Jocelyn – LOL! Love it!
    Congrats, Erin. Well done – as always. =)
