How To Organize Your Closet If You’re A Man
Most women dream of walk-in closets while knowing exactly how to make the most out of a tiny one. Most men dream of learning how to organize a small closet, while the idea of organizing a walk-in wardrobe is truly frightening for them. The good news, however, is that organizing a closet is relatively easy. All you have to do is check out our tips below to learn how to organize your closet if you’re a man.
Check out the Stuff in Your Closet
One thing is sure. To organize your closet, you have to get messy. Make room on your bed and take out everything from the closet, including any items you might have stored in baskets or drawers. Then, divide your clothes into four piles: keep, store for now, donate, and bin. The first two piles will contain the clothes you’re actually wearing – place the season’s clothes into the keep pile and those that are out of season into the store for now. The donate pile is for the items you don’t use, but that are in good condition, while the last one is pretty self-explanatory.
Clean Your Closet
Now that the closet is empty and you’ve sorted out the stuff that should go back in, clean it thoroughly. A nice scrub will revitalize the space and keep your clothes smelling fresh for longer.
Put the Clothes Back
If you haven’t already done so, invest in a set of space-saving hangers. Divide the clothes in the keep and store for now piles by category and color. According to the experts, you should keep your casual clothes separate from your work attire. Dividing them by color will then make it easier to coordinate your outfit on those mornings when you didn’t hear the alarm.
Once you’ve done that, hang the shirts, suits, and jackets on hangers. Fold your sweaters and trousers and pile them up on the shelves. Any scarves and hats can be either folded and placed into a drawer or arranged on hangers.
If the closet is rather small, you can save some space by only placing the season’s clothes in the closet while storing the other ones in vacuum bags.
Invest in a Shoe Organizer
When you live in a small apartment with no room for a shoe rack, you can minimize clutter by investing in a closet shoe organizer. Options include self-standing organizers as well as hanging pouches that can be attached to the closet’s door, taking up minimal space.
Organize Your Underwear and Accessories
The smaller things are the easiest to tuck away in a drawer and forget about them. But if you don’t want to walk out the door wearing socks of different colors, it is essential to organize the small items, too. The easiest way is with some solid drawer dividers. You can either buy some or do them yourself, from cardboard.
Arrange your socks, underwear, ties, and belts according to your preference; in this way, whenever you need something, all you have to do is open the closet and find the perfect outfit at a glance.
