Often our closet looks like a mess, and we never able to find what we are looking for, in the end, we select something else to wear, but don’t worry about it, just follow what we say and this problem will be over for you. In this article, we will share five simple steps that will help you organize, order and know what you have in your closet  

5. Evaluate the content

The first thing we have to do is take out all the clothes from your closet one by one and ask ourselves the following question: “If I were back in the store in front of this garment, would I buy it again?” If the answer is no, put it away; If the answer is yes, put it inside then. 

With the things we do not want, we must make three collections: One to store in boxes, in case one day we feel like putting it back on, or because you have a special affection for certain clothes, and you don’t want to get rid of them; Another, to offer your friends; and a third party to donate. 

4. Select the hangers

A closet with uneven hangers looks like chaos and disorder. When you use uniform hangers, and with somewhat superior quality, with the same style and color, you are creating in your closet a feeling of space, light, and cleanliness.

3. Chromatic order

The clothes must be ordered, first, by type of garment (pants with pants, shirts with shirts) and secondly by colors, going from the light (the whitest garment) to absolute black; from left to right, since it is the natural movement of the eye. 

2. Folded piles of clothing

One thing I learned in the short time when I was working in a clothing store is how perfect the clothes should be folded, one on top of the other, without seams, protruding, and all the edges very “round.” Well, with the shirts that you do not want to hang, pants, and other clothes, we will make perfect piles of clothes, which will finish giving that touch of order to your closet.

1. Shoes outside

Shoes should go out of the closet, both for the smell they give off and for the space they occupy. Ideally, allow a space in your room to put them, either in a shoe cabinet or in their own boxes forming columns.
