It’s the weekend once again and time to relax and garner some strength against next week but don’t forget, you also need to prepare for the weekdays; mentally, physically and of course arrange your closet and lay out all your work clothes.
Many of us can’t quickly recall the color of a blouse or a dress and most times can’t seem to remember that a clothing item we purchased still lies in our closet! Organizing, hanging clothes or folding your clothes using color coding is an important part of not only having an organized closet but a functional and ideal space for retrieving your things… plus it looks beautiful. It also reduces the chances of saying “ooh I forgot I still had that shirt or those pants…”
Here are some tips that help you save time by transforming your closet from chaos to order.
Take it all out
Empty your closet. Pull out everything from the hangers; your shoes, coats, tops, dresses, everything! The chaos is only for a short while.
Clean your closet
Starting afresh means even the closet itself gets some TLC. Get some wet rags and start cleaning shelves, cabinets, floors, drawers, and walls. No dirt left behind.
Put an end to the hoarding
Separate what you haven’t worn in the last 2 years or won’t wear from what you frequently wear. Bite your lip and toss any unworn shirts into the Goodwill bag. It is worth it.
Group like terms
Group similar types of clothing together. Try and keep everything in groups like shoes with shoes, blouses with blouses, you get the point.
Within each group of clothing type, create color blocks using the rainbow method to color coordinate, like this: white, tan, pink, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet, brown, gray, black.
And if you have patterned items with multiples colors, not to worry, we’ve got you covered.
Create a “patterned section” in your closet by arranging each item based on the it’s dominant color.
Now you are ready for the week, with the added pleasure of showing off your new closet to your friends. Have a lovely weekend and let us know if the system worked for you in the comment section!
