7 Must-Try Tricks for Organizing Your Walk-In Closet , Columbia, Missouri

Looking to finally get organized this spring? Start with your walk-in closet. In theory, the more space you have, the neater it will be, but in reality, the exact opposite is usually true. Organize That Space, located in Columbia, MO, offers seven easy organizational tricks for taking control of the clutter in your closet.

7 Tips for Organizing Your Walk-In Closet 

1. Get It All Out

Taking everything out of your walk-in closet is the starting point for any effective cleaning effort. Without removing everything ahead of time, you’re unable to see what you have, what you need, and what kinds of custom shelves and storage systems you’ll require to complete the task.

2. Get the Right Tools

No one can master the art of consistent organization without the right tools. A good broom, a practical and convenient closet organizer, and plenty of labels are the tools of the trade when it comes to closet organization.

3. Think in Levels

When deciding how to allocate your closet’s storage space, think in terms of levels. The items that are used daily should be at eye level, while those that are used once a year should be out of sight. Bedding and sheets should go above clothing, while shoes can be placed on the floor.

4. Take the Time to Measure

5. Add Drawers to the Closet

Installing a set of drawers for foldable items is a simple way to store a number of pieces without taking up additional space. For further convenience, look for a set of drawers with wheels that will allow you to rework the space whenever you want.

6. Dedicate 15 Minutes Daily

Everyone has 15 minutes to spare at the end of each day. Dedicate this short chunk of time to taking care of any carelessly placed items in the closet, and you’ll avoid going back to the original state of chaos.

7. Set a Monthly Purge Date

Purging your walk-in closet regularly is a lot faster than forcing yourself to dive in and do a massive cleanup at the end of the year. Set a date on the calendar, and get busy throwing things out once a month. Chances are it won’t take more than a half hour each time if you’re consistent.
