My Top 5 Tips For Organizing Your Closet

There is very little point to owning the latest bag or the most amazing TBD {little black dress} if you can’t even find it in your closet when you’re set to get dressed. A clean, easy to find and well-organized wardrobe, instead of a confusing, jumbled pile of clothes, is the best way you’ll maximize all of your purchases, and come up with polished, chic and carefully considered outfits, even on those crazy Mornings mornings! The task of de-cluttering your wardrobe can be overwhelming, so I thought I would share with you my top 5 tips to keep your space organized. Believe me, easy breezy mornings are the way to go!

Get Rid Of Your Old Clothes
It might not be easy, but tossing out or donating old clothes is the key to making room in your closet. I donate to WIN {Woman In Need} twice a year. Donate anything that you haven’t worn in more than a year. Make an honest estimate about if you think you'd wear it again. Ask yourself, would you now buy this item today, or does it have a sentimental factor that you might want to store? Also, if it’s two sizes too big or two sizes too small, get rid of it! If it doesn't fit you, it’s time to buy new clothes.

Space Management
If your bedroom is small, consider placing your dresser inside the closet. You can install shelving above it and still maximize the vertical space that your closet has to offer.

Order For Your Drawers
Fill your dresser drawers in the order that you would get dressed in the morning. Undergarments and socks on top, then tees, sweaters and jeans below.

Place Like With Like
Hang your clothes within categories such as blouses together, skirts and so on or with like colours. I hang my clothing light to dark, mostly dark. Yep. 
It'll make everything easier to find.

Keep Jewelry On Trays
If you are one to not use a jewelry box or chest, try using attractive, chic serving trays to organize necklaces, rings and other jewelry. Store them on shelves so you can pull them out easily for your outfits final touch.
