Shop Your Way to an Organized Closet

Sep 12, 2016 03:36AM, Published by Family Features, Categories: Family Features, Family Features Home and Garden




(Family Features) If you often find yourself standing in front of a closet bursting with clothes but can’t find anything to wear, it may be time for a makeover – not only for your wardrobe, but for your closet, too.

A recent survey of 1,000 women conducted by ClosetMaid revealed that 44 percent can’t find an item in their closet at least once a month, and 57 percent agree having an organized closet would make locating what they want easier and faster. A messy closet is frustrating, but it can be expensive, too. Sixty-one percent decided to buy something new because they couldn’t find anything to wear.

Cast off the annoyance and cost of a disorganized mess. You can introduce order and reinvent your wardrobe by shopping your closet with these tips:

Empty out your closet. If you don’t have a closet system in place, choose one that is attractive and complements your style. An option like the ClosetMaid SuiteSymphony system in Natural Gray is perfect for reach-in or walk-in closets. It is completely DIY and lets you design a personal organization system to fit a wide range of storage needs, such as long hang, double hang, drawers, open shelves and shoe shelves.

Let the fun begin. Once the new closet system is installed, or your existing one is cleaned out, spend some time exploring the stylish looks you can create from what you’ve hidden away. Get inspiration on new trends by reviewing magazines, Pinterest or a few of your favorite blogs. Be creative and find interesting ways to use your older, but favorite, garments. Experiment with different colors and try some unusual combinations. Don’t forget to accessorize your new looks and take pictures so you can remember the styles you create.

Put it all away. For the items you just never wear or can’t repurpose into a fresh new outfit, it’s time to say farewell. Remember that items in good condition can be donated or swapped with a friend for new treasures. As you put your items back in the closet, keep accessibility in mind. Don’t let favorite items get buried, and reorganize your shelves so you can see as many garments as possible.

With your newly organized wardrobe complete, you can shop your own closet to find fresh and interesting looks without having to waste time or money buying something new. Find more tips to maximize your closet space at ClosetMaid.com.
