Trying to clean and keep a bedroom closet organized can sometimes get the best of us, especially when you don’t know where to start.
However, once you do, you’ll be delighted with your efforts and the results.
One of the main reasons that a clean closet is essential, besides it looking nice, is for your health and wellbeing.
Having an organized closet can reduce your stress, clear your mind, provide a sense of well-being, and even increase productivity – leading to better health overall.
Now, let’s dive into the three tips that you can use to clean up your closet right now.
We’ve all been guilty now and again of having items in our closets that don’t belong there.
Maybe it’s a piece of mail that we were looking at as we came in the door or random bits and pieces that we’ve picked up throughout our lifetime.
Start by removing any of the items that aren’t clothing, shoes, accessories, or even carry-ons. This will help to prevent a cluttered closet space.
You might be wondering what the 80/20 rule entails, and what it has to do with clutter and organizing a bedroom closet.
The 80/20 rule, also known as the Pareto principle, states that 80 percent of outcomes are the result of 20 percent of input.
With regards to your closet, it often is the case that 80 percent of the time, you only wear or use 20 percent of the items in there.
That begs the questions, why do you have those items that you never use or wear, taking up space in your closet?
To address this, let’s take a look in your closet and start with individual sections. Whether it’s your shirts, pants, accessories, shoes, jackets, etc., it doesn’t matter what you choose. Go through each item type one by one.
Next, find similar items. For example, if you have five pairs of tennis shoes, even if you wear them all at different times, donate two pairs of those shoes.
Keep doing this as you go through the rest of your closet, and soon, you’ll see a big difference in both space and tidiness.
As we mentioned earlier, it can be hard to know where to start cleaning and organizing your closet space, so break it up into smaller areas.
You can start with an area as small as a single drawer or as big as a shelf.
Begin wherever you feel comfortable and build from there.
