Organization Clothes and Storage Methods
If you don’t have much space at home to organize and store your clothes, you need to learn some techniques for saving space to create a peaceful environment. We’d like to fill you in on some methods to try out on your own.
1.- Donate clothes that you don’t use anymore
As long as they don’t have any personal value, you should start by taking out the clothes you don’t use any more to make more space. It’s a good idea to start by asking yourself if you really put on all of your clothes.
Also, if you have many clothes that look alike, then keep only the ones that you like the most. Once you’ve finished sorting through them, you’ll probably have around half of your former pile.
2.- Change your clothes according to the season
Consider the time of the year it is and put away your clothes that you won’t put on during the current season. It’ll be great if you can use a storage room. However, if you don’t have any extra space, separate your clothes according to the season to make it easier to find what clothes to put on at any given moment.
3.- Hang your clothes
You might think that a lot of your clothes don’t need to be hung up, but vertical organization is always better. Hanging up your clothes on thin coat hangers will allow you to fit more clothing into a smaller space.
You’ll be able to organize them into different categories: first, you can do shirts, then sweaters, and pants afterwards. Also, you could hang longer clothing on one end, and your shorter clothing on the other.
These are some of our recommendations for keeping your house in order, even if you don’t have a closet. Let your imagination run wild and you’ll think of plenty more ideas for tidying up your clothes. So, go ahead and give it a shot!
