5 Secrets to Decluttering a Closet

One of the constant struggles for many apartment dwellers is finding enough storage space. Therefore, many people cram things into their closets promising themselves that they will deal with it later. Use these secrets to make dealing with your closet a reality today.

Get a Big Enough Closet

Many apartments come with very small closets. This can make having an organized closet an impossible task. Therefore, when you are searching for apartments for rent in Huntsville AL, then consider The Moderne at Providence as you will love our spacious closets. Additionally, each unit comes with a full-size washer and dryer helping to keep everything clean.

Know Why You Have Items

If it has been a while since you have really cleaned your closet, then you may be surprised how many items you have stuck in it telling yourself that you would deal with it later. Set aside some time and take everything out of your closet. If you have not worn it or used it in more than a year, then it is time to get rid of it. If you have nice clothes, consider taking some to a consignment shop allowing you to earn some extra cash. Other items may be perfect for posting on social media for sale while others may need to be donated. You may be surprised at the number of things that you have put in the closet instead of the trash can.

Get Supplies

Now, look at your items and decide how you are going to deal with what you have left. If you have a bunch of shoes, then a shoe organizer may be the perfect solution. If you have a lot of folded items, like t-shirts, then put some storage shelves in your closet to hold them. Splurge on a nice rug for your closet as it will encourage you to keep everything picked up so that you can see it when you open the closet door. You can hang outfits together by using the tabs off soda cans to connect hangers together one above the other.

Store Out of Season Clothes

Create a system to store out of season clothes so that they are not taking up hanging space in your closet. A great way to do this is to get your friends and family to give you their old bags that comforters come in. Then, neatly fold your out-of-season clothes and put them in the bags. Zip the bag closed and put them on a closet shelf.

Reward Yourself

If you are like most people, you can think of a zillion things to do besides keeping your closet organized. Therefore, plan a special way to reward yourself once you have organized your closet. For example, if you live at The Moderne at Providence, go for a walk on one of our walking trails, take a dip in the pool or host a cookout for friends in the outdoor kitchen area.
