Every morning is a rush and moving mountains when you open that "Closet Door" makes the choosing of OOTD, which suits your mood and shade for the day, harder. Those jam-packed wrinkled clothes, and those not-so-favorite dresses not only take up the peace of mind but getting rid of them can give room to all the new fashion attires that you have been obsessing over for a while now.
Decluttering and Organizing the wardrobe can make your life a lot easier and bring out the best of what you can be with all your favorite styles every day. We all know that a clean and organized space is a way to clean the mind.
But for sure we know that this takes a lot more mental effort than physical, but here we are to help you with all the tried and tested tricks and checks to keep handy on your Closet - Makeover day.
1. Ask Yourself-
Does it fit? Do I love it? Will I wear it again for a purpose??? Be brutally honest while doing this. The wardrobe space is fixed but your styles are not - so make sure to make way for the trendy ones.
Now it's time to get rid of all that you have identified to not have. You can always have a big heart and donate your clothes to those who would love to have them. Put them in a separate bag and now it's time for the rest of the homies to get back where they came from.
3. Categorize and label-
Differentiate each one under categories - Undies, nightdresses, work dress, casual wear, party wears, winter wears, dupattas, sarees, summer wears, accessories, and handbags. Make labels for each category that you want to assign further - Labelling is one of the best things done to find things through haystacks.
Hangers, S hooks, command hooks, baskets, bags, customized organizers. Grouping similar items together keeps the morning hide and seek at bay. Also, consider keeping the pairs together every time; keep the dupatta paired with the kurta, keep the Saree-Blouse Jodi together and half of your task would be done. Organizers and storage solutions help to make more space in the closet by accessing those vertical spaces which go wasted otherwise. They help to maintain the vertical stacks at place making the pile stand crisp every time you open those doors.
Now it's time to keep everything in its place. Keep the least used fabrics (seasonal ethnic wear) on the top shelf and the most used ones at eye level. Always keep a stepping stool nearby to easily step up and down. Preferably use the VIBGYOR color-coding to arrange your clothes - that makes finding the right one easier every day. Also, arrange the hanging clothes in order of their increasing or decreasing length. Give a home to smaller items in the wardrobe or they get lost very easily.
This helps you maintain this newly built empire for longer times than before. The more often you work on closet rearrangement, the less time it will take every time. Go through your closet quickly once a month, and tackle the full re-organization process twice a year, every changing season.
The next time you can't find an important piece of clothing that should be a sign that it's time to take a look at your closet.
