Time Saver | 6 Quick and Simple Ways to Streamline Your Closet

I’ve never stopped fantasizing about that transformative moment when my scattered closet mutates into a state of perfect order, allowing me to move seamlessly throughout my day. And then I wake up! Streamline your wardrobe with these fast organization tips below, and you’ll never have to suffer the nightmare of wasting time again!

1

SEPARATE

.

Divide your closet into things that truly bring you joy (be honest here!), and put aside those that don’t. Mary Condo in her “The Life Changing Magic of Tideying Up” summarizes it well. Then follow my personal methodology below:

Brings You Joy: Repair, store, keep.
Doesn’t Bring You Joy: Toss, donate, sell.

Apps such as Poshmark, Tradesy and threadUp are excellent at helping you make a few extra dollars on your used items. Just take a photo, post and sell! It’s that easy.


2

ORGANIZE

.

For items you kept, organize by categories such as pants, sweaters, etc. Follow by dividing those into subcategories such as wide leg pants, turtlenecks, etc. And if you’re an overachiever (not pointing fingers here), feel free to color code in the subcategory, moving from darkest to lightest.

OurBFF Tip: Put most worn items closer to reach, while seldomly worn items should be further away.


3

HANG

.

Organize by type of hanger to avoid shoulder dents and slippage.

No slip hangers for lighter pieces such as silk blouses.

.

Wooden hangers for heavier items such as blazers, suits, and jackets. These Amazon ones are also a good option.

.

Specialized hangers for items such as slacks and skirts. Always hang both from waist down to avoid sharp lines.

.

Multi-Use hangers will work if you want to streamline your closet with versatile hook options. Here is one for more heavy duty pieces..
