How To: 5-Step Closet Makeover

1.) Edit Your Wardrobe 
For each item in your closet, ask yourself, "Would I buy this today?" and "Have I worn this in the past 12 months?" If the answer to either question is "no" then donate or toss it, depending on the condition.

2.) Arrange It Like A Boutique
Many shops arrange their clothing by item. Putting skirts with skirts, shirts with shirts, etc. will not only help your closet to look more uniformed but you will be able to find clothing items more easily if everything has it's place/category. If you want to take this a step further you can organize each category by color as well.

3.) Update It Seasonally
It's a good idea to reassess your wardrobe quarterly as a kind of inventory check so that you know what you should be shopping for throughout the year.

4.) Use Uniformed Organizing Solutions
Invest in all of the same kind of hangers and opt for clear or plastic boxes for a more uniformed, practical solution when organizing your closet.

5.) Stick To Your System
Recognize that staying organized is a learned habit, stay mindful of keeping your closet clean and organized and eventually it won't require much thought...staying organized will soon become second nature. Always put things back in their place immediately instead of waiting and doing it later because your closet is more likely to stay organized if you stay on top of it.

Happy Organizing! :)
