Does walking into your closet every day stress you out? Does trying to organize your closet make you feel overwhelmed? As a professional organizer, I know that certain closet organizing products can really make a difference in your space. Here are some of my favorite products that make your closet work better for you!
Maximizing and organizing your space (especially closets!) is important. Remember when we talked about some ways to organize your coat closet? Closet organization can feel difficult when it changes so often. But with each season, your closet and the way it’s organized should fit your needs. You should be able to see what you have and what you like. Otherwise, just walking into your closet or trying to organize it can feel quite stress-inducing!
Why Should Closet Organization Be a Priority?
Your clothes should make you feel calm and confident. So shouldn’t the space they live in be, too? Whether you choose your clothes for the week all at once or the morning of, seeing your choices can decrease those sometimes-stressful decisions. You most likely aren’t going into your closet a lot during the day. But when you are, you want it to be an effortless visit.
What’s the easiest way to decrease time spent pulling out clothes or agonizing over what to wear? The BEST way is to eliminate as many items as possible — the ones that don’t fit, are no longer your style, or are uncomfortable.
Once you’ve purged your closet, you can add a few thoughtful products to help you maximize space and efficiency. Here are a few of my favorites to help your closet stay organized.
