Organizing your closet can revolutionize your morning routine. Having a place for everything and everything in its place can make getting dressed a dream. If you have never tried this organization process you should consider it, because it is a tried and true method to organize your closet. Here is how to proceed:
1) The Three Magic Piles: Take everything out and make three piles. One is to keep, one is to donate or sell, and one is trash.

With warmer breezes blowing, you’ll be inspired to open your windows, air out your home and begin your spring cleaning. It’s great to get in there and really start cleaning the home after a long winter. However, that’s only the first step to creating a lovely, uncluttered home the rest of the year. It’s important that your spring cleaning also includes setting yourself up for continued success in keeping your home clean and organized by taking the following steps.
Managing Your Items
Once you’ve cleaned your home, you need to find a way to manage your things in the future. Cleaning your home once a year isn’t the greatest way to gain the most enjoyment out of your space. You need to be realistic about how you manage the items that come into the home. Be realistic about what you’ll use and what will be hard to manage. A front entry with adorable boxes tied in ribbons might be magazine-worthy. If the idea of untying the box each time you need to use it makes you cringe, it’s not something that will fit with your lifestyle.Read More

Much has changed over the past few decades in terms of the society we live in, the technology we use, and how we work - and modern housing trends will likely see an even faster pace of acceleration over the next decade.

Even if your house is the cleanest on the block and even your dogs know to put their toys away when they’re done with playtime, keeping a tidy, organized closet always seem to be just out of reach. Here are a few closet organization tips to help you maximize your storage space and rid your bedroom or hall closet of unnecessary clutter.
1. Discard any superfluous items Closets are supposed to be for garment, shoe and accessory storage, but they often end up being depositories for all of the stuff that we don’t need right now, but might need or wear later. The fact is, many of the items that you think you’ll wear later could be dismissed by a quick rundown of your closet. Doing this task with a friend will improve your efficiency even more, particularly if it’s a friend whose fashion sense you trust. Removing damaged clothes, clothes that are a few sizes too big or too small, or baubles that are no longer in fashion can have a major impact on the storage capacity of your closet.Read More
