Some of the perks of living a minimalistic lifestyle include less stress, fewer material possessions to deal with and fewer expenditures. It's possible to possess less yet still find yourself unorganized. Closet organizational systems can be an asset to your home and a time-saver in your daily life.

Simplistic closet storage systems complement a minimalistic lifestyle. Metal closet storage systems are typically sleek, space-saving and efficiently designed. As a minimalist, you may have chosen to follow the trend of small home living. If so, the closet space in your home is probably quite limited. Metal closet organizers take up less space than the larger wooden closet organizers. This type of system offers you space for hanging clothes, shelves for storing clothes and accessories and organizational space for shoes.

If you have a spacious closet, you have lots of closet organization design options. Having reduced your wardrobe, shoe collection and accessories to a small number of items, you may be able to use some of your closet space as a dressing area. You can add some lighting and possibly a piece of wall art to make your closet a more personalized space.

Once you've chosen the closet storage system that best accommodates your needs, it’s essential that you chose an organizational method that you are comfortable with. You may want to designate an area of your closet to clothes you wear to work and another area for leisure wear. Having individual sections for pants, skirts, shirts and jackets will enable you to quickly select an entire ensemble. To maximize your organizational skills, one section of your closet could be used to accommodate a week’s collection of clothing. Each morning, all you’d have to do is reach into that section and pick up your day’s wardrobe and accessories.

If you take notice of what you typically wear in a month’s time, you’ll probably see that you wear the same favorite articles of clothing repeatedly while other items remain untouched. As you organize your closet, put only those items that make the list of favorites in the closet and donate what’s left over. It’s a good idea to access what you intend to place in the closet prior to purchasing a closet storage system. In doing so, you can choose organizational configurations and storage features that are most appropriate for your clothing and accessories. If your collection of shoes is small, all you’ll need is a small shoe rack. If you prefer that your clothing is organized according to color, you may need several sections to hang clothes in. Baskets and hooks can help keep small accessories organized.

Even if you have a minimal amount of items to store, it’s best to store them in an organized manner. Staying organized saves time and can reduce stress and frustration.
