Hugs and happy organizing is all about sharing client success stories. Here is a happy ending for organizing a teen closet.
Is your teen’s closet out of control? Too many clothes, shoes, and hats to keep organized? Too busy to get organized? Just schedule two hours with your teen on a Sunday afternoon to get her or his space organized. Organizing your teen closet will make everyone happier.
- If the floor of the closet is covered with shoes, pull them all out, match them up and see which are beyond repair or use. Drop these in the trash asap.
- Go through tee shirts and decide which are to wear and which are to make a quilt. Store the memorabilia in a box at the back of the closet or on the top shelf.
- Set a timer for 15 minutes and group clothes together by tops, bottoms, dresses, exercise, and sleepwear.
- Set a timer for 15 minutes for each clothing group. Create a consignment pile. As an incentive to your teen, getting money back for clothes will help them make good decisions about what should leave.
- Consider bins for tee shirts, swim stuff, underwear and jammies. Label the bin so everyone can drop in the items.
- Check out shoe storage options. It can be a rack on the bottom of the closet or just a basket. (Your teen won’t take time to put shoes in a box.)
- Keep it simple and easy. The easier it is to put laundry away, the more likely it will be!
- Add a 3 section laundry sorter (click on clothes on this affiliate link) to keep clothes off the floor. Place it where the clothes drop.
Kids love their clothes! Help them keep up with them with an organized closet.
