Nothing’s more important to starting the day easily than organizing your master closet.  But it can be difficult to part with expensive clothes and shoes.   Sometimes we are completely overwhelmed with the task when working on our own.  Push through your resistance and start your closet organizing.

  • Start with the floor.  Keep only what makes you feel or look fabulous.  Bring in bags to drop items in to donate.  Keep items on hangers for consignment. Ask yourself, would you buy it again today?
  • Decisions about shoes depend on comfort and wear.  Well worn loved shoes and unworn uncomfortable shoes should be the first to go.
  • Group items by category, either by color, size, style or where it’s worn.  Set up an area for clothes that are not too dirty but have been worn once or twice.  Have a routine for rewearing or hanging these back.
  • Your closet looks best with consistent hangers (affiliate link).  Whether it’s slim line or white tube hangers, your clothes pop when everything hangs at the same height and one color hanger.
  • Choose a shoe organizing product that works with the space you have.  The product should be able to house all the shoes you have currently.
  • Set up a laundry routine that works with your newly organized space.  Doing laundry more frequently is easier with smaller loads. You can complete the laundry cycle in a shorter time frame too.

    Ellen, your tips are right on!

    I have to add that I have a better self image of myself when my closet is organized with clothes that I love and fit me.

    If clothes don’t fit – but I’m not yet ready to donate – I put them in a container in my closet.

    This way, everything that is out looks great on me and I feel good in it.

    Who wants to go to a closet filled with clothes that are too little? Not me. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks Tiffany! Great suggestion to put aside the clothes you are not wearing. Out of sight and out of mind, you will be ready to donate them as you have not seen them in a while. You are right, it does improve our self confidence too to have right fitting, fabulous clothes in our closets.

    What a great post, especially for this time of year when the seasons are changing. You prime the pump for letting go, getting organized, and making our days run a bit more smoothly. After all, it’s no fun to start our day with a getting dressed challenge. Taking the time to edit, sort, and organize the clothes that fit and make us feel fabulous ensures a great start to every day. Very useful, easily implementable tips, Ellen.

    Thanks Linda! What made this so rewarding for my client is how she surprised herself at how much she was able to edit. She is starting full time this week and it will be wonderful to get ready so easily. You are so right, taking the time to edit and sort makes us feel fabulous!

    I love that you added, “Set up a laundry routine that works with your newly organized space.” After spending all, this time, setting it up, having a system to maintain it will really help. Mini gratification each week keeps you going! Thanks for sharing, Ellen.

    It’s so true that we work so hard to set up a system, we don’t realize how important routines are. It’s the best way of seeing your solid efforts every week.
