Declutter Closet…. Yep, I hear everyone saying… I need that too! My daughter’s closet was a disaster! Too many clothes, things shoved everywhere, and wasn’t functioning well anymore. Can you relate? We worked together to clean, organize, and declutter it and she loves how it turned out.
This is the before picture – she already has a fairly small closet to begin with. There were too many clothes, shoes, bags, hats, etc. You name it, it was shoved in there.
How to Declutter a Closet Instructions
Step 1 – Take it all out!
We took everything out of the entire closet.
Step 2 – Go through everything in the closet
We went through everything. We took out what didn’t fit and what didn’t belong in there. Then we went through all the clothes, shoes, hats, etc. For her, she wanted to keep everything, so I had her sort into 2 piles – “like it” or “love it”. The “love it” pile ended up a reasonable amount of clothes and such that she could keep, the other items we will donate.
Step 3 – Clean the Closet
We vacuumed the entire closet, used the brush attachment to vacuum shelves, baseboards, and edges. Then we wiped down the shelves, hanging pole, etc with a damp rag.
Step 4 – Organize
We hug up the clothes in an order that worked for her. On one side, there is 1 hanging rack so we put the longer on that rack.
We put baskets on her shelves. These baskets were organized like this:
- Regular leggings folded in 1/2 and rolled up
- Thick/warm leggings folded in 1/2 and rolled up
- Bags & purses
We pulled out all of her shoes and placed them in a shoe organizer that hung on the back of her door. This would free up the floor space for her laundry basket. We placed that on the long clothing side of the closet.
The other side of the closet has 2 hanging racks in it. We put shirts on top, pants on bottom.
Now she can see more of her clothes, and get to everything without the mountain falling on her.
