Keeping it neat.

A few weeks ago I started to have some space issues with my closet. Although I have a walk-in closet, the space never seems enough since nothing goes out and things just keep on coming in. I realized that, in order to be able to fit everything, I needed to purchase some organization and storage pieces. My first decision was to switch all my plastic hangers to velvet non-slip ones. They are much thinner and allow me to fit many more pieces of clothing in my closet. I went to TJ Maxx and purchased a few packs of 18 hangers for around $9.99. This store has the best prices when it comes to these velvet hangers.. After this change, I was able to hang many more things and not have my clothes wrinkle because they are so clustered together. Also, I decided to fold my sweaters instead of hanging them like I used to (heard it was bad for sweaters to be hung). So i purchased a few plastic dresses from Wal-Mart and used them to storage my folded sweaters and with the extra space, I folded my scarves. From TJ Maxx, I also purchased a few drawer organizers. They help to keep your jewelry neat and separated into categories. I also have a spinning necklace holder where I hang all my necklaces (similar to #10) and a dish where I keep all my basic daily jewelry available for easy reach (similar to #12). I also bought some hooks and hung all my belts because I was starting to get upset at them having marks for being in containers. And finally, for my shoes, I purchased a shoe rack (similar to #9) where i keep my heels and flats, and a few baskets (similar to #5) to storage all my flip flops. After all these changes, I now have a much more organized closet where everything is within convenient reach. It also helps to color coordinate things, such as your clothes. I have found that this simple task keeps things neat in our eyes.
