One way you can guarantee a great start to the day is for you to have an organized closet. You will be able to find what you need exactly when you need it and get ready for your day with ease.
Whether it’s your go-to loungewear, your favourite jumper, or your little black dress, you will feel like you have a tidy mind and are ready to tackle the day ahead when you have a perfectly organised closet.
Whether you have built-in wardrobes, a freestanding one, or use a chest of drawers, it can still pay off to ensure you are fully organised. Let’s have a look below at some of the tasks you should tackle:
The first thing you should do is sort through all the items that are currently in your closet. Grab yourself some charity bags, a toss-it box, and be prepared to try on a lot of items of clothing. You should:
- Fully empty your closet
- Clean the inside
- Sort through your belongings and decide what you are going to keep, bin, or donate. Get rid of anything you haven’t used in 12 months, doesn’t fit, or is damaged beyond repair.
- Then organise your closet and put your items back.
What Do You Need?

What to include in your kit:
- Donation boxes and bags.
- A full-length mirror for checking that your clothes still fit and make you feel good.
- A small basket for any loose bits and bobs you find in bags and pockets such as recipes, paper, hair clips, and loose change.
- A plan for extra storage if you need it.
