To help your children stay organized and reduce clutter in their closets, provide a canvas bag for clothing they have outgrown. Instruct the child to use the bag. Otherwise, these items end up on the floor, or take up precious space. In no time, you’ll have items to donate.
If you have older school-aged children, you can create a plan and work together to clean out and organize their closets. Remember to create piles to keep, to donate and to repair. From there, you can create a list of what each child will need.
Don’t let your small closet keep you from staying organized. Wire rack shelves are great, inexpensive ways to keep your closets in check. Simply attach them to the wall inside your closets, and put your sweaters, shoes, or T-shirts on them. This will help you maximize closet space.
If you are storing suitcases in your bedroom closet, don’t let that space go to waste. Consider storing clothing items in them. Whether they’re things you wear a lot, or they’re pieces you wear on occasion, using your suitcase to store clothing or accessories in small spaces is a great idea!
While this sounds like it might not actually help make more room in your small closet, keeping your clothes color coordinated will make it easier to plan your outfits and see what you have. This also prevents you from buying new clothes you don’t need, which then prevents your closet from becoming too cluttered! See what we did there?
