De-clutter clothes sifting through them by type

De-clutter clothes by category and start off fresh

Start with a clean and clear closet for a fresh slate. That means you de-junk and remove every single item in your closet so you can make room to arrange and sort out only necessary items. If you’re a minimalist, take note and keep the floors clear for an elevated, clutter-free environment.

A fast, easy way to declutter your clothes is to sift through them by type. Tossing every piece of clothing you own into a massive fabric mountain on your bed is overwhelming and inefficient.

Instead, separate your clothes into categories like:

Then sort through every item in a single category before moving on to the next.

Why is this method better?

It is way easier to compare similar clothes when they’re all grouped together in front of you, making it quicker to get rid of the things you know you have too much of, or don’t want.

As you go through your stuff, make a commitment to only keep the clothes you know you love and wear with frequency. If anything gives you reason to hesitate, toss it in a pile for donation.

Using matching hangers for clothes limits visual clutter

Use matching hangers

Nothing screams chaotic closet quite like a collection of wire and neon plastic hangers trying to peacefully coexist alongside one another.

So, limit the visual clutter and give your closet a sleek, streamlined look by using matching hangers for your clothes.

Just make sure you invest in hangers that actually work for what you have and steer clear of wooden hangers if you have lots of slippery silk blouses.

Organize your closet keeping like items together

Arrange and store clothes by category

This may seem obvious, but it makes all the difference when you want to locate your favorite pants in a flash.

First, keep like items with like items, store all your belts in the same spot, hang your delicate dresses alongside each other, and keep your workout gears separate from your pajamas.

Next, tuck clothes behind closed cabinet doors if the space is multipurpose. This makes your closet neat and keeps you organized most especially if your clothing rack is too small to contain all your clothes.

Finally, tuck bulky items like sweaters that you don’t want to accidentally stretch out on a hanger (bye, saggy shoulders). Roll the sweaters before stowing them away in your closet.

Whether you don’t even have a closet in your bedroom to begin with, a freestanding clothing rack will be a good solution. Besides, having it out in the open will force you to keep your clothes nice and organized instead of in an avalanche pile in the closet.

Also, when you arrange clothes by category, you will be able to easily identify different items and it gives room for light and colors to filter in.

Organize clothes by pairing similar colors

Color-code your wardrobe

Honestly, it’s true — organizing your clothes by color can be tedious, but the end result will make picking out an outfit so much easier, especially if you’re a visual person.

There will be no need to drive yourself crazy trying to remember the exact place you kept an item in your closet.

Color-code your closet in order of the colors in the rainbow (Tip: ROYGBIV; red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet).

Even creating the most general color distinction will change the outlook of your closet and make it totally fashion-worthy and easy to navigate.

Use empty wall spaces to creatively store accessories

Get creative with empty wall spaces

Got a few spare inches of wall space? Get creative and use this area to hang accessories like belts, jewelry, hats, or ties.

How do you hang everything?

You can use a towel bar or opt for a more personalized approach like a stylish wall rack.

Other cool ideas?

Put jewelry and fragrances on top your dresser and always leave room for flowers, they are both creative and decorative. Instead of hanging scarves, belts, and other accessories on hangers and taking up valuable rod space, attach a towel bar to unused wall space to create a personalized display for your collection.

That simple!
