And without any further ado, the main purpose of this article.

What does your wardrobe say about you?

Your messy closet points towards an emotional problem that you might not even be aware of. It could mean that you are still holding onto the past where you felt anything was possible. If you are struggling to clear your closet, it might be more because of the nostalgic value these clothes have rather than your desire to wear them again.


The solution:


1. Declutter, donate and sell

Well, for some people, most of the items of clothing in your closet are of no use. It's either you don't fit into them anymore, they are last season, you haven't worn them in over 5-6 months or they just don't suite your style anymore.

Whatever the case, the first step is to get rid of clothing items you clearly don't need anymore.

You can sell them as pre-loved clothes, give them up for donations or recycle them into something useful.


2. Sort them by category

This is the second step. Now that you have gotten rid of the stuff you do not really need, it is time to sort out through everything else that you have left.

What do we mean by sort through them? Group like items together. Pyjamas on one side, sweat suits together, skirts, cardigans etc.


3. Now we packing, stacking, rolling and hanging...


• HANGING

Hang delicate items such shirts, lingerie and skirts.

Also hang the fancy and sturdy pieces of clothing such as blazers, suits and coats.Hang everything facing the same direction, with longer items on the left and shorter items on the right so the bottom of your clothes creates an upward sloping line.


• STACKING

The thick items in your closet, i.e sweaters, and denim pieces, neatly folded and stack them. This way, they are easily saturated, and quite frankly, easy to find.

• ROLLING

This is the step wherein all those storage boxes come in handy. We've hung all the delicate pieces, folded and stacked the thick ones. Now it's time to roll you t-shirts, shorts, leggings, etc.

Roll them into tiny tubes and tuck them into your storage boxes or drawers.


4. Drawer dividers may be a good investment.

Ideal for undergarments, socks, tights, etc.

I think this step goes without saying. For convenience purposes I will attach a picture.

See,this is much neater, making your tiny bits easier to find.


5. Minimze future accumulation of a mess, the most important step.

Make sure that you pack your frequently worn clothes at eye-level. Where they are very easy to access. And those that you scarcely wear, pack them on the lower and top shelves to avoid turning your wardrobe into a mess, again!


6. One-in-one-out rule.

To avoid ending up with extended heaps of unworn, and outdated pieces of clothing, everytime you buy something new and fresh, get rid of the old and outdated. See! Problem solved!


Maintaining a clean closet is not the easiest thing to do, but with the above steps, it can be so much better. Good luck!
