Purge and Declutter

To be able to free up valuable space in your closet, consider going through your belongings and getting rid of items you no longer use or need. Do a thorough cleanout, pile your wardrobe and categorize which goes to charity, to sell, and to discard. 

If you have not worn your clothes for too long, you might no longer need it. If it looks damaged or doesn’t fit you properly, let it go. Consider selling recyclable items online or you may organize a yard sale. Finally, focus on organizing the items you have decided to keep. Before placing them back in the closet, take the opportunity to clean the space thoroughly. 

Use Slim Hangers

Bulky hangers can take up a big amount of space in your closet that may limit the number of clothes you can hang. By replacing them with slim hangers, it is thinner and more streamlined, which means they occupy less horizontal space. You can maximize the available space on your hanging rod and double or triple the number of garments you can hang.  It also makes your closet help enhance the overall aesthetics of your closet.

Rectangular or square-shaped containers are often more space-efficient as they can be easily stacked or placed side by side, minimizing wasted space. Additionally, choose containers with lids to protect the contents from dust and maintain a cleaner closet environment.
