CLOSET ORGANIZATION // It’s every girl’s dream to own a walk in closet, but there’s one downside. If you’re always on the go, you can relate with me. You try on outfits, sometimes they don’t work, and you just throw everything back into your closet. Even though the task of organizing can seem overwhelming when all you see is a jumbled pile of clothes, the benefits definitely outweigh the cons. Read on to find out how to polish up your closet.

As you’re sorting through your clothes, you want to find pieces that you’ve haven’t worn in a year, and pieces that don’t fit (a size too small or too big). These clothes that are sitting in your closet and wasting space are potential money makers. Simple solution: take these and list them on Vinted! Someone else may find a use for them, plus you’ll get money to shop for a new wardrobe. This is an easy way to freshen up your style.
For closet organization this is how I do it. I section off my closet by type of clothing, it’s easier to find what you’re looking for when you know exactly where it will be. I like to hang up as much as I can because if I don’t see it, chances are I won’t wear it.

Here are some pics of my closet. The top consists of dresses and the hanging shelves next to it hold my gym/house wear. I fold those up because I just grab whatever’s on top. The hanging shelves make use of that dead space and also give me room below to use. The shelf between the rails, hold my skirts and jeans. I like folding those as well because I hate clamping them with hangers. The bottom rail holds my tops which are in order of type. From left to right (tanks, short sleeved, long sleeved, cardigans, flannels, jackets). By doing this you can dress according to the weather without taking too long to soft through everything. On the other wall I hang up my outerwear, I placed them out of my way since I barely use them- it’s always sunny in California. To keep them neat, zip or button them up so they don’t fall off the hanger. To the right of my jackets I have a pop up drawer I used from college, and I organize smaller items there. To the right of that I have a metal shelf set up where I stack some of my shoes .
Another organization tip is to reuse shoeboxes to contain items like undergarments or swimsuits. You can place them next to each other on your shelves, or use them as drawer dividers. For bags and belts, install a row of hooks on an empty wall, it’s better to hang up your bags instead of having them all over the floor.

For work, it’s a requirement to wear business attire. To make things more efficient in the morning I bought a garment rack to hold all my appropriate clothes. It’s placed in my room outside of my closet, so when I get dressed, all I have to do is choose from here and I’m set. I got mine at Target for less than $20 (http://www.target.com/p/honey-can-do-expandable-garment-rack/-/A-11678118#prodSlot=_1_1) I love this one because the price is reasonable and the poles extend! Here I organize by type so it’s simple to pick out a top, bottom, or dress.
My closet is always changing. Recently I’ve taken a ton of stuff out and listed them on Vinted, so if you want to shop my style check out (http://www.vinted.com/members/1670349-archel) . And while I’m selling, I’m buying as well. For $50, these are all the items I scored on Vinted! ( + some that haven’t been delivered)
