Closet Organizing Mistakes

Austin Apartment Specialists Card

Is your closet constantly disorganized?  You may be making one of Apartment Therapy's closet organization mistakes.

If you are trying to cram in more things than will ever fit in your closet, it's time to take a step back and decide whether you really need all those clothes, shoes and accessories.  By regularly going through your clothes and donating what you don't wear as often, you'll make room for the belongings you love.

If you're not switching out your wardrobe each season, chances are your closet is a mess.  Either pack up your out-of-season clothes and put them somewhere else, or rotate them to the back of your closet to make room for the clothes you are wearing currently.

Make sure you're using every square inch of storage space, from the back of the door to the tippy top of the closet.  Using hooks or over-the-door shoe organizers, and shelves high up will maximize your storage.

If you don't organize each type of object you keep in your closet, it's likely to become a mess.  Make sure you have dedicated types of storage for each thing (scarves, bags, shoes, etc.) so you can keep them neat.

The things you use or wear on a daily basis should be the easiest to get to in your closet so you aren't pulling things out and making a mess trying to get to those daily items.  Finally, once you're done wearing something, put it back up!  The biggest mess can come when you just throw your clothes or accessories on the closet floor.
