To be honest with you guys, I sort of feel like a total hypocrite for writing this post. My closet is a MESS. This is probably because it is relatively small and I buy way too much stuff. So, unless someone wants to build me a walk-in closet, I need to take these closet organization tips for myself.
Personally, I don’t have trouble organizing the clothes in my closet – it’s everything else that gets in the way and makes things messy. Storing accessories like shoes, scarves, handbags, and belts while also keeping everything look neat and tidy is really hard. I have a shoe rack, but it’s definitely not big enough and my shoes really clutter things up down there. Ugh. I have a LOT of work to do on my closet.
But enough about me. I’m sure a lot of you have the same problem I do when it comes to keeping your closet looking amazing. That’s why I put together these 12 tips on how to organize your closet, all found from Pinterest (warning: searching for this will give you a serious case of closet envy). Check ’em out, and let’s all pledge to do some DIY projects this weekend!
First of all, remember these 5 rules. You can’t organize without getting rid of some stuff!
Use shower curtain hooks on your closet rod to hang your handbags. That way, they don’t get destroyed on the floor.
Hang your shoes on the wall instead of keeping them on the floor. If you have the extra room for this, it will free up a ton of space.
Recycle soda tabs so that you can hang up more stuff without taking up more space on the rod.
Buy rings so that all your scarves can go one hanger. It will be super easy to find the one you want and will free up space!
Make special hangers just for your flip-flops. I have a ton of flippies and they always get all over the floor. This is genius.
Make shelves with dividers at the top of your closet where you can put clothes that can be folded.
Hang a shoe rack on the inside of your door to free up space inside the closet.
Rearrange things so that you can have two rods instead of just one. You can instantly add space that way.

Hang racks on the walls or inside the door to hold small items like clutches so they don’t get lost.
Buy some of these items to keep things clean.
