The Organization of the Closet Monster

Jun 29, 2008
One of the most dreaded places for one in their home is usually their closet. This room alone can send one running into the woods in a panic because of the mess that can usually be found in here. However, one good thing about a closet is the fact that the beast can be tamed with the right equipment. All one needs is a little time and patience and their closet monster can be put back into its cage as quickly as they came out to play.

One of the first things to organizing a closet is to get rid of the clutter. This can be as simple as cleaning off the floor or completely taking everything out and going through it, which is really the best way to get a good grip on the situation. How will you know what to get rid of? A good rule of thumb is that if it has not been used in one year, then you more than likely do not need it, and you can live without it. This is true for clothes, shoes and anything else that is cluttering up your space. You can feel free to either give away your clutter or sell it to help make a few extra bucks to pay for the materials that you will need in order to finish your project. Once the clutter has been cleaned up, you are ready to organize.

The first thing to think about when getting ready to buy items to organize is, what do you need? Is a wall mounted coat rack needed to hang hats and jackets on? Or are you going to need a place to store all of those shoes that you just cannot live without? These are tough questions that even the brightest of us all may not want to face when it comes to organization, but these must be dealt with if you are going to have a great looking closet.

After deciding what really should be organized, then you should head to your local home store. Places such as Bed Bath and Beyond and Linens and Things have numerous sections that are completely devoted to your organizational needs. No matter if you are looking for a few shelves to add to your closet or if you are looking to completely redo your area, these stores will have exactly what you need. You can also check out Wal-Mart, Target, and even the dollar stores for ways to organize your closet. They also have a great variety of items that can get you on the right track.

Being organized and having your closet straight will not only make you feel better, but it will give you the self confidence you need to start organizing other aspects of your life. Clutter is a demon that can slowly take you life over, and its effects can ripple through every aspect of your life. However, if you take control of the monster that is lurking all throughout your house, then you can begin to take back your life and love it once again.
