Tips and Tricks for an Organized Closet

I spent Sunday afternoon organizing my husband’s closet.  I found this awesome closet organizer at Walmart that helped motivate me.  What I love most about it is that it’s portable so when we move, we can take it with us.

After spending the day organizing, I thought it would be fun to share a few closet organizing tips and tricks that will make your life so much easier.

1.  I’ve seen this on Pinterest a lot and finally decided to do it.  Let’s see how many things I never wear.  I have a feeling it’s a lot.

2.  I love these ideas for No-Slip Hangers.  But first, I need to invest in all new hangers.  Mine are all mismatched and old.

3.  Use a wooden dowel or PVC piping and some string to create a double clothes rack.  Alex you’re brilliant!

5.  I love this idea especially the idea of using drapery rings to hang hats and gloves.

6.  Use pool noodles to keep your boots from falling over.  Not only does this help your closet look neater but it will keep your boots from flopping over.

7.  Tension rods to the rescue!  How awesome is this?  Use them to hold all your shoes.  I definitely need to do this ASAP!!

8.  Use the back of closet doors.  I have a few shoe organizers on the back of doors but I think I might like this idea better.  This would be perfect in Connor’s bedroom.

9.  Use every inch of your closet.  Last summer I took out the one long rod from my closet and placed two rods on one side and one on the other side.  This allowed me to use all that empty space in my closet and gave me so much more room.  I then placed a dresser and shelves in my closet.  I was worried that I wouldn’t have enough space to hang my clothes but I actually had room for more clothes.

10.  Add extra shelves to the empty space in your closet.  This might be a little time consuming but so worth the effort.  I love the idea of adding an extra shelf to the top of the closet.  I need to do this in my closet.

  1. Kara, I love the pool noodles! Everything here is so practical.
    Pinned a few times!
    Do you know I lost track of you? I used to see your posts regularly through Google readers and now that they’ve discontinued it’s growth, I dropped off. Just found this “accidentally” and so glad I did!

    Please stop by my blog, Ducks ‘n a Row, today to share this post!!! My readers will love it.

  2. Great tips for closet organization! I love the pool noodles in the boots. Thanks so much 🙂

  3. great tips and so inspiring. I need to try the pool noodles (because i love to collecting boots) and drapery rings on the back of doors (because i have much hijab)

  4. I really like the idea of no-slip hangers. I couldn’t say how many times I’ve had clothes fall off the hangar. It usually happens at the worst times, too, such as just before you are about to wear the now wrinkled and dirty clothing item. I’ve even had this happen to my suits, which is usually quite frustrating, since suits have to be taken to the dry cleaners instead of simply thrown in the wash.

  5. Hi, I like your idea about the scarf rod on the door. However, I found that a pressure rod across the back of the closet allows easy access to scarves without blocking the door or the possibility of a scarf getting caught when the door gets closed. Kitcjie
