Organizing Your Closet (part 2)

How organize is your closet? People have a great many misconceptions about the nature of organizing. This may be the result of inexperience or lack of knowledge. Every possible excuse has been given for delaying organizing your closets. However, it's clearly in your own best interests to learn all there is to know about the organizing process; there are obvious and tangible rewards as well as underlying and subtle advantages.

Here is the continuation of my post about myths and facts about organizing your closet.

"I must have too many clothes and not enough closet space because I waste time every day trying to find what I'm looking for. I spend far too much money on my wardrobe and my dry-cleaning bill is exorbitant, but every day I have to iron my outfit because it's so wrinkled when I take it out of the closet. I just don't have the time to do anything about it."

Organizing arranges clothing evenly along the clothes rod, eliminating the crowded, crammed conditions that cause wrinkles. Organizing positions clothes and accessories for instant visibility and accessibility.

Once you can see the clothes you own, future purchases will probably be more effective. You're more likely to buy a piece that blends with your existing wardrobe rather than buying a whole new outfit. That bargain buy won't seem like a bargain when you realize you already own three similar articles. Organizing shows the same old clothes in a new light, increasing versatility and wearability It also saves time. There will be no more needless trips to the cleaners and the ironing board, no more standing in front of the closet trying to remember what was supposed to go to the cleaners, no more relentless searching of the closet and the dresser drawer for the desired item.

"It's easier to buy another one of what I need than to spend half the day searching for the one that is out in the garage somewhere."

Repeatedly purchasing the same items and products is a common occurrence when you're disorganized. It is an admission of defeat, since you've allowed the clutter to control you rather than taking control of the clutter. Repeated purchases also perpetuate the original problem of too much clutter.

Organizing systematically and methodically assigns a specific place for everything. You then know exactly and precisely where everything is: It will be easy to find a given item, and you'll put it away in the same place.

After those days of moving out, I can now easily organize my closet. The clothes are folded neatly inside a transparent plastic ware with names on it.
