How do you organize your bedroom’s closet? Better question… are you actually organizing it at all?

If your method of organization is a pile of shoes on the floor or a poorly-sized organization bin for your sweaters, you probably aren’t making the best use of your closet space. 

Guess what? You don’t have to break the bank to get started. Today we are sharing 3 ways you can maximize your closet space with a few low-cost organizational tools.

1. Categorizing and color coding are your friends.

A place for everything and everything in its place… that includes your closet! If you don’t have a system for where your shirts, jackets, shoes, etc. will go, your items will likely be scattered throughout your closet and you won’t be able to find what you need when you need it. 

Start by hanging like with like – all the shirts together, the dresses, the pants together and so on. Now take it a step further and color code the items. The color wheel of ROYGBIV is a good place to start with white at one end and brown and black at the other end. Last but not least, categorize within the colors by sleeve length, skirt length, and pant length. 

In creating this system, you are now able to see what you actually own. 

And of course if there is something or many things that you no longer want, need or fit, let go of those altogether.  

To help with the organization try these hangers. They are thinner which creates a bit more space and they keep clothes from sliding off plastic hangers.

2. Organize all your accessories, even your purses!

Let’s talk purses and wallets! Are all of your purses and accessories in one place, or are they scattered? I’m going to guess that they’re probably disorganized, and they’re probably taking up *way* too much space.

Take inventory of your bags (maybe you have 2, maybe you have 20!). Keep track of how many you have in each size range, and determine the best possible way to organize them in your space.

I am all for a good organizational tool, so I have compiled a few of my favorite Purse Organizers below. They come in both small and large sizes, and are a perfect & visible way to display your purses in your closet.

3. Create a wall on the shelves.

When stacking items on shelves they usually have a tendency to fall over which is very frustrating. Not to mention it creates a very cluttered look. With these shelf dividers you are in essence creating a wall to keep the items in place. They work great with anything folded such as sweatshirts, sweatpants, jeans, sweaters, etc.
