Day 18 – How to Organize the Closets Video

Today we are taking on the chaos that you call your closets.

We are going to go through all of your other non-clothes closets. Linen closets, storage closets, junk closets. Whatever name you have given them, we are cleaning them.

Same routine.  Take everything out. Everything. Do not leave anything in the closet. We want to give it a fresh start. Once the stuff is out we need to wipe down all the shelves and clean or vacuum the floor.

Sort through your things. Do you really need to save grandpa’s entire 112-piece lighter collection? Why not keep your five favorite ones and sell the rest online? It is not disrespectful. Your grandfather enjoyed his collection and would want to pass on that joy to another collector.

Other items that you want to save, like a wedding dress or antique photographs should be stored properly in acid-free containers in order to preserve them for future generations. You can buy these containers at specialty storage shops or online.

Pay attention to “how” you store each item. Textiles (fabrics) should not be folded as it can cause undue stress on the fabric at the fold that will eventually result in a tear. The best method is to roll the items. If you can’t, many experts suggest re-folding in a different way every few months.

Replace the items that you are determined to keep in the proper containers, nicely labeled and neatly on the shelves.
