Closet Problems & Solutions
A Cozy Lifestyle with Clearissa Coward
A messy closet is a problem a lot of people have, including me, and they aren’t sure how to fix it. This is especially true when a closet is serving double and sometimes triple duty. I have one closet that has some of my clothes, my thrifted stash, luggage, and other stuff too. Just a lot going on in that one space. My clothes are organized, but the other stuff leaves a lot to ve desired. The messiness can come in many different forms but the root cause is most likely a lack of organization. Let’s get on with closet problems and solutions that may inspire you and me both.

If you start out organized it is much easier to stay that way. Here are a few common closet problems and some solutions that can be implemented at any time. I am going to implement the following solutions when I get to my problem closet. Which will be soo…stay tuned. But for now, let’s get on with closet problems and solutions that may inspire you as well.
- Are your hangers a tangled mess or do your clothes constantly slip off? Sounds like you have wire hangers hanging in your closet. To prevent tops from slipping off and falling to the floor or the dreaded hanger crease in the middle of your pant leg, invest in some wooden or plastic hangers. Not only are they functional, but they are also more attractive to have a uniform type of hanger in your closet (all wire hangers do not count). I have chosen the velvet hangars in black and I love them.
2. This is a total option, but I like to arrange my clothes by type and by color. Long sleeve blouses together, all short sleeve blouses together and then by color. All white long sleeve blouses and all-white short sleeve blouses, etc. This works well for me.
3. If you are consistently looking for a mate to the pair of shoes you want to wear you need to put a system in place to organize your shoes. There are many options for shoe organizing, you can purchase a hanging canvas shoe rack that goes on your hanging bar, a shoe tree, or install some shelving in the bottom part of your closet. This is a quick and easy job, something that can be accomplished in under 2 hours (set-up and organization).
4. Chances are there are many things you can remove from the closet that doesn’t belong. Put your spare blankets in a linen closet or under the bed, and take the clothes you have been meaning to drop off at the donation bin out to the car so you won’t forget to do it another day (make sure you have someplace to store them until social distancing is over). Find the proper home for whatever else is living in your closet that should not be.
These are easy and quick steps to get you started. Once you get this done, then you can begin to make your closet pretty. Adding a focal wall, painting, adding a chandelier, shelving, etc. The possibilities are endless. 🙂
