New Year, New You: Closet Organization Essentials
No more excuses! This is a New Year, and a New You! And YOU can finally get that closet organized. We're gonna do it in small steps, starting with the organization essentials. We're going to turn that tiny closet of yours into an oasis! Ok, maybe not an oasis, but a glamorous organized closet!
PS: If you're already the master of organization, send this to someone who needs a *subtle* hint. Enjoy!
The first tool in your organization kit is the essential hanger! I absolutely swear by velvet hangers, such as these Huggable Hangers. I love these because nothing, and I mean nothing, falls off of these. I've tried flimsy camisoles, boat neck shirts, and heavy jackets on these velvet hangers and they all stay on. They save space in your closet too! Get ready to donate all of those old hangers, because you'll love these. I think I paid around $50 for 50 hangers. There are other brands that make these too and they often go on sale.
Next, you'll need a brand new mirror so you can preview outfits. Forget that $10 one who used in college. It's time for an upgrade! Remember we're trying to make that closet glamorous! The one I love is this 4-Way Mirror from Joy Mangano. (Edit: Just noticed all of the products I'm sharing today are made by her but were purchased by me over the years. I'm just obsessed with her stuff! But back to the mirror!) It reminds me of a dressing room mirror and shows your full-length. Finally, you can see what you look like at all angles. It fits right over the door--no tools needed--and easily folds in too. Mine was around $100, but other brands cost three times as much.
The last tool in your kit is for any of us who hate ironing, have a short attention span, or like to sleep in. May I present: The Steamer. In my closet I have the My Little Steamer. There are other sizes available, but I like the small model and use it for travel too. I comes in a bag and takes up so little room! Just add water and plug it in. Within 30 seconds, you'll be ready to steam those wrinkles away. I paid around $20 for mine, but there are different sizes/options that go up to $50. The steamer is quicker than ironing or using wrinkle release spray. And it's available in different colors. I own the lavender one pictured above.
Next week we'll tackle how to organize your closet/drawers!
