While the start of new year has long been considered the ultimate time for cleaning and de-cluttering, we don’t always treat it that way. The task, which by nature is not the most fun, often can’t compete with all the outdoor activities that begin to populate our social calendars as soon as the weather shows even the slightest signs of warming up. But now that we’re spending more time than ever spent within the confines of our homes, the hefty job of getting your closet in order is actually looking pretty appealing — especially if you’ve already had your fill of banana bread and adult puzzles for the week.
To help prime for you for a storage overhaul, we’ve rounded up some tips and tools to get kick things off. Even if your wardrobe is practically exploding at the seams with stuff, a solid and precise plan of attack is all you need to finally check this major item off your to-do list. From keeping your camisoles from turning into one big lump of lycra to optimizing overlooked space you didn’t even know you had, we’ve put together suggestions for getting (and staying) organized. So take a deep breath, step away from the computer (after finishing this story), and get ready to neaten up all that closet overflow. And before you know it, you’ll be back to whatever quarantine hobby-du-jour is keeping you busy at the moment.
