While the start of the new year has long been considered a great time to begin thinking about cleaning and de-cluttering your space, 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 fun winter activities that begin to populate our social calendars once the temperature drops below 30 (eh-hem apres ski anyone?). But since it's January, it is a good time to take on the hefty job of getting your closet in order.
To help prime you for a storage overhaul, we’ve rounded up some tips and tools to 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 with the best closet organizers you can find. And before you know it, you’ll be back to your hobby-du-jour.
