Winter is Coming! 4 Tips to Keep Your Outerwear Organized!
After a seemingly endless summer, the days are finally starting to grow shorter and the air more brisk as we transition into the colder months. Many of us are finding ourselves reaching for winter coats, that haven’t seen the light of day in many long months, to keep ourselves warm. Unfortunately, a lot of winter clothing is bulky and awkward, making it difficult to hang in our closets or entryways without making our space look messy or cluttered. From coats to boots to scarves to gloves, it can be quite a challenge to fit everything neatly in a tiny closet. But don’t worry; here at Tidy Spaces, we are masters of organization, and have a few tips and simple, affordable items to optimize your closet space to help you stay neat and organized all winter long!
Take your clothing hooks to the next level!
Simple clothing hooks are always useful in creating more space to hang coats and scarves. However, traditional clothing hookscan be limiting, as you can only hang up one or two items without them falling off. So elevate your traditional clothing hook, with a hanger rack. Hanger racks allow for more pieces to be hung up; you can use the pegs on top to drape scarves or coats, or use hangers to keep items from getting wrinkled. Installing the hanger rack on the inside of the closet door will create more space in the closet for storage. If you only have traditional hooks, install two rows of them to create more hanging space!
Putting shelves above or below your coat rack in the closet will allow for more storage space. You can use a top shelf for folding and storing scarves, hats, and gloves to keep them organized and out of the way. Shelves below your coats are a good space for keep shoes. This shelf comes with storage compartments, for even more places to organize your belongings!
Make storage baskets your new best friend!
Storage baskets are another great tool for closet organization. Place them on top of a shelf, for an excellent place to store extra winter clothes, purses and bags, and one on the floor in the corner of the closet for umbrellas!The great thing about storage baskets is that they are multifunctional and come in so many different styles and colors and fit in easily with your home decor. Buy an extra one for your living room to keep throw blankets for cozy winter nights at home!
Make keeping your closet organized a priority!
Regardless of how many organization products we buy, they won’t work if we don’t use them. When we come home after a long trek in the cold, it’s so easy to just throw our jackets and scarves on the couch or a chair and simply forget about them for the rest of the evening. This bad habit can clutter our home as we shed our bulky coats, scarves, hats, and gloves as we make our way inside. So prioritize the organization of your home by making sure to put everything in its designated place on your way in!
