Whether you’re purchasing a new FreedomRail system or you just looking to improve your current closet functionality, here are some tips which will help!

 

#1 PURGE!

Yep, you’ve heard this one before but it bears repeating. We’ve shared a step-by-step closet organizing method in a previous post.  Go here for that info.  It’s essential to purge to really have your closet in tip-top shape!
A couple things I’d like to emphasize in the purging process

  1. Be sure to determine your “defining elements” before you purge…it will streamline the process and make purging SO much easier.
  2. If you don’t feel like a million bucks in something, DITCH it!  Life’s way too short to go walking around in something that makes you feel anything less than your best.

Sort clothes and create zones based on how your life works – work clothes, casual clothes, formal wear, workout wear, etc.

#2 Create Zones

This ensures that you just need to go to one section of your closet to quickly locate everything you need for that particular moment in time. Sort clothes and create zones based on how your life works – work clothes, casual clothes, formal wear, workout wear, etc.

It also helps you quickly determine all your options in a particular type of clothing very easily.

These can be particularly important if you have a small closet and a lot of clothes ?

 

 

 

#3 Use Skinny Hangers

Skinny hangers allow you a greater volume of clothing in the same amount of space.

BONUS…they lend a streamlined look to your closet since they all look the same!

Bulky clothes, like jeans and sweatshirts, typically hog up a lot of hanging space.

 

 

 

#4 Store Bulky Clothes in Hanging Collapsible Shelves

Consider rolling bulky items up and storing them in hanging collapsible shelves.

I really like the shoe rack hanging shelf for rolling up and storing jeans and sweatshirts…easy to see what you have and takes up just a sliver of space on the hanging bar.


 

#5 Maximize Wall Space

Whether you have a FreedomRail or a traditional closet set-up, there is often open wall space that is not fully utilized.

Install a towel bar or hooks to hang scarves, necklaces, ties, or bags.

If you’re hanging bags, you can hang them on shower hooks (those little hooks traditionally used for hanging a shower curtain onto the rod).
