A Clutter Free 2018 Part 2 – The Bedroom

Since the weather is crummy and we have to stay inside, it’s a great time to re-organize and provide peace and harmony in your living spaces. As your expert professional organizer and move manager in the Indianapolis, IN area our team have some great organizing ideas.

-Organize your dresser drawers. The sock drawer. In part 1 I mentioned save longer lids from plastic containers. Use the lids to separate trouser socks from athletic socks. Do the same for you’re under wear drawer. If you don’t have lids, frugal method, use legal or letter size manila folders to separate garments. Or find drawer dividers at the container store.

-Unmatched shoes and socks discard.

-Have a system for soiled clothing. Basket in the closet or a closed top hamper in the bathroom.

-Go through your closet and change of seasonal clothes. Anything you haven’t worn in 2 years or more is a donation. If you’re a weight gainer or loser save only a couple of pieces of clothing to help you maintain your weight.

-Use the vertical space in your closet to maximize space. At your local hardware store pick up a couple of hangers that have short hooks facing up about 12” long. Nail that hanger to a short wall and hang necklaces, belts, ties and/ or lighter weight handbags. When you can visually see your items you will wear them more often.

-Use over the door hangers to hang long scarves and shawls.

-Buy a shoe rack that is narrow, high and sturdy to organize your shoes off the floor so you can visually see them.

-Make your bed before you leave the house because when you come home your place of rest is neat, tidy and will give you peace.

-The thin micro suede hangers are terrific, They hold your clothes on the hanger, keep its shape, and take less space in the closet compared to wood, wire, or plastic hangers. Donate big wooden hangers to high school band departments.

-Add light to your closet if it is dark. A brighter bulb or add a battery powered stick on the wall lamp.
