How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love My Closets

Organization | Closets

Use it or lose it!

The first thing that each of us needs to do in connection with closet comfort is to examine all those
things that we know deep in our heart we will never wear again, such as:
• Anything with a stain that won’t ever come out, regardless of the claims of the products from
Amazing Discoveries.
• Anything with a hole that can’t be hidden or mended.
• Anything that looks swell on the rack but that you can’t stand on your body.
• Old shabby clothing or accessories that have sentimental value only.
• Clothing that has been just a shade tight – for the past five years.
• Shoes that are worn beyond repair – turned up toes, worn down to the max.
• Clothing that is noticeably lower in quality from the things you are buying now.
Go ahead, toss it, you’ll feel better!
Transcendental Organization –
A State of Mind Over Belongings
Now that you have the ultimate in closet organizing systems as designed, built and installed by The
Closet Works, just follow these simple laws of nature to assure the “organizers high” that comes to
all who neatly fold:
• Hang separates such as skirts, blouses and jackets in groups of similar items to help you
see more combinations.
• Don’t stack or hang items that shed like angora or mohair near ones that attract like
corduroy or velvet.
• Don’t hide things away in drawers that can be easily folded and displayed on open shelves.
• Don’t hang sweaters or knits, fold them to maintain their shape.
• Store special occasion shoes in labeled boxes on higher shelves. Use lower shelves for
everyday shoes.
• Fold scarves flat and place on the shelf between your double hang sections.
• Belts with large or awkward buckles that won’t fit on belt racks can be coiled and stored on
shelves.
• Store purses flat and loosely stuffed with tissues to retain their shape.
• To avoid snags, store hosiery in clear plastic bags or dedicated hosiery drawers
• Don’t squash too many items on a shelf or into a hanging area to avoid crushing or wrinkling.
• Don’t be hesitant to continually update your wardrobe by removing those items you rarely
worn or out of date as you add more items.
• Experiment! Move things around, try new ways to maximize your storage space while preserving
the condition of your belongings.
