Closet Organizing 101
Start with One Closet
Pick one specific closet as a starting point: Consider the ways in which the closet is currently letting you down, and set a goal for what you would like to accomplish in this area.
Measure To Fit
Use Every Space
One Closet at a Time
Remember you don’t have to revamp everything at once: This is a project you can tackle over time, spreading out the emotional and budgetary stress.
Do It Yourself
Depending on the size of the job and your skills, you may feel comfortable doing all or some of it yourself. Big box stores, storage specialty shops, catalogs and the web offer a huge spectrum of storage options.
Hire a Pro
Professional closet organizers will come to your home to talk over your needs, goals, and preferences. They will also take measurements, draw up plans, and make recommendations.
If you’re truly “stufficating” in possessions you can’t seem to part with, some closet-org pros are clutter coaches who can help you shed items from your stash.
