Three Tips for Falling Back in Love with your Closet

Has your 'relationship' with your closet deteriorated over time? Perhaps once perfectly organized by color with ample space to spare, is your closet now jumbled, overfilled and unorganized?
This Valentine's Day, rekindle your relationship with your closet.  Here are 3 tips to help you fall back in love with your closet and keep the spark alive.

Tip #1:  Declutter
Every closet (and relationship) has its limits.  You simply cannot keep adding clothes every season with out clearing it out on occasion.  Every 6 months, go through your closet and clean out items you no longer use.  If you can't bear to part with them yet, box them up and revisit them in 6 months when it's time to declutter again.  If you haven't missed it, chances are you don't need it.

Tip #2: Accessorize
Sometimes all you need to rekindle a relationship is a little change to spice things up.  Adding an accessory or two to your closet can make your closet feel new and interesting again.  There are many great closet accessories available that are designed to maximize the storage potential of your closet.  Pull out belt and tie organizers, pull down closet rods and pant organizers are just the beginning. 

Tip #3:  Know When to Call it Quits
Although it is hard to face, sometimes you have to know when it is time to call it quits.  Your closet simply might not be able to meet your needs in its present state.  If this is the case, it is probably time to consider a closet organization makeover.   A custom closet organization system can truly transform your closet space into something with far more storage potential.  Even in the case of a small closet, you have many options.  A closet organization
professional can help you determine your goals and the best design to meet these goals.
