Having extra storage space can be a blessing, but it can also be a curse. When you have a walk-in closet, you get more space for all of your clothes, shoes, and accessories. Unfortunately, closets tend to get messy; and the more space you have, the messier it can get. If this sounds familiar, continue reading to get tips on how to organize your walk-in closet on a budget.
Purge Your Closet
The first step to organizing your walk-in closet on a budget is to go through and purge what’s in your closet. Get rid of clothes that haven’t been worn in awhile or that are out of style. If there are items you would like to keep for sentimental reasons but don’t wear any-more, put it in storage instead of keeping it in your closet. Although you have a lot of space in your walk-in closet, you should only use it for items you wear regularly.
Totes, Totes, and More Totes
If you really want to keep your walk-in closet organized, then you need to invest in some storage totes. Fortunately, storage totes are reasonable priced, so you can pick up a couple to use while still staying on budget. You can then use the storage totes to store the out-of-season clothes and footwear that you use regularly. This will help eliminate clutter in your walk-in closet, keeping it nice and organized.
Hang Another Clothing Rod
If you’re really struggling with where to put some clothes in your closet, try hanging another clothing rod. You can position your rods so that the lower bar is used for longer clothes such as pants or dresses. Above that, you can hang another rod that has enough room for your shirts. This simple and inexpensive tip can work wonders in your closet.
