When you can’t find what to wear due the lack of space…
Getting dressed can take a long time and feel overwhelming.
After moving from a 2000sq ft house to a 670sq ft condo, I had to rethink how I organize my wardrobe. Just because you don’t have a big closet, doesn’t mean you can’t find a better way to manage it.
What if I told you that by investing in smart storage solutions you could double your existing space that will make the closet look like your favorite store? Let’s get to work! Here are 4 steps to a spacious closet:
1. BUY SKINNY HANGERS
Yep, you read that right. Instead of using heavy wood hangers (which take up a lot of room), choose these light velvet hangers. They multiply your hanging space and make the closet be oh, soooo fancy!

2. GET STACKABLE SHELVES
A must for women with small spaces since each shelf can be stacked underneath or above the clothing rod (I got several of them in my closet). Wonderful to display your t-shirts, jeans, sweaters and shoes.

3. HANG THE JEWELRY
Do you keep your jewelry in the original boxes? Out of sight, out of mind! The truth is… if you don’t see what you have, you forget to wear it. This two-sided organizer will simplify your life: it comes with 32 clear pockets and 18 hooks. A clever space saving tool that can help you visualize all the bling. Now accessorizing your outfits will be a breeze (Woohoo!)

4. USE DECORATIVE BINS
What makes a closet be out of control? Unmanaged clutter! Did you know messy spaces have a negative impact on your psyche? Yes, they do woman. Baskets that are stylish instantly freshen up your dressing room and hide things you rarely wear (Halloween costumes, seasonal clothes, bathing suits, hats). They reduce visual clutter and keep your closet neat. Best of all, they promote harmony and inner peace (Ommm…)
