How To Tidy Up a Closet in 15 Minutes

Oct 20, 2019

Keeping your closet organized can feel like a never-ending chore, but not to worry! Organizing pro and founder of The Virtual Closet Makeover, Shira Gill, is here to help us tame the chaos. Steal her 15 minute tips and transform even the smallest space into a streamlined storage solution that will make finding your stuff (and getting dressed in the morning!) a total breeze.

Contain The Chaos

Closets can be a magnet for clutter and if you’re guilty of stashing random household items here, you’re in good company. Luckily, it takes mere minutes to put these items back where they belong. (Art, diplomas, coffee mugs, kid’s toys, I’m lookin’ at you.)

Stow The Seasonal

Seasonal items such as heavy duvets, winter coats, and bulky sweaters take up precious closet real estate during warmer months. Create space by storing them in Canvas Storage Bags, which protect your items from dust and can be easily tucked under your bed or stored on a shelf.

Give Your Clothes a Refresh

Do you have lightly worn clothes draped over a chair, thrown over a hamper, or shoved in the back of your closet? Give these “half-worn” items a quick refresh by shaking them out and hanging them on a hook or hanger. You can also quickly freshen them (without running a full load of laundry) with a quick spritz of Fabric Fresh Classic. It has antibacterial properties that remove odor between washes.

Make It Uniform

Give your random assortment of storage some order with labeled, uniform storage bins made from natural materials. These cotton and canvas Storage Cubes have a label window, making it easy to locate belts, scarves, and other accessories in seconds.

Ditch The Excess Hangers

Want to know the quickest, easiest way to make space in your closet? Pull out unoccupied hangers and toss them in a tote or labeled bin in the back of your closet until you need them. And now for my favorite tip: To make your closet look like a well-curated boutique, pick one style and color of hanger for your entire wardrobe. It’ll look instantly tidier.

The Quick Clean

Closets can collect a lot of dust, especially when items aren’t frequently worn. Spare yourself the deep clean and take a few minutes to wipe down your shelves with a formula that works on all surfaces, like the Surface Cleaner. It works on everything from finished wood to stainless steel to granite, meaning a couple less bottles under your sink. For kicking dust, the Duster For Small Spaces is perfect for getting to shoes, handbags, and hard to reach corners.

All done! Challenge yourself to this mini makeover, or start slow by trying one or two tips a week. I promise you’ll start to feel better about your space. Remember: A little progress is still progress, and sometimes it’s the little things that make the biggest difference!
