Organizing Tip #13

• 17 June 2008

Replace all your random plastic and metal hangers with wood hangers for a unified look in your closet.

And while you're at it, get rid of some unworn, no-longer wanted/needed clothing too!

Last year I rid my closet of all its metal and plastic hangers and replaced them with wooden hangers. I couldn't believe the effect. This small change increased my motivation to continue on with the closet and I added a few shoe organizers too. It's still no California Closet to be sure, but I'm frequently surprised at how tidy {and stylish} everything looks when hung on these pretty hangers.

You used to be able to purchase both skirt and shirt wooden hangers at the Nordstrom Rack, but in the past few months I've only seen shirt hangers there. I'm hoping that will change since I need a few more myself. You can also find wooden hangers at IKEA, but again, just the shirt hangers. The price points at both places are within pennies of each other--about $3.50 for a package of 6.

#1 Make your bed each day
#2 Clean out your closet (take out everything not worn in past 12 months)
#3 Clear off kitchen counter tops (remove anything you don't use 2x weekly)
#4 Clean out your car
#5 Unclutter your mind--start writing thoughts down right away to relieve stress
Find ways to organize in one minute or less (purse, drawer, etc.)
Place a pretty dish on dresser tops and nightstands to collect jewelry, loose change, and pocket paraphernalia.
#8 Gather up recipes and clipped magazine pages and throw them all into one accessible binder for easy meal-organizing.
Sort mail immediately...preferably over the trash :)
#10 Clean out your car weekly
# 11 Do a 5-minute nightly sweep
Take just a few minutes to walk through your home with a garbage bag, gathering all the unused items you can.
