Sometimes I realize things and I want to share them. And I think, “This is really simple and it’s highly possible that 99% of humans already know it.” But then I think, “If I just realized it, there could be others out there who haven’t yet!” And THEN I think, “I need to get out more.”
So here’s today’s possibly-overly-obvious closet organization tip of the day:
When you hang clothing and replace it in your closet, it is likely to get a little bunched-up. At a certain point, you will have washed, hung, and replaced just about everything in there, and all that bunching will add up. If you haven’t bought anything new but your closet is suddenly packed to the gills, take everything out and put it back in a few pieces at a time. Fluff out sleeves and smooth garment bodies flat. The simple act of undoing the natural re-hanging-related bunching will free up LOADS of closet space. You’ll see.
Anyone making a regular practice of this already? (I only do it when things feel suddenly and weirdly overcrowded, but it helps a ton!)
