Tip 1: Invest in a Breakup Basket

Dedicate one storage basket in your closet to clothes you don't quite love—and utilize it daily! Putting things in your breakup basket helps you detach so you can eventually move on. It’s a painless way to edit your wardrobe and create a fabulously uncluttered closet.

If you're short on space or want a fully self-contained closet, consider using a built-in laundry hamper as a breakup basket. Closets of Tulsa has so many awesome hamper options, from single, double and triple hampers with soft close hardware to pullout wire baskets.

Here’s one of our hardworking hampers in action:

Tip 2: Store Winter Clothes Outside Your Shopping Zone

As you clear the way for spring and summer, lighten your load by relocating clothes, shoes and accessories you won't be wearing. Storing winter clothes is an easy step that makes a HUGE impact on your closet organization! Check out my post on how to store off-season clothing, and don’t forget the essential prep step:

Take action while you still remember what worked and what didn’t. Which outfits made you feel fantastic? What faded, stretched out or just didn’t fit? Only store clothes that have earned their place.

If space permits, use storage boxes on garage shelving to store off-season clothes. If your garage is overflowing, we can help with that, too!  Call Closets of Tulsa  today for your FREE consultation and 3-D closet and garage design:  918.609.0214

Tip 3: Sweat the Small Stuff—Organize Ties, Jewelry, Underwear...

... socks, T-shirts, handbags, pajamas, belts—you get the idea! The smallest parts of your wardrobe are often the most neglected. My post on cleaning out small accessories will help you declutter your closet and keep only what you really use. You'll feel lighter without all the excess, and you'll have easier access to the things you enjoy most.

Tip 4: Uncollecting is the New Collecting (Donate, Sell and Re-Home Your Stuff!)

Spring cleaning is prime time to let go of unneeded gifts, bad purchases and other excess. See my guide to uncollecting to make sense of why you buy stuff and why you keep it past its useful life. You’ll also learn my favorite ways to donate, sell and re-home your belongings.

Uncollect the excess so your closet holds only what you actually wear.  Call Closets of Tulsa  today for your FREE consultation and 3-D closet and garage design:  918.609.0214

Crown Molding

Custom base molding and crown molding make this closet organizer feel like it’s always been part of our client’s home. This clean, traditional look will never go out of style. In a custom closet, crown molding placement depends on your personal aesthetic and storage preferences. For example, some clients want open shelving at the top of the closet instead of crown molding all around. Closets of Tulsa plans your storage to the last detail so it fits you perfectly.
