There are so many things we LOVE about this closet. Let's start with those organized rose-colored jackets! There really is nothing like the right shade of delicious, saturated color. Follow her lead—store similar pieces together so it's easier to find "the one" and get on with your day.

Give Each Item a Place in Your Closet

On her upper closet shelves, this client keeps neat rows of colorful shoes and purses. This is a simple way to keep the floor clear and avoid piles of clutter. Giving each item a designated place in your closet also sets you up for consistency—you're far more likely to put it back time after time when you already know where it belongs.

A Month of Jane: Closet Storage Boxes

The Right Storage Boxes Can Improve Your Closet

To wrap up our Month of Jane—a series from my own closet—I'm sharing my favorite storage boxes and how I like to use them. 

Great storage boxes make all the difference in a closet system. They visually streamline your closet, keep clothes and accessories clean and neatly folded, and help minimize the clutter that so easily accumulates on closet shelving.

Storage boxes can also introduce a layer of texture, a pleasing color and a feeling of sophistication to bring you more enjoyment from your closet. 

My Favorite Closet Storage Boxes

I use several types of storage boxes in my closet. Here’s one of my favorites from TAG Hardware, available now at Closets of Tulsa. These upholstered storage boxes come in beach, pictured here, as well as graphite.

This next style has a pull tab and transparent panel. These boxes look beautiful and can be stacked, or used one at a time. I love that they keep everything in place and make my clothes, shoes and accessories feel like goodies in a boutique.

Storage boxes declutter your closet and serve many purposes: shoe organizer, purse display, off-season clothes storage.  Call Closets of Tulsa  today for a FREE consultation and 3-D closet design:  918.609.0214

Keeping Your Closet Tidy with Storage Boxes

Storage boxes can also help you limit the size of your wardrobe and maintain good tidying habits. On one side of my closet, I use storage boxes to organize shoes and and keep folded sweaters neatly stacked. They make it easy to see when my collection of cardigans or high heels becomes unwieldy and it's time to uncollect.

Using Storage Boxes to Display Purses

On the other side of my closet, I keep handbags in a storage box on my open shoe rack. Clutches, wallets and small purses get lost in the shuffle so easily, and I love having a special place to keep them safe. I also use these little gems more often when I can actually see them! 

Transparent front-opening storage boxes are a beautiful way to store small handbags and other items that would otherwise be difficult to keep organized.  Call Closets of Tulsa  today for a FREE consultation and 3-D closet design:  918.609.0214

Sweat the Small Stuff: Cutting the Clutter

If you've seasonally adjusted your wardrobe or done any uncollecting recently, you've probably turned a discriminating eye toward the primary pieces in your closet. But what about your small accessories? 

Year after year of closet clean-outs, seemingly innocuous items like belts, ties, jewelry, undergarments, hats and handbags manage to escape the chopping block. Massive T-shirt collections are built—innocently enough—one run, tournament and merch purchase at a time. Often stacked/crammed/rolled; rarely enjoyed. 

We tend not to get rid of these things—why?

Recently on the Closet Blog, we took a close look at (un)collecting: why we buy, why we keep things beyond their useful life, and why we hang onto unneeded gifts. Few items accumulate as easily as our small accessories! Instead of letting them go when we love them no more, we tend to stop seeing them. The result: Clutter! 

Undergarments are uniquely suited for needless collecting because they're often the perfect storm of expensive to replace, unsuitable to re-home and rarely seen by the general public.

Here's the catch: Like everything else in your closet, these items only bring you enjoyment when they're in use or
edited and organized.

Custom closet storage helps you organize and declutter shoes, ties, jewelry, handbags and other accessories.

Purging your ratty/dated/neglected small accessories will make you feel lighter, possibly bring in some extra cash, and allow you to shop your closet in a whole new way. 

For inspiration, here's another tip from the queen of serene, Marie Kondo, on how to fold and organize your underwear drawer.

Happy New Year!
