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

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!
