How to Organize your Wardrobe on a Tight Budget?

You don’t have to blow a fortune on fancy closet organizing systems to organize your own wardrobe. Still, it does require taking a realistic look at your belongings and your habits. With some creativity and some planning, you can create a wardrobe that’s organized and easy to maintain.

First of all, it’s crucial that you take a look at what’s currently in your closet before you can begin to organize it. If there are clothes that haven’t been worn in six months or more, worn-out shoes, old handbags, and accessories that you no longer use, get rid of them. They are only taking up your valuable area. You’ll be pleasantly surprised just how much space you can free up by purging beforehand, and it also means less to contend with during the ordering process.


Next, take a look at what you’re left with. Try to organize your clothes based on what groups together well as outfits. Try to group like colors together, and organize shoes and accessories into the casual, sport, professional, and formal/dressy sections.

Now that you know what you’re left with, it’s time to place it back into your closet in a tidy and organized fashion. Look around your home for fresh baskets and bins. Consider installing a couple of extra shelves if the need warrants. Affordable shelving units and support can be found in more home organization sections of your favorite hardware or discount store.


You can also make great use of your space only by using lengths of chain to hang items on in your closet. You can purchase plastic or metal chain in different lengths depending on your desires. Links should be large enough to accommodate your style of hanger – whether metal or plastic. Hardware or do-it-yourself stores will cut the chain the length that you request. Attach the chain to your closet rod with a hook; these can also be found at the hardware or do-it-yourself store. Or you can simply loop the string over the hook of a sturdy coat hanger. Hang clothing items, one hanger per link. This simple, inexpensive method can help you store several articles in the space of just one.

With a little preparation, some creativity, and a free afternoon, your wardrobe will soon be organized, easy to use, and simple to maintain.
