SPRUCE UP YOUR SPACE
Give your wardrobe a fresh start with these easy tips
1. Winter items are rarely used, so pack and arrange them on the top shelf in boxes. 2. Bulky items such as bags and boots, as well as less-worn items, should also be stowed in the overhead shelf. 3. Longer length items need a higher hanging space, so delegate a tall rack for your midi skirts, dresses and trousers. 4. Match your hangers, so it looks less cluttered and frantic. 5. Closet dehumidifiers eliminate odour and prolong fabric life. 6. Do not cram jackets and shirts together. Rather, hang them with a 1-cm gap in between to avoid creasing. And whatever you do, never hang more than one article of clothing on each hanger. 7. Display your shoes on sloped shelves, and don’t forget to air your shoes before putting them back into the closet. 8. Knits and sweaters should not be hung on hangers. Instead, fold them and store them neatly in a pile. 9. Mini storage shelves are a great investment to help keep your jewellery neatly stored. 10. Sunglasses, coiled belts and scarves should be kept in a shallow drawer, so you get a bird’s-eye view of everything you have. 11. Allocate this drawer for your pyjamas, underwear and socks, and use a drawer divider to keep them all separate. 12. Cloth tote bags can be placed in the bottom drawer, so they remain neat and uncrumpled.
