MASTER THE CLOSET
Best friends Clea Shearer and
Joanna Teplin of
thehomeedit.com use these strategies when organizing closets.
1 STACK YOUR SHOES
To maximize shelf space (as in, hold more shoes), use acrylic shoeboxes. They also help eliminate scuffs and dust.
2 BRING ON THE BASKETS
If your closet doesn’t have drawers, use lined baskets for shorts, workout clothes, pj’s, T-shirts, socks, and underwear.
3 SWAP WITH THE SEASONS
Separate clothes by season into bins. Place one on a high shelf, one in reach. Rotate them as the weather changes.
4 ABIDE BY THE ONEYEAR RULE
If you haven’t worn something in the past year, there’s a good chance you never will. Donate it or give it away.
