MASTER THE CLOSET

Better Homes & Gardens - - Food -

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.
