Does a streamlined closet sound overwhelming? No problem. Just take it step by step. Here's how.
To get the most out of your closet and your clothes, rotate your clothes seasonally and give the closet a good cleaning.
Most people (unless they live in Miami) have a summer wardrobe and a winter wardrobe - even if the word "wardrobe" sounds a bit fancy for the clothing in their closets.
To maximize closet space, and your clothes' lifespan, tuck the winter clothes in for a good summer's rest. Read the full story to learn how to streamline your closet.
It seems as if most homes aren't built with enough places to hold our growing piles of belongings.
If you've ever sat down to pay bills at a cluttered desk or frantically searched for a suit in a bulging closet, you know how frustrating it can be to have too little space for the things we use.
Because even if we could snap our fingers and make another closet appear, more space wouldn't be the answer.
Without a system to organize our things, even the largest home would fill up over time.
By finding ways to keep clutter in check, you'll free up more time and space to enjoy the things you have.
