With spring coming to an end, it’s time to do some spring cleaning before the hectic next couple of months of summer begin! There’s nothing better than starting a new season with a clean slate in your closet. When a closet is organized, it makes getting ready for school or events much easier and helps you know exactly what you already have and what you still need. Making sure your tween maintains this organized closet is the challenge, but keep reading below to learn our helpful and easy tips for organizing!
- Clean out and donate: Before tackling the organization of your tweens closet, sit down with them to go through their things to see if there are any clothes that they grew out of or no longer like. This will clear up a lot of space right off the bat! Create three piles for keep, donate, and trash to simplify the process.
- Tackling laundry: Using a laundry basket or hamper helps with messy dirty clothes that always seem to find themselves scattered across the floor. When searching for a hamper, find one that is easy to pull in and out of the closet - these are essential to promoting a clean room.
- Hanging clothes and accessories: One of our biggest pet peeves is when clothes fall off their hangers and onto the ground. Try investing in some nice clothes hangers, like velvet hangers, that keep the clothes securely on the hanger and off the floor. If you want to take it to the next level, consider color coordinating items or organizing by jeans, t-shirts, long sleeve shirts, and so on.
- Wall hooks for accessories: Try putting up command hooks in your tweens closet for hanging scarves, belts, bags, and anything else that can be hung. Hanging things on the wall means one less thing on the ground or taking up counter space.
- Shoe racks: Whether it’s a hanging rack that goes over the door or a rolling organizer for under the bed, these are life savers!
