Welcome back to the Capital City Real Estate Group video blog! I’m Marc Iafrate, Broker-in-Charge of the Capital City Real Estate Group here in Raleigh. Today we are going to discuss How to Organize Your Closet Spaces Without Breaking the Bank

There is a certain satisfaction in having a well-organized closet – not to mention that it’s a space and time-saver on busy mornings! And the best part is that you don’t need to spend tons of money to get a well-organized closet space. A lot of the work is just thinking outside the box.

Plan The Closet First

Before you do anything, sit down and plan out your closet. Measure it so you know the exact dimensions so if you need to add a rod or drawers, you’ll know what size fits. Clear out your closet to get a better idea of its contents and space, then plan out what you want it to store. Having a clear idea of how you want to organize the space will prevent impulse purchases and mutiple organizational strategies.

Optimize The Contents

Your closet is essentially a functional space, so treat it that way. Think about what you want to have easy access to, and what can be rotated into storage. Bulky winter coats, for example, can be stored elsewhere until winter arrives. Once your closet is pared down, look for items that you can donate – think about anything you haven’t worn in a year or more.

Optimize The Space

Even if you have a small closet, it can be a great space. Optimize what you have by using the walls and the door for hanging storage, and by stacking items. Wire shelving is inexpensive and easy to install, and is great for seeing at a glance what you have. A movable closet rod for hangers can be hung up high for more storage, and pulled down for easy access. And what about the double-hanger trick – hooking one item’s hanger off another’s? This way you can pair items that go together to save both time and space. More space saving tips – Use shower rings on hangers to store scarves and hang baskets under shelves to maximize space.

Organize The Space

Experts say that organizing items by color is not the most efficient method – instead, group items by activity or function. Pants are with pants, dresses with dresses. Use labels to make access and maintenance easy. Put the most frequently used items in the center and at eye-level, and make sure drawers are slightly below eye-level for sorting through the items easily. Finally, think creatively: use hanging shoe bags for other items, hang jewelry off of hooks, store entire sheet sets in their pillowcases.

About Capital City Real Estate Group, Inc.

Moving to North Carolina years ago was the best decision my family and I could have made. We were looking for a change from the cold Michigan winters and the volatile economic climate. The Triangle was the perfect choice with its mild winters, quality of life and diverse economic base. I have always held as my personal values and guiding principles: Professionalism, Integrity, Dependability and understand the meaning of perseverance! I began my real estate career in 1996 as a commercial investor. This led to a Director of Property Management position for multi-family and commercial property and now, residential real estate as the Broker/Owner of the Capital City Real Estate Group, Inc. here in Raleigh. I put myself through the evening MBA program at the University of Michigan while working full time and raising a family. Prior to real estate, I earned a Master of Science in Engineering from U of M and currently hold 2 U.S. Design Patents and had a successful corporate career in the automotive industry. As a result of that experience, I've successfully been able to apply my problem solving ability to business. Community Involvement Wake Forest Downtown, Inc.
