A few weeks ago I shared on my Instagram how I was purging my closets and reorganizing them. I use three of the closets in my home and designate each one for specific types of clothing. I also color coordinate my clothes and that may sound like too much to some folks, but it helps me a lot when I’m getting dressed and it’s also very aesthetically pleasing and calming to look at which makes putting clothes away and hanging them up a better experience. Along with some tips, I’m also sharing my closet organization products today.

My Closet Organization Tips
Currently, I have all of my shoes in organizational boxes behind my clothes. I do have to scoop aside my clothes to grab a pair of shoes, but I don’t mind it all and prefer to just see clothes when looking at my closets, instead of boxes of shoes. I also separate my shoes by style. In one closet I have my heels on the bottom and my boots on top, in another closet I have my sneakers and in the other my sandals.
Besides the winter, when I’m traveling to cold weather (since we don’t really get any here in Miami), I keep my heavy sweaters in these space saver vacuum-sealed bags all year long. These bags get so thin, I can store them practically anywhere. Currently, they’re on the upper shelf of my closets.
My Closet Organization Products
I use hangers that are gentle on my clothes, like these felt hangers or these hangers with rubber clips. Even the very cool pants hangers I use have a silicone area on them that is soft on my jeans and pants and also prevents them from slipping.
For the miscellaneous accessory and such, I use these plastic storage bins and Target storage baskets. I even have the baskets underneath my main room’s nightstands as a catch all to keep everything organized.
Another closet organization product that I’ve found amazing and helps maximize being able to specify certain spaces on a closet shelf for particular things are these closet shelf dividers.
Lastly, I place these charcoal bags in my closets to purify the air in there. These are also great to put directly into sneakers to help with any odor.
