Organizing For Fall




Happy October 1st!!!
Is there anything better than the first of the month falling on a Sunday so you can totally prep for not only a new month, but a new season as well??
Don't mind the pictures of my closet but I really wanted to show you a real example of how I organize my closet so hopefully it can inspire or help you with your own! Maybe one day I'll have one of those cute walk-in closets but until then this is my reality.

I'm so excited that October is finally here and I am back living in Reno where you can actually feel ALL four seasons. There is a chill in the air, the leaves are orange and yellow, and Starbucks is serving their famous Pumpkin Spice Lattes.

Anyway.... here are a few tips on how to organize your closet for when the colder weather starts to kick in.

1.) Organize your clothes by type
Most of my clothes are hanging so I like to keep the same type of shirts or blouses together so they are easy to find and I don't get overwhelmed when searching for an outfit. Figuring out what to wear is already hard enough, might as well have a cleaner closet to make the process a little easier. I put all casual t-shirts together, work/blouses together, casual long sleeve shirts together, any sort of cardigan or open sweaters together, and all plaid and button up shirts together just to name a few of the different categories I organize by.

2.) Put away summer clothes
Mostly likely as Fall and Winter approaches you won't be reaching for your shorts and tank tops. To make more room in your closet for jackets and bulky sweaters, I suggest pulling out all your summer clothes and folding them and putting them away in a separate dresser drawer. **Tip: While you are pulling out your summer wardrobe, fell free to toss aside the clothes you didn't even touch this summer and put them in their own pile to donate. If you didn't touch them this year, doubtful you will reach for them a year from now.

3.) Pack away the flip flops and sandals
Same goes for shoes! Bring forward your boots, booties and tennis shoes and push those flip flops to the back of your closet. It's helpful to tuck away your summer shoes so they don't get in the way or what you'll actually be wearing.

4.) Don't be afraid to install your own storage
When my husband and I moved into our apartment we noticed right away that both our closets and our linen closet didn't have any shelving. I bought these hanging shelves from Amazon and they worked out perfectly. If you're finding it hard to have all the room you need in your closet, these shelves can give you extra space for clothes  I organize mine by skirts, shorts, workout sweaters, leggings and jeans.

Hope these quick and easy tips help you with your own organizing. Have a great week!

  1. I love hanging shelves. When we moved into our apartment, we bought several as well. I need to get a start on organizing my closet for fall too.
