Closets for Less has spent years helping people get better organized and adding beauty into their daily lives, and so we are big believers in any effort that helps people find better balance and efficiency throughout each day. It is estimated that the majority of people in the United States lose a minimum of one hour each day looking for a lost shoe, misplaced keys, or buried keys. That’s 365 hours a year, or 15 days each year lost to disorganization.
That’s why your local custom closet company in Birmingham is presenting four really clever ideas to help you get organized and improved your organizational pattern going forward.
Because of their standard size and relatively sturdy construction, shoeboxes make great little organizers. You can fold your shirts, roll your socks, or keep your undergarments stacked inside these little gems. Plus, shoeboxes are easy to find and very stackable.
Pool noodles are constructed from stiff, durable Styrofoam that’s also hollow, so these aquatic swimming aids also make amazing boot supports. Simply cut the noodles to fit inside your boots, and within a matter of seconds, you will be starting at an organized boot collection that anyone would be proud to own. In addition to keeping your boots upright and organized, pool noodles also allow for circulation, improving the “breathability” of your boots. If you hit the dollar store, don’t forget the pool noodles!
Now, this may not sound very clever, but professional organizers actually encourage their clients to add dividers in their closets that identify a wardrobe selection for each day of the week. Try it for a week or two and see if it will fit into your lifestyle. We think it’s a game changer!
That’s right, a simple length of PVC pipe can be an amazingly good organization tool for any dresser. Simply buy a length of pipe about 4-6 inches in diameter, measure the height of your drawers, and cut a few lengths of pipe to place in your dresser drawer.
