You have a lot of clothes and not much space to store them? There are four simple ways to free up space in your wardrobe or closet for your favorite items and eliminate chaos.

How to quickly tidy up your closet and free up a lot of space in it, is told by RBC-Ukraine, based on Fit for Fun.

Empty the wardrobe completely

To fully declutter your wardrobe from scratch, you need to empty it completely. This will take some time and effort, but you'll be amazed at what hides between the shelves.

After that, clean the shelves and wipe down all surfaces.

Sort through the clothes

With everything laid out on the floor, it will be easier for you to sort through all the items. Set aside what you want to keep and what you're willing to part with. Divide everything you want to keep in the wardrobe into groups. For example: jeans separately, dresses separately, T-shirts and tops separately, sweaters separately.

Arrange the items in groups in the wardrobe. You can also organize them by colors or use special fabric boxes with labels.

Find small helpers

In small closets, avoid using bulky boxes or thick hangers. They take up unnecessary space and divert attention. Use thin and simple hangers instead. This creates more space and looks neater.

Install hanging compartments on the inside of the closet doors, suitable for small clothing items: underwear, swimwear, socks, scarves, and tights.

Create a digital archive

If you truly no longer wear certain clothes, you can give them away. Anything that you still cherish but is currently out of fashion is perfect for the archive.

It sounds complicated, but it's actually very simple, and Kim Kardashian uses this method. Ensure that old treasures are not forgotten.

Take a photo of each clothing item you want to have in your archive and save it in a specially created folder. Then carefully pack the clothes into boxes and sort them by categories such as spring/summer, fall/winter, and store them in the basement or attic.

Thanks to digitalization, you'll easily remember old clothing items in the future and find them again when you need them.
