I’m writing this post on the best way to organize your clothes.. Most women, have closets. But is your closet a mess? Or is it neatly organized? Or do you have just too much stuff & it won’t fit? I’m here to give you some ideas on the best ways to get organized. And what store will I be mentioning? Of course, Ikea. The ideal place for every person on a budget.
Hangers: These I think are the cheapest hangers, and take up the least amount of space. I don’t care for wooden hangers, or cushioned fabric covered ones; why? Simply because they take up too much space. But if you’re a basic girl, here’s your basic hanger: The Bagis hanger at Ikea, where 4 of them are 40 cents!!
My favorite hangers: Velvet covered ones. I have hundreds of these (I think). My closet is full of them. And I love them because they’re neat & slim, & none of my clothes fall off. And the best places to get them? TJMaxx, Marshalls & Lot less. They will sell a 25 pack for like $10, which I think is a great deal.
For accessories, like belts & scarves: this is called Komplement, at Ikea, and you can hang all of your accessories on it right in your closet, or on the back of your door. For your boyfriend/husband, get him one for his ties. And it only costs $8.
There are other belt organizers, also at good prices. This belt hanger below is sold by Umbra, for only $10.
For shoes: If you have more than a several pairs of shoes, then you will need a shoe organizer. You don’t want them to be on a mess all over your floor. You can get the kind that you hang on the back of your door, or inside your closet. And each one is about $13. If you get it from Ikea it’s about $8.
Drawer dividers: If you want to get really organized in your drawers: There are drawer organizers, for i.e. at Ikea they are called Hofta, $2.99 for a 3 pack.
Ikea Skubb drawer organizer: They are really wonderful for they can help you organize your drawers for anything. I think that they are really great at separating your undergarments. Best to buy them at Ikea, for they are only $8 for 6 of them. They DO sell some Ikea items on Amazon, but of course the prices will be exaggerated. On Amazon they sell the same thing for $20. Best to get to the closest Ikea near you.
Hanging organizers: If you don’t have enough dresser space but more closet space: get a hanging organizer. These are wonderful, sturdy, & start at about $7. I use them usually to fold up my sweaters, but i.e. if you have a collection of bags & nowhere to put them, this would be a great idea.
For the girls who don’t have closets: Consider getting a wardrobe. The plastic wardrobes at Ikea start around $18, whereas a real wardrobe starts at $100. I’ve seen girls who don’t have closets just hang their clothes on a clothing rack. It seems a little bit tacky because everyone can see your clothes. Plus this doesn’t prevent dust from getting on your clothing.
If you ARE on a budget, don’t have a closet, the next best thing would be: Rubbermaid 60″ garment closet, at Walmart for only $34. This is a temporary fix if you don’t have a closet/wardrobe. This is also another great way to store seasonal clothes. Check below for link if you want to purchase.
For your expensive garments: Keep them in garment bags. I mean for your evening gowns, for the men, their suits. You can get them at the dollar store. They also sell them in sets at Ikea. Protect the most expensive garments you have.
