Organize Your Closet By Colour
So what are you doing this weekend? Why not organize your closet further to make your mornings or evenings even easier when choosing clothes to wear.

I've got some tips to share with you in regards to organizing your closet. Is your closet out of control? Do you spend too much time looking for that one favourite shirt that seems to have been eaten by your other clothes? Well be prepared to put all of that behind you, because it's time to organize your closet by colour!


 Looks great, doesn't it?! Now lets try to move on from our closet envy and figure out exactly how to pull off a colour-coded closet.

Steps to colour code your closet:
Separate your wardrobe into separate types of clothing (i.e., shirts, sweaters, jackets, shorts, skirts/kilts, and pants). Each type of clothing needs a special "home" in your closet so make sure to go ahead and designate a certain place to hold each type of clothing.
Pick one kind of clothing and begin there.
Pick a colour on the colour wheel and make that the "first" colour you start with. I recommend going with white or black in my case(yes I have a lot of black clothes)!
Then go around the colour wheel and put your clothes in that colour order. This will make finding that certain shirt or pair of pants so much easier!
Repeat steps 2-4 for the remaining categories of clothing. If you're really adventurous you could colour code other areas of your closet as well (i.e., shoes, ties, purses, etc.).


So why should you colour code your closet? There are about a million reasons but the best reason I can give you are that it makes finding clothes and planning outfits a much more effective process. It also makes your closet look gorgeous and organized. You'll be so proud of your wardrobe! You'll want to show it off to your friends :)

To maintain your closets colour separations, it's so easy to simply hang them correctly when your laundry is done! And, hey, maybe it'll finally feel like a real wardrobe!

Have fun colour coding your closet and have a wonderful weekend!
