How I Organized My Closet, Cheap and Decluttered.

Updated on March 10, 2018

My Messy Closet How I Organized It.

I was cleaning my closet today. What a mess it wouldn't be so bad if I would just get rid of half of it. I never go anywhere often so why do I have all these clothes. I need to organize and declutter this closet without it costing me a fortune. This is how I did it cheaply. The pile you see is heading for Goodwill. Getting rid of clutter will help you get organized. The example I was looking for my hair products in my bathroom closet. There were items in there from 1999. I pulled the trash into the bathroom and started throwing away. It is not good to keep products that long.

My closet is pretty good size. It was once a half part of a porch. It has a window and enough room to leave the ironing board up. The closet doesn't have the expensive organizers. They cost too much money and they don't seem to have enough hanging space. I'm not going to spend that kind of money for something that is not going to work in my closet. If you want to get your closet organized cheap, then buy cheap cabinets like the black one below.

In this closet, I have to put our winter and summer clothes. Everyday clothes and my husband’s work clothes. I have some of my sheets and pillow cases in the closet. There’s purses, shoes, and boxes full of photos and jackets.

It's so cold here we have many jackets. There's heavy jackets, medium jackets, and light jackets. Never without a jacket if you're not wearing it you need to, at least, have one in the car when you go someplace. Weather can change on a dime here.

I’m trying to get it organized. I wish I could pack away winter clothes and then pull them out later, but it just doesn't work for me to do that. I would pack away and winter would be here before I knew it. We're into almost June and it's 58 outside. We get cold enough days here to need a long sleeve shirt or a sweater.

Here’s the problem with hangers in the closet. Plastic hangers come in all different shapes, some are heavier and some hang lower. If you're using plastic buy the same kind and same color so the closet will look better. This will make the closet look organized. I have been buying some wood hangers. I buy a box here and there, the boxes of hangers in Walmart are $12.95 a box of 20. I looked online in Walmart and they're about $24.00 a box. I don't know why there's a difference. I have found that there are suit hangers and flat wood hangers. The suit hangers work the best, but they have to turn a certain way. There's a little dip in the front of the hanger. They need to fit into that dip. The clothes seem to stay on the suit hangers better than the flat wood hangers. Once they're placed the right way, they back right into each other just perfect. They do take up a little more space than the plastic hangers. They also don't smash the clothes together like the plastic. If you have a small closet and lots of clothes the wood hangers may not work the best for you. You can buy hangers called slimline at Bed Bath and Beyond. They will fit better into a small closet about $29.95 for 50 counts they are velvet covered. The items won't slip off like they do on plastic hangers.

Reasons To Declutter:

The item is too big or too small

It's just old and out of style

It's torn or has a stain on it

You have way to many of this type of clothing (T-shirts)

Takes Time To Get Organized

It takes awhile but it will be worth it, in the end, to see your closet all clean. After the closet is clean I still find things to get rid. If you have room keep a box or basket in the closet to put things in you want to go to Goodwill or the resale shop. There many places where you can donate them.

Now just to keep the cats out and keep my clothes from getting hairs on them, that's a trick I haven't figured out yet. Levi Jones was watching me the whole time. My computer is right outside my closet and that's where he laid so he can peek in the closet.

Like I said, in the beginning, I have my ironing board in my closet. The ironing board cover has a pocket I keep baby powder a toothbrush and sticky roller for cat hair in the pocket. On the ironing board, I keep the iron, an iron pad and a bottle of water. If you want to find out what I do with the baby powder check out my hub.

Homemaker, Housewife, Mother, How To Fixes.

Use what you have in the house. Rework your baskets or plastic containers for your closet. I have often seen wire closet racks at yard sales. You're going to have people in your closet often. At least, if you do it will be neat and you will be able to find everything. Go over it once a month to keep it that way.

If you have to buy a container buy the type you can see through it helps if you don't have to guess what is in the container.

If you don't iron clothes right away you will need a basket for the ironing. My Mom used to sprinkle her ironing, roll each item up and place in a bag. Then she put them in the freezer until she could get to them. That is not something I would do now, but I did do that with our clothes when the kids were all home.

When you buy a new item to add to the closet take at least 2 old items out and give to a charity. That will stop the closet from building up again and will force you to make a decision to get rid of more junk. When you decluttering the closet get rid of things you've had for years. Why keep them, they may never fit again and by the time they come back in style you will be too old to wear the style.

Organize Your Hanging Clothes.

The first thing you should do when organizing your closet is to empty it and vacuum and dust the closet. If it's too inconvenient to empty the whole closet work around the hanging clothes. At least, empty the floor. Closets can get dusty even the top of the hangers will get dust on them.

When you hang your clothes run your arm between the items and straight to the back of each item and down. This will keep the item from wrinkling. Hang your clothes as colored coded as you can put white with white and black with black and so on. It will look neat and more relaxing.

We hang one hanging shelf above another. My husband's things are on the top and mine below.

I have lots of white t-shirts and I had them hanging. Today I took them down and realized I could just fold them and put them on the shelf. I also did that with the black ones.

Hang long sleeved clothes with long sleeve and short sleeve with short sleeve. Pants should together and tops put to together. If you hang pants in among your shirts you will always be losing items you would like to wear.

We put in extra shelf’s above some of our hanging rods so we could stack items on there. If you're planning on changing your closet, you can put on wire racks or use rods with a shelf above. Don't waste space if you can run shelves all the way up the wall if you have taller walls. We don't have that in this closet, it has a slanted roof.

My purses I sat on the shelf. I had them hanging on a hanger and it just wasn't working.

The black shelf with jeans and sweat pants on it is the shelf we bought at Walmart. I think it was about $30.00, it holds a lot. The pants to the side are wire shelves we put low and I hang pants on this rack. On the top folded pajamas, t-shirts, and throws.

We also use our closet door to hang robes on. Place baskets in the closet for flip flops and for slippers. Just slide the baskets under the clothes. They're not high enough to interfere with the clothes.

Men have:


heavy lined jeans




sweat pants

That’s about all men have. Some men have suits. My husband doesn't. I never get rid of any of his clothes. I just move them onto the work clothes rack when I think they don't look good anymore or he uses them for rags.

Women have:


Casual pants

Dress pants









Shelves to put shoes on for the closets

We have shelves on the floor for shoes. Shoes can be stuck under the shelf and shoes put on top of the shelf. I also bought the plastic shoe boxes to put my shoes in and a cube box for shoes. The plastic boxes are good for shoes you don't wear often, keeps them dust free. If you don't want to spend money on plastic boxes than keep shoe boxes. Take a picture of the shoes, print it and tape to the shoe box and put that pair of shoes in that box. I keep shoe boxes anyway because they are made so well. Great for storing anything. You pay good money to buy a box made that well.

I end up with lots of house slippers. The kids and my husband get them for me and if I see a good pair I buy them. That is all I wear in the house. Place a basket on the floor to throw all your slippers in and a basket for flip flops.

I also love pretty boxes to keep photos or other items in them. They go on sale often at places like Jo Ann's. They look much better than plastic containers. If you're like me I have to keep extra things in my closet because it's pretty much my one and only closet.

Special Spot

If you can fix a place in your closet or just outside the closet to put your outfit for work the next day then do that. It saves time to put the outfit you're going to wear to work in that special spot. I place skirt, shirt and shoes altogether. I even place my jewelry a necklace or bracelet around the neck of the hanger for the next day. You won't be running around in the morning looking for something to wear.

Today I went in Kohl's big sale, Kohl's cash and I had coupons. I needed some summer tops. I bought 4 so I went in my closet and I took 8 items out for charity. One was a shirt I hate to see on my husband so I figured it was a good time to get rid of it.

I just cleaned my closet and organized it so you would think I wouldn't have anything to take out. I hoard when I shouldn't. Now if I don't want to get rid of anything else I guess I won't be doing any more shopping this year. This is just another cheap way to get it organized. It won't cost you a penny to get rid of more clothes.

Smaller Home 2017.

I have now moved into a very small home With small clostes and not many of them. I had some round paper clips I had not used for years. I added them to my hangers. I was able to hang double the number of clothes in the closet.

Soda can tabs can be used instead. You could use as many as three or more. They cost nothing.

      Seems like organizing closets is a never ending job. Sharing this article. With school about to start it's a good time for a new start with closets too. Fall and winter are on the way and people are going to be needing their winter-wear along with packing up their summer clothes.

      Hope all is well there . . .

      Many of these closet organizers utilize individual bins that you can label and group together with other items.

      I like to keep everything organized too. Recently I went through and did one of those cleaning sprees where everything gets wiped down. I went through my kitchen cabinets and got rid of stuff that I haven't used in the past year. It's amazing how much stuff can be accumulated in a small amount of time.

      This is a very useful for anyone who needs to organize a closet. I did it before when I was single and I hated the cleaning, throwing away of things, and reorganizing. You have some very good tips and pictures. Voted up and sharing with followers and on Facebook. Also Pinning.

      No problem. It's a great Hubpage. I'm planning at some point to do some Hubs on consigning clothes and having a garage sale. These may help you get rid of some unwanted items. Or if you have the money, you can just donate them, get a receipt, and possibly a tax write-off. :)

      misslong123, It's still in good shape. I went through it this spring and got rid of some clothes and planning on getting rid of more. We bought another shoe cubby and moved the shoes under the window it looks better that way makes a little window bench. Thanks so much for stopping by I appreciate, Michele.

      I love your advice and what you did to your closet. Great job! Have you been able to keep it that way? That's one thing about organization - you have to make it functionala - a way that you can keep it organized and keep everything in place. It can be difficult. Is it still functional for you? Beautiful closet and great job at organization!! Michele

      sgbrown, I keep curtains on my closet window. Your right it would fad the clothes if it was left open. I also put curtains on so no one can look in in case they're casing the joint. LOL Good idea with the plastic crates. I do change my shoes around and keep my flip flops in an old picnic basket with a closing lid. Thanks so much for stopping by and for the vote.

      Your closet sounds a lot like mine. My closet is long and narrow and has a window at both ends. I think it used to be part of the bedroom. It is really the only closet we have too, so it catches a lot of clutter. Be sure to keep your windows covered as the clothes closest to the windows will get faded places on them. I love plastic tubs. I keep my winter shoes in a tub, slid under the clothes during the summer and my summer shoes on a wire shelf that sits on top of two plastic crates under the clothes. I can just toss my flip flops in the crate at the end of the day. Closet organization can make life much easier! You did a great job on yours. Mine needs a little "tlc" this year. Voted up and useful! :)

      Closet organizing is big business and this hub is great for people who want to save money by doing it themselves. One thing I have always had is organized closets and kitchen cabinets/pantry. The rest of my house is a disaster, but my closets, etc., were/are always ship-shape. Having organized storage areas can make life so much easier!

      Excellent hub with useful information and ideas. Voted up and useful and will share!

      Hi Moonlake, I really like your no nonsense tips and suggestions. I never thought about getting wooden hangers, but that would look so nice! I am about to endeavor to clean out a closet that is way overdue, so looking over other people's ideas. I want to give away or sell, and try selling first like at resale shops. I have made a little money this way, which is nice to try and recoup some of the cost. Thanks for sharing.

Just might do it after reading this hub! Voted up, useful and interesting and will share.

      Stacy Harris 5 years ago from Hemet, Ca

      I am pretty fortunate... I have a huge closet for me... and my husband has his own. And believe me, I completely fill both of them up. Part of this is because neither of us actually fold our clothes anymore and put them into drawers. When we first moved, we didn't have a full bedroom set anymore so almost everything had to be hung up. I kind of like it this way because it is much easier to find everything. However, I will admit, it is almost time to clean them out! Out with the old because it is getting a bit crowded!

      Joanna McKenna 6 years ago from Central Oklahoma

      I cleaned out my closet a few months ago. Didn't even PLAN to do it! Just opened the door one afternoon, saw something I hadn't worn in YEARS and that's all it took. Two trash bags of clothes later (for Goodwill), it looked MUCH better! But I refuse to buy anything to organize a closet. If it gets to that point, it's time to weed out the excess! As a matter of fact, now that I live in a much warmer climate, I *could* get rid of my winter coats and several barn jackets I don't wear any more!

      Loved your new rule to get rid of two items for every new item you buy! A two-fer in reverse!

      This is a good reminder to sort out my winter clothes and put them away. You are right about having hangers that are all the same shape. It is tempting to use the wire hangers from the drycleaner - but they do put clothes out of shape.

      Also, your tip to give 2 items to charity for every item you buy is helpful. I tend to hoard stuff that I will probably never wear again.

      Great Hub. I like to hang my short sleeved tops in one place, long sleeves in another. That helps me stay organized. My Mother always said if you didn't wear a garment for the past two years, get rid of it. I think she was right. I'm voting this Hub UP,etc.

      I have been taking another trip through and I can see more has to come out of there. I really haven't taken a good look at summer stuff we're still wearing winter so I know there will be more. Thanks, so much for stopping by and leaving a comment.

      So glad you stopped by. I know, it's much better when the closet is in order. Bob is one of the nice posters on HubPages. My husband is Gene. I appreciate you coming by and leaving a comment.

      I know Bob,

      My husbad never looks at the closet or his clothes. He has never bought a shirt or pair of pants in our whole married life.

      Thanks, for stopping by and leaving a comment I appreciate it.

      Having an organized closet really is a great time saver. In addition to getting rid of those things you don't need, a good tip is to make another "trip" through your closed and take a 2nd look at how many of those items you have actually worn after the initial clean out.

      I love an organized closet. I finally got rid of a heap of clothes to give to good will. Your Bob sounds exactly like my Bob, he refuses to shop for clothes. Helpful hub:)

      I have a large cuboard. It smell of moth's balls. I throw stuff in there,loosely folded. I hate clothes and would go nude if I could. Womem do well with closets; men do not.

      Good hub if you're a closet person

      debbiepinkston, I could stand to get rid of more and I will. Sometimes you look at things and you're just not sure. If it's a shirt I have to keep pulling down it is going. Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment.

      Thanks for sharing your ideas. I just took about 1/2 of the clothes out of my closet to give to Goodwill. Less is more and it's easier to organize. It's also a good way to get a tax deduction!
