Conquer closet creep with these time-saving tips

Having the right storage solu-

tions on hand also can go a long way towards helping you get organized and maintain a comfortable, grab-and-go life- style. Many do-it-yourself closet systems are available to help with your closet transformation. While professionally installed closet solutions can run thou- sands of dollars, you can pick up a ready-to-assemble kit containing everything you need to start creating a stylish custom closet in a weekend. So you can have the closet you want without a hefty price tag. But first, a little planning is

in order. Start by purging the chosen closet of items you no longer use. Banish sentimental- ity, and police your thoughts for these familiar closet-killers: * “I’ll be ready when that

comes back in style.” * “When I lose the weight, I’ll wear it again.”

Closet creep is real. No, your

possessions aren’t multiply- ing in the middle of the night, though it may seem that way.

But it does take resolve to tame the tendency to keep more than is discarded so your home stays organized and clutter-free.

* “I don’t really like it, but it

was a gift.” * “It’s out of style, but I al-

ways loved it.” Just can’t let it go? Try putting

the item on probation by tak- ing it out of your active closet and placing it in alternative storage—a basement or attic. In a year, if you haven’t been tempted to dig it out, you’ll be ready to pitch it—and well on your way to a more clutter-free home. Next, organize the items by

type and count them. How many pairs of shoes, pants, belts, suits and dresses do you need to accommodate? Then, measure your closet and inves- tigate solutions that make the best use of every inch of space. Many new homes are outfit-

ted with wire closet systems, but adjustable and beautiful wood solutions, such as Home Options Storage Solutions,

found in Lowe’s stores, are more attractive and often more flex- ible. The unique, all-in-one-box starter kit, containing one tower, three shelves, three rods, three drawers and one wide shelf, has everything you need to get started. In the meantime, what to

do with your closet clutter? Unload it for some quick cash on eBay,, at a local consignment shop or the neighborhood rummage sale, or take it to a donation drop- bin. Or have a “purge party” with friends, where every- one brings and swaps gently used clothing, shoes, purses, scarves and jewelry. Whatever is left at the end of the party is donated to charity.
