How can I get my super small closet organized?

Q: I have a small room with a super small (4ft) closet! How can I get my closet organized? I have a LOT of clothes and shoes!

A: Oh I wish I were there to customize your space with you! I have a few ideas for you that should get you moving in the right direction.

First do a Love it or Lose it Purge. Make sure what you’re keeping looks and feels great. Once you’ve determined the keepers it’s time to plan out your closet.

Rubbermaid had a great Closet Design Tool . It walks you through a simple 4-step process.

1. Choose the right product for your project.
2. Determine the shape size of your closet.
3. Design the perfect closet to meet your needs.
4. Print out the list of everything you need to create your closet!

Here’s a great post from Pam Colsher, showing step by step how she organized her 4 foot closet!  “Maximizing My Closet Space”.  If you need a more inspiration we’ve got it… here’s the link to our CLOSETS blog posts!

    Wonderful blog! I found it while surfing around on Yahoo News. Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Thanks

    I have a 5′ closet so I know how you’re feeling about small space. Krista’s advice about purging is the best advice. Get rid of everything that you don’t love and is not versatile. It is very helpful if you have clothing that goes with many things and can be mixed and matched. I do this by buying almost all solid colors and spicing up outfits with scarves and other accessories. It’s like a couch. You buy a neutral couch and just change pillows to add variety.

    I also recommend using your wall space to hang organizers and hooks. Organize scarves on a scarf hanger. And shoes can be stored in a hanging shoe bag. If you don’t have a low hanging bar as well as a high one, get a low bar right away and double your space.

    Now one last secret: Huggable Hangers! They are super thin and sturdy. When I switched to those hangers from wood hangers I gained about a foot of space. No kidding.
