Store Your Clothes Like a Pro

December 21, 2022

We know we’re a cleaning company buuuut we love ALL things home, including organization. Having a clean, organized bedroom closet is not only appealing to the eye, but will make your mornings much easier when figuring out what to wear. It’s time to purge and organize folks! 

When you buy through our links, we may earn a small commission.

If your budget allows, custom built-in closet organizers can be a game-changer for creating a system for your closet. BUT, we are all about working with what you got. So, whether it’s a small, cramped closet or a spacious spare bedroom that acts as a massive walk-in closet,  let’s dive into making the best out of the closet that you are working with today! 


Before you begin any organizing, let’s purge! 

It’s easy to hold onto things we don’t wear, but it does nothing but take up space. A closet packed to the brim can feel stressful – and that’s a huge mistake. (We don’t want any space in your home to overwhelm you!) 

Go through and pull out the pieces you don’t wear anymore. Separate them into a donation pile and a selling pile. (By the way, try to do this at the end of every season to keep your closet full of fresh pieces you love to wear). 

A great way to make those tough decisions is to hang all items up backwards on hangers. Once you wear and wash something, hang it back up the proper way. At the end of the year (or season) look at everything still hung the wrong way, these are pieces you haven’t worn! It’s time to let them go. 


Firstly, cleaning your closet is a must. Clothes being stored tend to bring a lot of lint and dust to your baseboards, floors, and shelves. Vacuuming (Canada) (USA) frequently will help keep away dust bunnies. Use our Tide® and water mixture (1 gallon hot water and 1 tsp powdered Tide®) to wipe down walls, baseboards, and shelves.

Hang ‘em up!


When it comes to closet organization, velvet hangers (Canada) (USA) are a personal favorite of ours. Velvet prevents clothes from slipping off and falling on the floor, which will not only help keep you sane, but matching velvet hangers look stunning all together. There are also some specialty hangers great for hanging scarves (Canada) (USA), ties (Canada) (USA) and belts! (Canada) (USA)

Code it

Having some sort of order in your closet is essential to staying organized. We’ve all seen those gorgeous rainbow Instagram-worthy closets. You can do it too!

  • Style coded. Style coding your clothes is another great way to store them. This means arranging your closet by type of item. (i.e. T-shirts, tank tops, long sleeves, sweaters, etc.) If you want to go the extra mile, you group by style within each coloured section, or vice versa!
  • Color coded. Color coding your closet is a simple way to elevate the look of your closet and make finding pieces simple. 


Shoe racks (Canada) (USA) are a must! Having your shoes off the ground and up where you can see them is ideal. Especially when you seem to find shoes scattered at every entrance in your home. Don’t forget to clean your shoe racks regularly because we can tell you from experience, they get filthy!


Find some storage space, perhaps bins under the bed (Canada) (USA) or on top of your closet (Canada) (USA). A great way to keep your closet full of fresh pieces is to cycle them in and out each season. Once winter/fall comes, go through your closet and remove and store all of your spring/summer clothes and vice versa.


Folding your clothes in a way that is effective is important. Ditch the idea of folding things on top of each other and opt for folding things in front of each other. Fold your shirts as you normally would, then fold into thirds and place them in your drawer one in front of the other. This will save space and make it easier to see each item. This will work for shirts, pants, shorts, you name it! 
Drawer dividers (Canada) (USA) or bins can help bring order, too – especially for the small stuff!


Keep it simple for your kids! Sort their things by size and season. Keep things that are still a little too big away from their current clothes. Let the stuff that’s too small go or put it in a bin (Canada) (USA) to store until your younger kiddos fit them. 

There are so many families in need of kids’ clothes. If you have stuff to donate, find a local charity or organization to drop them off at. Just make sure they’re clean and in good shape. (We also know some items have sentiment behind them, so we understand if you want to keep a few things.)

Having a clean, organized closet looks and feels good. It will help you elevate your style by knowing what you have and where it is. DM us those before and after pics. We want to see them!

I circled rollerblades in the Sears Wish Book every year…and every year my mother would patiently explain that we lived on an acreage with gravel roads and rollerblades do not work on gravel…and every year I would be so disappointed when they didn’t show up under the tree. 🤣🤦🏼‍♀️ #nostalgia #christmastime

PSA: A lot of people don’t know you can do this when you order a gift off of Amazon. At check out, you can select that the item is a gift and then choose the option to add a gift bag and a custom message and this is how it is delivered! You don’t have to worry about the surprise being ruined if they open the box because it’s already wrapped and they can plunk it under the tree. Perfect if you have family far away that you won’t be seeing this holiday season. Saves ya time and energy in the chaos of the season. 🎁🎄🎅🏻🕰️🕰️🕰️ #christmastime

Okay my DM’s are full of people asking for this to live on the feed. Brew a cup of coffee. I use a @nespresso pod but any regular cup java will do. Add in one scoop of your fav protein powder (or do half if you find this too sweet). This-is-a-wing-it-to-how-you-like-it-recipe as most cups of coffee are. I used vanilla protein powder here with a sprinkle of cinnamon, tastes a Christmasy! My go to is usually chocolate protein because it tastes like a mocha. Froth it with frother and drink it hot or over ice. This gets me 26 grams of protein right in the morning which helps cause I’m not a breakfast person. I’m trying y’all. 💪🏻 🍑

I have shared my new BLANCO sink and faucet but let’s talk about accessories, did you know BLANCO also has under sink organization systems? I completed my BLANCO UNIT with the BOTTON II, it tidies up the mess under your kitchen sink and it pulls out like a drawer; you can store your cleaning supplies in it and also has a handy dandy little handle so you can take your supplies with you around the house. I have a post up on their blog that goes into depth about BLANCO maintenance and care, and more tips in my stories so make sure you check them out. You folks had lots of questions about BLANCO last round and I am happy to help. Plus BLANCO customer service can answer any maintenance questions you might have. #sponsored @blancoamerica1

It is the final week of the Fall Cleaning Challenge which means we are cleaning the Common Area’s in our homes (that’s hallways, closets, mudrooms, porches and laundry rooms) we are ALSO taking our buckets, Aquablades, power washers and shop vacuums outside to clean up our outdoor spaces before the ❄️ hits. This is a big week. What’s the biggest disaster area that you need to tackle this week? I’ll go first. It’s my scary linen closet which currently it has a sign on on it that says CAUTION ⚠️ 😂 I also got a new leaf blower that I am very excited to blast some dirt and 🍂 with. Pace yourselves, WE GOT THIS! 👊🏻 #cleaningtips

If you are sick of doing dishes, we got this off Amazon for Stella’s apartment cause she didn’t have a dishwasher and she would not stop complaining about it. The little window is so cute, you can watch everything that happening in it, it’s almost as dramatic as and episode of Love is Blind. 5 stars ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️ ⭐️ from Stella! #amazonfinds

Heya. 👋🏼 Sarah here. We are wrapping up Week One (Kitchen Week—the most overwhelming) of the Fall Cleaning challenge. How is it going? What have you got done? My job during these Challenges is to motivate and help educate you on the most efficient and effective ways to clean so you feel confident about moving onto the next week with us! The Cleaning Challenges get easier each time we do them as it’s a scheduled, routine deep clean that helps you stay on top of things before they get out of hand. If you deep cleaned in the Spring Challenge with us, I know (based on the hundreds of DM’s🤣) that this week felt easier because you lined the tops of your cupboards with parchment paper in the Spring! I find it hard to put into writing how cleaning can make you feel SO GOOD, satisfied and proud of your home. I can’t explain the feeling feeling until you roll up your sleeves and get to work and feel it yourself. Once one room is done, please stop and stand back and survey your work. Take a minute to feel the accomplishment in your bones. This is hard but rewarding work and you CAN do it—I will cheer you on the entire way. Keep sending me your before and afters! They make me so happy and proud of each you, I feel like I am helping clean millions of homes around the world and that’s honestly pretty cool. 😎
