Kesha Scott, owner of the online resale shop Glam Authority, specializes in helping clients get organized, gain closet space, and make money on items they never wear.
Here are Kesha's tips for tackling your own closet nightmare:
1. Clear the Floor
Get everything off the floor so you can actually see what you have.
2. Separate clothes into four piles:
3. Create a "Go-To" Section
Create a section right in the front of your closet for those items you wear the most, such as your wardrobe staples, most-worn shoes and most-used handbags. This helps you dress quickly when you need to get out the door.
4. Color Code Clothes
Arrange hanging clothes according to color.
5. Boots Use manila folders to keep their form.
Roll them corner to corner and stick in shaft of boot so the boot stands up. Hang boots on a skirt/pant hanger by clips. Make sure toes point inward to keep weight even and hanging straight.
To keep them from getting tangled, hang on jewelry hooks. Hang hats on nails.
7. Find Alternate Storage
Use your suitcases or under-bed boxes to store items you don't use every day or seasonal clothes.
8. Stop shopping.
Kesha recommends a 90-day break from shopping after you clean out your closet. After re-organizing, you may find you have everything you need already inside!
Then, head back to that pile and sell your quality items that you don't wear. For more on Kesha, visit her ebay store: http://stores.ebay.com/GlamAuthority
