With warmer days ahead, now is the time for closet organization. Online readers are searching for organizing shortcuts and stylish storage. Let’s face it, switching out a seasonal wardrobe can get ugly, especially if you have kids. It IS possible to make any closet or storage space stylish and functional.

 Closet organization tips and tricks from the experts at HGTV's Design Happens

When I’m organizing closets for a seasonal overhaul, it is a minimum two-day, 4-step process: wash, toss, store and stock.

Step 1: Wash/Dry Clean Winter Coats, Snow Gear and Sweaters.
Step 2: Toss Old, Unused or Outgrown Clothing.
I trash the bad and donate the good. When I was a stay-at-home mom with infants and toddlers, who outgrow clothing several times every season, I participated in children’s consignment sales. This is a great way to cash in on old clothes in order to buy a wardrobe in the next size. Here in Knoxville, we’re getting ready for the Duck Duck Goose event, the largest children’s consignment sale in the region.
Step 3: Store Cold-Weather Clothing. Early spring weather is unpredictable, so as a rule of thumb, I keep boxes of winter clothes accessible until Mother’s Day weekend. This is where stylish storage comes in handy.
Step 4: Stock Warm-Weather Clothing. Before organizing closets, make a list of everything you need for spring and summer. As you load up shelves, closets and drawers, take inventory so you can formulate a detailed shopping list. Knowing exactly what you have and what you need is essential for staying on a budget.

Even when it feels daunting, stay the course. Good closet organization is always worth the effort because it’s an everyday time-saver and the best way to greet the first warm, sunny days.
