Allow yourself at least 10 to 20 minutes a week to decluttering your home. Each week you can get a feel of what your closet looks like in its entirety and figure out how much space you actually need. Perhaps you’ll need a custom closet organizer in Stuart to help solve the problem of finding extra space.
Children and adults alike can be encouraged with incentives for keeping a neat and tidy closet space. Make it a weekly event, right after dinner or school, and then get ice cream, go out to dinner, or go to a movie. Rewards are something to look forward to for children and adults.
It may be difficult to part with your items once you go through them, but if it hasn’t been worn, used, played with in over 6 months, it’s time to find it a new home. This is one reason clutter stays comfortable in your closet. We tend to hang on to the thought that the item has attached itself too, whether it’s a child’s toy or an article of clothing from your youth.

All of these helpful tips can improve the quality of your home life and maintain the closet space you need. But if they aren’t being regularly put into action, you will have a clutter closet problem.
