We have all gotten to the point where we have so many clothes that we end up with nowhere to put them. This is why we decided to create a blog post all about how you can declutter and organise your closet, in order to help you to feel more organised.

Start With A Plan

Before diving into decluttering your closet, make a plan of action. You will want to decide how much time you can dedicate to the task and determine your goals for the end result. If you go in blind, then this can become overwhelming, which is why it is always a good idea to start with a plan. 

Empty The Closet

Take everything out of your closet and place it in a designated area. This will give you a clear vision of what you have and allow you to assess each item individually and really decide whether or not you would like to keep it. 

Sort and Categorise

Create piles or categories for your clothing items. Set aside similar clothing items and group them together i.e. dresses, t-shirts, shorts, etc. This will help you see the number of items you have in each category and the different types of clothing that you own. 

Evaluate Each Item

Go through each item and ask yourself if it still fits, if you love it, or if you have worn this item in the last year. If the answer to any of these questions is no then consider donating or selling these items. 


Remove the items that you no longer need or want from your closet. Be honest with yourself and let go of the things that no longer serve you. If you are planning on decluttering but you do not want to get rid of things permanently, have you considered renting a storage unit? At Storage Tameside, you can rent a storage unit relatively cheaply with us. Get in contact today to organise a storage unit. 


Once you have decluttered, it is now time to organise your clothes. Choose a system that works well for you such as organising by items or colours, etc. Invest in storage solutions, like hangers, bins, and shelves to maximise space. 

Utilise Vertical Space

Make use of all available space by using hooks, hanging organisers, or over-the-door storage for accessories and smaller items. This will create more room within your closet and make it easier to find things that you need.

Maintain Regularly

To prevent future clutter, commit to regularly reviewing and purging your closet. Set a schedule for seasonal decluttering and make it part of your routine. 

Donate Or Sell

Instead of throwing away unwanted items, consider donating them to a local charity or selling them online. This allows your items to find a new home and reduce waste. 

Enjoy Your Organised Closet

Step back and admire your newly organised closet. Enjoy the ease of finding items, the visual appeal, and the sense of accomplishment.

Remember that organising your closet is an ongoing process. Stay mindful of what you bring into your closet and periodically reassess your clothing to maintain a clutter-free space. If you are interested in renting a storage unit with us here at Storage Tameside, then please get in contact with us today and we will find you a storage unit perfect for you.
