A lot of clothes! Where to put them?

IMG_5804-0

Are you the type of person that have so many clothes and not enough closet space? Well I’m one of those people. For the past four years I’ve been using a garment rack to help spread out clothes and create more space in my closet. Garment racks can vary in prices depending on what you’re looking for. I purchased my rack (shown above) from Bed Bath and Beyond for $19.99 but you can also find racks at Wal-Mart, Target, Amazon, and more.

Where to store a garment rack? In my old apartment I had a walk-in closet with an empty back wall and I placed it there. If you have an extra room that’s not in use you can start creating a custom closet of your own. If you have a blank wall in your room that you’re not using like I’m doing, place the rack there. By the rack being out of the closet you are more likely to see the clothes you wear more of or notice the clothes you forget about. With my rack I rotate my clothes. Those are just a few ideas.

What do you do with all of your clothes? Do you also have a garment rack or racks? Have you purchased extra storage drawers? How do you keep it organized? Comment below.

I’m cleaning out my closet and I had to come to the decision to let some items go. Some items I haven’t worn because I’ve lost weight and some are just chilling in my closet. Keep a lookout for new listing.

What’s In Your Closet

2015/01/img_5519.png

Okay let’s be honest a lot of us do it. Don’t even try to lie. We purchase something thinking we are going to wear it often. The next thing you know you wear it once and forget it’s in the back of your closet. You finally remember it when you’re trying to find something else. For me I hate throwing out clothes or shoes unless I know I can’t fit it. Especially if it’s too big. At the same time I don’t want to get rid of staple pieces that will continue to be in style such as blazers and tops.

What to do with all those clothes if you refuse to get rid of them. Hmmmmm…. Revamp your wardrobe! Think of new ways to wear your favorite pair of pants, that cool top, or pairing those shoes with something else. Think of what colors go well with each other. If you have a ton of summer dresses you can’t wear in the fall or winter because it’s either too short or to cold for it, pair it up with some cute tights and layer it with a cute blazer.

Guys are known for having less clothes than women so switching up what you wear with your favorite pair of jeans is a must. Currently I’m a Men’s Clothing Specialist at Saks. Yes I said it a Men’s Clothing Specialist. Women are great at styling men. Working there I’ve notice a lot of gentlemen stick to the same black or blue suit with a white button up shirt underneath. If you work five days a week to other people it will look like you’re wearing the same thing everyday. Something simple you can do is change up the color of your shirt and tie with your suits. A lot of guys that come into the store are very conservative and that’s their excuse on why their outfits are so plain. In a nice way I have to explain “you don’t have to look simple to keep your conservative style.”

Right now I’m in the process of moving and going through my closet. Like I said before I’m in the process for starting up a YouTube channel and I’m going to show you all some good examples on how to change up your wardrobe. Even if you have very few garments or have so many you can’t even count this video will be worth watching. I hope these tips will work out for you and keep a look out for the video that will go along with this topic.
