How Organizing a Closet can Help you Shop?

People organize their closets to make life easier. They want to be able to open the closet door, see all there is to see and be able to make quick choices about what to wear without having to hunt through a mess. But the process of organizing your closet can help you see the holes in your wardrobe that need to be filled. As you retire, donate, or store your clothing you are going to get a pretty good idea of what articles of clothing you need to buy.

Keep a pad of paper and a pen handy as you are sorting. If you notice that your two best white t-shirts really aren’t your best anymore and have decided to either make them into rags or toss them – write down that you need to purchase two white t-shirts. This will save you some time and a headache the next time you are searching for an item that is no longer in your closet before you remember, “oh yeah, I got rid of that.” This goes the same for the rest of the things you don’t put back in your closet.

When you are done deciding what to keep and what to toss and have made your list put all of your clothing back in the closet and have another look. When you have your entire pant collection grouped together, do you see any holes that could be filled? Maybe you have lots of black dress pants but no casual ones, add that to your list too. When your list is complete you may not be able to go out and buy everything on it, but it will help you when you are out shopping to decide what you need first. To that end, keep your list with you at all times.
