Too many Clothes in your Closet?

Last update: 20 December, 2018

We live in a consumer world. Often, we make unnecessary purchases, especially clothes, which we rarely use and then have to find a place for. When you have too many clothes in your closet, what do you do?

Sometimes we lose sight of the fact that we have things we haven’t used for a long time and that we probably won’t ever use again. We convince ourselves that it’s better to keep everything just in case we need it one day.

Through these habits, we turn the house into a place for storage, especially the closet and the bedroom. This can seriously affect the aesthetics of a room. Also, we end up maintaining chaos over order.

Guidelines to follow before making a purchase

If you know that your closet has too many clothes in it, you need to make some decisions. Too many clothes isn’t good for you or your decor.

First, you need to acknowledge that you have too many things and don’t use half of what you have. Then, take a look at your purchasing habits, especially if you feel the need to buy things often.

So, look inward before you head out shopping. If you really need something, it’s okay to buy it. On the other hand, if you’re considering buying something just because you like it, even though you already own something similar, then it’s time to question your habits.

Most people have too many clothes in their closet.

Solutions for too many clothes

First, you need to make the decision to change and get rid of all those clothes that you don’t use anymore. Here are some solutions:

  • Reuse old clothes as rags or for a new use, like cleaning, for example. Then you can give the clothes a second life while giving your closet some breathing room.
  • Donate clothes that are still in good condition. There are charities that collect clothes and give them to the less fortunate.
  • Recycle your old laundry baskets, even if they’re broken. In almost all cities, you can find places to recycle these types of things. Recycling is so important in today’s world.
  • Use the fabric for other uses: crafts, patches, decoration, etc.

Order leads to cleanliness

Another factor to consider is just general tidiness. A big pile of clothes makes any room look messy and could become the perfect nest for insects or moths.

A clean, well-organized closet that allows clothes to “breathe” prevents unwelcome guests.

Therefore, order should be the main way to promote cleanliness. It also doesn’t hurt to use an anti-moth product.

It’s preferable to have less clothes that will be useful on a day-to-day basis.

Getting rid of things you don't use can prevent you from having too many clothes.

The benefit of having an organized closet

It’s important to maintain order inside your closet and dresser. You should be able to fit your clothes without them getting wrinkled or stuffing them in.

  • Organization also helps you get ready quicker. If everything is correctly arranged, you can quickly find what you need. It is also helpful to put things back.
  • You should focus on practicality over inefficiency. Storing things without organization isn’t good for you.
  • Try to have space available whenever you want to store a new garment or simply to change how you have your clothes placed in the closet.
  • You can create well-being, comfort, and cleanliness in your day-to-day life as long as you keep your closet organized and prevent it from becoming overcrowded.
