You don’t realize how important closet space is until you have a small closet. Growing up, I had a cramped closet in my bedroom that went far back, but was too narrow to be useful. I stuffed whatever I could in there, and had to deal with everything else in another way. It was cluttered, disorganized, and really annoying. At some point during high school, my dad built me a larger closet – it wasn’t a walk-in, but it was bigger and offered a lot more space than my other one, and it changed my life… well, at least my bedroom life. Small closets are a pain, and I wish I knew these organizing secrets back when I was younger.
Because, honestly, the key to making a small closet work is keeping it organized. This is easier said than done when you have more stuff than you do space, but it’s still not impossible. Put aside a weekend to redo your closet, spend some money on a few items that will make your life easier, and DIY a few things that will save room. With the right organization tips, you can transform your tiny, cramped closet into a place where everything has a spot and is easy to find. You don’t need a walk-in closet to keep your stuff together! Here’s proof – these genius tips on how to organize a small closet are kind of life-changing. Thank me later!
