Clothes organization system

Anyone want to share one that is working?

I have tried one of those hanging canvas things with the little pockets. Problem is though I hang it up with good intentions...it never gets used. Or whatever I put in there I forget.

I'm thinking of a 3 bin system.

1. clean laundry

2. sorta clean laundry

3. needs washing
This does not solve heartbroken socks(I wear flipflops all the time but need closed toed shoes on for work) issue however.

I don't care about keeping whites separate...start small


At least it will be better than the current piles on floor that you forget which is which system.

Re: Clothes organization system

My suggestion, which is maybe what you have already come up with:

- Observe the way you really behave

- Make an absolute minimum of changes to that "natural" behaviour, just enough to make it look official and organized. For example, in the exact place where the current pile of dirty clothes is, place a bin of about the right size. If it's in the wrong place, you might not use it. And... so on.

Re: Clothes organization system

omg i read at first "closed toad shoes". lol!

if it sounds logical to you, try it! ghe simpler, the better. you could buy some nice laundry baskets for this.

I dont do the laundry but after many years i can now actually find my clothes- some are hanging up and the rest is on shelves in this armoire thing we have. its kind of in simple categories (pajamas and socks - for work - not for work).

Re: Clothes organization system

Brilliant dvd. Location is everything. Over summer the place I moved had a walk in closet so I hung the organizer up in there. Never used it because you'd have to go in there to put the clothes up.

We had no dryer so the walk in closet turned into the drying room with a dehumidifier going. It ended up that after the clothes were dried they would hang in there or lay in piles until I wore them...at which point they would end up on the floor beside the bed.

It actually meant my room looked cleaner than normal because all the clothes were hiding in the otherwise empty closet.

Stef: Categories would really help. But realistically I'm not sure they'd get use.

That's my system, a big pile of clean laundry, half on the bed, half in a bin (lot of rummaging), the dirty clothes are tossed into the laundry room or the bedroom floor, the not-quite dirty enough to not wear agains go wherever I hope I remember where I put them.

Nothing is folded.

Develop a system? Who am I kidding? But I suppose I could start with some big cardboard boxes?

Revert, revert, revert, I always revert from organised to chaos, which makes me wonder if I should even bother to be organised, but with life in general, if I don't attempt to organise at all, things will be total chaos, which makes things even more complicated in their own light.

Always Disorganised Daily

Re: Clothes organization system

Own less clothes, do one load a day before bed. Dry in the morning.
