First step declutter
Before we start organizing your closet we need to do some decluttering. Decluttering is my favorite part of the organizing process because it’s so freeing to get rid of things that you don’t use or need.
Start by taking everything out of your closet. Then start purging, purging and purging. You shouldn’t have to spend so much time trying to figure out what to wear because you have way too much in your closet.
Get rid of all the clothes that no longer fit and that you no longer wear. Doing this will make your life less stressful because it will make getting ready much faster and easier.
A great added benefit of decluttering your clothes and closets is that you will have less laundry. Who doesn’t want less laundry to do?

Step two: Use What you already own
When you want to organize your closet on a budget or really any other place in your home on a budget it’s a good idea to use things around your home that you already own.
I found a shoe holder like this one from amazon that we owned already but weren’t using. I hung it up in my closet and used it to put scarves and beanies in. This keeps them all in one place and organized and since I found something I already owned it cost me no extra money.
Step three: Get organization products that are inexpensive
