Cleaning out your closet is not exactly the most thrilling spring activity, but it goes a long way in helping speed up your mornings by showing you what you really have in your closet and even reminding you of items you had forgotten. It also gives you the opportunity to clear out old clothes you no longer need that can be donated, or turned in for resale on sites like ThredUP or eBay. Sometimes all you need to get organized are the right products.
We have rounded up the top choices to get your closet in order:
High quality hangers are a good place to start. I myself prefer to use velvet coated hangers, like the AmazonBasics Velvet Suit Hangers. They help keep the true shape of your clothes and prevent them from slipping off.
AmazonBasics hangers feature a non-slip velvet material that holds clothes in place without falling or sagging. The contoured shoulders keep clothes shapes while the additional notches help to keep accessories in place.
The hanger’s slim and sleek design allows you to maximize space in your closet while keeping your clothes secure while being stored. The durable and sturdy design is able to hold clothes up to 10 pounds. AmazonBasics hangers are available in packs of 30 or 50.
