A Sneak Peek into the home of Professional Organizer Beth Brodsky of New York City, NY and owner of B ORGANIZED, LLC.
I've often wondered how those NYC chicas can fit all their fashionable togs in such small apartments... Now I know. Thanks to Beth for sharing her tips + tricks with my small-closeted readers. We appreciate you allowing us to lurk in your closet!
HER ORGANIZED SPACE: Main Clothing Closet
HER ORGANIZING TIPS:
1) Make sure that every item has its own home. You need a designated area to put jewelry, scarves, belts, bags, etc otherwise they will end up on the floor or hanging over the chaise lounge in your bedroom.
2) Do an analysis of items you use and wear most frequently and put them in easy to reach places. For example I am always accessorizing with necklaces, earrings, and bracelets so I like to see what I have instead of keeping it tucked away in boxes.
3) Use the vertical space in your closet – it is prime real estate!! Most rental apartments don’t have built in closet shelving so it becomes wasted space. Invest in shelving units to double the storage room in your closet.
4) Spend the money and buy nice hangers. Uniform hangers are the key to a neat looking closet.
HER ORGANIZING STYLE:
I wanted to have a whole dressing area with all the pieces I need to get ready in one place. Living in NYC this is no easy fete. I chose the items that I love and wear the most to stay in the closet (shoes and purses that I wear less often reside in another closet or in storage units under the bed). I was diligent about finding space in the closet for all the pieces I need to make a complete look (tops, skirts, pants, accessories, purses, and shoes) and made sure that all items have a specific place to go so that it is simple and fun to put items away at the end of the day. I love the way my closet looks, its like my own little private dressing room – since I am so happy with the aesthetics I am constantly wanting to upkeep and maintain it.
