Along with the sun and warm breezes of Autumn comes the not-so-awesomeness of autumn cleaning. If you’re planning to tackle some cleaning projects this weekend, here’s how to organize the closet of your dreams in simple steps.

1.Empty and clean your closet.

Once you’ve made separate “donation” and “keep” piles for your clothes, throw blankets, and accessories, give your closet a once-over and pull out anything else still lingering inside it.When nothing remains,give your closet a proper deep-clean. Vacuum the area rugs, wipe down the shelves, and scrub any scuff marks or dirt off the walls.

2.Design your ideal closet space

Get creative to work with what you have. Take note of your closet’s best features: vertical storage space, built-in shelving,multiple hanging rods.Used a hanging organizer to store t-shirts, and large foldable bins to store beach clothes, bathing suits, and hats.

3.Store your clothes by category.

Keep like items with like items. Store all your belts in the same spot, hang your dresses alongside each other, and keep your workout shirts separate from your pajamas.

4.Roll up or stack thick items like throw blankets.

Save yourself precious drawer and hanging space by stacking or rolling up throw blankets. These items make perfect stacks for your shelf space because they’re sturdy and thick, meaning they won’t slump, crinkle, or lose their shape when you stack them.Not only that, you’ll be able to see each throw blanket in each bracket clearly, making it that much easier to find what you’re looking for.

5.Start by putting the items you use the frequently up on the shelves

As the weather gets colder,bulky items, like you daughter's flamingo blanket,or duvets can put on the middle of the closet,which is easy to take.Also,put your summer clothes like T-shirt and dresses on the bottom of the closet.

6.Try not to stuff the shelves tightly.

Not only will this encourage wrinkling and reduce much-needed airflow around the fabric, but it will also make it that much harder for you to pull out needed items without yanking out everything on the shelf.
