If your closet looks like a tornado just hit it, then it may be time for you to learn how to organize your closet more effectively.

However, one thing that has brought me peace through my closet organization journey is taking a more minimalistic approach to my organizational efforts. Here are four tips for organizing your closet in a minimalist fashion.

Top things to know about organizing your closet:

  • Shelf-dividers are an essential part of closet organization.

  • Everything you’re organizing should have a dedicated home in your closet.
  • Schedule decluttering months in your home to help keep the number of things you have at a minimum.

If your closet looks like a tornado just hit it, then it may be time for you to learn how to organize your closet more effectively. If you are anything like me, the last thing you want is to clean up your clutter by adding multiple bins, totes, and organizers—this is what I call organized clutter. However, one thing that has brought me peace through my closet organization journey is taking a more minimalistic approach to my organizational efforts. Here are four tips for organizing your closet in a minimalist fashion.

Divide and conquer your closet (literally) by incorporating the use of shelf dividers.

If more shelving isn't in the cards for you, then utilizing shelf dividers will be an essential closet organization tool for your clean-up.

Shelf organizers are perfect for storing similar items, creating a clean closet aesthetic, and making more storage in a smaller space. I recommend using a divider set that features an open mesh design—this will allow you to see through them while keeping an eye on the overall organization of your closet.

Maximize the amount of space in your closet by switching to velvet hangers.

Velvet hangers have a slim profile that allows you to use the maximum closet space available.

Aside from their posh and uniformed look, their gentle shoulder contour helps reduce clothing bumps, creases, and slipping, and they are constructed with strong hooks wide enough to fit over standard closet rods. I love velvet hangers because they are non-slip, and their ergonomic design of the shoulders helps to hang items with straps. One of my favorite parts is that the 360 swivel hooks on the hangers allow you to turn around your clothes while they are hanging to make sure all of your clothing faces the same way—leaving your closet looking neat and tidy.

Make sure everything you want to organize (shoes, purses, jewelry, etc.) has a dedicated home in your closet.

Think of your closet as the ultimate place for you to show your organizational skills!

Wall and drawer organizers will transform your space and keep all your clothing and accessories in one place. Organizational drawer units take up minimal space and can be designed for your taste, while wall attachments save space and add depth to your closet while freeing up much-needed floor space. Having your cherished belongings in one place will also help organize other rooms in your home and reduce overall home clutter.

Reduce the number of items in your home by decluttering every so often.

In my home, we use the "have you needed this item in the last six months?" rule; if the answer is yes, we keep the item and find a place for it. However, if the answer is no, we will donate. You can also apply this rule to your closet organization project. That skirt from college back in 2011 that you haven't worn? Ditch it! Those platform shoes that have yet to see the light of day? Tell them goodbye! A minimalist-inspired organization project isn't just about shifting items around; it's about keeping the things you need to have a healthy and happy lifestyle. For this organization process to truly work, you will have to say goodbye to the old and hello to the new, organized you.

Now that you have four tips on leading your closet organization like a pro, you'll never have to walk through piles of clothing and shoes to start your day again.

This set of 50 velvet hangers from Songmics can hold up to 11 pounds each allowing you to make the most of your closet space.
