1. Choosing the wrong types of hangers
It is important to opt for quality hangers to prevent your clothes from deforming, slipping, or getting damaged. Choose lightweight and non-slip felt hangers for silk shirts and sturdy wooden hangers for coats. Also, make sure to use a specific hanger for your suits.
2. Hanging wool or cashmere sweaters
Instead of risking damaging your cozy sweaters by hanging them, fold them and store them in storage boxes or cotton canvas closet organizers designed specifically for this purpose.
3. Improperly hanging dress pants
To properly maintain your dress pants before wearing them for an evening or an important date, consider hanging them vertically by the waist with double-clip hangers. Another solution is to use bubble wrap to prevent wrinkles and creases.

4. Poorly organizing underwear
To preserve the shape and elasticity of these beautiful feminine pieces, it is better to store them flat rather than folding them in half or rolling them into a ball. So avoid this bad habit and don’t randomly stuff them in your drawers.
5. Ignoring unworn clothes
Did you know that you generally only wear 20% of your clothes 80% of the time? To optimize your wardrobe, showcase your favorite outfits and try the reverse hanger technique: turn the hook in the opposite direction each time you wear a garment, to clearly identify those that you don’t wear.
6. Mixing seasons without washing
Avoid mixing dusty and dirty winter coats with light summer shirts that smell like laundry! So take the time to wash all your clothes according to their season before storing them to find them in perfect condition for the next season.
7. Storing clothes in plastic covers
Your beautiful clothes should not suffocate under plastic covers that promote moisture and mold. Therefore, remember to remove your clothes from these packaging after each dry cleaning.
8. Accumulating unused clothes
Instead of piling up a mountain of disorganized and, worse, unused clothes, consider donating before buying new pieces. This will help you maintain a functional and minimalist wardrobe.
9. Not folding clothes properly
To avoid wasting time frantically searching for a specific garment in the morning, adopt the KonMari method: fold and store your clothes like files to gain visibility, save time, and make better use of space.
10. Neglecting regular maintenance
To keep your clothes in good condition for longer, it is essential to maintain them regularly. Pay attention to stains and treat them promptly, repair loose hems, and make sure to follow the care instructions on the labels. A little preventive maintenance can prevent big problems in the future.
In conclusion, there is nothing better than good organization tips to ensure an orderly and zen interior! By avoiding these mistakes and following these simple tips, you will contribute to better organizing your wardrobe and to a more practical and minimalist life.
