[StayHomeMUJI] Wardrobe Organization
Weekend Spent Organizing Wardrobe
Once in 6-month time, I will do ‘Dansyari (断捨離)’ of clothes – a Japanese expression to describe the action of getting rid of physical and mental clutter as a way to simplify life.
How to do it?
Step 1: Categorize
Take out all the clothes from your wardrobe, and sort them into the following categories:
- Keep (Your favourites, or clothes that you will continue to wear / frequently worn)
- Throw (Damaged or in unwearable condition)
- Recycle / Reuse (Clothes that are still in wearable condition, but will not want to wear anymore)
Step 2: Organize
After sorting, it’s time to organize the clothes that you want to “Keep” by their usage and purpose, and prepare appropriate storage boxes for them. Below are my recommendation using MUJI products:
- PP Boxes: Clothes
- ½ PP File Box: Innerwear
- Cotton Linen Box: Towels
- PP Box (25cm): Others (e.g. health care items)
Choice of Hangers:
While organizing, I wanted to keep my clothes organized like the ones in MUJI store. Hence, I’ve bought the “Birch Thin Hanger 3pcs Set”. I am only using this hanger inside the wardrobe. As for external usage, I am using PP or Aluminium type hangers.
- Internal = use it in the room/closet.
- External = use it for drying
Aluminum and PP thin hangers are good for drying as they are cheap, light, and durable.
Wooden hangers have a thickness, so they are good to keep clothes in shape, while some wooden hangers has deodorizing effect.
Tip! Try using slotting method for an even tidier storage.
