Organizing a clothing closet can feel so overwhelming that many people never muster the courage to take the first step. While it can feel daunting to step into a small space filled with so much stuff with the goal of wrangling it all into its proper place, having a neat and organized closet is something that will make a seriously positive impact on your day to day life.

From helping keep your bedroom clean to making it easier to find what you need while you’re getting ready in the morning, the benefits of an organized closet are endless. 

While the process for getting your closet organized is pretty simple (empty it, sort it, make a place for everything and then put it all away) there are some tips and tricks that can make getting the organized closet of your dreams easier than you ever imagined.

Check out the tips and tricks below for helping you get (and keep) an organized closet!

1. Make time for a fashion show

An essential part of organizing a closet is clearing it out to ensure you only make space for the things you really want, need and wear. Instead of guessing as to whether an item really fits and flatters you as you are, make time for an at-home fashion show so you can get a peak (and a feel) for every item in your closet.

As a good rule of thumb, if you haven’t worn it this season you should at least put it on to make sure it still works before deciding that it belongs in the ‘keep’ pile. 

2. Get creative with bulky clothing

Sometimes our favorite, coziest items are also the toughest to store. While hanging shoe organizers are great for shoes and other accessories, they can also serve as an excellent place to store rolled sweaters and other bulky items that might stretch or pull if hung on a traditional hanger. 

3. Use clothing dividers!

Hanging clothing dividers are a great way to help keep you accountable as you strive to keep your closet as organized as it was on day one. Some people choose to divide their clothing by type while others prefer seasonal or setting specific dividers. Whatever you choose just be sure to stick to it!

4. Use your vertical space

Even the smallest closets often have more space that the average person realizes. While it’s important to maximize your shelf space and any hanging space you have in your closet, don’t forget about the back and side walls, the back of the door and the vertical sides of any closet organizers that have been installed.

These vertical spaces are great for storing shoes, hats, scarves and other small accessories. 

5. Make a seasonal plan

Most people have winter clothing and summer clothing along with a few pieces that they tend to wear year-round. While it can feel like a heavy lift to organize your closet more than once per year, making a quick switch to where your items are stored as the seasons shift will ensure your space is as accessible and usable as possible.

Whether you simply shift around your dividers and move seasonal items to the front of your closet or you totally move out-of-season items to another location, having a closet that reflects the season will help you feel organized and ready for the day!

  • How do the bags work?

    We use colored bags to differentiate services and make it easy for you to let us know what services you need. Set the bags out separately on your scheduled pickup day, and make sure they’re fully closed for transit to our facility. Please note that any overflow will be transferred into another 2ULaundry bag at the time of pickup and billed separately.

  • Can I request additional bags?

    Yes, to ensure your cleaning preferences are met, please place items in the correct bag for that service.

    If you do not have the correct bags or enough bags for your upcoming pickup, please contact Customer Care or request the additional bag through your Online Account. We’ll deliver one to your location free of charge. If we’re unable to deliver an additional bag in advance of your pickup, simply leave the items in a personal bag labeled with your name and the requested service(s).

  • How do I schedule a pickup?

    Your first pickup will be scheduled during the signup process.

    The easiest way to schedule additional pickups and modify an existing pickup schedule is through our mobile app, which you can download here.

    Not quite sure about the app? You can also schedule your next pickup by texting “PICKUP” to 588-15. We will send you a personalized scheduling calendar to easily schedule a pickup without logging in to your Account.

    For additional scheduling options, you can always contact Customer Care with your preferred date or schedule pickups through your Account online at www.2ULaundry.com.

    A few things to note: When using the App or Online Account, pickup requests, cleaning notes, and location updates, must be made by midnight the night before pickup. Our Customer Care Team can accommodate same-day requests up until 7am the morning of the requested pickup.

    Customers have the option to schedule one-time pickups on an as-needed basis or recurring weekly schedules for more consistent service. You will always receive a reminder text the night before your pickup, giving you the option to cancel or reschedule your pickup if needed. Please make sure the primary phone number on your account receives texts!
