If you’d like a few more minutes in the morning to read the last few pages of your company report, or peruse the headlines on your tablet then get your closet organized.
Getting organized can save time in the morning and insure that you’re on time and looking smart.
A man’s wardrobe consists, for the most part, of suits, shirts, ties, jackets, sweaters and casual ware. Males don’t deal with the lengths and variety typical of your feminine counterpart. But the first rule applies to women and men—get rid of what you don’t need.
Here are the six rules of getting organized:
- Rule one—Throw it out if you can’t, won’t or shouldn’t wear it. There are numerous charities that could use the clothes cluttering your closet.
- Rule two— Remove belts from slacks. Leaving them there can stretch the garments out of shape. Belts belong on a belt rack just as ties belong on a tie rack. Never leave your ties around the neck of a shirt. Ties need a chance for the wrinkles to fall out by being placed on a necktie rack.
- Rule three—Categorize. Keep similar items together. Hang dress shirts together, sport coats with blazers.
- Rule four—Invest in closet organizers. You might want to invest in extra closet space with things like shelves, shoe organizers and multi-tiered hangers.
- Rule five—Make accessories visible. Invest in a tie rack that will make your collection easy to see and choose.
- Rule six—Place shoes side-by-side. Untie and tuck your laces for a neat appearance.
If you need a little additional space so that you can space your clothes you need a necktie rack that is compact and yet efficient. The Necktie Butler gives you an easy to use tie rack that also uses very little space.
