- Have you put it in the last months?
- How many times have you put it on?
- Do you stay for nostalgia?
- It's in good condition? And if you have any details wrong: can you fix it?

Tips to take advantage of your closet space
1. Uses boxes, baskets and various dividers
If you only have a hanging bar and a couple of drawers, the best way to take advantage of the space in your closet will be place certain pieces in boxes (of cloth, wood, cardboard or plastic). This will help you create, in some way, those drawers that are so lacking.
And why not make piles of clothes? because they tend to get rid easily and are not visually comfortable.
The long drawers can be used if we place boxes and internal dividers, in the same way that we would do with our makeup . In this way we will accommodate more pieces in the same space in the closet and in an organized way. These dividers are usually inexpensive and, in the case of those made of cloth or cardboard, can be moved without any difficulty.
2. Hang only what is necessary
Avoid resorting to hangers for everything since then you will occupy the entire bar and you will stop seeing what you have and what you do not. Try to distribute the pieces by size and frequency of use. And the most important: do not resort only to traditional hangers. There are also those that are multiple, that have several levels and can be used to place more pieces on the same perch.
3. Fabric hanging organizers
The best friends of the wardrove without shelves and with a single bar are hanging fabric organizers. These are excellent assistants when it comes to placing clothes in an organized way.
