This clutter-free approach is the first step to ensuring that the small closet is enough to serve your needs. Move away the clothes, hats and accessories that you feel are not ‘season appropriate’. Stick to what you plan to use in the next couple of months let other wardrobe items be stored away neatly elsewhere. If you need more space for shirts than trousers or want to dedicate a couple of shelves for footwear, then plan for them before you settle on a design.
