Smart Closet Makeover

It’s time to clean out your closet! Project Smart Closet Makeover, begins NOW! There is definitely an order you must follow, so make sure you are taking notes or you have saved the steps below to your phone!

It is so important that you start your day with clarity; and the first thing you do in the morning, is get dressed… or at the very least pick out what you’re going to wear. So if your closet is a complete disaster – you can’t find things, there’s clothes everywhere, nothing is organized – you are starting your day off probably frustrated AND you are wasting time!

There are tools for this job. They are all optional, but they make a HUGE difference!

Matching hangers

I know this might not seem like a must…. but it is! I understand that this is an investment, but I personally believe that it is one worth making.

Huggable hangers

These will change your life! You can get these on Amazon. Count how many hangers you are currently using, reduce that by 25%, and that’s how many I’d suggest purchasing. I highly recommend buying the color nude. Here’s why. Because I know eventually you’re going to want these in every room in your house, and if you pick pink for your hangers, and blue for your partner, then it just becomes a mess. SO keep it simple and keep it nude.

Rolling hanging rack

This is a great investment! You will use this WAY more than you know! It keeps clothing off the floor and off the bed.

Hanging shoe rack

This is where your workout gear, scarves, and maybe socks will go. You might also want to get one of those hanging cubbies. It’s larger than the shoe rack and I love storing my sweats in these!

Here are the steps you need to follow! 

STEP 1: Count how many hangers you currently have in your closet.

STEP 2: Make a decision on what type of uniform hangers you are going to replace those hangers with.

STEP 3: Order rolling racks and hanging racks for inside the closet.

STEP 4: Schedule time to dedicate to cleaning out your closet – approximately 6 hours.

STEP 5: Listen to the podcast!

  1. I did leave you a voice message however I am not sure how good it was?!?

    Your podcasts – no matter what the subject is are the bomb!!!! I had never listened to podcasts until I started listening to yours. You are a part of my day- every single day I listen to at least one of your podcasts! If you have not done a new one I re listen to one that I have saved. You are an intrical part of my personal
    Growth. I have shared your podcasts as well
    As your Fb posts.

    Happy birthday. I know you love words of affirmation. I am certain you will receive tons !!


  2. Chalene… you have inspired me with just about every single piece of information you have given. Thank you. I am in process of regrouping my life again and organizing all the parts. THIS closet makeover was last weeks project and I have to say… I think I did well. (those packing cubes for traveling? THE BOMB!!)

    NOW…. the goal is to dig in to my MIA stuff again in the next 6 months and GET SOMETHING going there.
    It has been a very hard 2 years family situation wise but..the clouds are clearing and the sunshine is coming out again. Time for me to Dig Deep and MOVE FORWARD with my dreams.

    Happy Birthday… 🙂

  3. I’m doing this now because I scheduled it in my smart life push journal. I hired help. I’m committed to me and my lifestyle. You helped me get over the procrastination. Thank you❤

    I’m sharing your podcasts with my friends! Keep them coming.

  4. Chalene! This was JUST what I needed! I listened to Part I twice, and then Part II about 7 times as I was going through the process. No turning back! Thanks to you, Chalene, I was motivated, organized, decisive and a bit relentless in my sorting, donating and discarding. Your process was so fluid that I finished in a few hours, and removed bags of things from the closet, in addition to loads of other stuff I had ferreted away in there (files, papers, hiking gear, memorabilia). I can now see my work clothes clearly and can identify what pieces I need to pick up to complete a good professional wardrobe. My play clothes & workout clothes are separated, and my hiking and camping clothes all have their own drawers. SO STOKED. Thank you!!

  5. This was fabulous! I had already done the closet makeover but this still helped me take it a bit further! So helpful! All of your podcasts are. I am binging on your podcasts to get me back on track! I have been all over the place lately but you help me focus.
