Common Reasons for Messy Closets - as part of the home & garden series by GeoBeats. Hi, my name is Julie Naylon, and I am a professional eco organizer at No Wire Hangers. The top reasons why closets get so messy is that nothing has a home. Everything in your closet should have a home and a place where it goes. If not, things are going to fall out of place and everything is going to become a mess. Another way to keep your closets organized is to do the one in, one out rule. When you buy a new pair of jeans, another pair of jeans should be on their way out the door. This will help you stay completely organized. You should only have clothes and things that belong in your closet. You should not have your kids' toys or anything else that is cluttering it up. It should be strictly clothes, purses, shoes and that is it. Another reason is all this plastic and wire hangers. It is one of the first things I do when I get to clients' home. No wire hangers, just like Joan Crawford said. This stuff is toxic and horrible for your clothes. Another reason why closets get so messy is they get overloaded with clothes that you think you might wear some day. The best solution is when you are purging your closet, is to try everything on because you do not know how it is going to look on you by just looking at it on the hanger.
