Stuck with a teeny-tiny closet in your apartment? Stick with these six steps and your small closet will feel like a walk-in.

First, De-Clutter
with Love/Keep/Give Away
Now is a good time to reduce the volume of clothing, shoes, and other items in your closet. Make three piles: "Love," "Keep" and "Give Away." Items in the "Love" pile are pieces of clothing you adore and fit you well. The "Keep" pile should be filled with items you like or need but don't wear as frequently. Divide the items in your "Keep" pile into seasonal piles. You can box and store off-season clothing under your bed or in another location. At the end of the ,you'll donate items in your "Give Away" pile to your favorite charity.
