How to Organise a Closet in 5 Steps
The first step to efficiently organize your closet is ensure you have the right tools and supplies on hand. Have the following ready-to-go before you begin: 要有效率的整理你的衣櫃的第一步，那你就要確定你有正確的工具在手上。在開始前先準備好以下立刻可以用的東西：
- Shopping Bags(結實的袋子可以丟東西或裝要捐出去的東西): Sturdy bags to transport clothes to the donation center, tailor and dry cleaner. If you don't have bags, boxes and bins will do in a pinch.
- Tape Measure(捲尺): To measure shelving and hanging space. Don't forget a notebook and the writing utensil of your choice to jot down your closet's measurements.
- Full-Length Mirror(全身鏡): In order to decide between "toss" and "keep," make sure your mirror can accommodate your entire image.
- Catch All Basket(萬用盒): Loose change, papers, rubber bands, hair clips, wads of cash (score!) and assorted receipts you'll find in pants pockets. You don't want to have to stop in the middle to file these small items so just put them aside for now into your catch all basket.
Gathering these items before you begin will allow you to *hit the ground running and you'll be ready to dive into cleaning out your closet. 把這些東西準備好，你就旗開得勝囉，可以跳入衣櫃中大整特整囉！
註：hit the ground running->美國俚語，沒有對應的中文成語翻譯，只能勉強說它指的是「因為做好萬全的準備所以一就位就可以快馬加鞭的開始工作」（或你要勉強翻成「好的開始是成功的一半」也可以）。
