Closet Organization 101

The key to organizing your closet is to group like items together.  Group your shirts, T-shirts, pants, dresses, etc. together and assign a section for each.  Some like to organize that further by color...I personally don't have enough clothes in all the colors of the rainbow to do that (plus, I would probably have trouble maintaining that).

For a more organized look, use the same type of hanger and hang in the same direction.  Try not to use the dry cleaner metal hangers.

Okay, we got the clothes organized but what about all the other stuff we dump in our closets?  I, for instance, had these other items:

-picture frames
-hair accessories
-note cards
-Christmas gift boxes
-crafting stuff
-and more...

Group like items and get some wicker baskets or some pretty storage boxes or both.  Next, sort each group into a specific container.  Also, as you sort things, purge things you no longer need or like.  Please donate these to your local thrift store or recycle them.  Now, perch the rest back on the shelves and you're done!  Here's the final result:

Happy closet organizing!
