Once you've successfully pared down your wardrobe to items that you truly love {and actually wear}, it's time to get it in order!
Here's a few tips to help in arranging items in such a way that not only pleases the eye, but also saves time when locating what you want easily and efficiently.

Group and hang similar items together.

Category divisions in drawers and on hanging rods could be as simple as:

  • Shirts
  • Skirts
  • Pants
  • Coats
  • Dresses

{via the container store}
If you like, organize even a little further within these basic categories:

  •  Long sleeve/Short sleeves
  • Casual/Dressy
  • by Color/Style

* Designate specific shelves or space for shoes and accessories.

* Hang clothes facing all the same direction.

* As a bonus, use one type and color of hanger.

Space Saving Tip:
Purchase hangers designed to hold multiple skirts/slacks:

 Time Saving Tip:

Keep open hangers collected on one side of bar.
When you remove an article of clothing, add the hanger it was on to that collection. This will saves time having to search for a hanger when putting clothes away AND it helps your closet to look nice and neat as well.
