i was really organized when i lived at home - my mum's an architect to having a huge closet with all sorts of divisions was essential. but now i live in halls so i basically just shove everything in and shut the door really quickly. it's a nightmare to decide on what to wear!

Hi!

I organize my closet first by colour. All my clothes fit into five colour categories; jeans, printed or multicoloured (these are all mixed about two of following colours and also organized by that colour mix), white, red, grey and black in this same order. Jeans, multicoloured, whites and reds in upper rack and greys and blacks in lower one.

Second criteria is type. First sleeveless tops, short sleeve tops, long sleeve tops, shirts (also by sleeve lenght) and jackets. Then trousers (by lenght) and skirts. And finally dresses.

Third criteria is heaviness from lightest to heaviest. Although off-seasons all always last...

my closet in my dorm. it's TINY for the amount of clothes i have...but i managed to have everything neat and tidy and organized.

im thinking of documenting a digital form of my closet onto my computer. like take pics of every one of my garments and store them on my computer. instead of going through my closet to find outfits, i just go through my digital library and mix & match it on the computer, than i look for the pieces when i decide which pieces to take out. save energy and good way to keep the closet organized at all times.

my closet is organized by the garment types and the hangers are color cordinated as well.

the garments are in this order, from left to right, jackets/coats, dresses and long skirt, jeans and scarfs. on top, i have tops rolled up on both sides and all my short skirts are in the boxes.


half of my shoe collection is at the bottom of the closet, mostly boots


closeup of my rolled up tops. i find, by rolling your tops, it's easier to take out and store away, easier to manage as well.


i am by no means a super neat or organized person, but when it comes to my closet, i take good care of it. by having a neat closet, it saves alot of time trying to find things.

the digital thing you're talking about sounds like what alicia silverstone's character, cher, had in clueless

very cool

it's great that you manage to stay organized with such a small amount of space..
it can definitely be a challenge

I kind of throw everything on the floor. Eventually, I get to it!

But everything is color-coordinated, first by style (short-sleeve, tanks, sweaters) and then by color with white leading the pack.

Pretty simple.
Shoes stay by the door. Socks and underwear in a drawer. Easy.

Every once in a while I try to organize my closet by colour but that usually doesn't last longer than a week. I do like to have some sort of a system when it comes to different types of clothes, I put tops together, skirts together, dresses together, you get the idea

some pictures:

This is a sneak of my crazy closet. Most of my stuff is in suitcases somewhere in my closet and in other closets in the house. Others are in drawers. My fabric collection is on the right and mainly on the shelves that are in my closet in the right that you can't see in this picture. The bottom is like a mess, so I'm not even going to go there.

^^^ Oh wow, that's so perfectly neat. I'm kind of in love... My closet just has everything stuffed in, and everything's falling off hangers... It's a sign I have too much I think.

i always put the things i don't use away. it takes up too much room in the closet and i like that it's clear to see, what i got.

I only wish I were this neurotic. It makes everything so easy to find and looks so nice. I don't even dare post what my closet looks like because I'm sure some people would cry at how horrid it is.
