On the top rack are my bottoms and they are organized by length and types of bottoms, like shorts/capris/khakis/denim. On the bottom rack are my shirts and they are organized by sleeve length and types of shirts: spaghetti strap/thicker straps/vest/short sleeve t-shirts/short sleeve sweaters/long sleeve shirts/thick sweaters/thick sweaters/etc. I have my dresses/skirts, shoes, and Jackets/coats arranged the same way.

Don't worry, I doubt anything can surpass my closest in terms of downright messiness. (Reference.) And if yours does, then I applaud you.

i am extremely neurotic and i categorize and color/shade my closet completely. i subdivide into sections and do a color pattern of dark-light and then reverse the color pattern to transition to the next subdivision of the closet.

*in the cold weather section I keep all my long-sleeved stuff: hoodies, cardigans, jackets (in that order)
*then i have my tops section: sweaters, collared shirts, t-shirts, "going out" shirts, vests
*in the bottoms section I subdivide into jeans, other pants, shorts, skirts
*the rest of my hanging closet is for dresses (because lord knows that's my weakness..)
*..and the rest of my clothes are loungewear (PJ's, sweats, workout shirts, etc) so they stay in drawers.

I keep my shoes and purses in cabinets in my main room--they are my trophies, so why hide them?!

Some stuff is at my parent's place, the other at my place. I just SHOVE it in the closet on hangers and I have some sort of IKEA dividers for all the underwear and socks and some accessories. Shoes are all over the place, like at the front door or in my own closet.

And since I am lazy as hell, I just throw my stuff on my bed/chair/floor whenever I get home.

Man, some closets in this thread are so neat......

Well actually, I try to sort my things out like 2-3 times a year, but after a week it ends up being a major mess....... And I don't actually have lots of stuff cause I throw a lot away (as soon as the color starts fading or I just give it to my best friend).

Pictures of my closet:
I like to first throw my clothing on the floor like one of the post above, . (I have so many clothes it's hard to put them away all at once.) So then I press off my jeans, pants, and blouses. I then hang my jeans in my closet along with my blouses, shirts, jackets, etc. I also like to keep my shoe boxes, the heels go up top and inside or on top of there original boxes (so I know which ones are which), then some of my shoes go on the floor of my closet along with there boxes. Also my sneakers get piled on top of eachother (I also have a lot of sneakers, some I don't even wear!) and then some of my shoes that I wore recently just get thrown near my door. Then the other side of my closet holds my prom dress, grad gown, etc. (I need to clean that side out.)

How do you organize your closet?
Not sure which section this goes in so I figured this would probably do.

A few weeks ago I remember seeing a thing on telly - I'm in Ireland and have NTL digital so it could have been on any English/Irish chanel. Anyway, it was about a woman who offers a wardrobe sorting out service and who has clients that are quite wealthy but is now also helping regular people.

The article saw her with a helper photographing shoes and folding up cashmere jumpers and then they spoke to the clients, one of whom was reasonably famous (but not so much that I remember who it was) who said she couldn't live without her.

Anyway, this woman has a website and on it you can buy a wardrobe organisation starter kit and some great looking shoe boxes etc and I'm desperately trying to find out what the URL is - can anyone help????

Hope that helps

I have two closets - the first I stash outerwear, boots, laundry, and whatever I can shove into those hanging makeshift mini shelves (shoes, hats, clutches, accessories.) The second closet, I hang blouses, dresses, oxfords, denim, suits etc - the right hand shelving unit is for sweaters and long sleeve knits, underneath is a small lingerie chest, on the floor are totes filled with sweatshirts and gym clothes, skirts and shorts, etc - stacked in the woven totes above hanging rod are three tote, each filled with scarves, handbags, and belts.

I don't really know where to start, in terms of pointing things out. My closet sort of occupies my entire room; the items on the left are all pieces that I wear on a daily basis but have yet to hang up. In my actual closet, you can see heavy coats on the left; Disneyland memorabilia in the center; pajamas on the floor; and more Disneyland memorabilia on the bottom left.
Actually, it looks like a fashion editorial (hope that makes sense).

I have an armoire, a chest and some extra racks (all from Ikea). My clothes are organized by section, season and color.
