i lost my favourite hat on a trip and cried a lot.
i used to arrange my clothes into type categories dresses, shirts, etc, and then subcategorize them into amount of flesh covered. then i had all my shoes into their boxes with a description tag that featured if they were assasins (if they made my feet hurt too much) but then i had to move to a very small apartment and i had to change it into the lengh that the clothes have when hanging- this way the really long will touch the closet ground and the short ones will leave an empty ground spot for me to place the folded items. but most of the times 45% of the clothes are laying around. i seem to be very messy but organized
sell crazy some place else, we're all stocked up here.
My tops are arranged my how dressy they are. I have my plain AA tanks and tees in the front, then the tops I could wear to class and so on. It makes life easier since I go straight to the section I need that day, I dont have to shuffle though every single piece. I separate the dresses, jackets, sweaters (although this is a big gap in my wardrobe), shorts/skirts (another gap) and jeans but I dont have so many that I need to arrange them in any particular way.
I'm terrible at organizing clothes. When I do it lasts for about a week or two then everything ends up in a pile on the floor or on a trunk I have while I'm going through outfits. It's the Pete Doherty method but it works for me!
^ As much as I'd like to call back, I think at this point my jacket is gone for good! I'm thinking it was lost on the way to my house, as you said, which is a scary thought considering it was sent from an island - could it have been lost in the Pacific Ocean?
Well, you could go diving for it. Maybe you'll be lucky and find out.
Oh yeah, I forgot to say, in the lowest drawer of my wardrobe I have all my bags and rucksacks etc. They're just stumbling around in there, stuffed upon each other and sometimes I'd have to dig one or the other clutch from waaaay back and almost cry If I can't find it.
The pictures and descriptions on here are so inspiring. I really need to work on my closet. But there't not much you can do in a college dorm room. I may post pictures at a later date, I like my closet, just not so much the pieces inside. =)

I also always check every surface, drawer, and closet right before I walk out the door
And I do the very same, though I rarely make use of the drawers and closets in the first place, which is why I find it so bizarre that my jacket went missing. I even remember peeking underneath the beds and chairs to ensure nothing had accidentally been kicked out of sight! Oh well - wherever my jacket is, I hope it is doing okay without me.
I've just moved back home to save up for a house (housemate went back home to save up to go back to uni) and I've since discovered that my clothes don't fit into my wardrobe at home anymore. I've got one old wardrobe in my room and another old wardrobe in the spare room and together the two still aren't big enough - currently there are clothes sitting on the mantelpiece waiting for a spot (I don't have room in my room for another wardrobe and when I get back from my overseas trip in late May I'm going to buy a chest of drawers, spot already earmarked for same). I was living out of home for some time and had built-in wardrobes and my wardrobe grew exponentially So now I'm off to the shops to get some thinner hangers - old wardrobes and new wooden hangers don't seem to mix - I can't even close the doors! So after I get some new hangers I'm going to be trawling through this thread for ideas on how to organise everything.
