1. First, if you know you're going to toss some stuff, solicit a *critical* friend (who's got your back!) for opinions on what's worth keeping in your closet.
2. And while you're organizing, unearth the stuff you forgot about and put it back into your rotation by logging it in Finery. You can even create looks with them for a major comeback!
3. Starting from scratch? Buy a closet organizing system for some bones to build upon for your specific needs.
4. Mount motion sensor lights in there to see all your organizing prowess, because that creepy bare bulb is not pulling its weight for differentiating between your two denim jackets.
5. Ditch your sliding closet doors for some curtains so you can access everything with ease.
6. No matter your space or wardrobe size, sort by color AND type of garment so your blue dresses are together and your black jackets are together bc you most likely know which type of garment you want and then which color.
7. If you can, switch out your clothes when the seasons change so it's easier to find the stuff suited for current weather conditions.
8. Fill that dead space below your tops with a closet doubler that does exactly what its name says.
9. And use any empty space above regular reaching height with a pull-down closet rod for all of your out-of-season or less-used stuff.
10. Say goodbye to an avalanche of folded sweaters or jeans thanks to ThreadStax. (We know your pain. Every other closet-organizing story says to stack them, but you can't keep them tidy!)
11. And get the *perfect* fold with an OG clothing folding tool if you're aiming for the utmost perfection.
12. Do what you must to hang up the things you need to hang up, like doubling up regular old hangers with a soda tab when you need more space ASAP.
13. Make stuff stay put — lest a shirt fall off the hook and you don't find it until six months from now — with huggable hangers.
