2. Designate a basket or hamper as "outgrown" or "donate", so when you decide to give something away, it's easy.

5. Store bulky items like sweaters in a vertical organizer to free up rod and drawer space.

6. Organize your belts using shower curtain rings (and if it works better for your closet, a curtain rod).

You can either book the rings directly onto your closet rod or mount a small curtain rod on your wall. See the tutorial on Live Simply By Annie.

7. Use an app like Stylebook to make it easy to remember everything you have.

You can save your favorite outfits and create packing lists with it, too. Get it from the Apple App store for $3.99.
