1. If you have an open closet, make it pretty by organizing your clothes by color.

This allows your closet not to be such an eyesore and will save you time when finding the perfect outfit in the morning!

2. But if you have closet doors, utilize them to their full potential.


It's important to utilize every single corner of your closet, and your door is no exception! You can purchase beautiful (and practical) mats for hanging jewelry or simply hammer in a few nails to add instant storage for any small items.

3. Use the hanger trick to figure out which clothes you should donate.

At the start of the year, face all your hangers out. After you wear something, put it back in your closet, but reverse the direction of your hangers. At the end of the year, whichever hangers are still facing outward, donate the shirts attached!

4. Take advantage of your tall closet by putting in an inexpensive bookshelf. Maegan / CC BY http://2.0 / Via Flickr: lovemaegan

A lot of times closets are extremely tall, but most people don't take advantage of that extra space. To solve that, purchase an inexpensive bookshelf to utilize the space and get things you rarely use out of the way.

5. Get your heels out of the way by installing inexpensive crown molding!

Who knew crown molding could be beautiful and practical? Just install on the inside of your closet to easily hang any shoe with a heel!

6. Store your jewelry on hangers with your clothes.

Talk about two birds with one stone! Pair your jewelry and clothes beforehand by hanging everything together. That way, you can just pull them out of your closet, and your entire look is ready to go!

7. Use tabs from soda cans to double your storage space!

Just use an ordinary soda can tab, loop it around a hanger hook, and literally double the amount of hanger space you have in your closet!

8. Create an inexpensive scarf organizer with shower curtain rings!


All you need is one hanger, a ton of cheap shower rings, and you have an inexpensive and space-saving scarf organizer to hang in your closet. It's great for ties as well!

9. Use DOTW hanging labels to sort out your kids' clothes for the week.


These awesome labels allow you to plan ahead and organize your kids' clothes for the whole week. Great way to save you time in the morning and one less thing to think about!

10. Install towel racks to hang smaller items.

Just because it's called a towel rack doesn't mean that's all it's good for! Install a few in your closet to hang items that don't necessarily need to take up valuable hanger space.

11. Use removable chalkboard labels to keep everything organized.


These chalkboard labels are perfect for labeling shelves/containers in your closet, and the chalkboard gives you the freedom to change the labels every time you organize!
