Keep these tips in mind:

Segregate by convenience

Put the items that you regularly wear such as your go-to dress or corporate attire within eye-level. You may place the things that you do not wear often on the topmost level of your shelf. Make sure you place a sturdy stool inside your closet so you can easily reach for the items placed high above.

Use adjustable shelves

To accommodate your pieces with varying heights, you may opt for adjustable shelves. You can install these inside your cabinets then adjust them as you see fit. This works best if you have a separate cabinet for shoes and boots. Click here for additional storage ideas

Place small items in containers

Schedule a date for decluttering

Keep your closet tidy by scheduling a date when all you have to do is clean and organize your cabinets. Having a fixed schedule will encourage you to fix your room without feeling overwhelmed.

RL Tip: Create a schedule that works for you! Consider doing some decluttering either twice a month or every weekend. 

Create a sorting pile

Avoid filling your closet with stuff that you no longer need! The grouping: Keep, Repair, and Donate can do wonders! Have a container for each pile as well.

Prepare an inventory

Create an inventory of how many pairs of jeans, shirts, dresses, and shoes that you currently have. You can also specify the color and type of material! Doing this helps you keep track of your belongings while helping you save a lot of money (meaning: control your shopping expenses when you visit the mall).
