Organizing your closet is probably one of the tasks you find challenging. After all, you take out clothes every day. Sometimes, before you know it, your closet is back to its messy state. Keep this from happening with these simple tips:

1. If you have enough space for a walk-in closet, create shelves for your shoes and bags.

Line up your shoes, sorting them according to kind. Do the same for your bags if you have a lot of them. Then, put sufficient lighting so you can see everything in one glance. 

2. Create cubby holes in your closet to accommodate folded clothes.

One problem in storing folded clothes in your closet is that the pile sometimes collapses. Keep this from happening by building cubby holes in your closet that can accommodate one pile. This way, your closet will look more organized and neat.

3. Group your clothes by color.

This is best done if you have a lot of clothes that sport a particular color. This trick can also help you make your closet look neat and polished. Make sure your closet has enough shelves for your shoes and bags as well as drawers for your underwear. 

4. Allot an entire shelf for your shoes.

If you're a shoe-a-holic, dedicate an entire storage spot for your beloved pairs. This is better than keeping them in boxes that you will just pile on a corner. Dust them regularly to keep your shoes in mint condition. 

5. Allot a separate space for your everyday basics.

To make it easier for you to get ready in the morning, allot a separate storage for the things you wear and use every day. This way, you won't have to rummage through your closet daily, cutting down prep time while keeping your main closet spic-and-span.
