1. Win­ter items are rarely used, so pack and ar­range them on the top shelf in boxes. 2. Bulky items such as bags and boots, as well as less-worn items, should also be stowed in the over­head shelf. 3. Longer length items need a higher hang­ing space, so del­e­gate a tall rack for your midi skirts, dresses and trousers. 4. Match your hang­ers, so it looks less clut­tered and fran­tic. 5. Closet de­hu­mid­i­fiers eliminate odour and pro­long fab­ric life. 6. Do not cram jack­ets and shirts to­gether. Rather, hang them with a 1-cm gap in be­tween to avoid creas­ing. And what­ever you do, never hang more than one ar­ti­cle of cloth­ing on each hanger. 7. Dis­play your shoes on sloped shelves, and don’t for­get to air your shoes be­fore putting them back into the closet. 8. Knits and sweaters should not be hung on hang­ers. In­stead, fold them and store them neatly in a pile. 9. Mini stor­age shelves are a great in­vest­ment to help keep your jew­ellery neatly stored. 10. Sun­glasses, coiled belts and scarves should be kept in a shal­low drawer, so you get a bird’s-eye view of ev­ery­thing you have. 11. Al­lo­cate this drawer for your py­ja­mas, un­der­wear and socks, and use a drawer di­vider to keep them all sep­a­rate. 12. Cloth tote bags can be placed in the bot­tom drawer, so they re­main neat and un­crum­pled.
