One effective technique to organize your closet considers how you get ready to start your day. Think about how you sort through your wardrobe, what you’re looking for and how best to place different items so you can quickly and efficiently put together your outfit for work, play or evening.
Sort by color
Color can affect your mood and how you present yourself to the world. If your initial approach to putting together an outfit is to decide which color you are going to wear, try sorting your wardrobe based on a color-coded system. Separate clothes based on color using hanging space, shelving and bins for different color groups and shades.
Sort by how items are used
Some items in your closet may seldom see the light of day whereas others are used almost daily. Move those seldom-used or seasonal items to another area of your home like the garage, attic or storage pod. This will make open more space, so you can see and easily get to the clothing and items you use more often.
Sort by season and weather
For areas where the weather can change on a dime (like the San Francisco Bay Area when the fog rolls in overnight!), you might want to organize your wardrobe based on weather and temperature. One section could be for rainy and chilly days, while another section could be for warmer days.
