Use Proper Hangers
Proper clothing care calls for appropriate hangers: satin padding for more delicate items and sturdy wood hangers for tailored jackets.
Mount a Pegboard
Pegboard mounted inside a closet door creates an inexpensive mini-dressing station.
Stack Shoe Boxes
Slim plastic shoe boxes stack compactly, while hanging canvas shelves offer an inexpensive alternative to built-ins

I like how they always show ZERO clothes. Let's be realistic with how many items are required for a clothes closet. And let's talk color, seasonal, and so much more.

I'm with Nohair on this one. The pictures are great examples but in real life ... not so much. I move my short sleeved shirts nearer to the door when the weather warms up for good; wash & hang the long sleeved ones at the far end of the bar until next winter. Pants go on the lower bar because they won't go down as far as the floor so there's room underneath for shoes. That's the extent of my organizing. I have about 20% of the Master Closet, my lovely bride has the other 80% and the other 2 closets in the other bedrooms. Can anyone say, "Yard sale?"
