Stagger your shoes. You can fit more shoes on your shoe self if you stagger them. Face one shoe toe to the front and the matching pair to the back.
Organize by outfit not by type. We tend to organize our closet by color or type. However doing this may cause you to be overwhelmed; or you may not realize exactly what you have in your closet. The beautifully adorned navy blue laced blouse can easily get stuck in between two cotton shirts. Organizing by outfit can also assist you in visualizing different fashion options.

When in doubt let it go. When cleaning your closet, go through each item. Think, does it fit? Do I love it? Is this the image I’m trying to project? If the answer to all these questions is yes…Keep it! If not let it go. Try placing a small laundry basket in your closet. Label it “give away.” Every time you try on an item of clothing that doesn’t work for you put it in the basket. At the end of each month review your “give away” basket. separate clothes into two piles sell and donate. This is a super simple way to edit your closet each month.
