Wardrobe Organization Tips & Strategies – Part Two – Displaying and Organizing

In Part One – Decluttering and Getting Rid of Stuff, this is Part Two: Displaying and Organizing your stuff

Organize by Categories and by Colour

I do this hands down.

I sort all my clothes in this order:


  • Spaghetti strap tops
  • Tank tops
  • T-shirts
  • Long-sleeved Shirts
  • Button-up Shirts
  • Turtlenecks


  • Shawl Blazers
  • Classic Blazers
  • Short jackets – trench, etc


  • Jeans
  • Wool trousers
  • Silk / linen trousers


  • Long maxi dresses
  • Shorter dresses


  • Long skirts
  • Shorter skirts

…and all in the colour of the rainbow in each category and sub-category:

Whites, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, brown, grey, black

Hang everything except sweaters and jeans

I again, do this. I don’t hang sweaters because you can have them go out of shape on the hanger, so I roll them, or fold them.

I hang EVERYTHING ELSE because then I can see it. If I fold it, forget it. I won’t see it, and I won’t wear it.

I would hang jeans too but I have no hanger space, so they get folded. I don’t own too many jeans (under 7 pairs), so they are manageable like this.

Fold and roll items that you don’t want to get out of shape

For what I do fold and roll, I stack them nicely, and I roll things like sweaters on top of each other so I can see the colours and so on.

Turn your rolled up pants, leggings and sweaters on their sides facing up

I learned this from Marie Kondo and it has changed my life. I used to roll leggings and stack them on top of each other, but turning them right-side up has changed the ballgame completely.

I can now see the EXACT pair of leggings I want, rolled and on its side.

You can see how it is done here, on Abby Lawson’s blog.

Fold all of your underwear

I used to just toss them all in the drawer and get annoyed. Now I fold them nicely, and roll them into little neat rows to grab when I go without disturbing the rest of my underwear drawer.

What do you do?
