So, in that vein, here are 4 quick tips for improving your closet that can be done in one day or less.
1) Color code your clothing. No matter if it's in baskets or on hangers, it is much easier to get dressed when your clothes are together by color. Does not matter the season, just the color. So, hang all those red shirts together, all those brown pants and skirts together, etc. When you step into your closet, you can find the row of brown bottoms and match them up with the perfect red shaded top!
2) Replace Plastic/Store Hangers with Non-Slip Hangers Small as it seems, these velvet non-slip hangers make all of the difference in the world. You can go crazy and get different colors for different types of clothing or just get one color for ease of use/re-use. I like this style, but there are many out there to choose from.
By the way, you can donate those plastic hangers to a thrift store or to your local church to use for flea markets - they appreciate it and you do not fill the landfills with more plastic.
3) Store Shoes by season and color Just as I discussed above the need for color sorted clothing, you need to do the same with shoes. All brown shoes, not matter the season, put into on row, same with red, blue and even sneakers (which some may need a closet all to itself!). As an organizer, I know that shoes are the hardest thing to sort and store, so you need an easy system - trust me - color works! If you don't have that fancy shoe cubby system, consider something that hangs over the door.

All of these things can be done in one day or less - you can even do the Purge one bag at a time for an hour. All of this adds up to making your life easier, everyday.
