Fancy hangers, stacking shelves, and over-the-door racks are all marvelous for keeping your closet in order. But the absolute simplest way to keep track of your duds is to create a system for sorting your wardrobe: Organize your clothing …
Keep shorter skirts together, longer skirts together. Keep cardigans in one spot, pullovers in another. Keep long-sleeved dresses together, short-sleeved dresses together, and sleeveless dresses together. This system is helpful for those who build outfits on the fly: If the ensemble requires a miniskirt, you know just where to look.

I have mentioned many, many, MANY times that I daydream about California Closets. Oh, how I long to pay someone thousands of dollars to make my wardrobe look like an organizatrix’s dream. But until then, I’ll stick to my nearly-free techniques for keeping my wardrobe looking shiny and new:
Put rolled magazines inside your tall boots: Forget spendy boot-shapers. Keep those knee-high boots looking new by rolling up old mags or catalogs and sticking them in the shaft.
Learn to fold your sweaters: You love your sweaters, don’t you? Well, then, act like it! The folks at the Gap fold that way because it looks good, but it also minimizes wrinkling and creasing. Here’s my preferred method.
