Savvy storage boxes with handles are basically made for out-of-season clothes stacked above your clothing rod. Because the higher you go, the more space you can add (just don't forget to invest in a safe step stool).
If you put a mirror in your closet, you don't have to take your clothes out to examine your outfit. So you're much more likely to put items back on the rack immediately after deciding they didn't make the cut.
Instead of devoting a hanger to each of your scarfs (or worse, knotting multiples on one and causing major wrinkles), use shower rings to create individual holders for your entire collection.
Don't lose your hamper under your hanging clothes — stash it on a hook on the back of your closet door instead. This way, you'll know right away when it's time to throw in a load.
