What is the best way to organize your clothes?

Good question! To help you out, we caught up with Suzanne Roynon, Interiors Therapist and author of Welcome Home: How Stuff Makes or Breaks Your Relationship (sold at Amazon). "Start with the basic principle of only keeping the clothes you use, need, and love," says Suzanne. "Send them to a thrift store, or if you have plenty of time, sell online — just don’t keep them," she affirms. 

Then, you can get underway with organizing your collection. This should be personal and dependent on your lifestyle. "There is no ‘one size fits all’, so embrace your individuality not the floordrobe," she explains. "If you have a specific ‘work wardrobe’ and ‘leisurewear’ then keeping them separate in your closet will make getting ready for work easier." Here, you might consider using lidded clothes storage boxes. You might also apply her approach to your ordering of clothes storage containers, too, keeping your lesser-used or off-season items in vac bags, and more commonly worn items in storage boxes. As for occasional wear pieces, garment storage bags are key.
