What could be a better cure for a bad closet day than sorting? We’ll answer for you, nothing. Taking your time to carefully sort out clothes, shoes, bags, and so on is a great way to restore your closet to its former glory.
Just sorting your stuff into different categories is enough to quickly give your closet some breathing space. To further optimize this, sort your clothes using colors, type (gowns, plain tees, shirts, khakis, etc.), or even preference. Now, you can easily pick out that blue denim shirt when you need it.
2. Install Drawers
In the process of sorting, not every article of clothing can be hung on the bracket. To avoid getting stuck in this dilemma, install some clothe drawers in your closet. Think of them not as extra furniture but as the filing cabinet for your clothing.

Now, you can further organize your closet wardrobe by having sections of the drawers dedicated to various types of clothing, from tops to shorts to socks, everything with its home.
3. Folding Is Golden
There are moments when your drawers don’t seem like they’re up to the task of storing your items. If you find yourself in this situation, you’re probably not following the golden rule of owning a cloth drawer – folding.
See, you don’t just roll your clothes into balls and stuff them into the drawer. Instead, fold them into neat squares that fit in just right. This allows room for more of your clothes than you imagined. Also, your drawer looks neat, and anything you need can be picked out in a jiffy.
