All of my shirts are organized by sleeve length. I have always done this - we go from spaghetti strap all the way to long sleeve. I only have about 6 more boxes of clothes to go through and hang up (or donate).
This is to the right of the door. Can you tell I'm not big on dresses? The canvas hanger organizes my earrings and bracelets.
My shoes are to the far right. They started out as organized by color but I have way more shoes that room, so that didn't last long. It's better than it was though.
It's hard to see all of my black shoes up there. I have more shoes on top. I ran out of room and have two totes of shoes sitting in the office, waiting for a home. I have some of my necklaces hung up on a coffee mug hanger I found at Wal-Mart for $5. I had them seperated by color but I started running out of room. Then, I found a bunch more necklaces that I need to hang so I'm looking for another solution. I'm thinking something along these lines, but much longer. Maybe I make something really cute to hang in my closet?
Hmm, the possibilities!
