My mother taught me to hang my clothes by color and I'm passing the tip on to you. That only goes to show it's an oldie but goodie closet tip.

There's three things that absolutely keep my closet NEAT:

  1. Everything is put on a hanger the minute I take it off.
  2. I hang my clothing by color, sleeve length + length of garment within the color way.
  3. I use all the same hangers.

Today's tip from our experts and favorite girls at NEAT Method: "Color coding your clothes makes a world of difference when you are trying to find a particular item. We follow the Roy G. Biv rule: White, pink, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet, brown, grey, black."
