How to organize clothes

My husband & I tend to organize clothes differently (causing chaos in our closets), but we've come to a nice compromise. The following setup works pretty well. Note: We both wash & put away laundry.

Short Answer: Label everything!

Long Answer:

1) We utilized Closet Organizing Dividers and sorted clothes like so.

**My closet**
Robes
Short Sleeve Tops
Long Sleeve Tops
Dress Pants
Casual Pants
Short Dresses
Long Dresses

**His Closet**
Robes
Work
Casual
Warm
Home Only

2) We labeled all available shelves the way we wanted clothes put away. (For example, top shelf Pajama Pants and bottom shelf Jeans)

3) Last, but not least, we utilized plastic drawers. Drawers are great for storing socks, underwear, and other small items.

Morale of the story: Don't expect your spouse to be psychic! Remove all doubt by labeling your storage areas :-)
