First, you should fold the clothes vertically to help you see your clothes at one glance. Naturally, there are also clothes that need to be hung up, such as dresses and coats. Next, make sure you organize your closet so it rises to the right, meaning the long, heavy items are on the left, and the ligher and shorter items are on the right side. As for organizing little baubles, make good use of shoeboxes to store them in. And as for bigger items like bags, store them inside bags to take up less space.
