It's about time you learn something from department stores. Such as how to organize your clothes in a way that makes you feel like you're shopping every time you walk into your closet.
In Shop Your Closet: The Ultimate Guide to Organizing Your Closet With Style (Collins; $19.95; paperback), Melanie Charlton Fascitelli teaches readers how to organize their closets according to their lifestyles. By following the 10 commandments of hanging -- No. 8 is "Thou Shalt Not Hang Thy Clothes with Strangers (hang shirts with shirts, skirts with skirts, etc.)" -- readers can avoid feeling overwhelmed when they look for something to wear.
The benefits, according to Fascitelli, are significant time and money savings, which far outweigh the discipline it takes to keep your closet in order.
The book offers suggestions on storing accessories, clothes and shoes and encompasses all kinds of closets from reach-ins and wardrobes to armoires. The tips can be applied to medicine cabinets, pantries and CD collections.
Other aspects of personal wardrobe maintenance covered are shopping, consigning and donating, which allow you to maintain order in your closet and life.
