Luckily I got to back to the land of the sun for thanksgiving! I loved being back even though it was only for four days. While I was there, I saw UAE preparing for National Day and it seems like the preparations and decor are in full gear!

Organizing: Closets - Helpful Tips & Strategies - Part 1

With winter around the corner, the dropping temperatures creates for more indoor activities. It also makes for the perfect time to stay in a couple hours and organize things around the house. 

There's nothing like an organized closest, so here are a few tips and strategies from the industry's professionals for organizing your closet. Today we focus on how to organize folded and hung clothes so that finding and enjoying them are way easier!

Strategy: Folding Clothes
If you prefer to fold your clothes or have a lot of clothing that is best stored folded, Meryl Starr, a professional organizer in New York and author ofThe Organizing Workbook, recommends these tips for folding clothes within your closet.

- Shelves should be about 12 inches deep, roughly the
depth of a stack of clothes. You don't want a lot of
wasted space in front or behind.

- Ventilated shelves promote airflow around folded
clothes, which cuts down on the possibility of mold,
mildew, and pests.

- Group like with like (jeans with jeans, etc.).
Same-size items stack more neatly

- Put clothes you use most in the center at eye level.

-Don't stack higher than about a foot, and leave at least
6 inches between the top of the stack and the next shelf
for easy reaching in.

- Add drawers to collect smaller items. If you don't have
drawers, use a basket or two. Position drawers below eye
level so it's easy to peer in.

Strategy: Hanging Clothes
Hanging up clothing inside a closet is an easy way to keep clothing organized, especially if you have a lot of dress clothes, suits, or dresses. Lorie Marrero, creator of The Clutter Diet online program, recommends these tips:

-- For the double-hang area, put the shortest clothes on
the top rod and hang the bottom one as high as possible
under them. Use space freed up near the floor for a shoe
rack or storage bins.

-- Organize garments by category and separate with hanging
labels; the more specific the categories the better. For example,
subdivide your shirts into short- and long-sleeve, or casual
and dressy. Bonus points: Organize by color within a category.

-Keep shoes, purses, and jewelry in hanging organizers there
are dozens on the market, so you can see them alongside your
