I"m afraid that this weekend may mark the beginning of the truly brisk weather we are to be expecting this time of year.  For New Yorkers especially, that means it"s time to switch over their closet clothes from warm weather to cold weather.  Some of my friends really enjoy this job, finding treasures they forgot they had, spending a weekend afternoon in for once, and having some alone time.  I am not one of those people.  I am basically clueless when it comes to closet organization.  Thankfully, Jessica is giving us advice on closet quick tips to help make organizing day a bit easier.  For her quick tips, click below:

1. When it comes to the clothes in your closet— if you can’t see it, you probably won’t wear it. I live in New York City, where closet space is sparse. In addition to the two small built in closets, I also have this wardrobe from The Container Store. Lets be real, its kind of ugly, but I put up a curtain to keep shield my wears from the sun and my eyes from all of that faux chrome.

2. A Uniform Idea: Hangers— Get rid of those horrible and disgusting wire hangers and switch to something a little more delicate on your clothes (wire hangers can snag, plus they are ugly). Choose one color so your eyes go to what you have, not what a mess you’re looking at.

3. Hanging Out— Any sweaters or garments cut on the bias should folded, not hung.  Time + weight = a stretched out piece. You also run the risk of those nasty little hanger nipples that show up on shoulders of sweaters.
