I tried everything and scarves being different shapes and sizes always seemed messy. Now, I use a four tier swing arm pant hanger and drape one scarf per tier. Keeps them neat and easy to store and see.
I keep a shoebox in my closet to hold loose change that seems to end up in pockets at the end of the day or whenever I change my purse in my walk-in closet.. I take whatever amount is in the box to the coin machine at the grocery store around Christmas time and am always pleasantly surprised to find enough money to buy gift cards for nieces, nephews and grandkids painlessly. I time the "cash-in" on the weekend the store has 4x the gas points for gift card purchases....yay!
When planning out your closet designs maximize it to the best for storage. We had 100" of space so up we went to the top and it really worked for us. In NYC closet space reigns supreme. Not only did we paint the interior but we incorporated a stencil design in the plan.
I keep sets of bedsheets together by folding and keeping the fitted sheet, top sheet, xtra pillowcases.. all inside of one of the pillowcases. Easy to recognize which set is which, and everything stays neatly folded and tucked away.
When buying a closet organizer for a closet used by two people it is best to buy two organizers (even when the box says one is enough for that size closet). Two organizers will give both people enought hanger area and enough stack area. One will not.
