Good Questions

Q: I live in a pre-war apartment with lovely built-ins throughout the place. However I'm having some problems organizing my closet. Each shelf is 16" D x 49.5" W with shelf thickness of 2". The piles of folded clothes seem to topple over one another, especially as the week progresses & laundry day looms. I can't employ the usual shelf dividers sold in stores, since they don't expand to 2" thickness. Also I've been searching for clear bins, but to no avail. I'd like some suggestions on how to organize this hot mess. One caveat: I'd like to see what clothes are available to me, so having opaque bins are not for me. Thanks for all the lovely advice/suggestions!
