Are you a little obsessed with organizing? We are too. So we thought we'd channel our obsession into something helpful: a list of ways to organize your bedroom closet. Pick and choose from the ideas below...

1. If you don't have any real closets in your home, integrate storage into another room (as Darla did above). Wall racks and hangers are easy to install.

2. Declutter. Use Discardian's Closet Trick to get rid of clothes you don't wear.

3. Store your most-used items at eye level, less-used items below, and least-used items up high.

4. Combine storage units to fit your different needs: drawers for folded items, hangers for dresses and suits, and boxes for odds and ends.

5. Use coordinated hangers for a clean look that will care for your clothes and help you stay organized. Above, BUMERANG Clothes Hangers, $3.79 for an 8-pack at IKEA.

6. Use an umbrella stand to hold odd items like a yoga mats.

8. Keep folded clothes or accessories neat with shelf dividers, like these from Bed, Bath & Beyond.

9. Use vertical space (both above and below the closet rod) to store more.

10. Add lights in your closet so you can see (and use!) what's in there.

11. If you live in a small space, replace traditional closet doors that swing out with curtains or hanging screens.

12. Use stackable laundry baskets for easy sorting, that you can also carry to the washing machine, like these from Sterilite.

13. Hooks can create extra storage space when you hang them inside the closet.

14. Keep your closet in shape by treating it like a small room. Pay attention to lighting, wall color, and floor coverings.

15. Make more room in your closet by storing out-of-season clothes in boxes up high or under the bed.

16. Color coding your wardrobe makes finding things easier.

17. Invest in your closet by using good-looking storage solutions. Above, Componobili Storage Units by Kartell.

18. A rolling cart with coordinated boxes can be pulled in or out of the closet and used for clothing or office supply storage.

19. Use suitcases elsewhere in the house to store out-of-season linens, blankets, or sweaters.

20. Repurpose standard storage pieces. Taryn and Sanford used a trunk to store clothing in their closet, with a cushion on top for seating (and then baskets on top of that for even more storage).
