I usually do most of my laundry on Saturday and when I do I have to be very particular in how I put away my clothes in order to have enough space. I organize my clothing into three categories: closet clothes, dresser clothes, and miscellaneous apparel. I have to be careful that I do not put to many clothes in any category so that I utilize my space effectively.
