Adding just a few steps to your routine can help with household chores no matter your level of vision. Here are some helpful tips that can make organizing your closet a little easier. The first thing you need to think about is the shape and size of your closet as well as how many clothes you need to hang up. The better the lighting in your closet the easier this task will be. If possible, consider having track lighting installed in your closet or switch to full-spectrum bulbs which mimic natural daylight. Now, create an inventory or list of everything in your closet, sorta like spring cleaning. You'll wanna organize your clothes into groups. These groups can be by casual versus more formal clothing, sleepwear or accessories, even different colors or you can group them by occasion and or season. Whichever you feel will be best for you. Once you get them into groups take it one step further by separating the clothes you wear most often from those you wear occasionally and those you seldom wear.
