I had several pairs of cute capris, a couple of tops and a couple of skirts that I had ordered over the years and then decided they were too tight. I hung them all on my closet door to create a sort of three dimensional Motivation Collage. Every time I opened that door I saw those items there and couldn't wait to fit into them. The door is gradually emptying as I lose inches and add to my wardrobe!

When I bought my wreath hangers years ago ,I had no idea they would come in handy for over-the door use year round! I use them for holding up a very wide over-the -door organizer for wrapping paper! And for coats in the hall closet!
When tackling a big organization project, before and after pictures are a great motivation tool. Also, whenever organizing a closet, remove EVERYTHING and put it into 3 piles: keep, toss, donate. Go to http://nomorecounting.blogspot.com to see how to organized a disaster linen closet.
Move most of your clothes (try it first with tops) to a closet in another room. When you need something to wear, grab it from the other closet. Once it has been worn, it can be washed and put back in your original closet. Anything left in the spare closet after 3 months, donate!
You can do this a few times a year with the different seasons. You can do it with pants too though I know most of us have more of a surplus in the tops department. If you haven't worn a certain tank top all summer long, are you really going to miss it when it's finally gone?
