3 tips for maintaining the tidiness:
1. Systemize: Store like items together and arrange them in the order in which you dress.
2. Overplan: Preselect outfits for the week; prepare a few extra in case the weather changes.
3. Clean: When vacuuming, don't stop short of closet doors—dust bunnies sure won't.
