I am curious, how do all of you store your clothes? Â I live in the dorms at my college, and the closets leave a lot to be desired. Â I don't have many dressy clothes up here (i.e. suits, ties, etc.) but I do have many nice articles of clothing, and I would like to store them as best as I can. Â My closet has a bar about 5' across, with a dresser-type unit underneath. Â Half of the closet is about 5' from the bar to the ground, and the other half is about 3' from the bar to the top of the dresser unit, which makes only half of it usable (except for shorter t-shirts and such). Â There are also 4 drawers (three stacked up on one side, a single one on the floor), each about 18" wide, 18" deep, and 8" high. Â I store all my socks, undershirts, and boxers folded in one drawer, khakis folded in the other, jeans in another one, and sweaters in the last. Â I hang up all of my shirts and light sweaters (silk-cashmere blends) on the rack, on good quality hangers. Â Any advice on what to hang and what to fold would be appreciated. At home, things are different; I have a proper closet and dresser to hold things. Â What types of pants should be hung up, and which should be folded? Â Also, how can you avoid creases on items that are folded, aside from ironing each time before wearing them? Â Should belts be coiled up, or hung straight? Â Should ties be hung, or laid flat? Â Any other additions would be great to hear as well.
