Master closet organization of tops by color with color chart

Almost everyone I polled for last weeks article on purging a closet said they organize their clothing in groups. Tops and dresses by sleeve length and bottoms by pant or skirt length. Others went a step further and colorized them. I’m in the later group. If I had my way every thing, other than nature, would either be color coded or alphabetized.

In the example on the right you can see I have sleeveless to short sleeve tops on the upper rod and three quarter to long sleeve tops on the bottom rod.  Although I don’t wear every color of the rainbow, they are color coded. I use the color order from top down shown on the left side of the photo.  Any color I don’t have, I skip.
