Closet "Organization"

We have submitted a counter offer to the bank, and while we anxiously await the favorable conclusion of negotiations, I've prematurely begun packing.  We could be moving as early as February 18th.  As a result, though I love the task, organizing doesn't seem to be the best use of my time.  I did, however, make an hour to rearrange our closet. 
A common theme to organized closets seems to be matching hangers.  We don't have the $$ to upgrade to wood just yet, but why not match what we have?  I switched all my clothes to the clear plastic and all of Ben's to the white plastic.  I wish I would have taken a before picture- here is what is left in one section where I ran out- 

Your usual college-days mix-mash of hangers.

After reorganizing to a uniform set (and sorting by color)-

A quick fix that, relative to how it was before, makes things looked more organized and a little nicer.

Looks good. Isn't it amazing how much nicer it all looks if you use the same hangers and arrange by color. I do that in my clothes closet, but not the coat closet. Good luck on everything. We are about to put our home on the market. Yikes!

color coding always makes a closet looks more organized.

I am currently having a giveaway from etsy store skeldesign.Notepads to help make organization fun.

check it out.

That looks great! We recently got rid of all our wire hangers for plastic. I like the ones you chose since they could still go in a garment bag easily.... we didn't think that one through.

I'd love for you to link this post on my organization linky!
