Moreover, this organizational guide can help you regardless of your lifestyle and personal style, you just adapt what she is telling you.
For example, I am a very busy, naturally-messy-but-trying-to-get-better, married twenty-something with way too many clothes and there's no end in sight. While I don't have time to spend so many hours building shelves and wall mounts and schlepping to IKEA to get various things, I did reserve a Saturday to go through all my clothes. I mean all of them. I threw them all on the bed and from there divided them into three piles: donate/consign, trash, keep. I then worked on one pile at a time. I took my trash pile and (because I'm an eco freak) looked to see if I could upcycle anything, everything else got pitched. I laundered and nicely folded the consignment/donation pieces and reserved the next morning for the local consignment shop. Everything they didn't want, I donated. This way, you get a little change in your pocket for all the work you're doing. After that I took the clothes I kept and laundered them all appropriately (she goes over this) and after each load itemized the clothing in an excel doc according to the storage location, and then color, brand, etc. Time-consuming yes, but god, its helpful.
This whole thing took me two weekends, which is a pain in the tush, but honestly, it saves you so many headaches afterwards. Doing this also makes you keenly aware of what you need/have too much of/etc.
