How to organize your closet when you are blind or visually impaired

                 Image result for color coded clothing closet images

As if it isn't hard enough keeping our closets and drawers organized... for the blind or visually impaired, organization is incredibly important in knowing where items are at all times. Always keeping essentials in the same place and grouping them together by color or style is an absolute must for someone who has a visual impairment.  Hanging clothes together in categories: long sleeve, short sleeve and sleeveless, patterns and solid colors, folded shirts and sweaters, or separating casual from dressy... when it comes to clothing, these helpful products below will help aid in the organization process and ensure a successful ensemble before you walk out the door.
