1. Get Your Jewelry in Order

If your necklace collection has outgrown its jewelry box, try a jewelry drawer insert or hanging organizer. The hanging organizers usually come with or snap onto a hanger and have plenty of clear pockets, so nothing gets tangled. Drawer inserts are a great way to display earrings, rings, bracelets and even watches, while keeping everything separated. Added bonus: Having it in your bedroom closet encourages you to wear jewelry more often.

2. Opt for Storage Under the Bed

Get more mileage out of the horizontal space in your bedroom with sliding or rolling under bed storage bins. It's a great extension of your closet, allowing you to rotate your seasonal items or even store bigger, bulkier items like backpacks, purses and blankets. Plus, the storage is hidden if you have a bedskirt. Stick a label on the outside of each container, so when you peek under the bed you'll know exactly what you're looking at. Short on linen closet space? Another idea is to keep extra sheets for your bed here.

3. Tame the Shoe Pile

One of the quickest fixes to a bedroom closet overrun with shoes is to invest in a shoe rack. "I recommend a rack over a hanging shoe [bag] any day," says Julie Morgenstern, author of Organizing from the Inside Out. Bags tend to sag and take up valuable hanging space, which most people can't afford to give up, says Morgenstern. Plus, an expanding tiered shoe rack below your clothes keeps them accessible and away from dirtying or staining materials. If you have a mountain of shoes, Morgenstern actually says: "Don't throw anything out! Get all 20 pairs of identical black heels lined up nicely." If you enjoy abundance, often in about a year you'll give in to those 20 pairs and be ready to let some go, she says.

4. Create a Reading Nook

Rescue your reading chair from clothes and magazines by adding proper organization to a bedroom's reading nook. Next to a comfortable chair, place a side table to keep piles of books off the floor. Magazines are best grouped in a magazine rack. To promote an uncluttered feeling, make sure you have fewer books than fit the space. If you read in bed, Julie Morgenstern recommends having a small bookcase as your bedside table.
