Ah, this is where The Prin Press all began! Shelves, rods, space and opening the doors or pulling the sheets to a side, and the closet is a wonderful space to see a rainbow of lovely clothing items!
1. Every Item Hung
Er, or as much as possible. Ever tried to hang those unmentionables? Yeah, that’s a big mess. Basically every item that is hangable. It’s obvious how to hang those folded shirts, jackets, coats, skirts, shorts, and pants.
2. By Color
More the monochromatic type? Just sort strictly by color. Just keep ROYGBIV in mind and then do by type in each color. Easy peasy!
3. Separate Closet Sections for Everything
Have a folding section at the bottom, hang in the middle and fold again at the top. Then section off the sections. Either place a dresser or shelves-turned-into-dressers in the closet or turn square baskets on their sides. If you don’t wear it very often or it’s out of season, then put it up top or trash it or send it to a second-hand store. PJs, workout clothes, unmentionables, fold those on the bottom (or top, but together). Put shoes to the left and/ or the right if there’s room. Innovation really is key here. There’s really no reason to use things for why they’re traditionally constructed, which brings us to…
4. Everything Folded
For the person who is the complete opposite of the first, folding is fun! Well, sometimes I like it! Anyway, some items should never be folded - silk, leather, long coats. Fortunately, most dresses can be folded, but definitely not huge ones, like wedding dresses.
5. No Closet!
Some of the most organized people I know have no closet. Most of these people live in NYC. One person I used to live with hung clothes on the jagged brick in her room (I'd, quite frankly, NOT do this EVER, unless you want a brick wall to ruin your clothes), yet it worked in an organized fashion for her. This is actually a blessing. Get ready for the blessing - your best closet ever. You’ve been given the opportunity to build your own closet.
Stop looking at me like that.
I’m not going to link you to some uncool brand website with over-priced, straight-up ugly or made-for-you closets. You get to find unique items that actually fit your clothing, not the other way around. Metal racks that you can laquer or spray paint are great. Don’t only look at retail stores, look where they look at places that sell to retailers. Or look on Amazon or Chairish.
Or search Etsy, which is such a hidden gem that many people undervalue. I’ve never had a bad experience with anyone, probably because they’re just like us! They’re entrepreneurs or solopreneurs, so they care much more about quality, production, customer satisfaction, ROI and the rest of the business bells and whistles. The cost-to-quality ratio is bar none.
6. BONUS: Hire Me! ;)
Still confused? No matter which 1.-5. you want for all your things? That’s what we do. I chat, visit, evaluate, and then organize your commercial or residential spaces. You and I won’t part ways until your space is perfectly organized to your expectations.
Love ya. Mean it. Au re.

Sunday Scaries "wine session" - After being in the the same career for over 18 years, including one position for 8 years with 2 promotions, in 2017 I left that field and have been trying to figure out what I have wanted ever since.
I have tried a career coach, volunteering, upskilling, networking . . . and am currently in therapy . . . nothing is sticking. I have switched roles 6 times in 6 years. I have also done freelancing and tried starting my own business. And the job I have now is sucking the life out of me. I have only been there for 9 months.
Not one to whine . . . and yet here I am.
I can see the appeal of a mindless job that just pays the bills and I never have to think about a "career" again . . . am I giving up??

I live in rural West Virginia, master's level counselor/therapist with lots of experience and great references, but no license.
I'm 76 years old: too old to go back to school for 2 years and then do the 3000 hours of supervision. I work remotely for a toxic company; along with others haven't been paid in over 2 months. I love helping my clients but the $$$ issue is eating away at my peace of mind. I've interviewed several places, but lack of licensure is a hurdle. Ideas on how to get out of this trap really appreciated.

For those who identify as female, what “traditions” exist today within the world of work that need to be removed or updated?
For background, I'm a cisgender white male looking to find ways to become a stronger ally through action and priviledge.

Any advice on how to generate writing samples for a content writer position if you are transitioning from another career path?
(I am a transitioning English teacher, so I have plenty of writing experience, but nothing that would be suitable for a writing sample.)

Why is that we are not allowed to bring up salary until after offer acceptance, but yet companies can ask what the range is that we are looking for right in the application?
How is that legal? If it's not a numerically required field, what is the best verbiage for how to get around it?

I have a bossy coworker (male) who has usurped by (female) boss's authority previously, and attempted to do it again today.
He has derailed work meetings by questioning me, and my boss doesn't interfere or interrupt at all. She didn't question his previous action, which basically took a job duty away from me and appropriated it for himself. I asked her about it, and whether it was permanent. She indicated (vaguely) that it wasn't, but she didn't seem too worried about it. It was his area of expertise, so I let it go. If he wants to reduce my workload, I'll just spend that time posting to FGB!
He sent an email today, cc'ing her, and gave me some orders outside of his wheelhouse. I spent at least an hour writing a draft that detailed my level of knowledge and how I didn't need to do what he insisted on, then decided to simply say I'll do whatever our boss says in a reply-all response.
The other email would have been sent to my boss's boss and someone else in the organization who supervises my stakeholders, and the supervisor of my stakeholders.... and I wanted to cc' others as well.
But I felt that would have been a jerk move response to a jerk move.
I'm proud of myself for standing up for myself and keeping it brief, but now I know I really need to discuss it with my boss, and she doesn't have time for this nonsense.
What would your next step be, hive mind?
