Once you know what your keeping you will then know what kind of storage you need. That way you will only buy what you need. Try to use what you already have. Remember, if you have not worn it in a year, donate it. If you cannot afford storage containers use card board boxes, and if you want, spray paint them for added color. Label with Post-it notes of what is in the box for easier access to the item you need. Clear plastic storage bins are great so you can see whats inside.
If you need more hanging space install another rod for hanging. Sort stuff by color or hang skirts, blouses, pants etc, together. I found it easier to hang all matching items together. Store scarves and purses on one hanger with shower curtain hooks. Hang a shoe organizer on the closet door for smaller items. Hang small hooks inside and outside for housecoats.
For kids closets you can install a rod at the top and middle of the closet for more hanging and their clothes are small enough for that when you have small closets. Use old dresser drawers for storing things under the bed if you do not have enough space in the closet.
How long it will stay this way is unknown. We can now see the bottom of their closets. My five year old isn't coming down in mis-matched outfits anymore, like the fuchsia skirt with green leotards and a red and white polka dotted shirt.
