    If you've been putting off cleaning out your closet because you don't know where to begin, we hear you!  

    Personal stylist and closet makeover maven Elaine Wang Yu of Simply Chic Styling acknowledges that going through your wardrobe can be a daunting task, which is why she suggests breaking it down into "manageable chunks."

    "Start by looking at all your sweaters and T-shirts," Wang Yu advises. "Then the next day, take a look at your shoes or workout clothes. Break it into sections because trying to tackle the entire closet at once is overwhelming."

    Wang Yu says as you go through your clothes, you may find yourself on the fence about whether a piece should stay or go. The stylist shares her insights into how to make those decisions a little bit easier.

    Three kids in one room? It can be done -- and quite successfully too.

    I know she's a reality TV star and she's loaded and has a really fancy wardrobe, but I had no idea just how lavish her style really is until I saw this video tour of Kim Kardashian's closets. Yes, I said closets.

    Kim's wardrobe is so massive and expensive that she has not one, but two closets in her home -- both of which rival the size of a small bedroom.

    If you're wondering why exactly she needs two closets, it's because her shoe, clothes, and handbag collections are just way too large to fit into one walk-in.

    Man. If the new rumor about Jason Hoppy planning on tearing down Bethenny Frankel's walk-in closet and turning it into a man cave are true -- their divorce is a whole heck of a lot uglier than we initially thought.

    I mean, it's already bad enough that Jason has supposedly refused to move out of the lavish $5 million Tribeca loft he once shared with Bethenny, but demolishing her beloved closet? Yeah, that's a pretty low blow, all right.

    There are two kinds of people in this world: those who respond to stress by becoming messier and more chaotic, and those who respond to stress by cleaning and organizing. In a perfect world, all of us in the first category would be paired with someone in the second who would come over and clean our clutter when things get crazy! 

    Sarah James is in the second category. She tells us in this episode of The Sarah James Show that cleaning her closet centers her. Even if you're not like that, having a neat, organized closet full of only clothes you actually wear makes life ... calmer. Sarah shares her tips on getting your closet under control.

    If you're like pretty much every other mom I know, then odds are good that you have a few pieces of clothing in your closet that do a much better job collecting dust and sitting on the hanger than they do making you feel like a fashion queen.

    And in addition to those items that we cling to in the hopes that we'll one day be able to wear them again, there are also certain clothes that really do nothing for our style & make us look much older and frumpier than we actually are.

    Ok -- be honest. Is your bedroom closet all nice and neat and organized? Or does it more closely resemble the aftermath of a major natural disaster (like mine does)?

    Every single time the seasons change, I vow to clean out the walk-in closet in my master bedroom (that you can't even walk into anymore because of all the stuff on the floor), but somehow the task never gets done. And honestly, it's because I go in there with every intention of clearing things out, but then I get overwhelmed and have no idea where to start, so I give up entirely.

    But luckily for unorganized gals like me, there are people out there like Coriann Bright, a professional organizer with her own company Bright Living, who can help take the stress and guesswork out of getting a closet in order.
