Organizing Clothes in your Wardrobe
One of the uses of wardrobes is for storing clothes. Clothes can be stored in a variety of ways. While some clothes are folded and neatly arranged one on top of another, some of the wardrobes also have provisions to hang the clothes.

Typically in middle class Indian homes, clothes are stored by folding and stacking them on top of the other. This saves space when compared to hangings but then retrieval and putting things back is difficult.
Clothes can be arranged in many ways. (These are just my suggestions.)
Put away winter clothes when you won’t be using them. Same goes for other seasons. You won’t need woolens during summer and hence you won’t be retrieving them frequently.
What you wear outside can be stacked away separately. This way we don’t have to be appraising clothes when we are in a hurry to go outside. Home wear can be kept separately.
Type of clothes
It makes sense to keep the clothes separately based on their type if not in separate shelves. For example you could divide the shelf such that you have half sleeve shirts stacked separately, full sleeved ones separately…etc.
Clothes stored in wardrobes will not always be clothes that you wear. They can include bedspreads, blankets, rain coats…etc. It’s normally a good idea to put heavy clothes like bed spreads, blankets…etc in the bottom most shelf as they will not need to be taken out all that frequently. By not keeping other frequently used clothes there, you don’t have to bend down every time you want to pick a cloth.
The bottom most and top most shelves are devoted to no-so-often used clothes. If possible have drawers for small clothes like socks, kerchiefs…etc. Also typically suits are supposed to be hung.
Also remember, it’s not the organizing that matters, but putting things back where they belong.
