If you're like us, an organized closet sparks major joy!

Whether it's being able to see the floor of your closet or the fact everything has its own place, a clean closet can make you feel lighter and more clear-headed, even on those mornings when you "don't have anything to wear."

Although an organized closet can be as simple as clothes on hangers, things like aromatherapy sachets, space-saving hangers and accessible organizers can transform your closet into a sanctuary for you and your clothes.

Below, we rounded up 16 things that every grown-up closet should have, so you can live your best, most organized life.
