One of the best tips here is "Corral like things together", this really makes a difference in the closet, kitchen, etc. Secondly, if possible replace folding doors with two single doors opening in the middle, it opens up the area fully and you will love the difference it makes.

Laurie, I put deep shelves in those lost corners beyond the bi-fold doors in our past home. It worked great for suitcases, storage bins of kids' art supplies, etc. But could also be used for clothes. But this meant, I had to be mindful of how many clothes were hanging right in front of those shelves or it could make it difficult to reach them

I have 50 hangers. I can't buy anything unless I have an empty hanger.
