How do you guys organize your clothing?

Hello everyone! I am new to this website, and I want to make more friends. I don't have many friends, and this website is a great chance to connect with other blind teenagers like me. I was just wondering how you organize your clothing, and make sure your hair looks nice. My mom usually puts my clothes in order in the drawers. Please give me some advice!

Re:How do you guys organize your clothing?



Hi Sarah,
My name is Rebecca. I am legally blind and as a result I can't see low contrast. I also have no peripheral vision, and can't see in very bright light and dim or dark lighting along with 20/100 vision. I usually don't bother with makeup because it takes way too long. However I know how to put my hair up and flat iron it by feel (without touching the straightener of course). However I can see enough to match clothes and stuff. Sometimes though if I am going to someone else's house or a place I know has bad lighting for me to see anything I put brl labels on the tags like just a letter of the color because I know what I packed.

Hi, my name is Bobbi. I have enough vision to organize and seperate my clothes and to do my hair, but I still think I have a few tips that can help you. I take classes through the mail from the Hadley School for the blind. One of their courses is called Using Raised Markers that has helped me organize many different things, including clothing. The courses are completely free and very helpful (www.hadley.edu)
