It's taken me over a year, but my clothes are finally organized the way I like them! I realized I HATE hanging up clothes, so I got shelves for my closet and now everything is in neat piles. The only thing that I have too much of is Indian dress clothes, and I figure that's okay because I don't go to India much and they'll probably last me most of my adult life.

The saris that don't require ironing are in a drawer, and the ones that do are all ironed and hung up (I finally ironed them myself... dry cleaners were charging $12.50 per sari, which was just too much.) I have one drawer for underwear / pajamas / random stuff like my swimsuit. A third drawer holds the petticoats and jewelry. My salwar kameezes, two dresses, and one suit are hung up, and that's it! Everything fits in my closet and chest of drawers. I'm super pleased at how it all turned out.

Next project... Excel template for budgeting...

Congrats! Such a good feeling to be done with a yucky task.
If you have to iron them frequently, maybe look at a garment steamer. I ended up finding one at thrift store, and it's been wonderful for dealing with large amounts of wrinkled quilting fabric.

It's not too frequent. I can either do them once a year in a big batch like I just did, or one at a time 5 or 6 times during the year. Last year I wore more than usual because of my sister's wedding (4 saris over the course of a week) but that won't be happening every year.
