Organizing Accessories Right Without SightBy Thomas, Empish J.; Dialogue: A World of Ideas for Visually Impaired People of All Ages, Vol. 45, No. 4, pp. 54-57
Publication Date: July-August 2006
Advice to people with visual impairments for organizing clothing accessories. The author, an avid “accessorizer” who lost her vision as an adult, describes how she learned to organize her wardrobe using bags, boxes and braille labels. Scarves are put individually into a hanging bag with multiple pouches labeled with descriptions in braille. Shoes are stored with like colors grouped together, their shapes identified by touch. Jewelry is kept in recycled jewelry boxes, in sets when possible, otherwise grouped by color and design (pearls together, etc.) Stockings are washed individually and then stored in Ziploc bags with the color on a braille label. She learned to identify makeup by recognizing the shapes characteristic for various brands; since learning braille, she uses labels to identify shades.
