The Challenge-Make This Fit!

Do you have a “closet organizing system” that is comprised of one long shelf and one hanging clothes bar?  I hardly call this a closet organizing system!  This is the problem with closet organizing.  Many of us have closets configured just like this.  (Every time I look at a new, pricey home, I wonder why the builder used this type of closet system instead of a useful one!)  Well, if this is the problem with your closets, I have a solution for your closet chaos!

Closet Organizing System Problem

The plan

I needed to adjust some things in my guest room because I removed one dresser from the room and had to move some things that were in the bathroom vanity into the closet.  I found myself with many more items that needed to be stored in the closet!

While the closet is pretty large, it was set up with the standard “closet system” –  one shelf, one bar.  This would be great if I had lots of ball gowns to store!

The Solution

I took my own advice and invested in a closet system that would hold the types of items I needed to keep in there.  I purged what was no longer needed and then put together the puzzle of what kind of storage (shelves, hanging, baskets) I needed.  I worked with The Container Store to develop my Elfa System closet plan and ordered it up.
