Make the Most of Closet Space

Closet renovation and organization is a great project anytime you have free time.  I find that when I have a well organized closet, I have an easier time getting ready in the morning and I wear all of my clothes, rather than just the few favorite pieces that are easiest to find every day.  One of my common problems with keeping a tidy closet, is that I don’t like to hang everything up.  Some things just do not need to be hung on hangers, or can’t, (such as sweaters and jeans) but I also don’t have a bedroom dresser.  So I don’t even have drawers to put those articles of clothing in.

Another problem with my closet has been all the unused space beneath the hanging clothes.  It seemed like there was a much better way use the space.  So, I installed a bottom closet rod beneath the one that was already there.  Then, I added this awesome 3-shelf hanging closet rod organizer to the bottom rod.  The three shelf closet organizer is made of canvas with metal hooks that hang from the clothing rod.  And the hanging canvas shelves have inserts to keep each shelf sturdy.  I placed three in a row and gained nine shelves in my closet, without having to install permanent closet shelving!
Now I have shelves so I can fold up sweaters, sweatshirts, and jeans and keep them in my closet without having to hang each one from a hanger.  It worked so well in my closet, that my husband decided he wanted one too.  We did the same exact thing in his, and it feels like we have fancy custom closets but did it at a fraction of the cost.  The other cool thing about these canvas closet organizers is that they’re portable.  So if we’re going on a trip, we can have the same closet convenience at the hotel that we have at home!
