Are you ready for week 3 of our organizing challenge? This week is closets! I have to say one of my favorite things in the world is an organized closet. I love having everything in it’s place and knowing right where to find what I need. Even though everything in a closet is behind closed doors I still like having it neat and tidy. What about you? Have you been organizing your closets?

I haven’t had the money to update our closets with new systems so I do the best with what I have. I know a lot of you are in the same boat so I hope this will give you some ideas. I have used these Closetmaid shelves in many homes and like them because I can change them around and move them anytime I like. Just make sure to secure them to the wall. I also like to use bins and baskets on the shelves to keep things corralled. My #1 tip to keeping closets organized is to purge regularly. If you’re short on space always think vertical.

I also like to use the doors for storage whenever possible. Over-the-door shoe organizers are one of my very favorite organizing tools. And apparently I like hooks too. I love the ones I added to the inside of Zach’s closet.

If you don’t need a closet for what it was intended, turn it into something else. Our coat closet was teeny tiny and wasn’t being used well, so we built a mudroom (that I will share with you later) and turned the coat closet into a movie closet. Hubby built the shelves and I painted. It took a day and about $25.

What do you do if you don’t have a linen closet? I have 3 bathrooms and not 1 linen closet. A woman did not design this house! Here are some ideas if you don’t have a linen closet like me. I also store guest towels in a basket in my laundry room.

2nd Place:
Two moms, life-long best friends, set out to develop a practical, innovative, customizable, all-in-one storage solution for everyone in the household. Products were created and designed to meet personal challenges of dealing with clutter throughout the house & garage, unmet by existing products out in the market today. Our modular storage units have snap construction which allows for easy assembly with no tools required, including snap-on accessories. Configure the shape of the overall unit to fit any space, or split a starter kit into multiple smaller units. Ten different colors are available to fit any room décor. With door hang and wall mount options, it requires no valuable floor space. Various accessories allows a place for everything, and everything ends up in its place! Great training for young children to manage and be responsible for their personal belongings from an early age. Additional accessories and panel kits are available to expand the overall size of the storage system, or to create a smaller version of our starter kits to fit specific needs.

3rd Place:
Organizables is a practical solution to the early morning chaotic demands of getting children ready for school every day. For the busy parent who has to get kids up, dressed and fed on a tight schedule, Organizables are the antidote to your morning frustrations.
