Sara wrote with a good question: "In need of suggestions/help. I have a 6'closet about 2' deep with a regular 32" or 36" centered door so I have a limited view of my clothes. Most of those organizers at the hardware store seem sliding door centric. Any AT readers in the same situation do something cool to maximize space?"

A little online searching brought us to Easy Closets.com, where you can use an interface to design your own system based on the actual measurements of your closet (including the size of the opening and type of door used, in your case, traditional) which might give you some ideas for a organization system that would work for your type of closet. The Easy Closets site goes into detail on necessary clearances needed to access your items for reach-in closets - for example, in a 2 foot deep closet the maximum depth of the organizer should be 14 inches for ease of installation and complete access...lots of good measurement/planning info.

Readers, have any of you with a traditional single door closet installed an organizer system or come up with a good diy solution? Let us know in the comments...
