"Neat" and "tidy", two elusive words when referring to the average person's closet(s). Squeezing out usable storage space is like squeezing lemons for lemonade: it takes work. And nowhere is this more true than the humble closet, repository for all the clothing, sporting goods, paperwork, shoes and just about everything else we may need...but just not at this moment.
Despite our own desire to live with less, the reality is we've still got a whole lot of stuff, but not so much space to store it all away. That's where good organizing accessories play an important part. Check out these simple and affordable ($8.50/12) no-slip slack hangers that allow for efficient storage, but most impressively, offer the option to remove your trousers without removing the hanger itself. And equally simple-smart are these rafter shelves, creating additional usable storage space for closets and attics. With good organization tools like these, we're almost ready to tackle organizing our closet (again). Almost.
