Q: How do I maximize my storage space in this under-the-stairs closet (larger photos below)? I don't need to use this closet for clothing, but as one of two closets it needs to hold just about everything else - vacuum, paper supplies, toolbox, some craft supplies, small ironing board, assorted sports equipment, etc. I need to be able to have somewhat-easy access to everything.

The closet has two hanging bars, a few hooks, and a looong sloping ceiling which ends about 18" off the floor. It's 32" deep, and 70" high at its tallest part. I've hung some wire shelving on the door, and a light so that I can see in there. I'm not sure what to do next.

I've attached a photo of the closet door, and then the back of the closet. The closet slopes down to the left, not straight back.

Does anyone have a genius solution? I just don't know what to do here!
