Q: Hello! We bought our house about a year and a half ago and I have been baffled by these closets [pictured below] ever since. My husband has the exact same closet as well. As you can tell, there are currently two rods for clothes, but I can't seem to utilize all the empty space in the back. Any thoughts or tips for this problem would be helpful. Thanks! -Sent by Deb

Editor: Oooh, we have one of those closets in our quirky old house! It is in The World's Greatest 9-Year-Old's room, so the easily accessible bar holds his current clothes, while the back bar holds his to-be-grown-into clothes, my off-season and rarely-worn dresses, and any other off-season clothes (especially dry clean only pieces) that we don't want to store in bins in the cellar. Readers, how would you make the most of such strange closets?
