When it comes to the 10 tons of clothes our children acquire in their first years of life, closet storage can require effort. We've talked about sorting them in boxes before, but what about using a simple piece of string to keep everything sorted, under control, and in plain sight. It's just a few simple knots and presto!
eHow member pondripples has put up a great tutorial for creating extra storage space with just a string. You simply take a length of string and double it up and tie a (traditional) overhand knot. That's all there is to it!
When all your knots are finished, try slipping the first knot around a sturdy hanger and add clothes as you go down. Make different strings for different sizes of clothes or one for pants and one for shirts. How you decide to organize is up to you and don't forget you can hang both ends for easier access (though it will take up more bar space).
It's not the most glamorous option, but it's an easy and inexpensive one, perfect for parents looking to spend their money on other fun things and not closet storage!
