What kind of state are the wardrobes or closets in your home in? If you are like many of us than the answer is probably rather overstuffed and not as organized as you’d like but who has the spare day or two it would take to sort it all out – especially since there is not too much space in them to begin with?

Easy Shoe Storage – Remember those $100 shoes that you will get around to wearing one day -when you can find them amongst all the clutter in the bottom of the wardrobe? They – and all the rest of your family’s footwear deserve to be stored in efficient little shoe boxes like these instead. They are inexpensive, are designed to accommodate even the most towering of heels and you simple pop them open, grab the shoes you want and go.

Make Use of the Door – By adding a simple plastic rail to the doors of your closet you can gain a lot more hanging space and its a great place to store longer pieces of clothing that you don’t want to get too creased or crushed.
