I have wanted to write about different ways to help organize your closet, as it’s a critical area of organizational needs for many people. I have a friend right now, that’s been trying to get me over to her house to organize just her closet. My first “paid gig” in organizing, was to simply go in and organize a closet. It really seems to be an area that people get overwhelmed.
That’s why I wanted to check into an organizing closet system. My husband has built something similar to this, in my closet. I know not everyone has the skills to build their own, so I researched to find the best to share with you!
Here is what I found:
Price: $657.49 + Free Shipping
I really love the quality of this system, and all of its wonderful features. As you take a look, I think you will agree with me!
John Louis Home…The Company
This company is based out of Earth City, Missouri and thrives as the premier provider of 100% solid wood organizers. Which is exactly what I was looking for! Only solid wood was an option for me as I researched.
Their versatile designs are beautifully crafted, yet are easy on a tight budget, so they are affordable. We needed that too!
Even the most novice Do-It-Yourselfer can assemble a closet organizer with simply a screwdriver, saw, level and a pencil. This was important as I sought the perfect product as well!
5 Star Rating
I love that this product gets a 5 star rating. I searched many sites, and it is 5 star across the board. Very impressive! People love the quality, design, ease of installation and gorgeous finish of the wood.
I was very pleased with it’s many quality features:

Tips To Get You Organizing Your Clothes Closet
Now that you have the organizational space you need, it’s time to get organizing! First off, clear out what you don’t need. As with any space that you are working on to get more efficient and functional, you need to eliminate.
Closets tend to build up more than a lot of spaces, as they are behind closed doors usually. People tend to stuff and shove into their closets. I suggest you get all of your clothes out, and go through everything. If you cram other items into your closet; pull them out also!
Donate all items that are too small. I know, you probably have a “wishful thinking” area, that are the clothes you’d really like to get back into. OK. Keep them in a box, perhaps in the garage or attic. But get them out of the closet. You need that space! Having more space in the closet will really help keep it organized and accessible. Having too much stuffed behind doors, makes it nearly impossible to keep in order.
After the cleansing, you will have much more success placing the hanging items where they need to be and having folded items on shelves and in drawers.
Another tip: Try not to let the clothes closet be a catch all. Keep your clothes in it. Maybe some shoes. Find other places in your home for books, paperwork, stationary, etc. Use some of my organizational ideas on this site to help create space. Read through my other posts to help clear the clutter and find tips to transform your home.
I hope this review will help you get that clothes closet organized! It will be such a great feeling to have the chaos under control! Please let me know if you have any questions and feel free to leave me a comment below.
