Closet Organization Update

I posted about my half of the master closet here last year, but we’ve upgraded it a bit since then, and I am so excited to have it even more functional.

We were able to fit 7 of the 8 drawers in the space, and it gives me so much more storage, and it’s adjustable if my needs change.

Also, when I last posted about my closet, I had used a temporary, adjustable double hanging rod for my hanging clothes, but I wanted a permanent one, and for very little cost, we bought a shelf and rod set and installed it.

My husband cut down the shelf to the size I wanted it, so I would still have a little room for extra long items.

Everything was around $150, and now I have just what I need to organize my clothing items, and since I don’t have a linen closet, a place to store extra towels and washcloths for the master bathroom.

I love having double hanging space because it really utilizes the available space well.

We’ve used it in both my daughter’s closet and the boys’ as well, and the two younger ones can reach their clothing more easily.
