Closet Storage Organizer

If you’re like most of us, you’ve had those storage closets, whether they be in the back room, the garage, or even the laundry room which are just filled to the brim with clutter. Worse yet, you don’t even know what’s in there. I understand the frustrating nature of this problem since it used to happen to me. The trick is to finding a closet storage organizer system that works for you.

There are many ways to go about finding a proper closet storage organizer. Firstly determine what you want. This may seem oversimplifying but it’s not. If you don’t know what you want, there is no way for you to know how to fix it. Identify the goals you have in organizing your storage closet. For example, do you want bins that stack up neatly? Do you want boxes that are labeled and placed in a certain order? Do you want tools or equipment hanging from a hook? Various hooks? All of these are the right type of question to get to knowing what you want.

Secondly, take everything out of your storage closet. In order to organize the space you need to know what you’re working with and the only way to accomplish this is to remove everything and start from scratch. I mean everything! When you’re done, sweep it or vacuum it just to show you commitment to an all new storage space.

Now, purge everything that you deem as junk! Come on… You can’t tell me everything in that closet still has a use! This is no time to be a pack rat. Purge, purge, purge!

Once this is done, visualize the space you have and how you want to improve it: For example, go buy the bins you want, hang the hooks you’ll be needing, get the boxes ordered and have an idea where you’re going to place these. If you can’t visualize where things are going to go, there is no way to succeed. If it helps, draw it out on a piece of paper.

Once you see the space and know how you want to tackle it, get moving. Start placing things in the storage closet neatly and carefully. This is really all there is to getting a closet storage organizer that’ll work for you. If this is too difficult, there are services you can pay to do this. I recommend at least giving it a shot though first. Every penny counts!
