Updated on July 9, 2013

Can you find your favorite shirt or THE pair of jeans without searching and searching in your closet?  For me it seems I am always reaching back in ot depths of my closet ot still yet find more clothes disorganized.  If you are in the same boat then you need some good Closet Orgainziation ideas. In this article we will explore options for closet shelves, closet or closet shelving systems that will make your life easier.  This article will take a look at closet storage and use of closet space!

One of the obvious ways to reduce the amount of space in you closet is to go through at rid out the items that no longer fit or are old and damaged. When you go through your clothes you will have to envision yourself wearing that article of clothing is. Every woman has her skinny jeans and her fat jeans and her just laying around the house jeans. If you think you might fit into this summer, then maybe you ought to just donate them to goodwill.

Also consider placing your summer clothes in totes or storage bags if if is winter, and in summer placing your winter clothes in totes and storage bags. Space saver bags are stack able and now come in colors.   Totes that are see through are best when you are looking for that favorite sweater!  The Bella 10 Gallon Storage Tote is clear and ten gallons.  It comes in a pack of six. The Rubbermaid storage chest with cedar inserts is a nice way to store your clothes over the summer!

After sifting through your belongings a large majority of the work is now done. A few quick organizing items and you will have your closet space! Another great innovation in Closet Organizing ideas is Space saver hangers. Using a cascading hanger is a great way to create closet space. The set of 2 steel hangers is a great way to get your closet organized.  I like the steel cascading hangers because they are thin. I have some plastic  cascading hangers.  They do the job but I find them bulky.  I like the fact that the steel ones are thin. The steel cascading hangers can hang up to seven shirts. Plastic or steel hangers can be utilized.  This is a great way to hang scarves, ties or other clothing items. This is a popular item. Customers loved how sturdy the chrome steel was compared to the bulky plastic hangers. 

Having a Closet Organizing system is one of many helpful Ideas in getting your closet together. If you are fortunate enough to have a large closet, a nice closet organizer is a must!  The John Louis Home standard closet organizer  red mahogany shelving system is a customer favorite. This wall mounted system can fit  into a closet up to 10 feet long.  The shelving is 12 inches wide and has a red mahogany finish.  This closet organizer promised to provide up to 18 feet of hanging space and 24 feet of shelving space.  The mahogany is offset by a satin nickel finish.  There is assembly required.  Customers have a lot of god things to say about this system.  They comment on how great the shelving looks and how much better it looks than those white wire systems.  Customers also state the instructions were easy to follow.  It took them about two and a half hours to assemble.  The John Louis closet organizer is also available in maple and honey maple colors.

Stand alone organizers

If you feel you may not want the closet organization system in your closet then maybe just some stand alone shelves.The John Louis stand alone tower in Red mahogany is very handsome and sturdy. It is perfect for shoes, sweaters, or purses and is available in other colors.This Mahogany tower goes great with the John Louis closet organizer or alone. It can be secured to the wall in your closet or bedroom. It measures 12 inches deep, 75 inches high and 26 inches wide. I is also available in maple.

Another version of the stand alone shelf is the honey can do  hanging organizer. It is is made of sturdy fabric and hangs in your closet.  It  is perfect for you sweaters, sweats or shoes. It measures 54 inches high and is 12 inches deep. There are 8 evenly spaced hanging shelves.  The Honey Can do organizer comes in other colors too such as navy blue, black, and natural.  The sturdy velcro loop at the top make it easy to hang.

Shoe Organizers

A key closet organization ideais shoe organizers. There are several ways to get your shoes organized to create more closet space. The first option is over the door shoe hangers. Everybody has one of these! The Clear door organizer rack can hold up to 12 pair of shoes. I like to use them to organize other things too. Scarves, socks, or other items are easy to locate in the see through holders.

The Whitney Stackable Shelf is another option for shoe organization. It is two shelves tall and made of steel. It is easy to assemble. It can hold about six pair of shoes.

The Under Bed Shoe organizer is another popular closet organization idea. It holds a dozen shoes and takes up no closet space. The organizer is partitioned off into 12 sections. A clear plastic can be zipped over the top. The clear plastic top allows you to easily access your shoes as well as keep them free of dust.
