Maximize your storage…add a shelf!
When we moved into our new home many of the closets in the house just had your typical closet rod inside without even a shelf on top. What’s with that! Not very effective by any means. One of those closets is a storage closet in my laundry room. This is where I store winter coats and luggage. So while normally I would recommend a closet organizer to maximize storage, this time all I needed was a shelf to hold some bigger tote bags used for travel. Travel bags that I was tripping over on the floor. Blech.
Look at all this wasted space. It’s wrong I tell you, just wrong! I’ve since found out that this is a pretty common problem. Closets everywhere are missing a shelf. Poor naked closets.
One shelf added = happy happy storage and happy happy me!
I use those larger bags to store all of our travel bags and backpacks.
We choose to simply add a wire shelf even though as you know I’m not a huge fan of them. In this case though I just needed a shelf and the wire ones were on sale.
In our old house we had one shelf above the rod in my husband’s closet and then my husband went and added a SECOND shelf for even more storage. It melted my heart and made me love him even more :)
Found storage is such a beautiful thing!
Now go check your closets….anyone short a shelf?
