Here is a tip for storing large flat objects such as picture frames or odd shapes such as wrapping paper tubes, etc. Use a shower extension rod at the back of a closet. Secure the rod and place objects behind it.

I have always hated looking through my closet for the proper coat hanger to hang my clothes. So I have placed a hook inside my closet. Each time I take something off of a hanger, I put the coat hanger on this hook. It is so nice to have the proper hanger waiting me when I go to hang my clothes. Try this. I hope you find this a time saver also.

I use a curtain tie back near the washer & dryer to hang clothes hangers on. It's very handy when taking clothes out of the dryer. I also have some over the door hooks to hang clothes on after I get them on the hangers. My pantry is in the laundry room so it makes it easy to do this. I have also used a chain to hang clothes on. If you don't have enough closet space, put a piece of chain up on a nail and you'll have more space to hang clothes.

I bought a small shower rod that you twist to fit. I put it from front to back ways (instead of the traditional side to side) and lower to the left side of the closet. I put ONLY empty hangers there. That way when I do laundry and there are clothes to be hung up, I am not searching through my closet for empty hangers.

The hall closet usually is for storing coats and other outdoor apparel. Our closet is used to hold: winter coats, spring and fall coats, hats, boots, umbrellas and gloves. I don't move out of season clothing to another closet for storage. So its here all year around.

Our front closet desperately needed some help. We needed somewhere to store the kid's gloves, mittens, and hats where they could reach them, and I wanted them to be able to be able to hang up their own coats.

I built and installed a cheap cube style shoe shelf unit. I placed it into my front closet on the floor and designated everyone in the house a row for their own shoes.
