    As a professional organizer in New York City, I face organizing challenging closets all the time. A few of my best tips:
    Store long vs. short hanging garments in separate areas to optimize storage space underneath the shorter garments.
    For large floppy purses that won’t stand up on a shelf, hang them using hooks flush against the wall (if you have available wall space on the closet sides or back).
    Use vertical shelf dividers to keep stacked piles of T shirts or sweaters from tilting to one side of the pile, or merging with the adjacent pile on a shelf.
    Happy Organizing!-

    Dressers and chests of drawers in the bedroom are becoming a thing of the past. People are adding closet organizers with shelves, shoe racks, and drawers to their existing closets. I have used Rubbermaid containers that were originally designed to wash dishes in for years. They house my underwear, socks and pantyhose, belts and scarves. I put them on my shelves in my closet and they keep all my items organized. I recommend them to all of my clients!

    I have a smaller than usual walk in closet as the other side of the wall is a walk-in pantry, which I refuse to give up. So as you walk in the closet there are clothes hanging on either side, however, we installed a third bar on the back wall up high. There is enough length to allow me to hang all my petite blazers and jackets and we have a 2 step stool so I just step up and grab my jackets. This has tripled my hanging space and took Tom all of 15 minutes to install.

    By putting shoe and purse organizers on the floor of my closet and a shelf above the hanging bar, I have probably doubled the useful storage area. We all have a habit of just tossing things on the floor of our closets and then having to dig through piles of stuff later to find that one item. By adding the organizers, I can easily put away and find my accessories. Adding the shelf gave me great additional storage for sweaters, jeans, sweatshirts, those bulky items that seem to eat drawer space.
