    I think I already posted but, I don’t see it so I’m going to post again. First off, I’d remove everything from the closet and start fresh. Throw out or donate everything that I no longer use or want and then GET ORGANIZED!!! I love Rubbermaid products and one of my New Years resolutions is to get organized. And with Rubbermaid’s help… I’m going to do just that. Rubbermaid ROCKS!! Thank you so much for all the cleaver ideas!!!
