How do I organize a reach in closet for a maried couple?

Whether you have a reach-in or a walk-in, the organizing begins with dividing the space. Once you decide if you’re splitting the space 50/50 or some other percentage ratio, you can start planning the closet.

Reach-in closets are usually between  four-feet to 8-feet across. In order to make the most of this small space for two people, you don’t want to try to add too many hanging levels or shelves as these take away from the overall hanging space (taking up room for brackets).

This configuration works for many:
Divide your space into thirds.
Use 1/3 for long hang at 72″ high (for dresses and long coats if coats being stored there)
Use 2/3 (or half) for short hang – double hang at 72″ and 36″ high. One of you takes the top and the other takes the bottom.
Under the long hang you will have room for your most often worn shoes.
Above the 72″ hang, use a shelf to hold shoes and accessories less often used (dress shoes, purses)

This is a quick sketch of what it may look like when configured:

You will likely need to get creative to find places for shoes, accessories, and sweaters. Under-bed organizers may be a good option for you.

You can also use the side walls of the closet to hang belts and scarves or put them onto accessory hangers and hang them in the long-hang area.

    All you have to be committed to doing is lifting some items that may be
    a tad heavy and putting some elbow into it.

    On the exterior, be sure and mow and trim any overgrowth
    to provide the appearance of a nicely maintained property.
    You may find that the cost of maintaining a co-operative is more than for a condominium as you will have to pay for all expenses relating to shared spaces.

    Of course I also pick up matching shower curtains and rugs.
    Also if you can keep a binder that will hold all the information including brochures and online printouts, this will help you to stay organized.
    These tech advances have had the added affect of killing off newspaper
    readership as more and more of the population migrates to the Internet to get their “newspaper fix”.

    Sometimes, people get so excited about having their
    new place and new life that may be coming with it that
    they just smile and nod and sign on the dotted line.

    If you are taking this as a serious consideration,
    you may want to keep a few things in mind.
    That should be enough to give the potential renter a solid idea of whether or not your unit is what they’re looking for.

    All the entertainment units like TV, DVD, remote and video games can be placed in a single unit
    and there are more and more types of furniture, coming into the market,
    every day. If you are unable to see the property a second or third time
    you still have ways of ensuring you’re not walking into
    a lemon. Chances are you won’t walk into

    Condo neighborhood associations generally charge dues and membership
    fees. A wide range of condos are available in Mc – Call, right from 2 bedroom condos to 4 bedroom condos.
