empty or ‘shelf-out’ in the future. The only items removed from this closet were extra
hangers and one comforter. The
homeowner had already removed unwanted clothing before any photo

organizing, it was easy to move the bathroom hamper into the closet,
which gave the adjoining bathroom a bigger feel.
Boxes were also added to the closet without causing any storage
problems. The organizing
process gave the homeowners easier access and allowed plenty of wiggle

This closet took 4.5 hours to complete.

This pantry took 1.5 hours to complete.
