Living with a chaotic closet situation? We’ve been there. Luckily, with the help of Melanie Charlton Fowler—founder of Clos-ette, a holistic organizational design firm that specializes in achieving functionality while maximizing your space—we have some solutions for you.
The closet expert is sharing eight unique items (all under $100) that will create more room in your wardrobe, all while lending little luxe details for you to showcase your most prized possessions. Shop the affordable organizational products she recommends below.
“A lightweight ladder is a must. You can find options with two, three, or four steps. I slip in it between my clients’ hanging bays when there is no spacial tolerance for a custom, attached ladder. You can buy this convenient $13 hook to store the ladder so it’s out of sight.”
“Dasco boot trees are my favorite boot shapers. They allow your shoes to hold their form, and you can line them up nicely without having to pay for expensive custom cabinetry.”
“I love these Navy textured hangers from The Container Store. They save space and won’t break the bank.”
We suggest slowly swapping your bulky hangers for slender ones, and then you can donate your old hangers to a local Goodwill.
Lightweight Stackage Baskets
“This basic and lightweight stackable storage basket comes in many different sizes and is an excellent alternative to organizing items while still being able to see what is in the bin.”
“If you have a seam to drill into, this retractable valet rod is a great way to showcase a special item or plan outfits. It’s a simple detail that adds a luxe touch to any closet. If you don’t have a seam to install, I recommend using a surface-mounted option like this one.”
Wall Mount with Pegs
“Use this simple peg wall to organize scarves, bags, costume jewelry, and sunglasses.”
“I love these Fabrinique bag stuffers. A bit of a splurge if you buy one for all your purses, but still affordable when you consider the fact that it’s shaping and protecting your handbags.”
“How does one protect their valuables on a budget? With this durable safe. If you’re interested in dropping a little more dough, this is the chicest and strongest safe for the money. This is a beautiful way to protect your valuables while also looking good in your closet and home.”
