Another place many people use as a catch all area; the closet. A closet never seems to be big enough for all the stuff needing storage, however, with a little time and effort, you can make your closet work for you. Here are some great ideas to get you started. As with the other rooms, take everything out, go through each item and take an inventory. In your closet, the golden rule is, if you didn't wear it in the last year, toss it or re-purpose it. We highly recommend Threads to help you through this process. If you can afford it, many closets could use great built-ins. Some drawers and shelves can make all the difference. But when your budget's tight, or you just need some new ideas, here are a few. [caption id="attachment_897" align="alignnone" width="600"] Invest in some good hangers.
