Closet Storage

Yesterday my sister-in-law, Wendy, blogged about closet storage at SimplyBrookes.blogspot.com. For me, a clean and well organized closet is practically nirvana. Worried that I am overstating, I looked up the definition of nirvana. "An ideal condition of rest, harmony, stability, or joy = nirvana". Exactly!

Wendy and I are on the same page when it comes to organization. I was inspired to add to her post.

Many of the closet storage options on the market don't fit the bill. Fabric covered cardboard bins lack durability. While slope-sided storage bins compromise valuable space, making it difficult to fit folded clothes. I love these polypropylene woven crates from Storables. They come in many different sizes and are true rectangles. A huge stack of nicely folded running t-shirts would reside there in my closet.

One of my favorite tips is to use photo storage boxes for shoes, adding a decorative touch to shelves. Photo boxes are available at craft and office supplies stores. Find a set that compliment your closet or room. A stack of black and white toile photo storage boxes house my "occasion" shoes. These boxes from Joanns are 3.89 for 6!

Finally, Nest for Two, is a beautifully photographed and inspiring home decor book. Their storage ideas showcase how mindful closet design can lend harmony and even an artistic quality to your home.

I would agree with your word usage. But then again, we are both organizer freaks.

Love you girl.

How about a crate of neatly rolled running t-shirts. Easier to see and grab.
