What Is The Best Closet System?
Every household, from the mega mansion to the smallest studio apartment, has a closet or closet system – unless it doesn’t! 😯
That can be the measure of the tolerance for a small place, or the organization of a large one.
A studio apartment for example, is greatly enhanced for comfortable living, if it has a walk in closet with some built in shelving and cubes.
A larger apartment may have larger closets, perhaps the double sized six foot closets with the long hang bar and a shelf above.
In larger spacious closets, there may be a lot of wasted space without overhead shelf partitions, one or more low hang bar for shirts and blouses, and hopefully, a stack of shoe shelves, or a shoe rack below.
Do Closet Organizers Increase Home Value?
“According to Jayne Ehrens, Real Estate Professional for TTR Sotheby’s International, “Buyers today want a home that is move in ready, and when it comes to closets they want more than just rods and hooks. When potential buyers see a professional organizing system in a closet, it makes that particular house stand out from the rest and in today’s market that’s important. Conversely, when we are working with sellers and getting a home ready for the market, the first thing we tell them to do is to de-clutter and one of the easiest and most effective ways to do that is to get a professional organizing system. The financial benefits far outweigh the cost.” – Closet America
These experts go on to say that the cost of putting in closet organizers will add a triple of that value to your home. So if you decide you can spend $2,000.00 upgrading your closets, you will increase your home’s value by $6000.00.
A heavy duty portable closet organizer may be one addition that you can move from closet to closet, or into the garage or other storage areas, as you need.
In addition to upgrading your built-in closets, you may also want to add:
- A heavy duty storage cabinet with lock
- A heavy duty storage cabinet on wheels
- A heavy duty storage cabinet with drawers/doors/bins
- A heavy duty freestanding closet organizer

Create a Declutter Day For Your Bedroom by Mark Ramsey
Does the thought of spending an entire day decluttering your bedroom fill you with joy? Probably not – but it needn’t fill you with despair, either. The truth is, decluttering your bedroom can be satisfying, rewarding, and yes, it can even be fun, if you follow this simple three step plan!
1. Set Aside A Declutter Day
Rome may not have been built in a day, but your bedroom can be made clutter free in a day, no matter how messy you’ve allowed it to become. If you start early enough, it’ll be decluttered in less than a day, and then you can do something more interesting in the evening.
The trick is to plan everything in advance. Before you do anything, you need to take a good look at what you’re faced with. Get a notebook and make some notes. Write down all the clutter hotspots, from the closet to the dresser to the nightstand. Don’t forget to look under the bed!
Once you’ve identified the places in your bedroom where clutter tends to congregate, write down some possible solutions. This is the fun part, as you get to be creative. For example, if your closet is stuffed to bursting point, how about using the backs of the closet doors as hanging space? How about turning that space under your bed into a storage area, using wheeled drawer units?
As soon as you have your action plan, choose a day when you can devote proper time and attention to it. Circle that day on your calendar in bright red pen and write “Declutter Day” on it. Go out and buy anything you need in advance, and get plenty of sleep the night before. Set the alarm early.
2. Use A Declutter Day System
Your bedroom declutter day will be much more enjoyable and fun if you use a system. Start at the bedroom door and work your way around the room in a clockwise direction. First of all, get a laundry bin or similar receptacle and scoop everything into it that doesn’t belong in your bedroom – books, clothes, kids’ toys or whatever it may be. Take those things back to where they do belong and put them away. This will give your bedroom an instant declutter.
Go back and work your way around the room in more depth. Use the Keep, Trash, Donate or Sell system to help you decide the fate of each item you come across. Items that you intend to keep can be put back into their rightful place once you’ve cleared away all the stuff you’re going to ditch, donate to charity or sell.
All of this will give you space to implement the storage solutions part of your action plan. Have a break, and then return to the fray with new energy. Reorganize your bedroom according to your plan. Finish up by running the vacuum cleaner around.
3. Earn Some Declutter Day Rewards
Time to reward yourself for all your hard work. If you’ve followed the system in the previous step, you’ll be left with two piles – one for things to donate to charity, one for things to sell. Donating items to charity gives you a good feeling, and selling your old things via eBay or Craigslist gives you some useful extra cash. Either way, you get the satisfaction of knowing that your stuff will have gone to someone who truly appreciates it.
Finally, decluttering your bedroom will give you psychological rewards, as all that clutter will have dragged you down emotionally, whether you realize it or not. The sense of relief you’ll feel when your bedroom is restored to order is worth its weight in gold. Decluttering your bedroom can be fun and rewarding, so start planning your declutter day today!
