Statistically, the average woman owns up to 30 outfits for various needs in today’s society, a month’s worth of attire. In the 1930s that number was only nine. With so many outfits to choose from, you’re going to need shoes to go along with them, and consequently, a lot of closet space.
Whether you live in a big city like New York or you’re trying to fit more onto a tiny shared dorm room for college, the modern woman will eventually run out of space for all her ever-expanding wardrobe. Essentially, at some point, most Americans have more stuff than they have room in their closet. There are roughly 300,000 items in the average American home, and that’s a great thing, but it can also be overwhelming.
Below are a few closet organizer products you can utilize to help make the best of the space you have without sacrificing an abundance of your time and energy.
-Shoe organizers are your best friend. They can save you a ton of space and make it easier to find that missing shoe.
-Decorative home racks are a convenient way to store miscellaneous closet items to free up space for shoes and miscellaneous wardrobe items.
–Drawer carts are preferable for people who need to store items they do not want out in the open on racks or shelves. They can also be placed on top of dressers or other items to save even more space.
-Under bed organizers are great for rarely used items and articles of clothing.
Any one of these items would be a great tool to get you on your way to a more organized closet space. Ideally, using multiple items would be beneficial. One or two shoe organizers and a drawer cart could free up more room than you would think.
Most people consider DIY closet projects to be a lot of energy and know-how, leaving them thinking they don’t have the time to undertake these projects. Commonly, when you purchase products such as these they have to be assembled, but the home organization business has exploded into an $80 billion a year industry. Today, it’s more than twice the size it was in the early 2000s and rising at a rate of about 10% each year.
This allows for a lot of competition between sellers, with several offering a wide range of well-built, stylish home organization products, many with quick assembly requiring very little tools or none at all.
So the next time you trip over all those shoes spilling out of your closet, just keep these simple DIY closet tips in mind. Remember: you don’t have to be an expert DIY’er to get the best out of your clutter situation.
