Last week I shared with you my 5 tips for keeping your kids closets organized. And while my children don’t have the most elegant closets on the planet, they did have newly installed closet systems. The old closets were very dysfunctional. They didn’t offer much storage. Some of the racks were hard to reach and they didn’t hold that much stuff. So I found some other closet systems that were very affordable and got the job done.
Thank goodness for Home Depot, right?! I mean seriously. If you have a DIY project, they usually have the stuff you need. So, when I needed to put in some closet systems for my kids, and didn’t want to go all custom, I found this. (affiliate links used)
This Rubbermaid Homefree closet system is genius! It is easy to install and it actually adjusts to fit the size of your space. First thing is first, empty the closet.
So, my son’s closet started off like this……
That’s it. 2 shelves, one of which he couldn’t reach. Not very functional. And after I purchased and installed the closet system (for around $100) it looked like this:
A level and a power screwdriver were all it took. I think my dad and I installed it in under 30 minutes. The hardest part was getting the old stuff out of there!
I used some colorful bins that we’ve had for ages to organize odds and ends. You can find some similar ones here.
I used the same closet system in my daughter’s closet as well. It all turned out great!
In just a couple of hours you could organize all of the closets in your house! How’s that for an afternoon?
