Then, go to a nearby hardware store and purchase low cost organizational shelving, closet rods, hanging shelves and anything else that can provide another drawer, shelf or hanging space to the closet. Usually, simply tightly organizing a closet with wall to wall shelving, one or two clothes rod, and some hanging shelves that easily can be dropped from a closet rod will double your current closet space.
