No closets?

We are moving to a new apartment this weekend and there are no closets. At all. What suggestions does everyone have on what to do with all of that stuff? Thanks!

Re: No closets?

  • Definitely utilize under your bed for storage, and think about some unique ways to store things.  For the back of the doors you have, buy hooks or hanging organizers so you have places to put things. Consolidate and purge - things you haven't worn in over a year should be donated or trashed, determine which cleaning products you use the most and find others that can clean multiple surfaces that way you don't end up with 20 different cleaners.  If you have a wall by your entry, buy a tall pantry with a door so you can store your vacuum and brooms or hang your coats. Take advantage of other space and use furniture that can be used for more than one thing, i.e.: a bench that has cubbies below for shoes, an ottoman that the top flips open for linens. Also, get some containers for under sink cabinets that can be stacked, that way you can take advantage of vertical storage.  You may also want to consider magnet boards and you can attach magnets to small items and place on the boards, that way you can store things on walls.  
  • I think you should buy some easy to handle baskets in which you can keep you stuff say clothes and other important things till you can buy closets.
