Restore order (and style) to your wardrobe with a new bedroom closet organization system and a repurposed piece of furniture.
No matter how small your closet, a new organization system helps you get the most out of its square footage (and better wear out of your wardrobe). Keep like-things together by incorporating two hanging storage areas in your closet. Here, a 72-inch panel system ($77.99) separates dresses from skirts and slacks, stored on the 48-inch panel system ($59.99).

Do you kick your shoes into the huge pile at the bottom of your closet? A shoe rack ($47.99 for three shelves) keeps them in sight and in better shape.

Two stacked Itso modular units ($39.99 each) provide storage space for frequently worn sweaters, bed linens, and handbags.
