9. It is extremely easy to make this cardboard DIY organizer which you can put in your small closet. Here’s how you do it First, Decide the size of your organizer, draw the templates on cardboard and cut out the pieces. Assemble the pieces to see if they fit. Make adjustments if needed. Assemble the side pieces and make sure every piece fits perfectly. Disassemble the organizer and wrap each piece with paper or fabric and secure with glue. Assemble the wrapped pieces again into the organizer and cover the seams with cardstock strips. Secure with glue. Now it looks like this. Wrap the drawers with paper and insert into the drawer slots of the organizer. The cardboard organizer is done.

You can hang your shirts on the hooks and find an alternative to storing clothes. It is an idea that is not used by many but is equally useful for those of you that are trying to squeeze things into your closet.

Think of storing small towels, your underwear, swimwear and other light clothes. It doesn’t cost a dime to use shoe boxes. There is no limit to what can be placed inside the shoe boxes.

13. Get an extra rod and place it inside your closet door. It is an effective way to make the most of your closet door. You can hang clothes and other things on the extra rod.

You can easily place them in your hanging area as it is the best way to utilize the entire hanging area. Use it to hang your belts and scarves in just one space.

15. One can use some rope and dowel for doubling the rod space. There are ropes that are being sold for hangers and hanging belts. Get a strong rope that is durable so that you can place as many items on it as possible. You can also use a wire of an old extension as rope if you’re out of cash.

16. If you’re out of closet space and are looking for other ways to store your clothes and shoes, then you can make use of your bed. Get a box and store unused clothes or shoes under your bed. It is simple and doesn’t take much time. By using this method, you can even open up more space in your closet, so that it is easy for you to take out whatever you need.

17. The attic is an amazing place where you can place just about everything. Get your boxes out and store all the clothes and shoes that you do not wear and store them inside the boxes. After you have stored and packed the boxes, you can leave them in the attic. This is exactly what people are doing these days. The attic can be a life saver at times. So, make use of yours.

21. Make the most of your bags and closet hanging space by storing your clothes in the bags and hanging them. Normally, we don’t use our extra bags that we used back in school. Jog your memory and find a bag which can be used for storing clothes.
