My closet doesn’t look like this—not even close—but there are resourceful ideas in this well-ordered walk-in that anyone, with any kind of closet, can replicate. Best part—none of it costs too much. The key is to have the proper accessories: bins, baskets, and dividers to assist you in keeping your closet neat and functional. And don’t stick to just the wardrobe storage section of stores: Look at products designed for the kitchen, bathroom, and home office as well.

What’s great about them is that you can see what’s stored inside, so there’s no need to rummage around for that favorite tee. Target also offers their own version: Their 13-Inch Rectangular Wire Basket is $8.

But they’re designed to be used (and to be useful), making them a great organizing tool for the closet. While they’re currently sold out via La Garconne, lookalikes can be found from PaperMart ($24.41 for a set of six).
