Not all of us can afford a luxury walk-in closet the size of New Hampshire. Some of us must make do with the space we've been allotted, which we all know is way too little. Here are some practical ways to introduce less chaos into the area of your home you would first rescue in case of a natural disaster. — Ellen from Nouveau Stitch
Shoe Wheel - $65
Having one of those off days where you really can't decide which shoes go with your outfit? That's no problem when you have this handy shoe storage spinning-wheel do your choosing for you — but please see the enclosed disclaimer absolving the manufacturer of responsibility for poorly coordinated ensembles.
Homz Dry Cleaning Bag - $21.51
Keep that bundle of "dry clean only" clothing out of sight by hiding it in this unobtrusive storage bag. It's great to grab and go. Of course, make sure you secure a small loan from the bank before you redeem your claim check.
Platinum elfa Mesh Closet Drawers - $134.97
These mesh drawers allow your clothing to breathe, eliminating DSDO (disgusting stale drawer odor).
Hanger Hamper - $7.99
Excess hangers take up room where space is at a premium. Purge the hangers and store them in their very own hamper.

These are perfect for eliminating shoe odor, especially from 20-year-old hiking boots that someone insists are "just getting broken in" despite a curious black "insole" that appears to be breathing.
White Wire Shelf Dividers - $7.99
No more leaning tower of sweaters! Brilliant!
Modern Armchairs - $1,475
If you have room to actually sit down in your closet, you're my hero. Lounge on this tufted wonder while you ease on the Louboutins — or it makes a wonderful laundry pile–holding station. Your choice.
IGLU for Handbags and Shoes - $52
This is the best way to display your precious handbags, or it's just a colorful reminder of how many thousands of dollars you've invested in bags you've probably only used once.
Boost Step Stool - $29.99
This is a slightly more practical solution than dragging in the suspension ladder for getting to those skinny jeans up top you like to revisit from time to time.
Contemporary Hooks And Hangers - $5.99
If you keep your scarves this organized, the reality show Hoarders will never, ever come sniffing around.
Komplement Storage with Compartments - $20
Roll em up and put 'em away. Clean socks by the pair.
SKUBB Clothes Cover, Black - $9.99
These garment bags are guaranteed to conceal your latest designer acquisition from prying eyes; however, the Visa statement is all on you.
