@Jennifer Matherne. An other option might be a system that utilizes rails. You attach one rail to the wall and everything hangs off that rail. When you move, lift the sections off the rail, unscrew the rail and patch the screw holes (one per wall stud). The one we have we purchased at Costo twenty years ago for less than $100.
It is seven feet long and made of melamine. The only problem we've had was a broken rod end, that the company replaced at no cost. It was made by Laminations,Inc. of Holland Michigan. I have to say this was purchased as a temporary fix but has held up so well there has been no need to replace it. When the closet it is in becomes part of the bathroom next year, I plan on moving it to another closet and getting another 20 years of use from it.

Katelyn1953, the system you are describing sounds very much like the ELFA system I just used in my walk-in & am about to use in my Garage. I have also used it to support the bookshelves in my Bedroom, which are beautifully finished solid timber from my late Father.
Easy to install, adjustible, modular & removeable.
Re the IKEA discussion : My next project after the garage is a small kitchen, where I plan to use IKEA. I have done so twice before & been pleased with the results. They also help with the design if you need help. This time I am planning more "back-saving" features, as age & injury is catching up with me. So we'll see how they meet that challenge.
Thanks for everyone's input. It is always helpful. Enjoy.
