I fully agree with the previous comment.

Why or why. Do people keep so much stuff.

I have just bought my first home and I want to improve my master bedroom's wardrobe. It is good to know that it would be smart to take as much use of the vertical space. Installing tension rod shelves does seem like a smart thing to do. https://chi-kitchens.com.au/built-in-walk-in-wardrobe-albury-wodonga/

trishideas - folding sweaters - I have deep drawers in a built-in cabinet. With the sweater laying flat, arms out to side, and face down, I fold each sleeve over the upper back and then place a paper towel tube horizontally halfway down the sweater. I fold the bottom up over the tube so now my sweater is folded in half from top to bottom. The tube prevents a crease. Easy peasy! I have enough drawer depth so that the tubes don't all sit on top of each other and I also alternate the tubes front to back in the drawer. The drawers are also wide enough that I don't have to fold the sides of the sweaters. Hope this helps!

And for hanging shirts, etc, I found that pop tabs can be put over a thin flocked hanger and will hold another hanger flat against it. I don't feel those hangers are strong enough to hold more than one "attachment."
