You have discovered the best apartment. Natural light is streaming in through the windows, the kitchen cabinets are large, and you can't wait to take a bubble bath in the garden tub. As you start unpacking your stuff into the closet, it becomes apparent you may have too many clothes. And shoes.

Here are a few tricks to make the most out of your closet space.
Hangers over Folded Piles!
