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.

Wire Gym Baskets

Wire Baskets with Handles from The Container Store
Above: One of our perennial favorites, The Container Store’s Stackable Wire Storage Baskets with Handles are sturdy, attractive, and available in a range of sizes ($9.99 to $21.99). 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.

Standup Sorters

Canvas Nesting Bins:

White Storage Boxes
