A Bedroom Closet Makeover
Armed with some practical organizing tools and a bit of ingenuity, Real Simple saves this closet from chaos.
Florida mom Jennifer Hochman (pictured here with daughters Rachel, age three, and Monica, five) stashed everything from bedding to art projects in her walk-in—with no linen or coat closet, she didn’t have a choice. Real Simple burrowed in to turn the chaotic family catchall into a high-functioning haven of storage and style.
