A Bedroom Closet Makeover
Armed with some practical organizing tools and a bit of ingenuity, Real Simple saves this closet from chaos.
Before: Cluttered and Inefficient
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.
Found In (and Tossed From) Jennifer’s Closet
- 7 power suits (with shoulder pads) from the 80s
- 1 electronic coin counter
- 1 fake potted orchid
