How to Organize Your Cluttered Closet with Just One Trip to IKEA
IKEA is a go-to resource for everything from affordable kitchen countertops to woven storage baskets—so it should come as no surprise that the Swedish superstore also carries some of the best closet organizers. While IKEA's beloved closet organization system (hello, PAX) has the power to transform a closet, the store is also full of smaller organizing solutions for those who aren't looking to splurge on a complete closet makeover. Here, we've rounded up some of IKEA's best closet organizers. Add just one or mix and match them to customize your own system, no matter your budget or the size of your closet. With your pants, sweaters, and purses organized where you can easily spot them, you'll shave minutes off of your morning routine.
