    We need to see a photo, with dimensions, and what you'd like to store there.

    Blankets/comforters can always be placed in Space Saver bags that will significantly reduce the space they consume.

    Always think in terms of utilizing vertical space via shelving, stacking see through totes with locking lids, stacking books vertically as well as horizontally placing them on shelves.

    You'd be amazed at the space you can save with creative folding of sheets, pillowcases, T-shirts, jeans. Fold socks in half and stack vertically in drawers, front to back.

    Get rid of items you haven't used in some time, through sales or donations. Cut back on number of scarves, hats, gloves, cleaning supplies, paper products, etc. Alternating items top to bottom will also conserve space, in many instances.

    2 pairs of slacks/2 skirts can be placed on one heavier hanger. Sleeveless blouses can be placed atop sleeved blouses.

    Shoes and boots can be stacked on multi tiered racks to save space.

    I love this idea and I'm seriously thinking of doing it to my own front closet!
