    My walls are 9 ft. tall, and I desperately need to store more things

    in my closet (including large empty boxes) . Does anyone have any

    ideas that utilize the top 3 ft. of a closet ?

    I recently put in a second shelf above the one normally found in most closets. Doubled my space for things seldom used.

      My problem is living alone, and not being stable enough

      to use a ladder to install another shelf.

  • My closets are stuffed to the ceiling, but I only have 8' ceilings. Empty boxes? I have a lifetime shoe, purse and accessory collection. You can't get a cracker in my closets.

    Place items vertically, rather than horizontally, to consume more vertical space.

    advanced aging ! Thank you for taking the time to help me.
