I’m sharing my closet organization project with you so you can start organizing your closet or just about any space in your home, today!
Organizing a closet or any space in your home can often be hard to get started. If you’re like me, you may have put organizing off a time or two.
I’ll share the organizers I used as well as useful closet organization tips that can be applied to different spaces in your home.
These tips have come in handy when organizing my pantry and then bathroom linen closet too.

Just about everything I used to organize our entryway closet is from Amazon.
All of the closet organizers can also be found in an idea list on my Amazon Storefront too.
There are different ways to use the organizers; some bins I also use in my bedroom closet, pantry and kids rooms.
In the picture below, I showed how I used each organizer.
To shop the organizers: In the image below, click on each separate item within the collage to shop the item directly.
Entryway Closet Organization : What I used
1. Rolling Storage Cart :
I love the rolling storage cart because it has wheels and can be moved to different spaces in the home.
We had this before in our playroom and still wheel it out to the kitchen table for arts and crafts.
Its holds and keeps construction paper, coloring books and other art supplies organized in one place.
This is one of my favorite additions to the closet.
Throw away those broken crayons and neatly store your remaining crayons, colored pencils and markers in this turntable!
Everything is easy to access and is kept neat in one place!
I separated the set that arrived and used some in the closet and placed the others in the pantry.
It’s great when organizers have multiple uses and can be used throughout the house. I placed some envelopes and a few other office supplies that I use frequently in this bin.
I used these bags so much and loved them that I ended up ordering them twice.
They’re great for storing puzzles, legos, and games. They can be used for so many things!
These are another versatile storage set that can be used in lots of spaces as well!
I like how the smaller two bins fit inside the larger one if needed. I use these to store party supplies and other seasonal decor.
These baskets are awesome!
They are super sturdy and since I measured the shelves ahead of time, I knew they’d fit perfectly! They hold so many things!
I love these baskets. We use them in the kids’ rooms and have also had them in the playroom.
We placed one in the closet on a top shelf to store towels that we don’t use often.
I first bought these organizer bags to store some of my winter clothes.
They come in different set sizes and I’m using them in the entryway closet for storing sheets and blankets.
These organizers used to be in our playroom and I moved them to the closet recently.
There are several on a top shelf containing seasonal decor and several on the bottom floor of the closet holding computer paper, large mailing evelopes and school workbooks.
These are a versatile set of organizers that can be used in lots of spaces in the home.
I had gift bags, bows and wrapping paper scattered between different rooms.
It’s so convenient to have all gift wrap organized in one place!
I’m storing different types of tape in that container.
Closet Organization Tips
- Start by emptying everything out. This will help you get started. Throw away items or make a donation pile for anything you don’t need or want anymore. Take everything you’re keeping and start grouping them into piles of items that go together. (Example: puzzles together, office supplies or gift wrap)
- Measure your shelves and line them if necessary. This part is helpful if you are shopping for new organizers, bins or containers. I use painters tape to measure (won’t stick to the shelf) so I can visualize what a bin will look like on a shelf and know ahead of time if it will fit.
- Start with one item to begin organizing and placing items back in your space. If you’re purchasing organizers start with ordering one or two things, get those items in your space and then assess what needs to go in next.
- Make things easy to reach. Place items you’ll use a lot on shelves or in areas easy to reach and items you use less often on the higher shelves or more out of reach.
- Label. This step is optional but label bins or organizers if it would make it easier for you to find things.
