Makeover a Closet While Elfa Shelving Is on 30 Percent Discount

February 1, 2011 | By | Comments (0)

My house has three closets — one in each bedroom and an itty, bitty, tiny one under the stairs on our first floor. Obviously, we use the one in our bedroom for clothes storage. My husband, my 19-month-old son, and I share this closet. The closet under the stairs holds digital media that needs to be climate controlled for my husband’s business. This leaves our second bedroom closet as the primary storage for our entire house.

Since both my husband and I work from home, our second bedroom is our current office. Without any other built-in storage in the house, we had to find a way to make it meet our needs — and Elfa came to our rescue:


We call it our “Mary Poppins” closet, seeing as so much stuff fits into the space. This picture is a little old (I’ve since destashed my entire yarn collection and replaced it with toy storage for my son), but for the most part it’s a current representation of how we utilize the storage. I’m impressed by how much we can fit into it, and how organized all of it can be.

I’m a huge fan of the Elfa shelving systems — my desk setup is also Elfa — and always recommend them. That is why I want to let you know that between now and Tuesday, February 15, the Container Store is having its annual Elfa sale.

All Elfa shelving is 30 percent off, and installation is also at a 30 percent discount. Now is a great time to redo a closet in your home to increase and/or improve its storage while prices on Elfa are low and temperatures outside are frightful.
