Episode 058: Under-the-Stairs Closet Organization



This week I’m talking about how to organize that awkwardly shaped closet under your stairs for our third week of the Spring Cleaning Series (now affectionately known as the “We can do better!” Series).


After a quick recap of the beginning episodes in April about countertops & entryways, I discuss how to get this storage closet organized in 3 simple steps!


Whether it’s being used for holiday decor, memorabilia storage, an activity closet, your luggage and surfboard collection, an adorable kid cave for book reading and making sweet memories, or a catch-all for everything you own, it should definitely be working best for you and your family!


Using The 3 E’s Philosophy, let’s maximize that space to its fullest potential and have your future self thanking you for investing the time in a good purge, donation of unused items, and outfitting it with the proper organization!
