Whitmor 3 Tier Closet Organizer {Review}

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

I was so completely excited when we found our house; it was a long and grueling process but so worth it. When I imagined moving from an apartment into a house I was so looking forward to having so much space; so much so I wasn’t going to have enough to fill it. When we found our house I felt like something was missing. Nothing important like floors or anything like that but something still that I just couldn’t put my finger on. Then we moved in and as I was unpacking the 794 boxes, I opened a box labeled “linen closet” and then it hit me. There wasn’t a linen closet in our house! What was I going to do? Well they, towels sheets and all things “linen closet”, found their way into almost every room in our house. A towel here, a sheet there, and no where to be found when my hands are dripping wet are the dish towels. I was so completely relieved when I saw Whitmor’s 3 Tier Closet Organizer. I knew right where it was going to go and how I was going to use it!

whitmorOne thing our house does have is height, thank goodness too because My Man J is 6′ 4″. We have a lot of space underneath the shelves in the closets in our rooms. That’s what made this organizer so perfect! It’s narrow enough to fit under a common closet shelf. Yet you can load it up with all of those linens floating around your house. Here’s a look at Whitmor’s closet organizer from their amazon store.

I’m going to share with you the chaos that was our extra room closet. It has kind of been the catch all place for anything and everything. It was so crazy and because I didn’t have a solution for the craziness everything kind of just got plopped in there. It’s not what I wanted to have happen but as you can tell, that’s exactly what was happening.

Now look how amazing it is in there! The 3 Tier Closet Organizer was just what this poor closet needed.The assembly was totally straight forward and you don’t need a single tool to construct it. Everything snaps together quickly and easily which My Man J was totally happy with. The shelves snap on and the drawers pop open and easily slide into place.

As you can tell I’m using it for towels and sheets. You could easily use it for hats, shoes, or even just clothes. My Man J even thought I could use it to organize my crafting supplies as well. I was thinking I could stack plastic storage bins on the shelves or fill the drawers with all of the left foot socks I have lying around our house. Really though, I take both socks off at the same time in the same place. How do they get separated?

All in all I love this organizer! I can think of so many other ideas for this than just for towels, and the best part is that I have the space! Are you in need of some extra organizing help in your house? Maybe you could use one for toys in your little one’s closet? I highly recommend this organizer. I think it’s good quality for it’s purpose. I wouldn’t use it for something as heavy as power tools but it’s perfect for linen closet items. I’m sure you’d love it too! Now that I have a place for all things linen, I really need to learn how to fold a fitted sheet. Do you know how?

This is the first of two Blog Hops hosted by The Review Wire this week!  Be sure to follow along below and then check in with The Review Wire for her grand prize of a Zumba Exhilarate 4 DVD program {RV $60}!
Anything-Goes-Giveaway-Hop-November1Our giveaway here on Dandy is being sponsored by my favorite company to work with, Brylane Home!
But before we get into the review item, let me explain our apartment and our need for some help.  I don’t know how old our apartment is, but there are sure some funky things about it.  Clearly it was originally built at a time when the only way to heat the house was through a wood burning stove in the kitchen.  There is only one bathroom, with all the pipes exposed, and its on the main floor (with no bathroom upstairs near the bedrooms), and what really kills me are that there are NO CLOSETS downstairs!!  It was almost a deal-breaker, but we were really getting limited on options in trying to find something deleaded in Boston.  I still love our place, but we’ve had to get a little creative with storage.

No closets means a lot of visible clutter and our mud room has become the dumping ground.  I think the biggest problem is the variety of shapes and sizes of things that need organized.

Brylane Home offered us the 5-Tier Metal Closet with Hanging Rod to help in our Fall-cleaning frenzy around here, and it has been the best thing to rock our mud room!  It came in a number of compact pieces packaged extremely well and extremely hard to separate!  For the best, I guess.

The instructions are kind of intense because there a just so many steps to putting this together!  Follow the directions and you’ll be fine.  Two women (myself and my sister-in-law) were able to put it together in probably 45 minutes.  Approach it calmly and the instructions will be straightforward and everything you need is included.

Ta-da!  Once put together, this is VERY sturdy!  Lots of nuts and bolts in several directions holds everything together and gives you the peace of mind that it will hold a lot of weight.

There is a place for everything!  I love that everything is off the floor, with compartments all up the right side, and the long open space up top.  The clothing rack is high enough from the bottom that you can hang coats and still store shoes below without much competition for space.  The coat rack feels like it could even handle a child swinging from its rod.

My only criticism is that I wish more of the swirly designs up the sides were right-side-up hearts instead of upside down.  I kind of think of butts instead of hearts when I see them.  Maybe its a well-known style I don’t appreciate.  Its still gorgeous, regardless.
IMG_8197This metal closet has been just the ticket as we’ve been pulling out more winter coats and accessories.  There is a place for everything, the mud room looks organized and contained, and this structure is not at all bulky or cumbersome.  I love having this in my home!
