Annual Closet & Storage Summit Conference

There are only a dozen reasons why* . . .

. . . anyone comes to this site.

See if any of these apply to you.

I began my closet career in 1984. The purpose for this website is because many people along the way helped me on my closet journey,

and now I am giving back.


"If only I had had this type of resource 37 years ago, I would have saved myself hundreds of thousands of dollars in costly and avoidable mistakes."


Jeff Klein – CIA Director
