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.
