Hi there I am Shari Feldman Krandel and I am a senior designer at Valet Custom Cabinets and Closets this is my personal closet and I wanted to show you baskets and using our continuous top shelf. So at the very top up here, and I hope I don't blind you with the lights, I have baskets. So I've got 9-10 inches of space up there. And I put these cute little baskets up there I love a label. I'm not gonna lie, I love a label maker. Uso you can see that I've got this labeled for hiking and that's like some of my long-term hiking stuff. I've got some ski stuff up there and it's just a great, this area down here, this is my go to zone. So this is where when everything's super accessible and up here is just things that I don't need as often, but I want to get to and I either keep a stepstool nearby, which I have in another closet, or here's a hack, I'm only five, four.

But if you take a hanger, I can grab it on the top there and pull this over. So I can get to it easily. So for us petite people it's another way I like to use baskets over here. I've got these nice big baskets and I keep things that I don't use that often in these, and I pull it out kind of like a drawer. This is only evening bags and they're just all neatly tucked in there. And this one is just kind of canvas bags and big totes and stuff that are a little awkward, but I'm not in them that often, so they can just be up here. And then this one is like everything beat. It's my beach hat and a fun beach purse. And so it's just everything beach. And then I just have one place I have to go. So I'm just, like I said, a naturally organized person. So I always want like things together and I also want it to look really cute. That is a requirement. So I have all these cute little baskets up there. All right, so make use of all of that space even at the top.
