It may seem strange to say, but I have found that little kids like nothing less than nice closets. I actually found this out myself when I was quite young. I used to love to hide out in the closet. It was so much fun. It was a big walk-in closet, and was the only thing that I liked about my new house. I was mad that we had moved, you see, and so I did not want any part of it – despising living in a new house like that. The fact of the matter was that my room had a whole new hiding place, and all I wanted to do was hide.

One of my favorite parts of the closet was the closet organizer system. We had great closet shelves in there. They were closet shelves made of solid mahogany. A lot of the house had been redone with drywall, but these old wooden closet shelves were left in place. When I was a little kid, I could actually sit up on the closet shelves, although my mother would chide me whenever she caught me at it. For the most part, however, she would just leave me to my own devices and let me enjoy myself. If my favorite place to hang out was in closet storage systems, what did she care as long as I was out of her hair?

Of course, I did really like those big closet shelves a lot, but as I got more stuff, I had to use some of them to store my toys, games, and clothes, not to mention my toiletries. At first I did not like to have to give up parts of my hiding space, but after a while I started to really like the whole thing. I would hide things on the closet shelves, arranging all of my games in different patterns so that I could have a prized possession tucked away behind something else. I do not to this day understand why it was that I was so easily entertained by my closet shelves, but it did not prove to be a fleeting obsession. On the contrary, I have gone on to be a full time organizer, helping others to find the right, magical way to organize their own closet shelf, and from there, their own life. I have kept that fascination that I first had as a child.
