I’ve owned similar products by different brands in the past, to see them lose shape and become both weird looking and dysfunctional over time. I stuff all compartments with clothes (and not just underwear socks etc either) with this thing and it still stays in very good shape, with no noticeable sagging, and thanks to the metal frame hanger at the top, no slanting to either side. Considering the price, this product is a real steal.
The good:the ‘shelves’ are nice. They do the job and feel sturdy. The side pockets are a huge plus. I love the fact that this has the side pockets. Overall it’s an average closet organizer with a bit of extra side storage. The bad:the hangers (metal loops at top to hang it in the closet) are smaller than your conventional hanger. As a result, this can be very difficult to place. It barely fit onto the rod in my closet, and as a result is a pain if i need to move it (i have to shove it on the rod with enough force, which i shouldn’t have to do). This is really my only complaint. If they had done something about this, i would have easily given this product five stars.

So – the size is perfect and it will serve the purpose i wanted (storing some old blankets both under a bed and along the top of a closet, protected from dust) quite well. The only point i’d note is that i assumed it might have some kind of collapsible bracing (for lack of a better term) on the inside, but no – it’s simply held in place by the contents you put inside. Not an issue for my purposes, but worth noting that you shouldn’t expect/require rigidity.
I think back to the days before i owned the whitmor 6351-1253-java fashion color organizer collection over-the-door shoe organizer, and boy were those some dark days. I used to walk to the bathroom in the middle of the night, and without fail i would stumble over one of my sneakers. I’m lucky i didn’t die during those late night escapades. In other cases, i’d have the perfect outfit on for the evening, and knew exactly what sneaks were going to be the icing on that perfect outfit cake. And then, like some sick nightmare, i could only find one sneak, the other lost, even after extensive investigation, dog interrogation, girlfriend interrogation, self reflection. . Just totally lost, gone forever. Until the next day when i would find it under the bed, by the backdoor, or something stupid like that (i think it was the dog, but he still hasn’t confessed. I mean my dog is obviously my best friend, but that doesn’t mean that he didn’t steal my shoes and then look me in the eye and swear that he didn’t). Well folks, those times are long behind me now.
This is a nice shoe solution for your closet. One important thing to note is that the little cubbies will hold a pair of shoes if they are very collapsible. Heels (probably no higher than 2. 5′) and keds and flip flops all work. Your running shoes will not and you will need two cubbies, one for each shoe. I ordered two of these things so fortunately had enough space but don’t be caught by surprise.
Whitmor Hanging Accessory Shelves Java : I absolutely love how affordable, simple, and sturdy this is. I have filled it with many large sized men’s shoes of considerable weight. Dress shoes, overstuff skate shoes, thick soled sports shoes, et cetera. The only issue i encountered was the hanging hooks being a tiny bit obtuse upon arrival, so once the full weight was in place they started to bend so much so that i had to manually hold one flat against the top of my door in order to close it. This was very easily, quickly, & soundly resolved by simply bending the hooks into a slight acute angle. This tiny difference gives enough leverage to the hook so that it will not bend back out of shape, and sits flush with the door. I mean this thing is a dream come true at this price & for small living situations. If you have any questions in regards to my quickfix (which is really only for the heavy loads) then please feel free to ask. This is such a good product that i couldn’t even deduct a star for the minor inconvenience – especially since i pushed this thing well past what i’m sure is the recommended weight. Please let me know if this was helpful & informative, as this is my main goal in writing reviews – to aid any potential customers in their doubts or in reassurance.
I needed to hang this on a wall that had hooks. The wire hangers are centered at the middle however so i had to break the wires and re-position the hooks so that i could hang it against the wall. If you don’t want the wires to snap then don’t bend it at all. They will snap if you bend/fold at all. It is very well designed and built and looks of high quality so i’m happy with the price i paid. There are 5 slots and 3 mesh pockets on each side. I thought it would sag if i put in heavy articles of clothing but it doesn’ti stacked 10 mens t shirts in one slot, 3 heavy duty jeans in another slot, and 2 thick hooded jackets in another slot. The bases for each slot are pretty sturdy, harder than cardboard. So my organizer is keeping its shape on the wall. What’s also nice is it’s flexible, even though i’ve fit 10 t shirts in one slot, i can still squeeze in 2-3 more because the bases can be pushed up or down. I got this to store my boyfriend’s work clothes in. He always has a hard time finding his clothes in our closet and shelves.
I’ve been looking, for ages, for a good, solid product to store my wrapping paper. I have too much paper for those plastic totes, and i could never find one long enough to house my 40′ paper rolls. These under-bed bags are a wonderful solution to my problem. And although they are called ‘under-bed’, i store all my wrapping paper in the garage. These bags are moisture proof and seal tight with the zipper. There are two handles, one at each end of the bag, to carry and even out heavy loads. I have about 20 lbs of wrapping paper and the bag is holding up just fine. I couldn’t find anything suitable, nor economically friendly.
