Closets: useful home storage, or black holes of chaos?

As I’m cleaning out several closets and finding a lot of trash and broken items just shoved into the unseen recesses, I’m thinking that closets are really not the most useful storage.

Unless, I suppose, one springs for a lovely closet organizing system, that makes dark unseen recesses a thing of the past.

Why did we keep empty boxes? Dirty old shoe inserts? Or, for that matter, single shoes without any mates?

I believe that the Container Store often has Elfa closet system sales in the beginning of the year. This may be the year I succumb.
