									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

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
