Oakland, CA (PRWEB) December 3, 2008
Through the years, consumers have consistently rated organization as a top item on their busy to-do lists. A recent University of California study found that despite the economic downturn, Americans are in a "storage crisis". In the study, 75% of 32 families had accumulated so much excess stuff in their garage that they no longer had room to fit a car in the space. After losing extra pounds, the second most popular New Year's resolution is to finally get organized.
Storage and organization is big business, estimated at 6 billion dollars per year and growing. According to the International Housewares Association (IHA), consumer spending on closet and storage items has increased an average of 20.5% per year during the last five years. This makes closet organizers and storage units the fastest growing segment of houseware products. A recent IHA study projects that this growth will continue through 2010.
Many companies are stepping in to fill this organization demand with an array of unique products, providing consumers with plenty of custom choices. Closet organizers and other storage products, which have traditionally been limited to home improvement stores, have made their way into the newly expanding online arena of home organizational solutions.
As the New Year approaches and Americans have resolutions on their mind, many families will turn to companies such as online retailer Build It Yourself Closets. Build it Yourself Closets caters to the consumer demand for closet organization and the popularity of a thriving Do-It-Yourself culture. They offer web video tutorials, an extensive manual, and phone customer support to assist in every step of the building process. Typically when a consumer purchases a product that requires construction, a black and white manual is all the support that is provided. With a Build It Yourself Closets system, personalized support from experienced industry representatives is part of the package. Build It Yourself Closets also utilizes new forms of social media, such as online video, to offer an unprecedented level of customer support that sets it apart from other organization competitors.
For the savvy consumer with a free weekend to construct a home organizational system, the internet offers many storage solutions at substantial savings. Seeking out a permanent solution is a challenge, but fortunately the availability of permanent and unique solutions are expanding everyday. Standard methods of organization have moved beyond the old standard of plastic bins. Modern organization now provides a new custom closet organizer solution for every family.
