Non-hangable clothing storage recs

Just curious if any of you have a system for clothing storage that you find convenient?

My dresser drawers aren't big enough to accommodate all my clothes, and many of the pieces (like acrylic sweaters) shouldn't be hung up in my closet either. I have a big pile of clothes just layered on top of each other, on top of a chest. It's madness when I'm trying to rush out the door and want something buried in the pile (not to mention some pieces get wrinkled because grabbing a piece in a hurry musses up the neatness of Mt. Clothing's layers). Also, my current 'system' for woolens is an old plastic comforter bag. I'm thinking of browsing Amazon for storage solutions, but thought I'd check in with you ladies first :)

    Under the bed storage units are nice for sweaters, etc.
    From Michael Berg:

    Every person has a unique connection to the Creator that can never be extinguished, and every person has a great soul that can manifest important things in our world. To make a person feel less than they are because of something inside themselves, be it faith, race, or sexual orientation, is the greatest sin of all."

    I actually have a storage chest for the majority of my woollens. I brought it years ago as a set of three. They were all initially used to store odds and ends now I put woollens in one.

    I use under bed storage drawers for my sports clothes as it's quick to pull out in morning.

    They have those block shelves that you can put bins in for clothing (ikea) and I am about to get a bench to put at the foot of my bed and get bins to put underneath for the rest of my clothes.

    Here's an example: Although Im just going to put the bins directly on hte floor under a bench, I think itll be easier access. I also have a bed with drawers underneath. You can also buy a linen pantry type shelf/cabinet(they are usually narrow and tall so they dont take up a lot of space) do put stuff in. If you have enough closet space, you can buy those hanging things that is like a cloth shelf. I also have one of these. I just moved from an 1100 sq ft apartment with multiple huge closets to a big closet lol so I have had to buy a lot storage solutions!

    I use these shelf cubicles. They are sturdy, heavy, and simple to put together (I get them on ebay). I also use them in the living room for my entertainment center, book shelves, etc.

    I have the same exact "system" and I hate it! Good question :)
