Most closets have only one shelf above where the clothes hang. I measure the shelf, add brackets to hold it on both ends and depending on the length of the shelf a center support, if needed. You can only stack things so high and the added shelf lets you put seldom used items and use wasted space.
You can buy prefinished shelves at a home repair store and the cost is minimal.

Organize Plastic Storage By Labelling The Shelves!
In order to keep my Tupperware & other plastic storage in a structured place [and to help my hubby put it where it belongs!],I labelled the different shelves in the cupboard [yes-we have one cupboard devoted to storage of plastic!] according to SHAPE. The bottom shelf has all the circular shaped containers,the middle shelf has the squares/rectangles and the top shelf has all the liquid containers. It has helped in the ORGANIZATION OF PLASTIC WARE & helped my hubby assist me in putting it away!
