Why are the Elfa brand closet organizer systems so over-priced when the systems themselves consist of parts which are the same quality as much cheaper alternatives? I decided to create this blog to educate other consumers on how they can organize their messy closets without having to sacrifice a limb in the process.
I have four closets in my condo and wanted to install organizers in two of them. When I asked around for reccommended companies, a few people pointed me in the direction of Elfa and the Container Store. When I saw their setup which fits my closets ( http://www.containerstore.com/browse/Product.jhtml?CATID=68559&PRODID=71350 ) I really liked it... until I saw the price...
That system, at the time I had priced it, was over $1200 + tax on top of that! All that money for what? having my clothes hung up and looking nice? I was sure there were alternatives.
When I was searching the net for alternatives, I came across Rubbermaid Configurations ( http://www.amazon.com/gp/collections/B000K7HF4M/102-9568983-0515349?ie=UTF8&ref=cl%5Ftr%5Fdp ) and I was surprised! For something that looked so similar to the Elfa setup and did exactly the same thing - costing 1/10th of the price! I was a little hesitant - assuming that because one system was $1200 and the other was $120, that there had to be a catch... but there wasn't. I paid only $119 for my closet system (the Rubbermaid Configurations Deluxe Closet kit) through Amazon.com!!!
