- Keep a Count of the Items and Components
Before you begin to put your closet together, it’s important to take note of all the parts plus pieces. Store them in their respective bags and don’t interfere with them until you need to use them. You can use a tray to organize your parts and pieces and to prevent them from getting misplaced.
