What's the best low-budget item you've ever bought or built for your walk-in closet ?

We have large walk-in closets but don't have the funds for proper dressers. What kind of closet organizer can hold jeans, shirts and sweaters and has a drawer or bin for socks and underwear?
Right now I'm focusing on my 7 year-old son's closet. He has a four drawer IKEA dresser that's falling apart and we need a replacement solution. I'm not going to spend another $200 for a dresser that won't last. He also has the builder supplied wire shelf clothes hanger. It would be a lot more useful if it was lowered by several feet. I was thinking maybe I should rip it out and lower it so I can install some inexpensive shelving on top using shelving standards. Has one done this before?
I know basic woodworking so I'm not opposed to building something custom but I'm not good enough to build drawers. I'm open to all ideas though.
