Starting the new year, we’ve focused in the LOOKING GOOD online community on organizing the contents of our closets. Here are a few of the tips we’ve been discussing.
If your closet is double-hung, maximize visibility by putting your bottom garments (pants/slirts) on the top rod and the top garments (blouses, sweaters, jackets) on the bottom rod.
Keep top garments from slipping off by using the Home Basics non-slip hangers from Wayfair. Thin profile lets you fit more garments into a given space, whilethe textured surface is easier to get items off compared to the traditional velvet or flocked styles. Alternatively, I also like the swiver-hook plastic hangers that make it easy to hang all my garments facing the same direction.
For pants, I love the “Z” style MAWA pant hanger, also from Wayfair. It stores pants in shorter space without forming a at the knee level, and lets you quickly slip the garment off the lower bar . Plus the higher profile means you’ll have more space on the shelf below the pants for other items.
Camisoles and tanks are effective, affordable wardrobe stretchers. Keep them readily accessble on a multi-hook rack — screw-in (Brush Bronze Belt Rack – Wayfair.com) or over the door style (super-affordable from Dollar Tree) – or just a row of ordiinary cup hooks from Lowe’s.
What are your favorite garment storage methods?
Wow thank you Nancy a few quick tricks goes a long way, love the hooks for camisoles!!
Yep – those skinny-strap items are a miss on coat hangers and they get lost in a drawer. Their own little hanging area is such a great answer.
Btw I love using “S” hooks to hang my folded jeans by the belt loops
SO you hang them directly from the rod via the hooks?
Thank you for the tip on the MAWA pant hangers. I ordered 10 to try them and I agree they are amazing. I’ll be ordering 10 more. My husband wants them too for his pants and jeans.
Glad you like them – thanks for letting me know.
