Your closet – maybe newly purged for the New Year – can serve you even better with these sneaky storage ideas, all of them bargain-priced and some of them entirely FREE:
Purses and clutches stay organized on a shelf if you use a file organizer to hold them in position. My photo includes a tote bag folded and rolled, and a red purse inserted upside down because the base was too wide for the slots of the organizer.
Earrnings stay in pairs and easily accessible in a pill organizer, an ice cube tray or egg carton.
Egg cartons are free – which is great – but I prefer this plastic pill organizer because I can snap it shut and toss it into a suitcase – no need to select which earrings to take along.
Stack similar garments using interlocking hangers – the ones with a loop below the hook. Great for a group of shells and tanks in a single neutral. I use it for jade green tanks – that’s one of my personal super-colors so I have a cotton knit one, a sweater-y one and a silky knit one.
Don’t have the right kind of hangers? Just slip a soda can pop tab over the hanger and it will work the smae way. In fact, I like this approach even better because it keeps the cascade shorter. Now it doesn’t drag the floor in my 2-tier closet arrangement.
Sorry – I didn’t snap a picture, but one of my clever clients mounted rows of crown molding on a bare wall in her closet and hangs high-heeled shoes from it – pretty as well as practical!
