Go above and beyond with your spring cleaning this year and add organizing to your to-do list! It’s easy to let your closet get messy and cluttered in the busyness of life, but with the right methods, you can utilize all your space and keep it clean. These tricks will not only keep you organized but can hopefully help you optimize your space and fit more accessories. We’ve put together some simple closet hacks to help you more efficiently store small items like belts, hats, scarves, and shoes!
How to Store Belts Correctly
There are a lot of methods to store belts, but the best way is to hang them up. Using regular hangers is the easiest option, but using multiple hangers takes up a lot of space in your closet. Plus, this can lead to your belts getting separated from each other in your closet which can be a pain when you’re running late. Try buying specialized hangers that can hold multiple belts at once! You can also create your own using shower curtain rod rings. Make sure you buy rings that open and clasp shut. Simply hook the rungs onto the flat part of the hanger and you can hold 2 or 3 belts on each ring!
Another easy method is to roll your belts and store them in your drawer. Just don’t roll your leather ones too tight as that can damage the material! To take it a step further, you can buy storage containers designed to organize rolled belts.
Storage Ideas for Hats
If you own a lot of hats, an easy way to store them is in a box, basket, or bin. Similar-styled hats can be easily stacked on top of each other in a container and then placed on a shelf or on the floor of your closet.
If you want to show off all your designs or don’t have much closet space, try creating a hat wall! Clear a section of the wall to put up hooks and hang your accessories. Not only will this save space, but it’s also a cute design! However if you don’t have the space to dedicate part of your wall to storage, you can also try hanging hooks on the back of your bedroom door.
Best Ways to Store Scarves
Scarves can also be stored hung up or rolled tightly. The best way to hang them up is with special ring-style hangers to organize multiple scarves- you can find them at most department stores. You can also use the same hack explained above: use shower rings to hold multiple scarves per hanger.
Another strategy is to roll them tightly and store them in a basket, bin, or drawer. Simply twist the scarf around your hand until it forms a ball, then bring one end of the scarf through the hole where your hand is. Pull tightly until it creates a knot that’s convenient to store!
If you’re looking for a way to display all the pretty patterns and colors of your scarves, try buying a decorative ladder. This unique accessory will provide some charm and personality to your room!
How to Store Lots of Shoes
There are several options to store shoes in your closet depending on your available space. You can even use a combination of storage options depending on your number of shoes! One of the most convenient options is tiered shoe racks or cubbies that can be stacked on the floor or placed on top of shelves. You can also buy plastic or fabric cases to put each pair in to keep them even more organized.
Another option is to buy hangers that have stacked spaces for shoes to fit. You can also buy large shoe organizers that fit on the back of your door.
If you have limited space in your closet, you can store seasonal shoes and boots under your bed in an organizer or a bin. You can buy options that are designed to easily slide out from under your bed.
