11 Clothes Storage Ideas to Transform Your Closet
With one afternoon and a few of these storage ideas, you can turn an overstuffed mess into an organized functional closet!
1. Pare Down Your Possessions
First, free up space by going through your wardrobe and removing items you no longer wear, no longer fit, or are no longer your style. If you have trouble saying goodbye, remember your clothes can find a new home by donating, selling and handing-down to friends and family. Next, set aside clothing you can store seasonally and rotate in as the seasons change.
2. Store Unused Hangers in a Magazine File
Keep loose hangers from falling to the ground and untangled in a magazine file. This way they’re ready and easy to transport for laundry day. Keep the rest of the items on the closet floor in a storage bin or tote, making it easier to pull out from closet corners or clean behind.
3. Hide-a-Belt Rack
Keep belts and accessories tucked away until needed with a pullout rack like this one by Rev-A-Shelf. This works great for ties, necklaces, and lightweight scarves too!
