Admittedly, I’m a little behind. I have a good reason though.
I wasn’t ready to come back yet.
No long, dramatic story. No list of desperate excuses. I just needed more time.
But now I’m back and since it is still January – the month of clean slates and fresh starts – I’m jumping on the bandwagon and sharing my favorite closet organizing ideas! These aren’t fancy, or expensive, or complicated but they work. Day after day. Month after month. Year after year.
MEDICINE “CABINET” STORAGE
Who says medicine has to go in a medicine cabinet? I put ours in a set of inexpensive plastic drawers and added some cute DIY labels. Now when someone needs a band-aid or a cough drop they know exactly where to look.
TENSION ROD SHOE STORAGE
You’ve probably seen this idea before – two tension rods ($3 – $4 each) spaced to create a floating “shelf” for your shoes. It’s ideal for heels but could work for flats too. TIP: If you’re storing your shoes on a traditional shelf, arrange them in an alternating heel-toe-heel-toe pattern. They take up less space that way.
One from the archives, I still use this upcycled storage cabinet today. It’s the perfect size for my jewelry collection and I love that the drawer lets me hide some of my mess. You can’t tell in this photo but it also stores all of my earrings. Click HERE to see where.
I cobbled this organizer together using a package of shower curtain rings and a wine glass rack. Not only does it keep my scarves off the floor but puts them on display so I can see exactly what I have to choose from. See all the deets HERE.
So those are my faves for the closet. Hopefully they will work for you too.
Do you have a go-to organizing trick that helps you keep it together? Do you use traditional systems or upcycled “junk” like me?
