One project I have been continuously deferring since moving in last August (!) is organizing my closet. It is currently under-optimized — there is an entire shelf that runs around the top of my closet that is completely empty, while bins around the baseboards are overstuffed. I would like to get into a tidy habit of placing all my out of season clothes at the top of my closet in bins but have been too distracted for a full year by higher priority items! Anyhow, my goal is to tackle the closet this summer. Below, sharing some great organizational gear for the task…
HANGING GARMENT BAGS — I LIKE THE IDEA OF GROUPING OUT OF SEASON AND/OR IMPORTANT DRESSES IN THESE — PROTECTIVE, ORGANIZATIONAL, AND SLEEK LOOKING
SLIM VELVET HANGERS — THE BEST, AND COME IN TONS OF COLORS; THE VELVET FABRIC HELPS KEEP EVEN SLINKY MATERIALS ON THE HANGERS
PURSE STORAGE BIN — A GOOD WAY TO KEEP HANDBAGS FROM JUST ENDING UP IN A HEAP ON A SHELF
ACRYLIC SHELF DIVIDERS — A MUST-HAVE
FOLDABLE STORAGE BINS — LIKE THE COLORS THESE COME IN
FABRIC CUBES — I ALREADY HAVE A TON OF THESE SO WILL LIKELY BUY MORE TO FULLY LINE THE TOP OF MY CLOSET
UNDER-CABINET LED RECHARGEABLE LIGHTS
SHEARLING AND ACRYLIC STOOL — SO CHIC
LINEN LAUNDRY BASKET— I HAVE ONE OF THESE IN MY SON’S ROOM; A NICE ALTERNATIVE TO THE DOMINANT WOVEN STYLES
ROPE HANDLE STORAGE BINS — THE HANDLE IS A FUN TOUCH AND WOULD MAKE IT EASIER TO PULL DOWN FROM A TOP SHELF
SCENTED OVAL — GREAT WAY TO KEEP CLOTHES AND CLOSET SMELLING HEAVENLY
Even more closet organization finds here…
P.S. Food storage finds here.
P.P.S. How else do you organize your life?
P.P.P.S. Praying by name.

Help with scarves please so they do not take up tons of room but also are not a folded up mess when I am running late and want to wear one…
Hi Nancy! I keep all of my silk scarves folded in squares, separated by tissue, in a decorative box like this:
It’s a bit tedious but worth the time to fold and return each time because this method truly preserves the scarf! This is how Hermes recommends you store their heirloom quality styles. I have a stack of a few slim boxes like this — you could buy one in each of the colors offered so you quickly know which scarves are in which box, i.e., spring ones go in the white box, winter ones in the black. If that’s too tedious/fussy, I would consider rolling them up and stowing them in a compartment container like this:
If you’re talking about winter scarves, I’ve had the best luck keeping them folded in stacks using bins like these:
There are also hanging options but these just never work for me – I find them really annoying to remove and put back in, and they end up being really bulky.
