Well friends, the time to say “Sayonara” to our cold weather gear is almost here. It’s out with the old and in with the new around these parts. If you’re anything like me, the urge to spring clean is REAL. There’s just something about decluttering that puts my mind and soul at ease, anyone else? Regardless, packing up your winter gear to make room for all things spring can be a daunting task. But don’t start stress sweating yet. Today we’re sharing a few tips and tricks when it comes to shoe and clothing storage, making your closet purge a breeze! *To the tune of Let’s Get Physical* let’s get organized.
Okay okay, I get it. This doesn’t look like the Hail Mary of accessory storage by any means, but it absolutely gets the job done without taking up much space at all. This purse hanger has four rotating hooks for hanging and layering handbags and clutches. Bonus: It also works well for belts and scarfs!
Scarf storage can be tricky. If mine don’t have a “home”, they typically end up crumbled and stuffed into some random spot of the house. Chances are, you’ve seen this handy dandy tool before. If not: Introducing your new best-friend. This scarf hanger has 18 loops [in various sizes] and also works for hats, belts, and ties!
Shoes: Hanging Storage
We can’t talk about shoe storage without mentioning these guys. We’re sharing two sizes; smaller for the basics [bonus: this one can fit handbags too!] and a larger option that works well with boots! If you’re lacking closet space for hanging options, keep scrolling.
You know what they say, shoes are girl’s best friend. If you’re anything like me and shoes take up the majority of the space in your closet [more than I’d care to admit], these storage containers are a must-have. They’re totally stackable and help protect your footwear during their off-season and hold their shape. Available in several sizes for flats, booties, and tall boots.
These boots were made for walking [but it’s almost spring and I’m ready for sandals instead] and that’s just not what they’re going to do. If you’re lacking the closet space for hanging storage options, consider utilizing the space under beds. Just pack ’em up and slip it under your bed frame until next year. Easy peasy. As usual, this container would work fine for packing either clothing OR shoes– whatever works best for you. PRO TIP: Keep in mind how far off the ground your bed sits. This one is 7″!
My favorite storage options are under-the-bed storage options. Out of sight, out of mind, am I right? This organizer is a similar option to the hard-shell container listed above, but a slightly shorter option if your bed frame sits lower to the floor. I love that the removable dividers make it completely customizable! Again, this would work great for both clothing or shoes. The world is your oyster.
If you have the additional space for it in your home, a free-standing clothing rack is a great storage option! If you couldn’t tell, ours lives in the basement. These are great for getting bulky winter coats out of your day-to-day closet space. Plus, it fully zips to protect your gear until next season. As an added bonus, this one is super lightweight and easy to move around.
