Closet Storage Hacks

196922-Happy-Hump-Day-EveryoneWhen I was a single mom, we lived in a double wide trailer.  I had a HUGE walk in closet with lots of space.  I couldn’t imagine having anything smaller.  Was it filled with clothes? NO!  It just had lots of space to store things.

Now, in the condo my closet is a constant battle which I’m always losing. First of all, it isn’t very big.  I have two racks to hang clothes on because I honestly thought it would be better. I must admit, I am rethinking the decision.  Between clothes I wear, clothes I hold on to just in case, and storage of some other random crap, it’s like a time bomb ready to explode.  I know, not the best advertisement for someone who wants to help YOU get organized, right?  Well, this is a year of being accountable and it includes sharing the good, the bad and the ugly!  I do LOVE helping others get organized….

I’m trying to get a handle on it – of course with using some Thirty One products BUT also with some other hacks I found in the black hole of Pinterest….. Here are some of the ideas I found which could help you…

Use a soda tab to hook hangers together.

A shoe rack can hold a lot more than shoes.  You know all of those scarves or belts or maybe even your tank tops.

Keep a kitchen bin in the closet for outgrown clothes.  Put a plastic bag in it so when it is full, you can just pull it out and head to your local donation spot.
