For today’s topic I decided to enlist help, in order to share the very best closet organizing ideas with you and cover a variety of needs and situations. We’ll start with our bedroom closet and I’ll share some of my very own organizational tips with you!
When we moved into our home it needed so much work, from top to bottom. There was not a single room that didn’t need attention. Our bedroom included. As far as the closet situation went, it had one basic, average sized closet. And that was not going to be sufficient for both my husband and I.
So he got the existing closet, and we quickly created a functional, low budget closet for me.
Our room is an odd shape — it’s long and narrow. But we worked that to our advantage by creating a wall-to-wall closet across the expanse at the far end of the room. I really should share how we did that at some point, it was very simple and I’m sure it could be useful to those out there that don’t have walk in closets! For now, I’m going to stay on track and focusing on the organizing aspects.
I’m going to highlight a few of my favorite closet organizing essentials. These are time-tested, proven winners. All from the affordable Better Homes & Gardens line, at Walmart.
HANGING POCKET SHOE ORGANIZER
For more than just shoes! The slim dual-sided design holds 20 scarves. All kept dust free and easily visible with the clear design.
UTLRA SLIM NON SLIP VELVET HANGERS
The Huggable Hanger was created by Joy Mangano. This style of hanger is incredible at keeping bulk at bay and allowing more available space in your closet. If you choose another brand, look for a more substantial quality version. Some are very flimsy and not well made.
HANGING CLOSET ORGANIZERS
These organizers can turn vertical hanging-only space into horizontal storage for a multitude of items, from sweaters, belts and shoes, to even smaller more detailed organizers — like the divided organizer holding my wallets.
FREE STANDING FURNITURE
I don’t have a dresser, so I’m using a canvas covered wire shelf in it’s place. The shelves are perfect for my jammies, and I’ve got fabric lined baskets for my bras, panties.
Always keep an open mind when organizing. If you can’t afford actual built-ins, free standing furniture can be the next best thing. From a full size armoire, small dresser, chest, or even metal shelves… flexibility can be exactly what you need to utilize your space to it’s full potential.
Flex storage — these bins can be folded down when not being used, and are so versatile. They hold my hoodies and sweaters (I prefer to roll or fold my sweaters) and manage those bulky items really well! And my Summer items like swimsuits and cover ups are tucked away as well.
