So I have a problem. I do not buy shoes or really own that many clothes. Instead I buy bags and jewelry. I have a TON of bags and purses. I have waaaay to many earrings and necklaces (I'm starting to really like braclets too!!!). Over the years of living in extremely small places…like one room or hey sharing a room smaller than my bedroom with another person (yay college)…I have found some extremely interesting ways to organize my jewelry and bags.
I have a really nice, HUGE suitcase that I use to travel on week long vacations (usually these "vacations" are just going to my parents house). I have previous stored this in my closet and that worked well. Now it is housed under my bed which works even better because I hardly ever use it.
Inside my suitcase, I store all my extra bags that I travel with or use just occassinally (aka the ones in the above picture). Why just keep the suitcase empy? It's a huge hollow thing that takes up room. Put stuff in there baby!
My purses have always presented more of an organizational challenge. Here are some things I have tried:
- In my apartment in Athens, I used them as wall decorations. I placed command hooks on my wall and hung my purses on the hook. It was an extremely easy and convient storage method but not very decorative.
- In my last apartment, I used over the door hooks. The problem with this is I had too many purses. They stuck out and the door wouldn't open even half-way.
- My mom's kitchen counter which has always ended with one purse in the trash can and me digging through the trash to find my wallet. Convienent but not practical.
How do you organize your purses, bags, or suitcases?
