It’s that time of year again when we have to go through purging our purses. After all, with the start of spring comes the start of a new season, meaning that our purses need to be updated as well. Just like any other room in your house, your closet needs to stay organized. And, like other rooms in your house, purses can usually be kept organized with the use of a few key items. If you’re like us, you’ve probably already started purging your purses to prepare for this new season. So, to keep your closet organized, here are some tips on how to store purses:
Get rid of bulk items
First, get rid of any purses that you don’t use. Purge anything that’s old, doesn’t have sentimental value to you, or is just taking up space in your closet. This will help create more room for the purses you plan on using this season.
If you want to keep your purse from getting dirty, one of the best ways to do so is by using a pouch. Pouches are a convenient way to store purses and other jewelry. You can either hang your pouches on the inside of your closet door or on the inside of a cabinet.
Hang up your purses
One of the most popular ways to store purses is hanging them up on hooks. All you need to do is place a hook in the middle of your wall and then hang the purse from it. One thing to be aware of with this method is that, if you have a shelf below, be careful not to knock anything off. This should be an easy fix, though; all you need to do is put something like a shoe on top of the purse so it won’t fall off.
Another way to store purses is by hanging them from an over-the-door hanger. If you’re short on wall space, this might come in handy for you. You can also use this as an option if your closet has a door that doesn’t close all the way or if there’s not enough room between shelves for storing purses. The downside with this option is that you’ll have to take down your coat every time you want to get a new purse out of your closet.
If you don’t have many purses or want them organized neatly, keep them in boxes placed on shelves. The boxes should be large enough so that they don’t tip over when they are being pulled out and put back into the box. This will help make things easier when going through your collection and deciding which ones are worth keeping and which ones need updating.
Use a shelf system
Invest in a shelf system and you’ll be able to store purses while also creating space for other items. Shelves are perfect for storing purses since they don’t take up too much room, but they offer enough space to store purses in an organized fashion. A quick search online will help you find shelves at different price points so you can find something that fits your budget as well as your needs.
Hide zippers with accordion or tie straps
It’s never fun to see the zippers on your purses and handbags. They can be a little bit of an eyesore, and when you’re trying to keep your closet looking nice, they can ruin the effect. One way to hide them is by using (or installing) some sort of accordion or tie straps on your hanger hooks. This will allow you to keep your purses nice and tidy without any pesky zippers in sight.
Label with a system
Labeling your purses with a system will make them easier to find. If you’re one of those people who has more than 10 purses, it can be hard to find the right purse. To avoid this problem, try labeling your purses in clear plastic bags or boxes with a corresponding letter and number label. This way, you know what each bag contains and where to find it quickly.
1) Label with a system
2) Purge your old purses
3) Keep drawer dividers
4) Store handbags on hangers
5) Use an IKEA product for storage
6) Purge old items from other rooms in the house
With these six easy ways to store purses you will have a perfectly organized closet in no time. Plus, these tips will help you find your favorite purses in a hurry. The next time you pull out a handbag, it will be easy to decide what to wear.
Now you are ready to rock your closet and your new handbag.
