Closet Tips

I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend!  I finally got around to cleaning out my closet and wanted to share two tiny tips that helped me.  I'm 100% certain I've seen one of them before, but not sure about the other.  Anyway, for those who don't know, here you go.

I have some hangers that have a grip, {my favorite are the Michael Graves for Target but I can't find them online} but I don't have enough and a lot of my favorite tops end up on the floor which is obnoxious.  To solve my problem, I attached the rough side of velcro to the top of the hanger.  I only have wooden hangers {I know, cue mommy dearest now...} but I'm certain this will work on plastic hangers too.  Such a quick fix.
















It works on small tanks and sweaters...and I'm sure anything else you try.

This is the tip that I know I've seen recently.  Rolling up magazines and placing them in your boots to keep their shape.


 I honestly didn't think it would work as well as it does.


Now all my boots are not flopped over in my closet.  And, I've put some of those stacks of mags to use!   

I'm sure you all have a ton of tiny tips for the closet, please do share!

  8. Great tips! I did some closet cleaning/organizing too...I switched out all my winter to summer clothes. I always keep the tissues that come with shoes/boots and stuff them in when I am not wearing to keep the shape. :)

    Hope you enjoyed the long weekend- what perfect weather we had!!

  10. Great Tips. Love the velcro idea. I have been using rubber bands on my wood handers but they always seem to fall off. The velcro will be perfect.

  17. Love these, have been putting cardboard pieces in my boots, but this is way easier than cutting up cardboard! My other tip would be hanging all of my scarves three to a hanger (hang them by folding the scarf in half, take the tow ends and put them through the loop... did that make any sence??), anyway, it keeps them much more organized!
