Today, I will be talking about organizing something near and dear to my heart - BAGS ( and jewelry)!
You already know that I am self-confessed Bag-aholic.
I love bags, be it branded or not, I buy and collect bags for their form and function. Although majority of my bags are what one might consider "High-end", my bag collection encompasses not only those, but a lot of really beautiful (to me at least) but not-so-costly bags as well. And today, I will share with you how I organized such a collection,
|Of course, a display is in order|
As you can see from above, I displayed my favorite ones and the ones sturdy enough to stand. I like enjoying my bags even if I don't get to use all of them a lot. And plus, they look nice even if their not carried - to me at least. ;-)
|The glass shelves and lighting made them look even better|
Of course, I have to tell you, I do put them inside their INDIVIDUAL DUST BAGS & do use old pillows to get them to prop up on a regular basis since I still need to figure out how to add glass doors to the cabinet itself.
TIP #2: Store in nice boxes
I added these wonderful pull out shelves in my bag cabinet, for my small collection of clutches and wallets. Inside the Hermes box I placed my silk scarves and the small wallets inside the Chanel box.
Other big bulky bags are inside boxes on the top of my cabinets.
I categorized my bags inside the drawers. I don't put them inside dust bags here, I just put one big dust bag that covers the top of all the bags .

Now let's look at how I organized my jewelry!
TIP #4: Hang what you can
|Pull-out hooks work well|
I hung my necklaces (Take note, not my bags, since it wears out the handles) according to lengths.
The shorter ones ended up in the pull-out in my bag cabinet, and the long ones on a Brass Floral Wall Art I re-purposed for such. It's always nice to hang things beautifully. You can check out my suggestions on Jewelry storage HERE.
You also know that my small vanity inside the closet is also just for storing jewelry...
|This Vanity which I got from IKEA HERE|
|Has a small mirror which is perfect for getting ready|
As you can see I placed my small earrings in individual acrylic containers so I can see and store them easily. The round ones are from the craft department of the Dollar Store and and square ones are from Crate & Barrel I bought years ago.This also makes it easy to choose and bring my earrings when I travel.
So that is my 2 cents worth of ideas when it comes to this topic. I still have one more thing to share about the Master Closet, and it's not at all pretty. Will share it next time.
Hope you have a Great week!
