Bag Organization

I am self-confessed BAG-AHOLIC.

Although by looking at our closet you couldn't tell because of how I treat my bags...

See? Bags on top of each other

Overflowing all the way to the floor
I didn't want to use one of these...
because I didn't have the hanging closet space for it.
And I didn't want this too...
... because all the reviews were not great on this cardboard organizer, plus with both these options, a lot of my big bags won't be able to fit in them anyway (I'm a big bag lover)!

Well, one Saturday afternoon, I decided to put a stop to all this "cruelty" I give my precious bags and made sure I will treat them right from now on!

Here's what I came up with...

I decided to put some of my bags back into their boxes. I have yet to label them when I took the picture but I will do so soon. 

I also placed my smaller bags inside these...

and I absolutely love it!
How I wish these came in a much bigger size and with a lid too!
I would definitely get them for all my bags if they came in different sizes, but alas, it just came in this one small size. :-(

I placed the other bags in their dust bags to protect them as well. The ones inside the paper bags are also inside dust bags.

Now, I know where everything is at, and hopefully avoid the pitfalls of getting my bags deformed and dirty from storage.

Now, if I can only find a solution to organize my shoes..... ;-)

Happy Organizing!

  1. Hi Vel! You definitely came up with a good solution to the bag problem. I have cubbies for my bags, but still have an overflow, so I may have to look into those clear boxes. Jane

  2. Love your bag storage ideas and I adore your bag collection. Gorgeous.

  3. Oh sweetie, it was a little messy, but once you get your hands to it you do such a great job! I love those transparent bags just perfect for them! My daughter Sofia is like you, kind of a bagholic with precious and gorgeous bags. Last time I was at her house they were all is a big table, lol! I'll show her your arrangement.

  4. I love your ideas...I don't have nearly this many but I'm always looking for ways to keep them clean and in shape. I stuff mine with tissue paper to keep them in shape.

    Thanks, Vel. Now I need the space!!

  5. Hermes. Burberry, Gucci. Louis Vuitton. Prada. You have some great ones.......

  6. I need you at my house - how cute are the acrylic boxes?! Off to do a little organizing…

  7. Hi Vel! Oh, I'm like Ron! Look at these designer purses! Wow! I love how you've organized them too! I really like those acrylic containers. Thanks for popping in to see e and hope you have a great week.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  8. I love to collect bags too! Purses, sunglasses, and flip flops are taking over my closet! Lol! I think you came up with some great ideas!

  9. Great solution Vel. I think those acrylic boxes could be used for so many things. Awesome bag collection!

  10. Vel, my bags are in dire need of some tlc too! Love, love this organization idea! Thanks for sharing!

  11. Ha!ha! You and I have the same disease. I have an antique French armoire that is dedicated just for my purses but it is still in Natchez. So for now, my purses are all over my closet. Thank you so much for prayers for our sweet Rea....Christine

  12. Your purse collection is very impressive, Vel! I love the clear file cases--what a great idea. I'm a purse minimalist (surprise, surprise) but I still like to splurge when I do get a new bag. My husband surprised me with a L.V. Speedy a couple of years ago, so I won't be adding to my bag collection anytime soon!

  13. That looks like a pretty cool way to store and organize your handbags, Vel! When The Man renovated our closet, he built in purse storage, and I love it! He did pull a little sneaky and counted my purses before-hand and only made slots for that many.....if I want a new bag, something has to go! Well, that might have been his plan, but I have other places to stash the extras!

  14. I have a bag addiction too! I think I have accumulated over 60 bags over the years! Love the way your organize your handbags, so practical and beautiful!

  15. I am ordering those clear plastic file boxes TODAY. I have the same problem, I'm a BAG-A-HOLIC and do not care for them they way that I should...imagine me literally throwing them up on the top shelf of my closet because I can't even reach up there to set them. Sadly, I did not keep all of the boxes, but I do have all of the dust bags so I can put them in their respective dust bags and then into the plastic bins and late the bins. You have inspired me to clean out my closet! GREAT organization tip!!!

  16. I'd love to see the bags outside of their boxes/dust bags! Looks like you have some interesting pieces there!


Thank you for reading my blog! Hope you can stop by again sometime! Have a Wonderful Day!!
