{Organising} How to organise and store your handbags

I don’t have very many handbags, but hubby has spoilt me over the past few Christmas’s with some beautiful bags as gifts.  To keep them in great conditions I want to store them with care and have them easily accecciable.  This is how I store them:

Initially I tried some hooks from Bunnings, however they didn’t fit over the rod very well.  Instead, I found these ‘S’ hooks at the local dollar shop, 3 for $2…bargin!  My handbags sit on the rail above my jewelerry area.

Did you complete part 1 of the decluttering clothes challenge?  See all my spare coat hangers, i’ve decluttered, part 2 coming soon 🙂

More handbag storage ideas coming on ‘Inspiration Saturday’

I was looking for those S hooks for a different project. Didn’t think to look in the dollar shop! Great idea for storing bags. But I don’t have enough wardrobe space to do that. Any other ideas?

What about creating something on the back of a door?

OMGosh what a great idea to use those hooks!! I will be keeping an eye out for some next time I am out and about.
I don’t have many handbags, an everyday one, and small going out one and maybe two others, currently all but the everyday one are hanging on the back of my bedroom door handle.
My sister is the Imelda Marcos of handbags though so I will definitely have to tell her about your hooks!

This is an awesome idea and I think I need to get rid of some clothes so I can fit my handbags in. You are so clever my friend. N x

What a fab idea! I’ve got lots of S hooks that I bought previously for something else. Now I can put them to good use! 🙂

What a clever idea, don’t you love $2 shop bargains!

For those who are limited in cupboard space and can’t manage this (like myself) I have another solution – I’ve always kept my handbags on a HAT STAND. You know those old-fashioned hat stands with arms out in every direction? You can still buy them at Copperart or you can pick them up for a bargain at Op Shops.

My hat rack stands in the corner of the bedroom just behind my oval mirror and serves as a beautiful display for all my handbags (too….too many… need to cull before it falls down!)

Great idea! I am super excited about the big walk in wardrobe I will have in a few weeks when we move into our new house, and want to get off to an organised start. My handbags are all over the shop right now. Now off to find me some of those hooks.

About 6 months ago I had a clean up in my 5yo daughter’s bedroom. She has a rail that runs the length of her cupboard which continues over the top of her shelves (only 2, so plenty of space left). I decided to use that space for her small handbags, carry bags, carryalls, necklaces, tiaras, other dress up stuff, lanyards, etc, etc. And, yes, I also found these hooks at the $2 shop. They are fantastic because we still only need to take one necklace off at a time and a heap fit on one hook.
