If you’ve built a vast collection of purses and handbags, chances are you’re wondering the best way to store them—especially in the smaller space like apartment living. Check out some of the ideas below:
Use Over-the-Door Organizers
Over the door organizers are exactly what they sound like. Items that hang over the door to organize. They aren’t just for shoes. Their pockets are perfect for storing clutches, small purses, and other accessories. Simply hang it over a bedroom or closet door, and you have an instant storage solution. Plus, it keeps everything in sight, making choosing a purse for the day a breeze.
Shelf Dividers in Closets
Transform your closet shelves into purse compartments using shelf dividers. These are especially useful for larger bags that need more support. Not only do they maintain the shape of your bags by keeping them upright, but they also segment your collection for easy access.
Hooks and Pegboards
Wall space can be an unexpected savior. Install hooks on an empty wall (check with your landlord first to make sure it is acceptable and that it is small holes) or behind a door to hang your purses. This keeps your handbags off the floor and decluttered, and also serves as a decorative display.
Clear Storage Boxes
Transparent storage boxes are great for keeping dust off your purses while still letting you see their contents. Stack them on shelves or under the bed (using bed risers to raise the bed). It’s a protective and space-efficient method, especially for those special bags you don’t use daily.
Rotate and Declutter
Apartments can require regular decluttering. Consider rotating out purses each season, keeping only those you frequently use easily accessible. The others can be stored in less accessible areas, like higher shelves or under the bed. And remember, it might be time to donate or sell a bag if it hasn’t been used in a year.
