While some buy clothes, books, and shoes as rewards, there are those who can’t get enough of pretty bags. We’ve seen walk-in closets with shelves dedicated to all kinds of bags—from sparkling clutches and sleek shoulder bags to sturdy backpacks and designer picks. If you’re one of the many who own more than 10, a clever organizing system may come in handy. Aside from utilizing shelves and cabinets, tiny essentials and a few unexpected must-haves can help you keep your bags in place and in good condition, too:

1. Wire baskets

We often see wire baskets in kitchens and bathrooms, as many homeowners use it to organize different ingredients and toiletries. If you're low on space and you have a free wall in your bedroom or closet, a couple of wire baskets can be useful. Use it to store some of your clutches and mini bags. Pick the colorful ones to create an instant wall accent. Find wire baskets at CW Home Depot.

2. Shelf dividers

Many homeowners depend on shelf dividers to maximize shelves and cabinets. Do the same when organizing your bags! As seen in the photo above, you can line up your bags and clutches neatly, then keep it in place with dividers. These essentials keep the bags from rubbing against each other which may cause damage. Find shelf dividers at Wilcon Depot.

3. Hanging organizer

A pretty alternative to hooks installed behind doors is a hanging organizer. Use it to keep your favorites accessible and in good condition. Depending on the size of your bags, you can fit at least two in one tier to maximize space. Find a similar organizer at The Landmark, Makati City.

4. Shoe/towel organizer

Similar to how you use a hanging organizer, shoe organizers can also hold handbags and clutches. Consider hanging yours inside cabinets to maintain the clean and sleek look of your bedroom or closet. Find a similar piece at MUJI and Habitat.

5. Rods + S-Hooks


Maximize the available cabinet space by installing an extra rod dedicated to your different bags. Once you've installed the rod, add the S-Hooks and feel free to organize your favorites. Space them out evenly to properly distribute the weight of your essentials. Find rods and S-Hooks at True Value.

6. Magazine and file holders


We use them to keep important documents and a few good reads in place, but did you know that file holders can help you organize your pouches, clutches, and small bags, too? Shop for acrylic and cardboard options at National Book Store, line them up inside your cabinet or on a shelf, then start grouping your favorites together. You can do it per color or size so you can get what you need easily.
