An organized shelf—whether it holds books, bags, framed photographs, or a prized toy collection—brings order and a sense of calm to any space. The secret to keeping your favorite things in good condition lies in how you care for it. Take for example a huge bag collection—how do you keep each looking brand new? We hope you don’t just stuff them inside drawers and cabinets as doing so can ruin its form and finish.

Aside from working on unexpected ideas to keep your favorite bags organized, you can display a few to create a simple vignette or to add personality to your home. A pretty shelf or display can boost the overall appeal of your space and make it look more streamlined. Maximize your free time by tackling your bag collection and organizing them. Let the photos below inspire you: 

Arrange your bags per size.


On a slim shelf with captivating frame, arrange your bags neatly on each tier. Place the biggest ones on top and the smaller ones below it. Clutches, handbags, and purses can be stored in acrylic organizers you can keep on the bottom part of the shelf. By doing this, you won’t have a hard time getting what you need and returning what you used.

Get sturdy hooks and rods.


Limited space? No problem! In a tight cabinet or storage nook, install rods and invest in big hooks that can carry the weight of your bags. Wall-mounted hooks and long rods can hold bags in place and turn your favorites into instant wall accents. Make sure that your bags are empty to make sure that the hooks won’t be dislodged. Take your cue from the photo above—arrange your bags then hang them neatly.

Take your cue from your favorite store.


Store displays are so captivating that you end up stopping just to admire the new arrivals. On your shelf, arrange your favorites per color, per size, or per use. Group clutches together and space them out accordingly to create a vignette. Letting your collection breathe helps you avoid a cluttered look that some shelves have. Pick only a few and keep the rest inside your cabinet.

Keep it monochromatic.


We have to admit, nothing compares to a monochromatic display. If you have bags in a similar color like black or white, you can put these on display together with your shoes. Use the photo above as your peg, separate the pieces in the same color and use it as your focal point. Group together shoulder bags and clutches to create a sleek appeal. Mix-and-match totes in different sizes to add a playful touch.

Do it by designer or by brand.


Are you fond of collecting bags by famous designers or do you love a certain brand? Showcase these for a chic look. Those who adore their investment, designer finds can put these on display together with the beautiful boxes. The finished look will surely remind you of a stylish boutique! Complete the setup with framed blooms and accessories in cute catchalls.

Showcase the ornate pieces.


Ornate bags or those with fancy details you can’t miss are décor pieces on their own. If you only have a few of these, use it to spruce up a shelf meant for clothes and shoes. A slim niche can accommodate small purses and shiny bags arranged neatly to serve as accents. The best part? You can change the look every now and then! You can put on display the bags you plan to use for the whole week so you can easily grab and go before heading out.

Simply line them up.


The easiest way is to maximize the space you have. If you have unused shelves at home, arrange your bags neatly—per size, per color, or per type—and keep it organized to maintain the clean and streamlined look. Schedule a regular cleaning session to keep dust and mold at bay. Bags with holes and irreparable damages must be discarded immediately. You can also donate some that you haven’t used in years and are still in good condition. Of course, you can always give some of your favorites to your friends, too!
