Create a system

Having an organized system at home can help you keep your bags under control. “Try to have a storage that makes it easy for you to see your options. Avoid putting them one on top of the other, because it will be harder to select. Likewise, your bags might get deformed,” shares Hannah.

Segregate your bags

Do you find it hard to look for your bag inside the closet? Segregating them per color or material will be a huge help! “If possible, arrange them according to color or even material. For leather goods, it’s best to air them once in awhile rather than storing them in closed containers,” the designer suggests.

Explore alternatives when storing your prized bags

"For bags that you regularly use, you can hang them on nice racks, or attach pegs on a wall for your bag display. Just a word of caution: do not display too many to avoid clutter,” Hannah explains.

Use display cases

If you have designer bags that you wish to display as a collection, you can use display cases. “For small bags that you occasionally use, put them in display cases, stylishly arranged together with some of your items in open shelves,” she suggests.
