How do you reward yourself? Some buy shoes, others prefer accessories, a chosen few buy books or a new tube of lipstick, while there are those who would love to splurge on bags. 

If you're the type who gets new arm candy from time to time, we're sure that you already have more than 15 pieces in your closet! How do you keep them organized? Do you use hooks, racks, and shelves? To help you out, we've put together helpful must-dos—and some pro-approved tips from interior designer Hannah Acab-Faustino. Check them out below: 


1. 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. Consider having glass dividers installed in your closet—this will help you see everything in one glance.

2. Hang more bags by using shower rings as hooks. 

Would you rather spend on a new tote than an organizing system? We know exactly how you feel. Save some extra cash by going the DIY route instead—all you need are shower curtain rings to create an instant bag storage! Hanging their handles from rings forces bags into a sideways position so they will naturally line up, meaning you get to store more pieces in a single row.

3. Organize your bags by color or type. 

Do you find it hard to look for your bag inside the closet? Segregating them by 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 a while rather than storing them in closed containers to keep them in good condition,” the designer suggests.


4. 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. This is perfect for changing bags in between work days! Just a word of caution: do not display too many to avoid clutter,” Hannah explains.

5. Try repurposing a hanging shoe rack as an organizer for smaller bags.

For those who are looking for an alternative, budget-friendly option—you can try hanging shoe racks! These affordable pieces are sturdy enough to hold clutches or party bags. Aside from that, they're usually clear so you can see what you want to use in an instant.

6. 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. Who says you can't enjoy your bags in the comfort of your own home?
