When organizing the closet, one of the challenges is keeping belts, scraves, and small accessories in order. Aside from using baskets and trays, you may also utilize hangers! Let these six ideas guide and inspire you.

Paper Organizer

If you're also keeping your craft materials inside the closet, separate them from the rest of your things by repurposing a multi-tier pants hanger. Arrange the different papers accordingly to avoid crumpled supplies. Doing this makes it easier for you to see the different prints at a glance as well. 

Accessories Holder

Avoid rummaging through your closet just to find your favorite belt. Group them together with your scarves and accessories using a hanger. Simply stick three self-adhesive hooks onto a wide pants hanger so you can hang the different items. 

Arts and Crafts Dispenser

Aside from keeping your craft supplies organized, you may also use hangers as a mini gift wrapping station. Unfasten the twisted portion of your hanger on top, slip in the ribbon spools, then twist the top again to secure the hanger.

RL Tip: Place your hanger above your working table to complete your wrapping and crafts station. 

Coat Hook

Use an inverted hanger to hang your jacket, umbrellas, and other whatnots – just nail it securely onto a wall or door. It will also add a quirky touch to the entryway.

Magazine Holder

Use hangers to display magazines in your bathroom. You can even mark the page and start where you left off the next time you sit on the throne.

Shades Organizer

Instead of leaving shades inside drawers, you may turn them into decor pieces y hanging them in your bedroom. Carefully place them one-by-one to avoid broken glasses. Doing this gives you more storage space inside drawers and cabinets.
