6 Must-Haves for Your Closet

These tiny essentials can help keep your cabinets clean and organized


The best way to avoid a messy closet is by establishing an area for each type of clothing or set of accessories. If you're looking for ways to keep it organized, here are 6 must-haves and easy projects that you may want to consider.

Pull-out baskets

Place wire or plastic baskets inside your closet to make it easier for you to get your socks, belts, scarves, and other essentials.

DIY Alert: Go the extra mile by personalizing the baskets. Add labels that you made on your own or use color coded baskets to identify the contents of each.

Make use of the vertical space inside your closet by installing hooks for belts, ties, and other necklaces.

DIY Alert: Keep hooks uniformed by having a wooden piece where you can attach them.

Drawer organizers

Never lose another earring or bracelet by using drawer organizers. Aside from accessories, you may also use the organizers to keep your beauty essentials organized. 

DIY Alert: Create your own drawer organizer by recycling old shoeboxes or even a jewelry box! Wrap it using colorful paper or decorate it using washi tape. If you're feeling extra creative you may event paint them.

Cake stand

Utilize colored plastic bins to store your towels, beauty products, or even your shoes. You can also purchase rattan bins if you want to have a laid-back, tropical vibe.

DIY Alert: Add bin tags to each bin so you can easily find what you're looking for.
