With three kids in the house, it's always a struggle to keep everything neat and tidy. You would think the children's things would make the most mess, but sometimes it's mine. I don't have so much that I don't know what to do with it. However, some things are just difficult to store. One of the things that I find so annoying to try and organise neatly is accessories. From shoes to jewellery, they can end up in tangled piles, with nowhere appropriate to put them. Luckily, there are lots of storage solutions you can use, and you don't have to have an expensive walk-in wardrobe. Here are some of my suggestions to keep your accessories in order.
A lot of women (and men) end up with piles of shoes and nowhere to put them. So they all end up in a heap at the bottom of the wardrobe or kicking around the hallway. There's no need for it, though, because shoes are some of the easiest accessories to store. You can go for the cheap and simple method by throwing everything into a box. But if you don't want to rifle through them every time you need a pair, a shoe rack is what you need. You can get lots of different choices, from wooden cupboards with pull-out drawers to fabric hangers. They save space, as well as helping you to get organised.
If you love bags, your collection can get out of hand. And where are you supposed to put them all? Don't worry if you went a little overboard with your last order from Purse Obsession!
You can still store all your bags neatly, and without damaging them too. The first thing you should do is get rid of any that you no longer use. Throw away any that are falling apart, and give others to charity. Keep expensive bags inside cloth bags to protect them from scratches. A hanging bin with separate compartments can be one of the best things to use to store bags individually.
Storing your jewellery can be one of the greatest challenges when it comes to accessories. If you have a lot, it's even more difficult. Necklaces are one of the most difficult because they can tangle around each other so easily. To solve the problem, hang them up on a jewellery tree or even put them in individual clear plastic bags. Rings are easily organised with a ring display box, which you can easily find online. You can also get mesh stands for your earrings, so you just have to poke the stud or hook through the back.
Belts can float around, never quite finding a home. However, you have two options for storing them. You can hang them up on individual hangers; try doing them up if they have a tendency to fall off. The other option is to roll them up and store them in a drawer or box, or on top of a shelf.
Sorting out your untidy accessories isn't too hard once you put your mind to it. You just need some spare time to begin sorting it all out.
