If you hang out with me on Instagram, you know that we’re in the middle of 31 days of decluttering our homes. Week by week we’re cleaning out all the excess stuff out of our lives. This week was the bedroom – so I thought I’d share five closet hacks that actually work. I know all of these work because I use them – and love each and every one.
Five Easy Closet Hacks
Need more hanging space? Simply take the tabs from soda cans and loop one hole through one hanger and then let it hang down. Then slip another hanger in the bottom hole and it will double your space for free!
Tired of clothes slipping off the hangers? Simply put a wiggle of hot glue on each side of the hanger and let it dry, then put your clothes back on and no more slipping!
Got a scarf addiction? Loop them onto coat hanger to hang them up and keep them all neat.
Hate floppy boots? Use cardboard tubes from wrapping paper: cut them in half and use packing tape to secure them together. Slip them in your boots and they’ll stay neat (I’ve used the same set over a year and they still work great!)
This is one of my favorite new tricks – a fast folding method for t-shirts. The video above from YouTube was so cool that it got my husband to give it a try. If you can’t see the video, click here to watch on the site. (P.S. – I make no money from it, just thought you’d like it as much as I do.)
Have more tips? Share them in the comments – I love learning new tricks!
And, although it’s not a closet hack, I highly recommend making sure your closet is bright enough that you can see everything. I didn’t even realize how dark mine was until I change my bulb! With the quick change of from my old bulb to this new Cree Bulb made a huge difference. No more mixing brown and black – yay! It also helps with getting your makeup colors correct, too – so double win!
