I stumbled upon an organization idea for my purses that solved a long time storage issue,
and I love it. Since I got a lot of excited feedback on the jewelry organization idea posted
earlier, I thought I'd share this one, too.
My purses have long-lived in the spot designated for them in the top shelf of my office closet.
I liked the idea of having them out of sight and all in one location, but getting them in and out
was always a hassle. The whole short-girl, high-shelf dynamic didn't work and was made
worse by my insistence to hold onto too many purses, including ones I don't even use
anymore. They'd get tangled up and pulling things in and out of the space was stressful.
Not anymore! First, I thinned them out -- getting rid of a half a dozen older, cheaper and
out of style purses. Next, I repurposed a wine rack that came in our buffet. It fits like a
glove in the top shelf of my closet and each compartment makes the perfect sized nook for
a purse or two. Now each one has their own space, they don't get tangled together, it's easy
to slide them in and out, and I can see what's where with total organized clarity. I love it!
The photos don't do this org project justice. (It's a tricky height and angle to reach with the
camera.) Hopefully it's clear enough and you're able to get the idea ... shelf, wine rack, purses,
What at-home projects are you working on these days? Have you found a home
organization solution that really works for you? If so, I'd love to hear about it.
