How To Organize Your Handbags

Updated on May 21, 2013

Organizing Your Handbags

End the frustration of looking for the handbag to match your outfit by organizing your handbags.

Is the top of your closet a pile of accessories? Or is it the bottom of your closet that has your bags stacked? Can't find that special one that you just had to have to match that outfit?

Not only will you end the frustration of looking for it but you will also prolong the life of your bag by keeping them neat and easily accessible, they will keep their shape better than being shoved and flatten in your closet.

How To Organize Your Handbags

  1. Go through your closet and take out all your handbags and purses.
  2. Go through every one you find to make sure that they are empty. You never know what you may find.
  3. This is a great time to clean your bags as you go through them. Clean the ones you want to keep and those that you no longer use, want or are damaged can be thrown away or given to your local charity.
  4. Decide where you want to store them
  5. Decide how you want to store them, hanging, on the back of a door or in a cubby.

Where To Store

Once you have cleaned and organized your bags it's time to decide where to store them.

  1. An area in your closet, on a shelf, on a rack on the floor or hanging. Neatly arrange them on a wall shelf or the top of your closet. They may take up more space, however, standing them up is better than laying them flat.
  2. Under the bed
  3. Hang them off hooks, over the door racks or on wall pegs.

      I was looking for a cool way to hang all my daughters' purses and handbags in her bedroom and this was the only helpful site I have found on google to take care of that. I will be buying another as a christmas present for my sister who will end up using all of these hooks conveniently. Thanks squidoo so helpful.

      Good ideas. My bags are in two drawers and take up a lot of space.

      I say "you can't have too many purses" so this lens is right up my alley. I love the park a purse idea. I bought an antique hall tree and hang my purses from the many hooks.

      I don't have a lot of purses. If I did I'd get the Park-a-purse. You are so organized!
