Tip # 1 Use collapsible laundry baskets

Use a collapsible laundry basket so you can collapse it and store it neatly when you’re done with your laundry. It’s also small so it won’t take up so much space.

Tip # 2 Store pants vertically

It’s a challenge to store pants. You can either stack them or roll them, but then you don’t know which one you want to get.

Using a pants hanger, you can store your pants vertically just like what they do in some boutiques. This hanger saves you space because you can see each pair of pants well.

Tip # 3 One-tone velvet hangers for your closet

Don’t just save space, do it beautifully. Why not use velvet hangers for all your clothes? Choose one color and see how it transforms your closet.

It’s one thing all boutiques have in common. It’s aesthetically pleasing and your clothes will not fall off because of the velvet coating.

Tip # 4 Choose a bra hanger

Bras can take up so much space, that if you try to fit them in one drawer; they end up losing their shape. Store bras properly and keep their shape by using bra hangers.

It saves space, keeps your bras in shape, and you can see each one as they are stored vertically. You can also use this hanger to organize tank tops.

Tip # 5 Maximize closet spaces with hooks

Using extend-a-hook is another way to organize and save space. You can put it up if you need to store one item. Then just pull it down and extend it when you need to store more items. You can store bags, coats, hats, hangers, towels, and even pants.

Tip # 6 Add some chain hangers

If you have limited closet space, you can use chain hangers. On each chain, you can hang your clothes, so that’s one like a 10-in-1 chain hanger, which saves you so much closet space.

Tip # 7 Fold your clothes easily

Save and organize by folding your clothes and stacking them vertically. We’ve seen this viral folding clothes board before, and it works wonders. If you love how they fold clothes in boutiques, this is what you need.

Tip # 8 Organize all your jewelry

Love jewelry, but you don’t know where to store them? We don’t want to have tangled pieces of jewelry, right?

Use stackable jewelry trays and use them as it is, or lay each tray on your drawers as organizers. Looks amazing and accentuates the beauty of your jewelry.

Tip # 11 Save space by using a one-piece shoe organizer

What if you’re limited in space? You can still have shoes if you know how to store them using a space-saver shoe organizer. Slide one shoe below and one on top. This doubles the number of shoes you can store.

Tip # 12 Use drawer organizers

Organize your clothes and store them with labels. It would also help if you have organizers to keep socks or undergarments properly stored.

Tip # 13 Use shelf stands

We can’t just pile up clothes, they end up falling down. If you can find a good shelf stand, invest in those. They become dividers and add support. It’s like having multi-sectioned drawers.

Tip # 14 Organize your sunglasses in an elevated way

Another thing we need to organize is our sunglasses. Keep them in pristine condition by choosing organizers or stand for sunglasses. This is also common in boutiques, which will also add a chic vibe.

Tip # 15 Boutique-style bag stands

If you’re a bag collector, don’t just leave them in a box to be stored away. Free your closet and just use bag stands. You get that boutique vibe while freeing storage from your closet.

Tip # 16 Aesthetic clutches dividers

Don’t store your clutches in one drawer and let them hide there. Sometimes, you even forget about them. Store them upright by using dividers, so you can visually see them.
