    2. You can also try this trick with your cap collection using shower curtain rings and a curtain rod.

    Keep your fave baseball caps from getting brutally massacred underfoot. Learn more about it at Passion, Pink, and Pearls.

    8. Organize your clutches with a lid rack.

    To keep your clutches on-hand and in-view, organize them right-side-up in a lid rack so you can quickly grab one the next night you and your BFFs are going OUT-out.

    10. To get double the storage space, use S-hooks and dollar store baskets.

    Get your fave shoes and belts off of the closet floor with cheap baskets that you can secure to your wire shelving.

    11. You can also use a chain of S-hooks, or simply a chain, for vertical storage.

    To take advantage of every square inch of your storage, use simple wall brackets to hang items just about anywhere. It adds the equivalent of a second rack to your storage system.

    13. Keep your bag collection looking *pristine* with clear dividers.

    While the Polished Habitat shelving above is custom-built, you can get at the same idea with clear file organizers ($13 each) and wall-mounted pockets ($13.99 each) and sorters ($19.99 each). Use the file organizers to keep larger bags upright and keep clutches tidy with the pockets and sorters. To customize a top-notch system for all your bags, visit Polished Habitat.

    14. If you don't have a light in your closet, opt for a rope light.

    You can pick one up from a dollar store or Walmart for under $15. Secure it around the perimeter of the closet door for increased visibility.

    15. And keep your fave stuff off the floor with easy DIY no-slip hangers.

    Wrap pipe cleaners around the ~shoulders~ of your hangers to keep dress straps and sleeves from sliding off. To get the tutorial, visit In My Own Style.
