    1. Get a hanger designed specifically to hold your favorite camis and tanks that are typically kinda hard to store.

    2. If you've ever struggled trying to figure out how to store your boots, consider filling them with inserts or storing them in a very handy hanging boot file.

    3. Keep your purses super organized with a hanging purse organizer designed with clear pockets so you can browse through your collection without having to pull out everything.

    4. If you have a deep closet, an over-the-door closet rod is great for adding that extra hanging space you desperately need.

    5. Or you can create that extra space by adding a second rack for clothes — it's super easy to install, it just hangs on your current closet rack.

    9. Try easily removable inserts in your drawer to give everything its place — they can hold your lingerie, socks, underwear, and bras! Plus they're made of a mold-proof fabric for perfect storing nearly anywhere.

    10. You can also organize all your drawers with adjustable honeycomb inserts that can hold your socks and undergarments.

    11. "Install" a four-shelf closet system that requires no drilling, no tools — it snaps together and grips to the floor and ceiling for support.

    12. If your shoes are bigger than most shoe storage holders accommodate, try a hanging organizer made for shoes up to a men's size 16.

    13. If you have floor or shelf space you can also use a tiered shoe shelf to store your treasured collection of footwear.

    14. Or just go ahead and upgrade your shoe storage game with a rotating shoe rack.

    15. Separate and organize everything on your closet shelves with adjustable, slide-on steel dividers.

    16. Or get a set of sturdy plastic baskets perfect for organizing all your miscellaneous clothing, beauty products, and accessories currently filling up your closets.

    17. If you're short on drawer space and want to hang your pants, try a pants hanger that can fit five pairs while only taking up the room of one hanger.

    18. You can also get super organized with a scarf hanger, capable of fitting 23 scarves, belts, or even ties.

    19. Speaking of ties and belts, if anyone in your household has swarms of them, try a hanger designed specifically to hold them — best part is, they're also great for hanging tank tops.

    20. Or just get really fancy and organize all your ties and belts with a rotating rack that fits right onto your closet rod — this one might not be so great for tanks tho.

    21. If you're trying to figure out where to put all your little things (wallets, sunglasses, clutches) try a wallet tray that easily snaps onto a wire shelf so you can store all those tiny treasures.

    22. Or if your closet isn't built with wire shelving you can use a household divider to store your wallets and clutches — it can also hold your pot and pan lids.
