12 Awesome Closet Storage Hacks
It may not be your dream closet, but that doesn't mean you don't have storage options. Here are 12 creative closet storage hacks that will help you store more items and stay organized.
Don’t think everything must be at the same level. Add some shelves and drawers among the hanging clothes. This will help break up the space and allow you to fold items such as jeans and sweaters so they don’t take up space on hangers.
Shower Ring Hooks
Here’s a great way to hang all those tank tops and scarves in your closet. Clip plastic shower rings on a hanger and put scarves through the rings or unclip, put the ring through tank top armholes and reclip. Place the hanger at the end of the closet rod with all your shirts.

Add-On Clothes Rod
Don’t let that space underneath the hanging clothing go to waste—add a second clothes rod. Use a chain and some S-hooks to hang the second rod, which you can then adjust to the right height.
Twin Closet Shelves
Build closet shelves that double your storage space with these plans for twin shelves. Take your closet real estate to its full potential and store twice as much.
Here’s a trick that will help you keep track of items you wear and those you don’t. Start with all your clothes hangers so the hooks are pointing the same way. Once you wear something, when you hang it back up put the hook in the opposite direction. If you haven’t worn something in six months, toss or donate it. A storage hack that costs you nothing!
