I have too many shelves and no hanging space in a small room. How do I maximize the space I have and keep work clothes and dresses organized and wrinkle-free?
(After years of lurking, I finally post an ask! Huzzah!)
I just moved into a new place (whoo hoo!) and as I settle in, I am not sure how to store my clothes. I'm lucky to have two closets in my room, but they're full of shelves. There is no space to hang anything, and I am not sure what to do with my work clothes and dresses that I normally hang. My biggest concern is keeping my work clothes and dresses wrinkle-free.
The shelves are a normal width but a bit shallow. There is a good bit of space in between the shelves, so stacking my clothes would make it difficult to pull out the items on the bottom. I was thinking about getting baskets or bins to create cubby-like spaces.
I would also appreciate general advice for keeping folded clothes organized, as my folded clothes tend to devolve into one big mess. (re: a lot of great ideas
but ideas for shelving only?)
At my last apartment, I had two hanging closets and enjoyed it immensely. Unfortunately space is very tight, so I cannot use a separate hanging system. I also cannot renovate the closets.
I've read unclutterer, Apartment Therapy, Martha Stewart, lifehacker, etc., but was hoping to see if I missed anything or if y'all have some brilliant ideas to share. Am I overthinking it and should leave it at that? Thanks!
