When perusing Pinterest, there’s always pictures of a-list closets that probably cost more than your car, and if you’re an organizational freak like me, it can make you insanely green with envy. Heck, we even have an entire Pinterest board dedicated to CLOSET ENVY.
But you don’t need a ton of money to make your closet look that neat (or pretty). You can get creative with some simple household items and make your closet cute and clean.
Here’s four closet hacks you shouldn’t live without!
#1: Turn a lid rack into a clutch display or use it to organize your flip flop collection (don’t make that face at me, miss fashionista. Some of us are practical. :P).
The good thing is, you don’t need to buy a new one. You can probably find one at your local thrift store for a buck or less. Spray paint it any color you like, if you’re into getting crafty.
#2. DIY Scarf Rack, two ways.
#3. Purse display using shower curtain hooks and curtain rods.
This is one of my favorites and I’ve actually implemented it in my own closet. I also combined this one with #2 and tied all of my scarves to a curtain rod.
#4. Floating shelves for shoes.
This is a really great touch if you’re wanting an extremely finished look, and definitely a lot cheaper than purchasing an expensive closet organization system.
