S-Hooks & Towel Rail As Purse Hangers
In the closet organization game, hooks and rings that allow you to hang stuff up are your MVPs. Case in point: S-hooks. Use them to hang up purses and free up shelf space. If there's no space on your clothes rail to spare, install a towel rail on the closet wall or door.

If you've got all your scarves stuffed in a drawer, chances are you've probably forgotten some of them even exist! Hang them out in the open with shower curtain rings. We suggest smooth plastic rings to prevent snagging.

Shower Rings & Clothes Hanger for Tights
Instead of digging through drawers for the right pair of tights to match your outfit, use a clothes hanger and smooth plastic shower rings to hang them up in your closet for easy view and access. We suggest hanging them conveniently right next to your skirts.

Pool Noodles As Stand-Up Boot Inserts
Tall boots take up less space when stored upright and not drooping over. Plus, they look so much cuter that way, am I right? Cut pool noodles to size and use them as inserts to make your boots stand at attention and reduce their closet space footprint.

Pan Rack as Flats & Flip Flops Organizer
Storing flats and flip flops sideways are a great way to organize them and conserve precious closet space. Use a pan rack, pot lid rack, or dish rack to keep them all in order and easy to see.

S-Hooks & Baskets for Under Shelf Storage
If you've got loads of air space between your upper shelves and closet rails, this is the perfect hack for you. Create more storage by hanging laundry baskets underneath the shelves using S-hooks (if you've got wire shelves) or large cup hooks/utility hooks for wood/MDF shelves.
