How To Store Clothes and Accessories in a Small Space
Take it from me, a girl who owns more sweaters than there are days of the year (fine, I might be exaggerating just a little), when I say small-space living is hard when you have a lot of clothes. I remember looking through my closet at my parents’ house and wondering how on Earth I’d manage to fit all of my clothes into the teeny-tiny bedroom of my off-campus apartment.
Spoiler alert: I didn’t. After getting over my wishful thinking, I decided to create a capsule wardrobe to bring to my college apartment, consisting only of staple clothing pieces as well as my favorite shoes, a few tote bags, and some miscellaneous accessories. But even after undergoing that grueling process of elimination, I still had way too many items to fit into my new home — to the point where my closet door would not shut.
So, my wardrobe started to live in other parts of my room instead. Clothes were balled up in piles on the floor, slumped over the back of my desk chair, and shoved into a remote corner of my bed. I couldn’t find a single accessory when I wanted to wear it. My lack of organization kept me from having a relaxing space to come home to after a long day of classes, and it wreaked havoc on my ability to focus when studying. I knew I had to make changes, so I started looking into products that could help me get organized without spending too much money.
Now that I’ve set up all my storage solutions in my room, I feel like I’ve finally cracked the code to storing my clothes and accessories in even the smallest of spaces. Here are the items that helped me get there.
