Unfortunately summer days are winding down, but don't be too sad yet. I have an interesting DIY idea that I found while browsing Pinterest...including shower curtain rings. First it might seem strange but once you see what we do with the rings, you will want to join in on the organizing fun!
You know that little bar under the main clothing bar in most closets? I never found a use for it until now. To start with, go to Wal-Mart and purchase a 12 pack of cheap shower curtain rings, like below (only 98 cents). Next, open one up slide the loops of your shorts around the ring, hang up, AND THAT'S IT.
Simple enough, huh?
Check out my pictures below to get a better idea!
Grab this pack of rings from Wal-Mart for only 98 cents.
Which bar you ask? The smaller one under the main bar.

Tip: Fold the shorts with the zipper in the back, grab the two side loops, and place around the shower curtain ring.
Do you think you will try this idea in your closet? Have you seen it previously on Pinterest? Comment responses below!

    I’ve seen bunches of these rings at the thrift store.

    I will have to go get them and try this. My closet space is so tight.
