Organizing your closet has never been so easy! Head to your dollar store for some supplies and you will have it tidy in no time.

Best mesh laundry bag!

Organize your home with these durable mesh bags that Amazon reviewers swear by!

Run to your local dollar store and grab a pack of mesh laundry bags, plastic shower curtain rings, a metal cooling rack, a basket or two that are flexible, and metal book rings.  

For my first hack, you will need two screws and your metal rack.  

Go into your closet and get your rack in a straight line. I am using this bolt on the wall as a reference, but a ruler would work as well. If you don't have any reference points, mark the corners and center of the rack. 

Screw your first screw in. I suggest using power tools. Make sure the screws are fully secure.  

Put your rack onto the screws.  

Fill your rack with sunglasses or any object you would like to go and hang now. It is extremely easy to have clothing in front and sunglasses behind without taking up more space.  

For my next organizer, you are going to need mesh bags, metal rings, and also plastic shower rings.  

Open up your mesh bags. Some will be easy to open, but some you will need to work with to remove a staple.  

Make sure the zipper is at the top and push a plastic shower ring through a hole towards the top.  

Space out three rings at the top and make sure to close them.  

Now for the bottom of the bag, you will need three metal rings. Open one up and loop it through a hole in the bottom of this bag.  

Grab another bag and loop it through the top. Make sure the zipper is facing out.  

Space the rings like you did at the top and attach one more bag at the bottom.  

Clip the plastic rings to a bar in your closet. 

After they are clipped, go and fill your bags. You can really put anything into these bags. Extra shirts fit well, stuffed animals, socks really anything works in these bags and this hanger massively helps to free up space. 

For my final closet hack, you will need four plastic shower rings.  

Take one ring and loop it into one other. 

Clip a ring to the handle of your basket.  

Do this for both sides. 

Now bring this basket over to your closet and clip the plastic rings onto a bar in your closet. 

My husband has a lot of hats and this is a perfect storage basket for all of them. You can also fill this with anything small. I hope you enjoyed these closet tips to help you stay organized.
