Oh My Goodness! How Do You Store All Of Your Scarves?

I confess. I have quite a big scarf collection. I have been collecting scarves for years and quite enjoy wearing them as an accessory with different outfits. I have received several as gifts and when I buy a new piece of clothing I also like to pick up a new scarf too! Whenever I go on a trip I also like to pick up a scarf when I travel instead of picking up a souvenir.
There’s a bit of a problem having so many scarves and that is how to store them. I tried different ways including having them shoved in a drawer but they got too wrinkly. I also tried storing them in a laundry basket in the closet but I spent too much time rummaging. Another method I tried was storing them under the bed in an under bed storage plastic bin but I didn’t enjoy getting onto my knees everyday early in the morning looking for just the right one.
Then I had my ‘Aha moment’ and I have been using this storage idea for several years with a lot of success!
I now store my scarf collection in the closet on tiered hangers designed for hanging slacks. I really like this type of hanger because the rods can pull away making it easy to hang the scarf and then can be slipped securely back into its slot on the hanger. The hanging scarves now drape very nicely over the rods!
I also love this storage idea for hanging scarves because I can easily locate the scarf I am looking for. The other reason why I love it is because the scarves don’t get wrinkled at all!
It’s a really simple idea but it’s often the simple ideas that turn out to be the most handy and successful! This is the condensed version of how I store my scarves. I invite you to read the full explanation on my blog Time With Thea!

    Love the idea of using the multi-pants hanger. I will get one to hang my chair covers and sashes, another one for tablecloths.

    Great idea and doesn't take up a lot of space. Really smart.
