Closet Hack – Using Shower Rings to Organize

I have a confession.

My closet is seriously out of control. And no I’m not going to post pictures. It’s really a bit embarrassing.

But, I have decided it is time to tackle that mess and get it together. Because I have a lot of clothes I don’t wear because I don’t see them. And that sucks. Because I love my clothes. I’m proud of my style, no matter how MsFrizzle it can get at times.

For my first organizational overhaul, I decided to consolidate all my tanks, scarves and belts.

For this project I needed:

  • Shower Curtain Rings (97 cents for a dozen)
  • Hemp String
  • Clothes hangers

First, I put all the shower curtain rings on the clothes hanger. Then I put all my tanks on the rings.

Then I noticed the hanger was going all funky from the unevenly distributed weight, So I grabbed some hemp string and braced the bottom around the actual hook of the hanger.

Wahlaa! (ok so i don’t know how to spell that but seriously whatever i was happy with my hemp string fix)

Then I went on to repeat this hack 3 more times, for a total of 4 hanging organizers, costing me a total of 4 bucks because I already have a thousand hangers and a large amount hemp string from jewelry making.

Also, on a very heavy duty wire hanger, you don’t need reinforcement. These scarves weigh a lot, and the hanger is holding its shape.


Overall, I am very please with how this turned out. It opened up a lot of space, and now I have less clothes to fold. It really is a win, win situation.

Until next time, have a wicked good day!
