I’m such a visual/creative person which means I need to “”see”” everything in my house to know it exists. My closet is no exception. In order for me to actually wear my scarves, hats, purses, and jewelry, I must be able to see them and easily access them fast.

In this video, I show you how I organized all of closet accessories (scarves, hats, purses, and jewelry) in my new closet. Plus, I show you a super cool trick I did with the closet rod to maximize storage space!!

Video Details

Hi everyone. So in this video, I’m going to share with you guys how to organize all of your jewelry and your accessories inside your closet. So your accessories means like your purses, your scarves, sunglasses, and any hats that you might have.

So this is where I have all of my jewelry and accessories inside my closet.

How to Organize Jewelry & Accessories

I’m just going to quickly go up and down and show you guys what it looks like. I’m not going to give you guys a full closet tour in this video, just my jewelry and accessories but I’ll do a closet organization video in the future. But this shelving, this was here when we moved in. It’s made by IKEA so I’ve been kind of just adding parts and pieces to kind of make it fit the clothes that I have or the accessories and jewelry I have.

Organizing Jewelry & Accessories

So let me just show you guys what I’ve done. So what I did on the side of the closet is add this pullout hooks for all of my necklaces. Now, if you don’t have the same Ikea shelving inside your closet then you probably can’t get the same hooks. But what you can do is you can just still mount hooks on the side of your closet. They’re out of the way. They keep the necklaces from tangling and it’s a good use of your vertical space.

I did the same thing on this side. I added the same hooks for all of my necklaces. So now, it’s just really easy to grab the necklace I’m looking for and then put it back when I’m done wearing it.

So for all my earrings, my rings, my bracelets, my belts, jewelry cases, sunglasses, basically any small accessory that you don’t want to lose in your closet, I gathered all those and I got these jewelry tray organizers. I’m not sure if they were made for jewelry but they’re tray organizers from Michaels, the craft store. They were like $2 to $3 each on clearance so it’s a great price. I got them because I like them. They were bright colors and they’re nice and open so you can immediately just like come to the shelf and just scan for what you’re looking for and immediately see and grab what you need. So it’s very visible. They’re bright, they’re fun, and it just holds all the small things in your closet and they just fit nicely on this shelf.

Simple Scarf Organization

And so for all my scarves, I just got a rod that fit with the shelving and I tied the scarves around the rod and then hang them. So now, they’re just – like I immediately see them when I walk inside the closet and they’re really easy to grab and they’re easy to hang back once I’m done wearing it.

And so, what else I did here in this space which you can’t really see here is I put another rod in the back of the closet so you can kind of see with this shelving, they have – there are pegs in the front, there are pegs in the middle, and then there are pegs all the way in the back. I’m not sure if you can see that or not. But since there are pegs in the back, I decided to do a rod in front of a rod which you can probably do this with other shelving if they have the same set up with the pegs and stuff.

But I put a rod behind a rod for like more storage space back there. And then – see, this is only – you can only do this with an IKEA thing but this one, this was like a specialty rod. I had a rod coming out so I figure, “Oh, this is perfect to hang like all of my hats here.” So that rod back there has this rod here and this rod here hangs all of my hats. So they’re kind of in the back behind the scarves. So it just makes amazing space all the way back there.

And then the same thing over here, I did – this one had another rod coming out and I did purses back here so it’s just really easy access to purses like smaller purses. And then back here, I have a clutch. I have another clutch which I don’t why it’s not there right now but it just stays here also. So it’s kind of like a mini shelf for smaller things back there.

So like I said, you can’t really do this with your everyday shelving but if you have IKEA shelving, it’s going to totally work. So a rod behind a rod to create extra storage space.

Storing Purses & Bags in the Closet

At the very top of my closet, I have a big duffel bag where I keep larger purses that I don’t use every day but I just use on like certain occasions. Like they’re bigger bags and not like the clutch or the smaller bags I just showed you guys in the hooks. They’re just bigger bags that I just kind of nest inside of each other. So I don’t use this every day. They’re probably used like seasonally. Like this is use in the summer and then there is another black bag. There’s a pink bag. So yeah, so purses that I do use on occasion but I don’t need easy access to them.

So that’s how I’m organizing everything inside my closet like my jewelry and my accessories. I hope these tips were helpful. If you have a different way of organizing jewelry and accessories and you want to share it with us, leave a comment below. Let us know. Or create a video response and show us exactly what you do inside of your closet.

So that is everything I have for you guys. I will see you soon. Bye.
