Do you have loose items roaming around your closet? It’s time to keep them contained in a bin or basket! Adding bins or baskets are great for items that you don’t typically hang well from a regular closet rod—like scarves, belts, socks, or other clothing accessories. You can place your bins on the floor, on a shelf, in a cubby, or whatever space they fit best but are still easily accessible. We recommend buying matching bins or baskets so they can sit side by side with ease. Here are a few of our favorite options.
Fabric Storage Bins—As your wardrobe fluctuates, it’s nice to have collapsible containers that can fold to make room for other items.We love these fabric storage bins because they are easy to buy in bundles and come in so many colors and styles! They are durable and easy to move, but also collapse easily to tuck against the wall, behind other items, or under your bed when not in use.
Wire Baskets—Wire baskets are a great way to organize your clothes but still see what you have. Wire baskets are sturdy, affordable, and easy to stack on shelves or put in cubbies. Plus, they give your clothes room to breathe so those items at the back of your closet don’t smell musty.
Plastic Bins—Plastic organizational bins come in a variety of sizes, colors, and types and are available at both home-goods and grocery stores. With these, there are both solid and transparent options so you can choose to either hide or see your clothes. And because they usually have air-tight lids, they can protect infrequently worn clothes from the (hopefully rare) chance of being damaged by water, mold, or moth balls.
