Small wardrobe organisation - the wish list!

small wardrobe organisation


When I moved out of my parents almost a year ago, one thing that I really struggling with was the downsizing of my wardrobe! I went from a double, 4 door wardrobe, with shelves and drawers and poles, to a single, two door, one shelf, one pole rabbit hutch. Those of you who might have recently moved out for university will know exactly what I’m talking about! 

I’ve survived just, so far, but with another year in the flat ahead, I think it’s about time I did something about my wardrobe space as it’s really starting to grate on me and getting things in and out of it is becoming a bit of a squeeze.




All my shoes are currently dumped into a big ol' crisp box at the bottom of my wardrobe - it was only supposed to be temporary, but I've yet to sort them out! I love these clear shoeboxes, not only would I be able to actually find the shoes I'm looking for, but they don't run the risk of getting scuffed or squished (when ballet flats get that squished there is no saving them!). I actually have a hanging jewellery organiser for my costume pieces and love it, but what I want to do is hand it on the back of the wardrobe door, all the better to display my pretties! The cotton storage boxes and cedar cubes go hand in hand, I figure the boxes will be great for storing seasonal pieces and the cedar cubes will stop them smelling all musty until their time comes around again! The roll out bin is designed to be used in a kitchen/pantry but I think this would be a great way to utilise the bottom space in the wardrobe and c' mon, it rolls! I have space-saving hangers and they are a life saver but I need more and the hanger hook holders will be a great way to get 2 for 1 on pole space! 

What tips and tricks to you have for organising a small wardrobe space? 

Until next time,

  1. I binned loads of stuff when I moved house. It's so hard because I have so many things I love but hardly wear but probably should get rid of. Doom.

    1. I was so good when I moved, I purged my crap before the Kon Marie method made it 'cool' but over the last year, even in such a small space, the crap has started to accumulate once again! I'm feeling a purge coming on - then I can make room for fancy bins and boxes to hide future crap in!

  2. I'm not very good at organizing. Your tips sound very good. I have my shoes on display in a bookcase, I love it even if I have to wipe the dust quite often. I like the transparent boxes, if the dust becomes to annoying, I'm going to buy some boxes :))

    1. I loved your shoe display! Such a great idea, it reminded me of Sex and the City! I love the idea of having them in boxes, both for protection and easy storage - I don't think my Mr would let me line the living room bookcase with my shoes!
