Keeping bags in their own dust bags and boxes might be the safest and most protective way to store your bags, but it’s also the most leceh way. I used to keep my bags in dust bags and some in their boxes as well. It’s impractical, really. Empty bag, put bag inside dust bag, then put inside box, then place box in wardrobe. And then when I want to use it again, I have to take it out from the wardrobe, the box and the dust bag. So many steps just for a bag that I couldn’t be bothered anymore. Sometimes I even forget what bag I have because they were all hidden inside their dust bags and boxes that I keep on wearing the same one whenever I go out (not that I have many bags).
I wish I have a special display cabinet for my bags (and shoes) so that I can see everything and grab them within seconds. Or at least somewhere to hang them. Then I came across a few bag storage ideas on Shelterness.com (so many cool stuff in there! DIYs, decorating, before-after, etc) and I was inspired by this. There is an empty compartment at the bottom part of my wardrobe where I put all my bags (in their dust bags and boxes) and I could easily turn it into a proper bag storage!
So I went to Giant yesterday and bought a few hooks that are big enough to hold bag handles (make sure they are heavy duty hooks because some bags can be heavy) and just stick them horizontally at the bottom of the shelf like this.
It’s so practical, I can easily see and grab my bags!
Could only fit half of my bags, but that’s ok (I’ll figure out how to store the rest of my bags. Or maybe I’ll let go some that I don’t use anymore). It looks so much neater than before! I wish I took a before picture, but you can just imagine it lah – boxes and dust bags all piled up in that small compartment. Macam sardin!
