Do you know how to organize scarves? One of my goals is to reduce the clutter in my home and get more organized. The more things that I have, the more time that it takes me to clean them. A bureau that’s clear takes less time to dust than one that’s covered in stuff. If your bureau drawers are stuffed full, your clothes become wrinkled, and it takes you longer to find the item you’re looking for.
How to Organize Scarves
One of the first projects that I’m tackling is to clean out a few drawers in my bureau. I cannot fit all of my clothes and accessories into my bureau anymore, and that means endless piles of clothes on the chair and the blanket box. That means I cannot sit in the chair or open the blanket box to put the blankets away. It’s a never ending cycle of clutter that I need to deal with.
The first drawer I opened had a bunch of scarves shoved into the corner. I never think to add a scarf to my outfit because they are buried in the bureau. When I do think of it, I cannot find the scarf I want to wear. I’ve seen some organizing products made specifically for scarves, but I wanted something that I could do relatively inexpensively. I also wanted something that I could keep in my closet but get to easily. We don’t usually hang things on the wall because many of our walls are the old lathe and plaster style.
The last time I was clothes shopping, I remember seeing a scarf display that was made of circles on a rod. The scarves were easy to see and were draped so that they did not fall on the ground. Since I didn’t want to add a rod, I decided to use a clothes hanger instead. The circles had me stumped for a minute. I needed to be able to attach them to the clothes hanger easily and have them move freely. I realized that shower curtain rings would work just fine. If you don’t have shower curtain rings, you could attach them with clothespins, but that might leave a crease in your scarf.
When you hang your scarf, just use a simple hitch knot to attach loosely each scarf to its own ring. You could use this same type of organization project to organize belts or even your husband’s ties. What are you organizing this week?
