The average woman owns seven handbags.
Whilst this is great for switching up your fashion, it makes storing all of your purses a pain.
Fortunately, there are plenty of clever methods for organising bags, wallets, clutches and purses in your home. Try out any one of the following four ideas to keep track of all of your handbags so you can grab the perfect one and go.
1. Line them up
If you have a free shelf in your wardrobe or closet, then you have the perfect spot for organising bags. Simply line up your purses side-by-side on this built-in ledge. You’ll be able to see them all from the ground and grab the one you want to wear.
You can make this space even more functional by adding clear acrylic dividers. With one bag per box, you can easily slide your chosen accessory out of your closet when you want to wear it.
And, even if there’s no space in your wardrobe right now, you can make room by clearing out clothes and bags you no longer wear.
2. Add a door hook
The back of your closet door is a valuable storage space that might be going unused.
As far as handbag storage ideas go, you just need to add a few hooks to the back of the door. You can drill them into place or get over-the-door hooks, too.
Either way, once they’re in place, you have the perfect spot to hang and organise all of your purses.
3. Hang them on the rack
You should clear out your wardrobe regularly to keep things organised — and to make room for new shopping, too.
Clearing up a bit of space on the rod in your wardrobe gives you the perfect spot to hang your handbags. You can purchase special hooks that have a hanger head at the top. So, you can pop them onto the rack and hang your bags next to your clothes on traditional hangers.
4. Branch out from the bedroom
You don’t just have to store your handbags in your bedroom. In fact, some of the best purse storage ideas are for spaces beyond the wardrobe.
For one thing, you can move them into other closets with an open shelf or hanger space. Or, you could make them a focal point in their own right — add shelves to your bedroom wall to organise and display bags at the same time.
And for the purse-obsessed, you could do well with a storage unit dedicated to bag storage. A cubical shelving unit with storage baskets slid into the open squares could hold a considerable number of bags.

It’s not just about fashion — organising bags can be a boon to your mental health, too. A de-cluttered space will make you feel less stressed, and that’s how we want to feel at home. Fashion should be fun, anyway — no need to feel overwhelmed by your bag supply.
