Martha’s Closet tricks to save space from MarthaStewart.com

To save Space in your closet:

1. Kitchen to Closet

A pair of paper-towel holders mounted on the inside of one closet door organizes scarves or ties and keeps them wrinkle-free. A kitchen-utensil rail proves to be ideal for belts: Each gets its own S hook.

2.Clearing the Air

The bottom of each pull-out shoe shelf is lined with tongue-and-groove cedar planks. The aromatic wood helps neutralize any odors and helps maintain a fresh-smelling closet.

3.Handbag Maintenance

Purses are stuffed with acid-free tissue paper so they maintain their shape when not in use. The bags are kept in flannel sacks to protect them from light and dust.

4.Long Term Care

Being kind to clothes between wearings and seasons is an investment in their longevity. Use appropriate hangers so that jackets and shirts retain their shape, and stack sweaters from heaviest to lightest.

Clothes and accessories stored for a season or longer need protection from light, moisture, and insects. A box filled with acid-free tissue paper, assorted cedar inserts, and dried lavender makes it easy to prepare items as you put them away.

5.Dust Jackets

Twenty-inch cloth napkins (or same-size squares of fabric) become protective covers for coats and vests that don’t need to be stored in garment bags. Each is pierced in the center and reinforced with a grommet to slide over a hanger.
