Every girl is tasked with keeping her wardrobe at bay. And with bags, being organized and making sure everything is in tip-top shape require more than your ordinary dust bag. Here are a few essential tips for properly storing your arm candy.
#1 Know which bags goes in racks
While placing your bags on a rack may not have the same effect as placing them all in a row, the space-saving quality is definitely something that should be considered. Take note of the bag styles you can easily hang:
Canvas and woven beach bags
Large shopping totes
Nylon and fabric bags
Dust bags help keep bags clean, but don’t forget to wash them, too. Aside from protecting your handbags from dust and dirt, they also prevent your bags from scratching and chafing, especially when you store your purses closely together.
#2 Store your purses inside cubbyholes
Cubbyholes for closet systems let you neatly display your bags as they retain their shape, as well as giving you easy access so you can use all your bags periodically.
#3 Don’t neglect your bag handles
Bag handles can sometimes be ignored when storing your bags. A little effort goes the extra mile.
For chain link bags, tuck the chain strap inside your purse, ensuring that it’s safely stored inside.
For top-handle bags, keep the handles standing by putting a roll of crumpled paper through the straps. This way, you won’t have to worry about folded or creased handles.
For bags with detachable straps, take the straps out, roll them properly, and keep them inside the bag. Aside from maintaining the shape of the straps, you won’t worry about misplacing them.
#4 Stuff them to stay in shape
For fashion and lifestyle blogger Keri Zamora, maintaining a bag’s shape is crucial to keeping it in good condition. “I stuff my bags with clear bubble wrap or Japanese paper to keep them from losing shape or looking old,” she shares.
