Organize Your Denim With a Hanging Shoe Bag

Elleinad Spir got fed up with the pile of avalanching jeans and thought to buy a hanging shoe bag to hold her jeans. Upon seeing this simple solution, it was one of those “why didn’t they think of that before” moments. The denim fits perfectly in the shoe cubby. It’s easy, clean and very organized. Especially if you have many pairs of jeans, and keeping them all in sight makes for getting the most out of them. Trust me… living in tiny apartment sharing a closet with my husband and with half my clothes are under the bed, it’s easy to forget what a girl has. Especially when it comes to telling the different dark rinse jeans or the black jeans apart.

For those who have no room in our closets… there’s always folding jeans like a professional and  labeling the jeans in the stack. But for those of us who can’t fold, the hanging denim bag will do the trick.

    Love this idea! I see a lot of potential here…now if only I could find time in my schedule to do an overhaul on my closet…

    It’s really amazing how useful those are– I’ve known women who store their corsets in them as well. I wouldn’t have thought to do it for jeans, but really….you could do it for pants too… maybe one for your mate’s pants, one for yours…

    What an amazing idea! Now I just need to make some room on my racks to hang these from 🙂

    This is such a good idea, especially for small space living. I need to do this like right now.

    I love this idea (and I just love her in general, too :)) – I’ve got denim piling up everywhere and most is hung in the closet, but now taking up three quarters of a hangbar leaving me in a conundrum. Woohoo!! Relief is in sight!!

    Thanks for sharing this!

    What a great idea! I am terrible at “loosing” clothes deep within my closet and not finding them until it’s time to make the summer/winter switch..when it’s too late. Thanks for this post!

    I love this idea for jeans – my sister does this for her family’s hats & mittens with the smaller slotted hanging shoe bags, so clever for jeans too.

    Absolutely LOVE this idea, and I completely agree, there are so many things I don’t wear because I simply forget about them, I hate that! the other day I came across a lovely black denim pencil skirt I had completely forgotten about it. Same situation here: small flat, living with the boyfriend 😉

    Um, that is a BRILLIANT idea! I am so doing this.

    This is fantastic. Exactly like my closet but sorted into different levels in my chest of drawers.
