8 Ways to Organize Your Jeans

Tuesday, September 30, 2014


If you have a jean drawer busting at the seams, or a towering mess in your closet that falls on your head whenever you pull a pair out. It’s time to get organized! You know for the fall and winter, you’ll be wearing different jeans than in the summer months, so now is as good a time as any to pack away all those denim shorts.

1. A Rustic Ladder: If you want to make a nice display and have your three or four favorite pairs of jeans on hand at all times, a rustic ladder can make a beautiful decoration in your bedroom.

2. A Row of Pegs: Another decor idea that also works for organization is having a row of pegs to hang your jeans (and bags too!).


3. Rolled in a Rustic Crate: If you’re short on the closet space, rustic crates make beautiful decor both in an out of your closet.


4. Folded and Labeled: Say you have dark indigo jeans in skinny, boot-cut, flare, and boyfriend. Great! But when they’re folded they all look the same. Divide your jeans by style and label the stacks.


5. Pull-Out Trouser Rack:  If you’re going for the real deal when it comes to custom closet organization… don’t forget a pull-out trouser rack module. It’s not a stretch to use them for jeans.


6. Hang them on Hangars: Have room in your closet? Hang them on hangars.


7. Store Them Sideways: Instead of stacking them in the drawers the regular way, stack the jeans sideways so you can see every pair.


8: Hang them with Shower Curtain Hooks: Shower curtain hooks are more then just for the shower! Display them in your closet showroom style and use shower curtain hooks to hang up your jeans.

Organize Your Denim With a Hanging Shoe Bag

Wednesday, January 19, 2011

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.

How to Fold Your Jeans Like a Professional

Wednesday, August 4, 2010

This post is by Alyson Woods from Alyson is Neat. We bonded over out college jobs and retail folding experiences. Here she shares some secrets for organizing and storing your denim

When I was in college, I had my dream job. Well, a dream job for an 18 year old… I worked at The Gap. The only reason I got the job is because I said in my interview, I have wanted to work at The Gap since I was 16. How can you say no to that?

Through my time there I went through countless training seminars on the aspect of denim. I would also spend entire shifts re-organizing our denim collection. I have a lot of experience folding jeans to make them look amazing. Now, I want to share that with you. Just follow these easy steps, and you will have a killer stack of denim that is viewable and pretty!

1. Smooth jeans flat

2. Fold in half

3. Fold the bottom of the jeans to the yoke seam

(the upside triangular seam on the back of your jeans)

4. Fold leg down past the crotch

This will create a little bit of bulk in the fold. Also, if you like, fold in the crotch and tuck under the legs. (If space is a problem, omit this step, but yours jeans will be rather flat).

5. Fold again, and flip over!

You are done!

I demonstrated how this well-executed fold looks when sitting in a cabinet (um yes, I did this in my kitchen). The folds are thick, and so if space isn’t really an issue for you, this fold is perfect. You get a large viewing area of your denim.

However, if space is an issue… I will show you how I store my jeans. I have two small closets in my bedroom and dedicate one entire closet to winter items and a hanging shelf. I set my jeans with the waistbands on the outside, because if I can see the brand, I can identify the pair of jeans.

If you have any further questions, or would like some advice on how to organize your denim, feel free to leave a comment down below or send me an e-mail.
