Before I heard about the Marie Kondo filing folding method, I would have never thought to store clothing upright in baskets.

This organizing idea really comes in handy, especially when you have a lot of shelf space in your closet. It’s especially awesome to fold scarves and tanks this way into baskets.

One thing worth mentioning is make sure the baskets and storage boxes have a smooth surface inside (if not you may want to line them with something).

You don’t want anything snagging your clothing.

4. Grab a cooling rack and a dry erase board and you have the sweetest DIY jewelry organizer ever!
