Tip #1: provide shelf support

When storing your folded sweaters on a shelf, you need to bring in some structural integrity. In other words, shelf dividers to keep your favorite knits contained, neatly stacked, and free from messy pileups.


Tip #2: take the floor

Running low on shelf or drawer space for items too delicate to hang? Place clear stackable drawers on the floor as a DIY dresser.

tip #4: BIN IT TO WIN IT

Sick of your knit hats getting lost in your closet? Store them directly under jackets in linen-lined baskets to protect delicate materials. (Looking at you, cashmere beanies.)
