How do you store your scarves????

swmboJuly 14, 2007

Wondering how others store their scarves.

I am talking about the large ones, not the smallish, thinner summery ones!

I have a wooden hanger that has holes in it that I thread my lighter scarves thru just like this one below ~ see link :)

However my larger thicker, winter scarves that need to preferably be folded (to minimize creasing) seem to end up messy in drawers.

Interested to hear how you store them.

I use those stacking decorative hat boxes. Scarves go in the largest ones, hats in the middle, gloves and mittens on the top.

I live in Iowa -- those are necessities -- and lots of them!!

I actually use those scarves for table runners, and because I don't want to iron them every time before I use them, I put them on open pants hangars which are hung in my front hall coat closet.

I have one of those plastic shoe holders hanging on my coat closet door & keep those woolen scarves in the pockets. The really big ones are in a plastic zipper bag like mattress pads come in & are on the shelf in the coat closet.

A hanger thing in the closet. The top is a conventional hook that goes over the closet pole, then there is a straight down rod with "arms" sticking out to each side every four inches or so. If I'm feeling precise I can fold the scarf neatly over an arm, or just sling it over an arm if not. Only takes up an inch of the closet and holds a lot of scarves.

Some great suggestions above ~ many thanks :)

clink ~ I love the idea of the hat boxes! Sounds very organized! Living in Iowa you would certainly need them handy :) I am 'down under' and it gets cold (admittedly not for a great length of time!), enough to need coats, scarves & gloves.

clair ~ I too had thought of using them as a table runner!!! They are so pretty with gorgeous colors that it would be nice to display them! I have those open pants hangers in dh & ds wardrobes!! May have to 'borrow' a couple ;-)

marti8a ~ I like your idea about the over the door shoe organizer! We dont have coat closets 'down under', yet could easily hang them over a bedroom door!
Have only recently discovered these wonderful organizers!!
I have one hanging on my dd door holding her hair things, socks, underwear, perfume etc, all easy to see and reach for in the morning when time is precious!

Thanks again for some terrific suggestions :)

Would love to hear more :)

foggyj, I got it at K-Mart, if I remember correctly I paid around $10.

Hope this helps :)
