Closet Organization

 My closet is my happy place, and I’m being absolutely serious about that. If I’m stressed or down, I can always go here and organize it and somehow I feel better afterward. I probably organize it every other day, and finally after moving everything is in its place. I wanted to share my tips on how to get your closet your happy place!

1. Overall, I prefer to organize my closet by color rather than by the type of shirt it is. I think it’s more aesthetically pleasing this way, and I can still find what I need. I do however put all my tank tops together by color, because these will get lost behind tops with sleeves. You can find them on the far right, then I just started with white/creams and worked through color going towards the left. 

2. Utilize small space for display. I didn’t know what would fit at the very top of my closet, so I decided to stuff my purses with paper and display all of them. I knew if I just stored things in boxes up here (such as scarves and hats), they would NEVER get used. I need to see it to remember I have it! P.S Can’t you tell I used to work at COACH? 



3. I would recommend to invest in all the same hangers. I gradually built my collection shopping at places such as Marshalls, TJ Maxx, and Costco. I wanted these slim and fuzzy ones so my shirts didn’t slip and to optimize space. Also, these have rounded edges so your sweaters don’t stretch while hanging! 

 4. Add extra storage as needed. I was lucky to draw for the master bedroom between my roommates, and it came with the built in shelving on the far right (seen in the photo above). I already had this 3 drawer plastic container and it fit perfectly in this space. I use this to store tank tops, clutches and belts, and extra hair stuff (curlers, etc). 



5. I use shower rods to hang my scarves (seen on the far left). This has been the best way I’ve found to keep them from wrinkling, plus I can easily see them! 

5. I use these hanger clips to store my skirts. I prefer them hanging like this instead of folded because it takes up too much space and keeps them from creasing. 

5. Use trays and shoe boxes for storage. I usually always keep shoe boxes..the ugly ones store things under my bed, and the cute ones go in the closet! The blue trays were from COACH when they were getting rid of old displays, but you could do a simple DIY to get a similar look. Find your tray of choice and just add cute scrap booking paper to the bottom 🙂

 I picked up this jewelry storage from Target last year, and I store my nail polish in the top from a shoe box
(I know, enough about shoe boxes..)

I just upgraded my shoe rack (found here) because surprise surprise my old one ran out of space. As you can see this was just enough room, but some of these will be included in my Instagram closet shop soon! If you’re interested, be sure to follow @shopstrawberrychic so you know when it launches! 

 Jewelry display is crucial, because like I said earlier if I don’t see it I don’t wear it. I purchased this bracelet organizer from Michaels Craft Store years ago, but I’m sure it’s still available. I also love this because of the neutral color! I also store my sunglasses here to keep them safe from scratches and so I don’t always just wear the same pair kept in my car. 

If you have any questions about specific items just let me know!
Thanks for reading and Happy Friday 🙂

  • Strutting in this @joulesclothing dress (c/o) with one of my new #bloggerbesties @pardonmuahinsta in our matching flower crowns at #tbscon | As soon as we both introduced ourselves as Amanda we had an instant connection and felt like we had already met before! Connecting with likeminded girls is at the top of my priorities list throughout 2018. I’ve been such a homebody and stuck in my own comfort zone and it’s time to change it up!

I created a girls only private Facebook group to connect this amazing community of women here. Yes, Y O U reading this! I want you to join and hope it can become your go to place to seek advice, share your success, and feel like you’re talking to your best friends. As I slowly start to put my true self out there on social media, I’ve realized that I’m not alone in this world. We all have insecurities, weird habits, and moments to celebrate 💕 I added the new group to the link in my bio for a short period of time, but I want to keep it relatively on the DL to connect with my real squad out there 🍓.

Click the link in my bio to shop this look. My top is only $16 and I’m wearing Valentino dupes🍓Happy Friday friends!  #liketkit http://liketk.it/2wUX5 @liketoknow.it
  • I challenge you to buy something way out of your comfort zone every now and then because you never know what may surprise you! This olive cropped jumpsuit was my surprise this week. Tim was even a fan and I thought he would hate it! He described it as “elegant but bossy” 🤣 Like this photo if you think he should narrate my next try on haul. Also, I have a lot of new faces around here so I just wanted to say a quick hello to my new friends👋🏼💕.

Coming to my YouTube channel this Sunday is an @oldnavy try on haul. I found so many cute basics for fall that are a heck of a lot better deal than the nsale 😜. I normally size down in Old Navy but I wanted the top to fold over the not so cute waistband.  I’m wearing a small for size reference.

My heels are a Valentino dupe from @amazonfashion and look just like the real deal! I linked the exact outfit on the shop page of my blog.
