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 🙂

Lately on Instagram @strawberrychicxo

  • Found the perfect striped tee to layer under all your Fall vests (on sale for $12 online only). I sized up to a M for the perfect fit. I’ve bought multiple options for this popular button skirt trend and this one is the keeper! It feels way more expensive than it actually is...all the others felt so cheap! Have you picked one up for the season? I’ve been loving skirts this Fall!

  • Celebrating two years together today 💕 
@shelbyraephotographs captured these photos for our one year anniversary at the same venue we got married. If you’re contemplating doing an anniversary shoot... I highly recommend it! I went all out and did a DIY floral bouquet (that I held the entire drive worried they would tip over, brought our cake topper hoping it wouldn’t melt in the car, and our vows to re-read to each other. You can see the full recap on Strawberry Chic 🍓(search One Year at the top right corner)

Also, where have facials been my whole life?? Sunnie @woodhouseavalon taught me so much about my skin today and shared tips I never even thought of that can be causing acne. I’ll definitely be sharing some of my tips with y’all soon on Strawberry Chic if they work for me. I hope y’all are having the best weekend enjoying this Fall weather 💕.

  • Happy Friday Friends! Welcoming the Fall weather with the windows open in the John household. Why does the Fall air feel more refreshing and clean?? 🤷🏼‍♀️ I went ahead and ordered another color in this slim puffer vest on sale under $20. I live in them at work because I’m always cold but it doesn’t restrict me from working on patients. My ruffle sweatshirt is part of a sale on sale and under $25. It’s made a second appearance on my feed so you know it’s good and it will go fast💕.
