One of my favorite organizational zones has been my husband’s tie rack. Over the years, we have tried everything -hangers, special tie hangers, tie racks that we mounted on the wall, etc.
Most of our issues with these different methods was that they provided inadequate storage and/or they simply didn’t work. We ended up with my husband’s ties slipping off on to the floor due to the fabric material as well as the fact that we were often doubling (and sometimes tripling!) the amount of ties on one hook. Fifteen hooks just wasn’t cutting it for my pastor-hubby.
We needed something flat against the wall, simple and capable of holding several dozen ties.
A curtain rod was the perfect solution to our problem. It was easy to install and cheap. This one was only ten bucks from Lowes.
Hanging ties is now a snap. And fun. I sometimes even go in there and organize the ties by color. Clearly on those days, I have too much time. Or I’m avoiding another task.
Not that I’m bitter. My scarves are living quite happily in a drawer….with smidgen of room for growth.
How do you organize neckties? Or belts and scarves? This example of storage would even work with shower hooks to hang handbags. A rod can be an excellent method for open, accessible storage. We’ve been using a curtain rod for several years now and still love it.
And if you need a laugh, you can look back at a post introducing this technique from my early blog days.
