Monday Motivation: My Favorite Storage Solutions For Your Coat Closet

If you've been following the Monday Motivations in January you'll probably be looking at a nicely organized closet in your home right now.  Am I right?  If not, it's not too late.  Just follow the instructions on the first post and the second post.  If you need some inspiration, check out my closet to see my before and after pictures.

There are a few items that I'd like to purchase for my closets as my budget allows.  I thought I'd share them with you.  If you have some items that work for you, please share them in the comment section. 

1.  My first wish list item is the new skinny hangers, sometimes called Velvet Hangers.  I found some at Ross for 50 cents a piece (they came in a package of 12).  If your closet is crowded, these hangers will give you a little bit of extra room on your rod.  You can also get them on

2.  Another item I like is the square utility totes from thirty-one.  I got to play around with one last Fall and found that they were so much lighter than the heavy wooden ones I'm using now. 

3.  Lastly, I'd like to get a few of these cute hooks to put on the inside of the closet door.  I just can't resist them!

So, how's your foyer and coat closet coming along?  If you're really proud of it, send me some pics and I'll post them.


  1. Harris Tetter has 18 for $7.50! I haven't done the math!

  2. I love the bird hangers...where did you find them?


I'd love to know what you're thinking. Please feel free to leave ideas and comments.
