Prepare yourself for another post in our Crafty Chaos series....

Oh, the frustration those long, skinny things we wrap around our waist can cause!! Belts are not the easiest accessories to store and organize, because laying them in a drawer or on a shelf can be messy--and it can even misshape them if you're not careful. 

But don't get all bent up over your bent-up belts yet, because we have found a great, easy, affordable solution! First, just grab a hanger that you already have hanging out in your closet...

Then, pick up a cheap pack of C-hooks, and hang them on the hanger...

And put those pretty belts on the cute little C's....

Keep the belts from sliding all over by tying some ribbon in between each hook--because hangers can't keep balanced themselves, you know!! You will want the ribbon to be about 5/8'' wide and 4'' long, and sealed at the end to prevent fraying. There's no need to trim the long ends of the ribbon after you've tied the ribbon to the hanger. They actually help prevent the hooks from sliding over the knots!

And there you have a super simple belt storage solution, so you can keep them organized and tangle-free! Some people use S-hooks, which is totally fine, but C-hooks work just as well and are way cheaper! We found ours in the bath section at Smith's Marketplace for $2.99. 

This is such a quick and easy closet that can make a little more space in your closet, and give you a little more sanity next time you search for the perfect belt to accessorize your outfit!! We hope you love this DIY belt organization tip as much as we do!! :)

By the way, did you happen to see those cute blue nails in that last picture? WHAT? YOU DIDN'T?? Well, scroll up if you need to and take a look!! Go on, scroll up, I will be waiting for you to scroll back down in a few seconds....

Yay, I am so happy you saw those cute nails!! Now, if you LOVE them, then you have to check out our last blog post, devoted to a limited edition nail polish collection from one of our favorite cosmetic companies! 

Well, thanks for reading, and have a great day!! :)
