Getting Orgaised - Belts

I cannot believe my last post was nearly a month ago! Everything's been so hectic this past month, I had no idea how much time had passed! The reason I've been gone so long is that I have a new job! It's been a big shock to the system going from having pretty much nothing to do all day, to working 45+ hours a week! I'm still trying to get all this time management stuff figured out, but in the mean time there will be the odd post popping up now and again.
-I definitely have a new found respect for bloggers with full time jobs, especially those who post daily - seriously, HOW DO YOU GUYS DO IT?!

Getting Organised
I decided to have a series of posts on my blog dedicated to getting organised. I am a bit of a hoarder, and hold onto a lot of useless rubbish, have too many clothes that I never wear, and have make up I never use. Every now and again I pretty much turf everything out of my room, get rid of things I don't need, and re-organise everything I'm keeping. Seeing as I'm now going through one of those phases, I figured I'd show you how I'm organising things, and maybe it will help give you some ideas on storage and how to save space.


One of my biggest obsessions are belts. Particularly waist belts (which I'm so happy to see are back in a big way for A/W), and although I probably have way more than I need, I still want more! Previously I had my belts hanging on my door on the same kind of hanger I use to organise my scarf's (see post here), but I found it warped some of the belts, and was sometimes a bit of an effort to put belts back onto, so they ended up strewn across my room. So here's how I've re-organised them:

On the left are waist belts that would get ruined if I rolled them up, so I've stored them length-ways to keep their shape. In the centre I've used 2 small Ferrero Rocher boxes to store my slim non-waist belts, which I rolled up and stored side-by-side. Finally on the right are my elasticated waist belts that can be rolled up easily, and stored more compactly.

It's so much easier to see what I have, and so much easier for my to put the belts away at the end of the day.
Seeing as I'm a bit of a belt freak, I'll be storing the box under my bed for easy access!

I'd love to know how you store your belts?



  1. Hi, beautiful blog! I store my belt like the way you do, coil them up and place them in containers :) btw you have a very teeny waist! Perhaps you'd like to follow eachother? <3 Let me know, sweetie.

    Glam Mania...!!

  2. I too have an obsession with belts haha. I have a special hanger that has these snap open ring things that I can hang them off. It's so hard to explain lol. I'm thinking of posting a closet storage video and blog post though :-) I love your belts, you have quite the collection!

  3. I found your website the other day and after reading a handful of posts, thought I would say thank you for all the great content. Keep it coming! I will try to stop by here more often.

  4. Ooh that sounds interesting, I'd love to see a video/post on it! I love seeing how others keep organised.
    Aw thank you, I think i'll need a bigger box soon as I'm sure I'll be adding to the collection come pay day! Haha xx
