I was looking for a quick and easy way to store my purses so I could free up some shelf space in my closet, and looking at a length of chain I had lying around, inspiration struck to create a simple hanging purse organizer.
It requires no tools to make: all you need is a length of chain (you can get this at any hardware store for ~$0.50 to $1 per ft), and some s-hooks (I got mine at IKEA – 10 for $1 but you can also find these at hardware stores).
Step 1: Hanging Options
To hang the chain, I used a carabiner (~$2.00 from any hardware store) which works great to hang on a hook or you can simply loop the chain around the closet rod and clip the chain in place with the carabiner.
Step 2: Arrange S-hooks to Hang Purses
Then it’s just a matter of spacing out the s-hooks to hang the purses in a way that makes them easy to see. You could also use the same system to hang hats, scarves, etc.
