Hanging Organisers

Hanging organisers with either open cubbies or dedicated designed-for-bags slots are super versatile - if you have space in your wardrobe to hang from the rail, great! If not you can hang over the back of a door (be that your bedroom or closet doors) from hooks, or even from your curtain pole if you're feeling edgy.

Cubbies, Bins and Storage Boxes

Cubbies, bins and boxes are excellent for storing various sizes of handbags if you have the space to install them. If you don't have space on your wardrobe or closet shelving, simply storing handbags in bins that you tuck in a cupboard or under your bed can be a good way to keep them protected and organized.

Dividers Or Magazine Holders

Re-purpose holders designed for other items (magazines, baking trays, files!) can just as well work for handbags as well. For example, slim or clutch bags can slip nicely into a file folder and it doesn't take up too much space.
