I love all of these ideas! I always find that handbags are the hardest to organize and store. I especially love the bookcase ideas and the clear acrylic bag holders but unfortunately, they don’t seem to ship here to Paris.
For my medium to small designer bags I like to use clear plastic shoe storage boxes. Still looking for some larger ones for my designer totes. Will have to check out The Container Store. Thanks for this article it made me remember to check out that store today.
You are so welcome! Hope you find some good containers!
