I’m really enjoying your organising ideas. I recently organised my clothing cupboard.
Do you have any tips for how I can store my handbags? I have very little space in my cupboard. I have been squashing my handbags on the one shelf and all my bags lose their shape.

In our previous house, the bedroom cupboards had a shelf above the hanging clothes and I’d (1) line up my handbags neatly in a row, according to colour.
So that’s first prize, if you do have the space. Especially since most handbag freaks are visual and like to see what they have to match with their outfits 🙂
In this house I’m also not as fortunate with space.
Here are a number of alternative solutions:
- a hanging shelf organiser (get from Mr P Home, Sheet Street, etc.)
- roll cloth bags and store upright in a basket
- knock nails or use adhesive hooks on an empty wall. I love red handbags so at one point, I kept three of them in a row
- store them in a trunk or ottoman at the foot of your bed
Please tell me how you store your handbags. I’m always looking for new ideas.

Seriously though, I love my sleep, always have, and have always slept really soundly and so battled to get up in the mornings.
I think you need to know your energy cycles and plan your life accordingly.
I don’t think I ever will be a morning person so I always get as much ready in the evening as possible – I choose clothes, pack lunch, pack handbag, etc. so I have to do as little as possible when I’m not at my best.
They tell me if you go to bed earlier, you wake up earlier. I don’t know about that because if I go to bed earlier, I wake up at exactly the same time, just more rested 🙂
