>>> well, if all of your jeans are crammed in a drawer, or you've got your kids' art supplies piled high in a corner, we're going to help you tidy up for spring and get organized.
>> jenae luchianni is back with some good ideas. good to see you.
>> good to see you guys.
>> my sandal collection is a mess.
>> what's the trick here?
>> flip-flops are the worst offenders in our closets, especially if they're dirty from a day at the beach. so get them up off the floor. these are skirt hangers that i picked up for around $7. easy way to display them. you see what you have and they're off the floor.
>> i love this. this is so awesome. moving on to handbags, something willie can relate to as well.
>> it's a clutch, tamron.
>> a clutch in time. you know, they get squished, you can't see what you have. so this is a simple letter oregon fizer, i found a whole assortment of them so you can get different styles.ganizer, i found a wh ole assortment of them so you can get different styles. it's a really need way to display the bags. so on your dresser, they look pretty.
>> i read that you have to have a little paper to keep your bags formed. you can still put the paper in and put it in this and it's perfect.
>> you're getting a little crazy now, tamron, who has time for this? we're doing quick and easy tips today.
>> fine, fine, fine. okay, our swimwear. bikini land.
>> we were just talking about this in the break. you have two pieces. sometimes you're digging for the other piece. they get ruined in your drawer. so this is a really clever way. found this nice decorative bin for under $10 at marshall's and i just took big zip lock bags and you put the pieces together. you can even take a sharpie and label it, like who it belongs to, what style it is.
>> i feel like willie is the boyfriend or husband you've taken shopping with you, and he's like hmm, okay.
>> this is what's happening right now. i'm trying to be interested. is it working?
>> yes, you're doing very well.
>> tank tops .
>> these are the things that always get wrinkled and shoved in drawers. i'm finding millions of uses for those shower hooks that you can get at the dollar store . these are blastic shower hooks. and i just displayed them. they're not getting wrinkled. they're hanging in your closet saving space.
>> again, willie , you end up dumping the entire drawer out trying to find the one color you're looking for.
>> i know, it's true.
>> i'm sure you have a lot of expensive tank tops .
>> you'd be surprised.
>> these again are shower hooks as well, just a different kind. the kind that have the hook at each end. it's a really need way to display them and store them where they're not taking up a lot of space in your closet and not getting wrinkled.
>> so you would have your bar and --
>> just hook them right on the bar?
>> okay, cool. this one i can relate to for sure. with little kids.
>> so we both have small children and it's really challenging to find like a neat way to store it. and bins just look messy. so this is an art supply station that i made out of a dish drying rack that i got for like ten bucks at target. i love repurposing things you have around the house and everybody pretty much has one of these. so just another clever way to do it.
>> that is smart.
>> and then they have a little art station.
>> because it can turn into chaos. books and markers and blue.
>> children and chaos go hand in hand .
>> this is nifty.
>> now, what did you do over here?
>> okay, so what i did was i took an old bean bag chair . everybody has one of these, right? and i used it to store stuffed animals . because stuffed animals are like these notorious dust collectors. super hard to store. so this is kind of a neat way to keep them out of sight, but your kids can still sit on it. it's still functional. you can take the stuffing out oismt.
>> take the stuffing out.
>> board games .
>> board games are another thing that look messy when they're piled up. you want to reach for one on a rainy day . this is a simple closet organizer i found for under $20 at t.j. max.
