If you’ve ever wondered how to store linens, here’s a tip: Fold your linens over a strong clothes hanger and hang them in a spare closet. This keeps them from getting wrinkled, and you can find them easier than if you were digging through a trunk or drawer. This also works well for blankets, sheets, extra pieces of material, and generally any large piece of fabric that you would usually fold.

I also hang my gift bags on hangers arranged by holiday or season. I keep any leftover decorations or wrapping paper that I may use again in a bag that represents that item’s holiday or theme. When I’m ready to hang up Halloween decorations, for example, I simply pull out the bag with a giant pumpkin on it.
