Organizing Sunglasses

Organizing Sunglasses

I shared details about my closet here and how I display my jewelry, but there were still a few accessories that needed attention…my sunglasses.  Organizing sunglasses may sound a little silly but since many of my sunglasses don’t even come with a case.  Long gone are the days that I would spend beaucoup bucks on sunglasses!  After having kids I find that getting them in and out of the car, in and out of the supermarket cart can often result in my sunglasses taking a dive!  This past Christmas my husband gave me a beautiful pair of Ray Bans (with a case, of course) and I love them and take care of them as best I can, but I often grab for a cheaper pair when I head out.  And the cheaper pairs were…everywhere!  They didn’t have a spot and if I bought cases for them, I knew I wouldn’t even remember what they looked like – meaning I wouldn’t wear them.

When I finished my closet, I wanted to keep it simple and functional so I hesitated to use that free little wall space beside the mirror – but function won over simplicity as if often the case with me.

I moved the watch and bracelet display so that I could work more comfortably.

I had this idea a while back to place a pair of my sunglasses on a hook that I had in the bathroom to see if they would hold in place and they did!  So I purchased these Command hooks which were small and clear and perfect for that narrow space.  I purchased them on Amazon but Walmart and Target also carry them.

I didn’t really measure because I’m bad like that…bad as in good.

Anyway, their placement wasn’t perfect but the sunglasses would cover them anyway.  Maybe I’m not that “bad” after all.

I chose to hang my sunglasses facing forward.

But you can also hang them this way.  Just choose the way that they feel more secure.

What do you think?

Yes, they made the area a little busier but it solved an annoying problem in 2 minutes flat.  Also, since the command hooks are removable, I am not committed to this solution forever.  Maybe I am a little bad.  Just a tiny bit.

Do you have a similar organizing issue with sunglasses or do you limit yourself to one or two pair?
