How-To: Easy Belt Organizer

I confess that I am not good at keeping my closet organized.  I have gradually been able to pinpoint solutions that help me stay on track.  It took me a long time to find a belt organization system that didn't end with a tangled knot of belts, or a time consuming storage process.  I found this project on Martha Stewart's website.  (I used more hooks than she did to save precious closet space in my old apartment.)  It takes a little time upfront, but it's very inexpensive, and it's been working for me for the past several months.  All you need is a wooden hanger, a drill, and some cup hooks.  Drill pilot holes in the bottom rail of a wooden hanger and insert a cup hook in each hole.  That's it!  Your belts will be easily accessible and tangle free.


  1. How many centimeters are the gaps between each hook?

  2. Before you begin working on your tie and belt rack, it's a good idea to treat the wood so that it will be protected against damage in the future.
