As you already know if you read my blog, I am an avid organizer. I like everything to have a place and everything to be in its place. I am always looking for ideas I’ve not thought of. Bedroom organization is helpful to save time, have more productive mornings and is important if you have limited space.

While I have a nice sized apartment, I only have 2 standard closets withing my apartment. No walk-in! I must utilize every inch of storage. It also needs to be quickly accessible. I can’t be wasting time trying to get to anything.

I’ve compiled the best of the best in bedroom organization to save you time from looking and have it all in one convenient location. Bookmark or, better yet, save to your Pinterest board to refer to when you want to organize. Be sure to follow me on Pinterest and follow my organization board for great ideas! Let me know what you tried and liked! Better yet, send me a photo of what you implemented!

Storage Cubes

These originated at Ikea but can be found everywhere from Amazon to Target now! They can be used in any room. Use one as a nightstand with baskets for storage, a bedside lamp, and a bowl or small plate to throw the days jewelry in. They also make great bars, coffee bars, etc. Or even in the closet for clothes organization!

Store Under The Bed

Steal the secret all college students use! Raise your bed using bed risers. Once you do, order some under bed storage containers that fit the new extra space you have.

Organize Shoes

If you have a lot of shoes and not much closet space, use tension rods in small space to create a shoe storage area.

or use crown molding to create a shoe rack!

Or install a tension rod to hang from

Bedside Organization

The bed is an often underutilized area. Use a bedside caddy to store your phone, iPad, book, and remotes. It’s perfect for keeping all of your favorite items within reach and not be cluttering up a nightstand! Find one that suits your needs.



Add baskets to the top shelf of your closet to utilize the space, keep things contained and organized and uncluttered looking. Adding labels helps grab the right basket.


Use of plastic, stackable drawers and sweater/ shoe organizers gave more space and organization.

Use A Cart

This cart is great for super small spaces. The cart can be used as a nightstand, in the bathroom, in the kitchen or just about anywhere space is limited.

Under-Bed Storage

Under-bed storage is typically utilized with under-bed containers with this, they’ve created additional storage from storage cube systems. This spin is decorative and contains it in an easy to retrieve system. This is also great for dorm or sorority rooms!
Or use the storage cube systems to create a whole bed and headboard setup:


Use a trunk as a coffee table or at the base of a bed with storage. Store anything from seasonal blankets to throws.


Armoires are an asset for a bedroom or a living room. They are not only great to hide the obtrusive big black box, but provide additional storage

Drawer Organizers

Keep the clothes in your dresser organized by using dresser drawer dividers to keep everything separated.

Tank Top Storage

Use shower curtain rings to hang up your tank tops and free up space in your dresser drawers.

Bra Storage

Hang your bras with a shower curtain ring onto a hanger.

Jewelry Organizer

There are many ways to store jewelry and it doesn’t have to be out in the open but I love the glitz and glam of this idea!

or use a thread rack to organize jewelry (photo source)!

Belt Rack

Use a wooden hanger with cup hooks screwed in to hold belts.

Scarf Organizer

Use a curtain rod inside a closet door to hold scarves.

Boot Hangers

Boot hangers keep boots organized but also help keep their shape.

Wicker Basket

Wicker baskets can hold just about anything you need to store. I keep one in the master and in the living room to hold throw pillows and throws. Find similar here.

Headboard With Hidden Storage

Make your own headboard with a storage slot.

Bench Filing Cabinet

If your office is in your bedroom like mine is, this bench may be great at the end of your bed. It’s also a filing cabinet!

Organize The Closet

Maximize the space of your closet with a Closet Maid organizer. The closet pictured is what I actually have in my 1 bedroom apartment. That and a coat closet. So I really had to find ways to maximize the space that I do have. I hired a handyman to put my organizer in and it doubled the usable space.

Fold and Roll Bath Towels 

Out Of Season Storage

Vacuum bags are great for saving space but shrinking bulky items. Use for out of season storage or bulky comforters.

Small or Little Closet Space

If you have little closet space, use a nice shelf system to display nice shoes and handbags.

I love your jewelry organization suggestions. They are great. Will try those. One more if possible to have top shelf adjustable you can install extra shelving for those lower heighten items and it gains you room for another shelf for less frequently used items.
