Not quite sure how to solve your organizing dilemma but it is driving you nuts? Hang a hook or two to get started. Hooks are a great way to get things off of the floor. They can be used as a permanent solution, or as a temporary one until you have a chance to figure out what you want in that space.
Great for things like:
▪purses ▪hats ▪belts
▪clothes ▪dry cleaning ▪ties
▪kids backpacks ▪sports equipment ▪jewelry
