Because belts are shaped to oddly, they can be difficult to organize and store. Whether your belts and thick or thin, long or short, you can use a variety of methods to keep them accessible but out of the way in your closet or bedroom.
Some people like to store their belts in a dresser drawer. This is not the most convenient place to store belts, but it's not difficult to understand why it's a desirable storage location: the belts stay out of the way and they do not clutter up the room's aesthetic. If you're keeping your belts in a dresser drawer, the least efficient storage method is simply to lay them in it. This is inefficient because the belts take up more space than seems possible. Instead of being able to store several belts in a drawer, you'll find that you can conveniently fit only three or four in a whole drawer.
If you're storing your belts in a drawer, roll them. Insert some dividers or small compartment boxes in the drawer, one for each belt. Begin with the non-buckle end of your belt and begin to coil it loosely. You don't want to coil it too tightly lest you damage the fabric or leather. Once the belts are rolled, they should be able to fit right inside your compartments; because of the compartments' or boxes' walls, the belts won't be able to uncoil.
Lay the belts this way in a single layer. Obviously thicker leather belts will require more space than thin fabric belts, so keep that in mind when you are buying compartments or building dividers.
Closets are typical places to store belts. It's only natural to keep your belts with the rest of your clothes or accessories, after all. Inside your closet, you have a variety of storage and organization options.
If you spend a lot of money on your belts, you're not too keen on rolling them, or the belts have unusually large buckles, you may not want to keep them in boxes. If any of these situations applies to you, you may want to install some belt hangers. What's great about belt hangers is that you can utilize space on the back of your closet door, space that, most of the time, goes unused.
Screw one, two, or three screws or hangers into the back of your door. How many you use depends on how many belts you have. Make sure you space them out just enough to allow the belt buckles to fit. You can now either hang the belts directly onto the screws or install long, arm-like hangers on which you can hang your belts.
This method allows your belts to hang freely but out of the way, and allows you to look at all of your belts at once to make the belt selection process seamless. What's inconvenient about this method is that you have to remove belts on top of the one you want if you have more than one belt hanging from a hook.
Inside your closet, you can also utilize storage boxes, as described in the dresser section. You can purchase small, clear boxes so that you can see what belt is inside if you want to stack the belt boxes. This is convenient because it keeps the belts contained and out of the way.
Or, if you're so inclined, you can use a tie rack to hang your belts. Drape your belts over the rack, as you would a tie, for easy selection and obtaining.
