I Give a "HOOT" About This Scarf Organizer!

Hey everyone!
Sometimes when I go into Bed Bath & Beyond... I don't realize I need something until I see it! That was the case with this little guy. I went into the store for Keurig coffee and I came out with coffee, a makeup organizer (that's a story for another blog post), and an Owl Scarf Organizer! LOL! Seriously though, when I saw this organizer I was reminded of the back corner of my closet that I haven't visited for months. It holds scarves, belts, and sweater dresses, and (sorry Mom!) it's not exactly organized! 
Here's the sad state of affairs... you can see a bunch of scarves draped over a jewelry organizer, belts draped over other hangers (while the actual belt organizer isn't even being used), and it's just kind of chaotic! In my defense, once I open the closet door, this mess is kind of hidden so it's not really "in my face" all the time (excuses, excuses...) But scarf season is right around the corner, so this needs to get fixed!
This organizer was $9.99, and there was also one shaped like a purse that was quite cute as well. This one has a dark bronze finish and as you can see, you can just poke your scarves through the holes and then you've got a nice slim way to keep them in your closet. 
Here it is all filled up! I used this for my thinner scarves that I might style with an outfit, not my bulky snow-storm type scarves that I use strictly for warmth purposes!  
I have 12 scarves in here, though you could probably squeeze a few more in if you needed to. The ends of the scarves just hang down the back of the organizer and when you need one, you can just pull it out from the front. Also- I got totally excited filling this up. Is anyone else like that? Whenever I get some new organizational tool/container I want to fill it up ASAP!! :) 
 Now things are much more streamlined in that corner of my closet! I also got my belts hung up & organized (you could use this owl thing for belts, too!), and found a few surprises on the floor! Dangling scarves and belts are a cat's playground.  Glad this is all straightened up! :)
What are some nifty organizational tools that you use to make life easier? I'm all ears! Thanks for checking out my post! :) 

Daily Nuggets...
  • That Trashy Taco Soup that I mentioned to in yesterday's blog post? AMAZING. I did make just a few adjustments to it... I didn't add the pinto beans, I used frozen corn, I added a bit of sugar, a bit of cayenne pepper for more heat, and around 1/3 cup of water (it's still a pretty thick stew). Oh and I used ground turkey. I totally recommend serving it with Fritos! They soak up some of the soup without turning to mush. A little light sour cream & cheese is good too. Tyler and I love, love, loved it!
  • Got very frustrated at iMovie earlier today (technical difficulties!!), but fortunately got tomorrow's video finished!  
  • Also tomorrow-- Beauty Broadcast Live at the normal time! 9am CST. 
  • Oh and here's the coffee I picked up at Bed Bath & Beyond! I had my first cup of Pumpkin Spice this morning and it was heaven. This box also comes with Golden French Toast (one of Tyler's favorites) and Gingerbread!

  9. A while ago I read a magazine tip that said to put plastic shower curtain rings on a hanger and then thread your scarves through them, so I've been doing that for a while...but it doesn't work very well. Think I might need to upgrade to something like this soon - I have a lot of scarves! :)

  11. I picked up a similar one last month and I love it. Now my scarves are in one place instead of hanging all over the place.

  13. OMG that little owl is too cute! I need it in my life. My poor scarves are shoved in a drawer and getting very wrinkly.

  14. I've been meaning to pick one of these up. I also saw in a magazine where you yank off the tab from soda cans and slide it over the hook of a clothes hanger so you can hang another hanger through it and make sort of a descending row of clothes hangers with clothes on each one.

  16. I feel like the pumpkin spice coffee tastes like tea/water. I don't even particularly like strong coffee or anything, but there's just not enough flavor to it.
    Are those other flavors like that too?
    Does anyone else find that?
    Such a bummer, no one needs to be spending $4 on pumpkin spice lattes, but I almost have to!! :)

  20. This owl organizer looks really happy about organizing your scraves, LOL!

    Could you PRETTY PLEASE do a review on this SUPER DUPER cute baked eyeshadhow palette from BH Cosmetics? Or perhaps recommend something similar?

  21. I love this little owl. It's not only cute but seems to be super useful. I have tons of scarves just lying on the bottom of my drawers. I definitely want to invest in something like this. :)

  24. Hi Emily-My question: where did you get the belt hanger that is behind the owl scarf? I really like it & would like to get one. Thanks so much!

  27. That's a great idea for organization. I live in a bungalow, so I placed some of those removable 3M hooks on the walls going upstairs to hold my scarves. Pretties up the stairway and everything is right there, which makes me much more prone to using all my scarves. :)

  28. I use the shower curtains on the hanger idea for scarves. Not as cute as this, but, a cheap alternative if you have bulky scarves or lots of them.

  34. This is super cute, I think I have too many scarves for that though. Me being totally OCD have mine organized by color and by weight/thickness so the thinner ones are on a tie rack that slides out from the side of my closet and the more chunky ones are on a similar hanger type storage thing. I love the owl look tho!
