DIY: $1 Hat Organizer


DIY: $1 Hat Organizer

I’m not positive, but it seems like Mr. Z has a hat hoarding problem . . . and is uninterested in giving any away. Which is not a big deal, except now we share a closet. I prefer the closet to be tidy & organized and baseball caps galore can really cramp the “tidiness” factor.

This is a very simple way to keep hats organized – for $1!

What you will need: Hanger & “C Hooks” for a shower curtain
What you do: Attach opened hooks to hanger and place hats on hook – that’s it!

  1. I did this, but I used my dremel to carve little groves in the hanger bottom, so the shower rings had a bit of a place to "rest into", then, they don't slide all over the hanger, and get unbalanced.

    1. So glad I read this tip! I did this with my scarves and they were all over the place. It was a huge mess! But your idea sounds like the perfect solution!

  2. LOVE this idea - I was just saying how I really needed one of those hat racks for all of my kid's hats, but this will do the trick and best of all it is inexpensive! My favorite!!!

  3. good idea. I think that very same brand of shower curtain hangers cost more than $1.00 down here in Austin, TX.

  4. I think that is a great idea, but how do you hang the baseball caps that are not adjustable.

  5. I found some curtain rings as Ikea that are open and have a clip that would work for the hats that aren't adjustable. Thanks for the great idea!

  6. Okay, I just found you via pinterest, and I LOVE this! What type of hook did you use to hang the hanger onto the wall?
    I'm pretty sure my husband's hat collection would take 3 hangers like this! haha but it'd be a heck of a lot better than this awful one that hands from the ceiling.

  7. Thank you! The mess of ball caps has been driving me crazy for years! This is absolutely a better solution than the hat rack I bought.

  13. Don't forget to hot glue the C hooks to the hanger and they won't end up on the floor!!

    on lifehacker I went a step further and used a shower curtain rod between two walls. I have over a hundred vintage hats so I need the mass storage/display
