QOTW: How do you organize your things?

I love learning how people organize their doll things because sometimes I pick up tips to better organize my doll things. I have two sets of plastic drawers, like so:


On the left, from top to bottom, there are hats, hair accessories and socks/tights, followed by dresses, and the bottom drawer contains miniatures and assorted items (including some extra stands). On the right, from top to bottom, there are shirts (along with Halo and Primrose), then pants (along with Lillian Rose and Emmalynn), and finally stock clothing (in bags) and Blythe carriers. I tend to group items by the same designer together in zipped baggies to make it more organized, at least in the dress drawer.

The majority of my doll shoes live in plastic organizer boxes. The rest of my dolls are on display (either on stands or on couches/chairs), and then I have some other boxes with customizing goodies (trust me, there’s not a whole lot) and random miniatures in another box.

How do you organize your doll things? (Share below any tips you have!)

    I keep props in a dresser drawer and smaller seasonal ones in shoe box containers in a closet. My clothes are in drawer containers from Michael’s and sorted by designer or type of clothes. In those same drawers I have hats, hair stuff and shoes and boots.

    Oh my gosh! Putting stock clothes in plastic bags is such a great idea!! I currently crowd them together in a plastic storage container much too small for ALL of the stock I have. I should upgrade!

    I have so many plastic storage boxes, it’s cray. I have a GIGANTIC one that is just dresses, many for hats, I keep all shoes in an embroidery floss box, then a stacked 4-layer Snapware container for coats/outerwear, separates, socks/stockings, and stock. I know where everything is, but would love to rearrange my system anyway.

    Sadly, I live in a very small place, so there’s no room for having proper storage for my doll things nor a special area where I can display my girls. Most of my dolls live in boxes under my bed. I don’t own many doll clothes and accessories, so the ones I have currently fit in a single small plastic container. Someday, I’ll live in a large enough house with a special room just for my dolls.

    i have a small dolly family, and I typically sew my own stuff. Since my dolls have such different styles, they all have their own little cardboard treasure chests from a craft store. Inside these, I have little plastic boxes with clip-on lids for shoes and other accessories. My dolls live in a playscale cabinet-style dollhouse that is really cute and doesn’t take up much room.
