I have scarves I've kept in plastic containers in the closet. It's such a pain to pull out the bin and sort through the scarves for one that I want to wear that I just never wear them.
I recently stumbled across an idea on Pinterest that solves the problem for me quickly and inexpensively:
A clothes hanger + shower curtain rings = accessible scarf storage!
I didn't have shower curtain rings on hand but they are very inexpensive. (I actually picked these up at a thrift store for 75 cents)
Now I can see all my scarves at a glance and find one to wear without any trouble at all. It also keeps them from getting too many wrinkles in them.
