How do you all organize clothes in the overhead cabinets?

Hi all...

We keep our clothes in the overhead cabinets above the bed in our 19. Do any of you use bins or baskets or something else to keep things organized up there?

Can you recommend any solutions?

Thanks!

Clothes Storage

Dolly:
We've had very good experience using Eagle Creek's Pack-It Cubes. These are zip closed rectangular "cubes" (made from nylon fabric) that are available in various sizes and colors. We each use 2 of the small size (one for underwear, one for socks) and two of the large size (one for shorts/pants and one for folded shirts). By using different colors of cubes, it makes it easy to identify which cube you need, and the cubes keep the items in them from unfolding or falling out of the overhead cabinets. We bought ours from REI, but I sure they're available elsewhere. Highly recommended!

With our 19', we had big bins that fit under the bed. We put some linens and our personal odds and ends above the bed. On the 21', we have clothes in overheads but no organizers because our small clothing items are in the drawers.

We have some of those pack-it things and we could use them for that also.

We too use eagle creek pack it cubes! And ranger rolling items! You will be amazed at the space saved not to mention organization!
Eagle creek goes on sale 30% quite often...on their website.

I went to REI to configure exactly what I needed! The large folders are amazing. We went on a 10 day cruise with just a carryon and never wore the same thing twice!

Google ranger rolling...it works!

We use eBags, which we found cheaper and a better fit than Eagle Creek. 6 of these fit gear in the overhead bins and the depth is perfect. Bought different colors for clothing types. Link here: eBags Medium Packing Cubes - 3 Piece Set - eBags.com

We use dividers for both kitchen stuff and clothes. "Bookend" style makes it easy to rearrange/resize when needed.

I have an open topped storage container from Target (sort of like a short smallish bucket made from material). I couldn't find any more of them there this year so I took Trader Joe's reusable grocery bags and folded the top down over and over until I get to the desired height. It ends up being similar to size and function to the Target container. I jam underwear in one and socks in another and I could probably put t-shirts in one too. I use one for vitamins and other pills too. I even took a medium sized paper sack and folded down the top until it was maybe 4 inches tall and used in for spices to stand up in. What makes them work for us is they are compressible from the sides and can be jammed into the sides of the overheads while you are trying to get to other stuff. Plus folding down the material makes it stand up on it's own and keeps an open top.
