Every now and then, I take a walk down memory lane and think of all the beloved (and expensive!) necklaces, scarves, sunglasses, and hats I’ve lost over the years. Some were forgotten in restaurants, while others were lost during various outings at the park or beach. Small items are the easiest to misplace, which is why I try my best to take care of, and keep up with, any accessories I currently have. Part of that task means making sure I have ample storage space at home for them, just like I do for the rest of my staples.

However, it’s tough to know just where to put accessories like hats and sunglasses when you’re concerned about them getting damaged, bent, or broken. Handbags are tough, too, since they can accumulate and take up a fair amount of room. AT has done some digging to find the best storage options for valuable but hard-to-store accessories — ensuring that you’ll always be able to find them when you need them.
