How to store a belt – 13 belt storage ideas
Belts don’t take up much space but they can still be tricky to store…especially if you have lots of them.
Most of the belt storage ideas involve hanging your belts. This online retailer recommends that you hang your belt from the belt buckle so it hangs down straight. You don’t want to just lay your belt over a clothes hanger because it could change the shape of your belt over time.
But hanging your belts may not be possible depending on the type of buckle you have. For instance, if you have a cowboy belt buckle you may not be able to hang it from the buckle. In this case you may have to loosely coil the belt and store it inside a dresser drawer or on a shelf in the closet.
Luckily there are a variety of ways to store and organize belts.
Hopefully one of these belt storage solutions will work for you.
Scroll through them all to see which one is right for you…and your belts!
1) Drawer Dividers to help store belts
If you have space in a dresser drawer you could store your belts in there. And to make it even tidier you could use drawer dividers to create separate compartments for each belt.
You can roll your belts into coils, but don’t roll them too tightly especially if you have leather belts.
And a drawer organizer will help keep your belt coiled and prevent a jumbled mess in your drawer.
2) Hanging Closet Belt Holder
One of the main problems with hanging belts from traditional horizontal clothes hangers is that you need to balance them perfectly or they’ll tilt to one side.
This interestingly-shaped hanger from Niclogi has found a way to eliminate the tipping.
The belts just all slide down to the middle.
It is a well-rated and popular belt hanger, but the downside is that you’ll have to take off the belts on one side to access a belt. The first belt on the hanger will be the last one out.
So if the belt that perfectly matches your outfit is the one closest to the center, you’ll have to remove all the others on that side to get at it. This shouldn’t be a big deal though unless you have a big collection of belts…then that could get annoying.

3) Clothes Hanger with Belt Hooks
This wooden hanger has 6 belt hooks on each side of the hanger for a total of 12 hooks.
It’s a good way to store your belts vertically and it won’t take up much room on your closet rod.
It is a highly-rated and popular belt hanger.

4) Cup Hooks Screwed into a Wooden Clothes Hanger or Board
This is a simple, DIY belt storage idea. Hang a belt from a cup hooks.
You can screw the cup hooks into a piece of wood and make your own belt organizer, or you can screw the cup hooks into a wooden hanger (like shown above).
If you do put the cup hooks into a piece of wood you could screw your belt rack to your closet wall, or screw it into the side of a closet tower shelf if you have a closet system.
5) Hang your Belts from Shower Curtain Rings slipped over a Clothes Hanger
I know in this photo it shows scarves hanging through the shower curtain rings, but you could adopt this idea for belts.
If you just looped your belt through the ring it may slightly warp your belt over time, so you’d be better to get easy-open shower curtain rings and hang your belts by their belt buckles.
The bread bag-closure tabs you see on the clothes hanger are to prevent the shower curtain rings from sliding around.
6) Over the Door Holder
You could slip your belts over the hooks on an over the door organizer such as this one by Lynk.
It may fit over the closet door, or you could hang it from the back of your bedroom door.
(This is a well-rated organizer by Lynk, but you may be able to find cheap ones at our local dollar store or second-hand store.)
7) Place your Belts inside a Storage Box
You can loosely roll up your belts and then store them inside storage boxes or bins.
Then just set the box on any flat surface that you’ve got.
This could be inside a drawer, on a closet shelf, a wall shelf, or even on top of your dresser. (This last option is best if you have attractive looking storage bins since it’ll be on display.)
I think western-style belts would look great inside a nice, rustic storage box.
8) Sliding Belt Rack by Rev-A-Shelf
The company Rev-A-Shelf makes quality closet accessories and this highly-rated sliding belt rack is no different.
It has 9 hooks to store your fashion accessories. You could put one belt per hook, or even double-up if you have a large belt collection.
It’s cool that it slides out. So you’ll be able to slide it out to get a good look at your belts without having to reorganize your whole closet just to see them.
Walmart sells it has a 2-pack…so you could have one for your side of the closet and one for your partner’s side.
Amazon sells it as a single rack, but you can get it in Gray or Oil Rubbed Bronze finish in addition to this chrome version.

10) The Block Wooden Belt Holder
The company Houndsbay makes this wooden belt holder that’ll hold up to 14 belts. So it’ll hold a fairly big collection of belts.
Just like other hanging closet organizers, you’ll need to make sure the weight is balanced on each side of the hook or it’ll tip over.
This style of belt organizer is good because it doesn’t take up much space on your closet rod.

11) Stackable Acrylic Belt Holders
This is a pretty unique belt organization idea. It comes with 4 of these acrylic holders that remind me of hollow hockey pucks.

What’s good about this option is your belts are clearly visible. You’ll be able to easily find the one you want. (Sometimes that isn’t so easy with hanging belt organizers.)
They also make this in a 3-pack, 5-pack or 8-pack.

13) Store your Belts inside the Boots or Shoes they go with
I came across this easy DIY belt storage idea on YouTube, and I thought it was a clever idea. Simply roll up your belt and store it inside the boots or shoes that it goes best with.
That way when you’re grabbing your footwear for a special occasion you’ll have the belt inside it reminding you to wear that accessory too.
To get your belts rolled up you may want to try and Marie Kondo method (aka KonMarie method) of rolling up belts for storage (see below).
