    It's been a few years since I overhauled my closet/storage organization, and I've been very comfortable with all but one aspect of the situation.  

    For whatever reason, I've never been thrilled with where/how I store my belts.  I've heard conflicting opinions on the subject, and I've alternated between rolling them and stuffing them into something, hanging them, lying them flat, etc.  I was wondering how others in this forum store their belts, and why.

    Thanx for the input.

    Storage? Why don't you just leave them in your pants? Juuuust kidding, lest you think this was the GQ Forum. [​IMG] I've had the same dilemma myself, and I settled on hanging. Being somewhat handy around the house, I fashioned a long holder with pegs out of some teak samples I had lying around. I fastened this to the back of my closet door, and let the belts hang by the buckles. I once had a large apron-like thing with a dozen or so pockets in it (original use unknown), which I used to store rolled up belts in. I got rid of it since I found the belts kept that rolled up shape (especially at the tips) and if they didn't, they'd pop out like a spring.

    I also think hanging is best. If you roll them up, you risk scratching the leather with the buckle, even if you roll them up inside-out.
