We Tried It: The Purse Hangers Reese Witherspoon Is Obsessed With, Approved by The Home Edit

Eight months into the pandemic, I was finally ready to try the one trend I had avoided: organizing my closet. My Instagram and Twitter feeds had become flooded with glitzy videos of DIY shoe racks, color-coordinated drawers and tutorials on folding t-shirts, ideas I wrote off as too expensive or time consuming.

It wasn’t until I binge watched the wildly popular Netflix home makeover series Get Organized with The Home Edit that I understood the hype — specifically after seeing Reese Witherspoon fawn over a set of clear, chunky purse hangers Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin (founders of The Home Edit) put in her closet.

For the past 15 years, I had been “organizing” my purses on a cracked, wooden bag holder my friend and I had built and painted during a sleepover. It held up over the years as my purse collection grew, but the lime green and lady bug design just weren’t my style anymore.

I craved something sleeker and more functional — I needed to try the hangers that made Reese Witherspoon squeal with joy. Enter: Luxe Bag Care’s Acrylic Handbag Hanger.

Who Tried It: Morgan Smith, Editorial Assistant

How It Worked: Each handbag hanger sells for $15 (on the Luxe Bag Care website or The Container Store) and holds about 12 lbs. I ordered three as I own about 10 bags I wanted to store.

They shipped quickly and came in cute, careful packaging. After dismantling my old wooden organizer (RIP) and clearing space on my closet rod, I divided the purses by size and weight. The hangers were wide and felt extremely durable. I could comfortably loop three purses with medium-size straps around each hanger. To fit more purses, I stuck some of my smaller clutches and wristlets in my larger tote bags and hung those on the hangers. The purses did not slip off or budge an inch once I put them on the hangers.

The Verdict: I’m with Reese on this one — these hangers rock, and solved a problem I didn’t even know existed. My closet doors open much easier now, and I have more space in my closet to justify my online shopping habit. Luxe Bag Care’s hangers also make organization fun: my bags look like dangling art now instead of a cluttered mess in the back of my closet. I’m recommending these to all my family and friends! The clear design pairs well with any style, and purses need love too.
