Have you heard about them - trust me you have heard! And I bet you have some of the fancy ones in your wardrobe too. But we keep only the special sarees into them. But it is convenient to arrange your sarees even if you have a small space, or when you are traveling.

Tip 4: Do Some Saree Color Coding
Another way of storing your sarees is by color-coding them. Some people tend to wear certain colours for certain occasions and if you are that person this tip is going to help you.
Tip 5: Separate Saree from Other Attires
