- Matching pillow cases for your sheets.
It can be difficult finding a place for your bedsheets especially if you live in a small space. The trick is to fold your bedsheets and put them in matching pillow cases which you can then place on a shelve or inside a drawer.
- Ice tray for your makeup

- PVC Pipes
Organizing socks and underwear is problematic especially in a household with kids. Buy a PVC pipe from your local store and cut it up into sections. Paint these in your kid’s favorite colors and fix them to a board and hang on a wall. Stuff the undies and socks into the pipes and be rid of the menace. This is a cool organization project that your kids might also be interested in. Your kids will be so excited about this genius idea that it will be a blast organizing their personal items. The PVC pipes may also be used to store scarves, small toys, and crafts.
- Scarves on a hanger
If you have several scarves for the cold season, it can be quite a problem organizing them. These little pieces are not easy to fold and leaving them in a pile is simply unacceptable. Take a simple hanger out of the closet and drape your scarves on it. One hanger can comfortably hold five scarves and you could make a loop to keep them secured in place.
- Mason jars for cupcake liners
Glass jars are an organizer’s essential as they can hold everything from paperclips to jewelry. If you love baking, a mason jar may come in handy as storage for cupcake liners.
- Attach a wire basket to the island for everyday kitchen items
It is quite inconvenient to prepare dinner at home when you must find pots, pans, and spoons at the end of a cabinet. The trick is to attach a wire basket to the side of the island. There you can organize everything you need to use for dinner so you have ample time to concentrate on prep work and actual cooking. If you don’t have a wire basket, choose a tension rod on which you can hang pots and pans for easy access. A shower caddy may also be effective on the island side to hold fruits and breakfast snacks for a less hassle free morning.
- Cork Boards
These have a number of uses around the house, including storing measuring items that easily get lost in the drawers. Hang a board at the back of your cabinet and use it to organize all your measuring tools for better access.
These should ideally be in every home as they are a great way to avoid clutter. If you have a small room to start with, choose a medium-sized bin that sits in a corner. The purpose of such a bin is to hold everything that you plan to donate in future. Collect everything from clothes to electronics in the “donate” bin so that these don’t end up cluttering your space. Once full, take the container to a local goodwill store. If you get a receipt for these donations it is possible to get tax exemptions.
- Tiered Baskets
These save lots of counter space and thankfully, they could be used in the kitchen, bedroom or garage. A tiered basket can hold snacks, fruits, socks and some garage tools. Some genius parents place healthy snacks on the bottom of a basket and on top, out of reach of children, they put those that require parental permissions.
