These days, you probably get so busy for weeks and even months at a time that you’ve unconsciously allowed your home to become a cluttered mess. But no worries, because there are plenty of quick and easy ways for you to keep your stuff organised without having to break the bank.
Bring your home to life by turning chaos into a clean and quirky abode with these cool do-it-yourself organising hacks.
These DIY shoeboxes double as great underwear organisers to keep your closet drawers looking neat and chic. Just take a box, cut it according to your drawer space, and voila! You may also spruce up old shoeboxes and turn them into instant cord organisers so you never have to trip on a wire ever again. Talk about versatility!
Missing a night table? Make your own bedside table by taking an old stepladder and “upcycling” it. You can even put your mobile phone on the steps so you don’t have to keep it under your pillow while you sleep. It’s not much space-wise, but it makes a truly unique accent piece for your bedroom.
Are you constantly littering your house with little scraps of paper where you scribble your to-do lists on a daily basis? Get yourself organised by creating your own DIY memo board using your ordinary photo frame. Just frame a nice scrap of fabric with a pretty pattern, or even old wallpaper, and hang it up or leave it to stand where you can easily see and reach it. Get yourself a nice dry-erase marker and you’re ready to write those errands on the glass. You may even do some ribbon work to attach the marker to the frame for easy access.
If you’re always misplacing your keys, you may also convert your picture frame into a very useful key holder. Simply remove the glass, cover the back part with paper, fabric, or paint, attach hooks, and hang. Easy!
Create your own floating storage space with jars where you can put all your spare nails, buttons, pins, clips, and other small and easy to lose supplies in. Attach the lid of each jar onto the underside of your shelf and you’ve got yourself an instant floating storage that does not take up even an inch of shelf space.
The cabinets under the kitchen or bathroom sink are usually the most cluttered because it serves as a storage space for household cleaners. Keep spray bottles, rags, work gloves, etc. organised by securing a tension rod in the cabinet and hanging frequently used items there. Beats having to scour the entire cabinet to find what you’re looking for, doesn’t it?
