Home Hacks to Get Organized for Summer

5 Hacks for Repurposing Old Items Into Storage Helpers

Once spring cleaning is done you’ve probably put the bleach away and your carpets have been cleaned by a professional carpet cleaner, it’s time to have some fun and create storage space to keep up that beautifully organized home. Here are five simple home hacks that can really change things up! Repurposing old items is not only great for keeping the Earth happy, it will also spruce up your home without requiring you to spend a ton of money.

Suitcases

hacksVintage suitcases are lovely for creating a timeless piece with a lot of flair. You can add legs for a small storage stool or table, or simply display it on top of a desk to organize your beauty products. They are classy and attractive enough to display on their own, and can store sheets, clothing, or other seasonal items for added organization in the home. Though you may need to use an upholstery cleaner to clean out the inside if the suitcase, the work will be well worth the effort.

Mason Jars

hacksIf you happen to find yourself with too many jars lying around, why not use them to hold utensils or other small household items? Not only are they pleasant to look at, they fit into many décor styles and can be extremely handy. For the powder room, you can fill your mason jars with colorful marbles and keep your makeup brushes in order as well as within reach. When storage is right at your fingertips, you are more likely to stay clutter-free, which is a wonderful feeling.

Shower Hooks

hacksThe beauty of shower hooks is that they can hang almost anything. From ties to purses, you can keep your wardrobe in line with these simple accessories. In the kitchen you can hang the hooks from rods to ensure that your pots and pans stay orderly. Although they are small, these puppies can pack a big punch in keeping a home tidy.

Wine Boxes

hacksEveryone loves a good glass of wine, but the boxes that multiple bottles come in are great for stowing away shoes and other household items that are not used often. You can get very creative with the options, but using the boxes for books, Christmas decorations, and children’s toys are among the favorites. Though if you love wine, storing the bottles in these may just be the best option for you!

Hanging Shoe Racks

hacksAlthough great for keeping shoes out of the way and easily accessible, why not have a little fun with those plastic hanging shoe racks? They are compact and can be hung almost anywhere, making staying orderly a breeze. If the pantry is looking a little hectic, use this product to store small snack items or spices. If the bathroom has tons of makeup cluttering up the counter, the small compartments will be perfect for allowing you to see what you have, but keep it neat.

 

 

Although these are only a few home hacks, there are many ways to keep your home organized without breaking the bank! You do not need a large budget or even a ton of time – just a little creativity can make all of the difference in the world for a tidy home.
