You don’t always have to invest in an expensive organizing system to solve these storage headaches. Sometimes the perfect organizer for the job was originally designed for something else entirely, and a little creative thinking can make it work in a whole new way.

Must-Try Organizing Hacks You May Have Not Thought Of:
The first step is sorting and decluttering. Choose a regular (I recommend weekly with your cleaning schedule) routine to sort and you won’t fall behind or start to see piles develop throughout your house. Then…
- When choosing containers, when you need to quickly access the items inside them, choose see-through containers. When you just need to store them out of the way, choose wicker or some other material and just hang a simple label on them for easy access.
- Use mesh files for anything you can. I use them for pans, purses, towels, and anything else that will fit. They fit in tight spaces and are see-through. Brilliant!
- A great Must-Try Organizing Hacks You May Have Not Thought Of! Use over-the-door mesh shoe organizers anywhere you can. Overall your bedroom doors and bathroom doors. They are perfect for storing lots of items in a tight, unused space.
- Use binder clips to organize all your cords. Simply insert the ends through the loops and clip and voila!
