    Organize Your Tupperware 

    It is challenging to store Tupperware. The best idea is to buy Tupperware of the same type and size. Then rack the covers and the bottom halves together, and you will have saved a lot of space by doing this.

    Plastic Bag Holder 

    You might require a plastic bag for something urgently, and you might have to go looking. Instead of that, you can save an old tissue box and use that to keep plastics, and whenever you need it, you can take out plastic and use it. In this way, you are using an old tissue box and saving time to find plastics easily. 

    Above The Cabinet Storage 

    Once you use up all your space in the cabinet, you might want some other space. There might be many things that you do not use anymore, and you can use this to keep all those extra things on top of the cabinet, so you only have to remove them when you require them. You can get an excellent wire basket and store items above cabinets. In this way, you can easily see what is on top of the cabinets and save some space. 

    Recycle Boxes So You Can Organize Your Freezer  

    If you stock up many things in your freezer, then it can become quite a lot. You can use some old cardboard boxes without the top and use them to store items in your freezer. When you want something, then you do not have to go hunting for it. You can simply look for the box.

    It can be frustrating if you have to take out a bag from a box every single time you want one. A simple hack is to make a two curtain rod hanger. You can find these in some hardware shops as well. 

    Hang Your Measuring Spoons 

    You may have seen people mounting knives on the walls. You can also mount measuring spoons inside a cabinet. In the cabinet where you store all your baking supplies, you can hang up your measuring spoons to make them easier to find and save you some space. 

    DIY Tension Rod

    Hang A Fruit Basket In Your Bathroom 

    You can keep your soaps, shampoos, etc., in a fruit basket. This can be a great and valuable way to save some space in your bathroom, especially if you have a small bathroom.

    Tic Tak Bobby Pin Case 

    If you always lose your bobby pins, then this is an excellent way to keep everything in one place. Since bobby pins are tiny, it is easy to lose them, so if you keep them in an old tic tick box, you can always find the bobby pins and keep them back once you finish using them. You will also be saving the plastic from getting wasted and save some bobby pins from getting lost. 

    DIY Cell Phone Charging Station  

    If you wish to keep your cell phone hidden, you can turn an old book into a charging station near you, so no one will know when you are getting the phone charged.

    DIY Earring Organizer 

    You might have many cardboard boxes lying around, and it might seem like they could be beneficial at some point.

You can also use the mating half of your box as a stand for the earing box sections. 

    Use A Coke Crate To Store Ties 

    Storing ties can be tricky because there might not be any proper place to keep them. You cannot always fold them because there isn’t a suitable place to support them. You can roll up all your ties and store them each in a compartment of the coke crate. This is a beneficial and great way to keep your ties organized.

    Twine Keeper 

    No matter how well you roll your threads, wool, etc., it always gets mixed and turns into a mess. You can store it in a sugar dispenser, which is better as it stays away from any tangles.

    Create A Gallery Wall For Your Kid’s Artwork 

    Your kids might make many drawings or paintings, and you can keep a particular wall or corridor in the house for them to put up their artwork. It does depend on how much art your children do because the more they draw, the more you will need to put things up. 

    Photo Labeled Toy Storage 

    Small children might not read things if you write the names of their toys on drawers. Due to this, they might not even feel like keeping these things in the drawers. You should draw or print some pictures and keep those on the drawers, so your children know where to find the toys. 


    Everything that you read above is from things that are not that difficult to make. Many of the hacks recycle items, so you save money, space, and the environment. When things are not in order, it can look like everything is taking up too much space, but once you get everything settled, you will realize that you can always manage the space you have if you use it well and be smart about it.
