7. DIY Closet Organizers
Hats and scarves! The two awkward things in the closet that are hard to find a space for. Make your own organizing rack with a single sturdy hanger and shower curtain rings. Chances are you’ve already got a hanger on hand, and the rings only cost $2-3.
8. Recycled Creamer Bottles
I’ve been looking at food containers differently lately. I’ve always just thought of them as trash when I was done using them, but a lot of them can actually be very useful storage containers. The Coffee-Mate Creamer bottles are particularly nice for storing and keeping pantry items fresh. The small opening at the top is just the right size for dispersing small snacks, sugar, chocolate chips, nuts, etc. You can also use them as a water bottle!
9. Vertical Bakeware Storage
Instead of stacking your pans and baking dishes on top of each other (when you have to remove every single one to get to the bottom), turn a bakeware organizer on its side and secure it to the cupboard with cable clips. It’s like a mini shelf that’s just the right size for all of those otherwise hard-to-get-to dishes.
