25 Simple & Practical Home Organization Hacks You Need to See
Looking for home organization hacks? This video has techniques that are simple and practical. Grab a cup of chai or coffee and save the tips you like the most.
1. Use a suction-based organizer
It’s generally meant for a dish sponge in the sink, I use it to hold leftover sauce sachets and cheese slices. Now, little packets don’t get lost in the back of the fridge.
2. Store chopping boards
I found a unique way to store chopping boards by installing a tension rod in a drawer. Finally I have a vertical solution with a proper, designated space for everything.
3. No need for a box anymore
To seal opened boxes, simply fold the top parts as shown. This method can become a quick fix. I’ve used this trick so many times to seal packages, until I find the right storage box or if their container is in the dishwasher.
4. A pillowcase trick
It’s easy to fold and store bed sheets, but since pillowcases are smaller, they often get lost and it’s hard to find the ones that match. A good home organization hack is to fold the bedsheet and the other pillowcase and place them inside one of the pillowcases. Easy peasy! This way the entire set stays together.
5. Use a lint roller to remove dust from lampshades
You won’t have to sneeze every time you use a rag to dust anymore.
6. Reuse fancy boxes
No-cost organizing is the best form of organizing. Putting old chocolate boxes to good use is my favorite. A see through Ferrero box is perfect for storing things you want to see more often.
7. Use tension rods in creative ways
Making additional closet shelves with tension rods was one solution that helped me. Keep only lightweight stuff on it.
I used these IKEA organizers to prevent things from falling through the gaps.
8. Place all the eggs in one single container
For those who struggle with limited space in the fridge, ditch the conventional method of storing things. Using an egg tray takes up a ton of space which can be utilized for other things.
9. Reuse fruit and vegetable containers
These small packets of sauce never stand up straight and keep falling, making the fridge look messy. I like to put them in the plastic containers that fruits and vegetables often come in. This trick isn’t just for the fridge; it can be used in many places around the house.
10. Hang up your cups
Use these cup organizers, which you can simply tuck into the cupboards, to make space for other things in the same cabinet.
11. Use baskets
The greatest way to store clutter and conceal items is a basket. It’s useful for storing items without a precise shape. I created a baking basket that solely contains baking supplies. This remains on the top shelf because I don’t use it frequently.
12. Use IKEA shelf dividers
They are really useful for using vertical space within the cabinet and making it easier to get things off the shelves.
13. Organize using vertical space
Purchasing organizers aren’t always necessary. To create a stair-like impression, I used old boxes that were of comparable height. This makes it easier to access items towards the back.
14. Find the end of the tape easily
Sometimes we can spend minutes trying to find the end of the tapes. It’s funny but true. A simple measure of sticking a toothpick in every time you use it can save a lot of time.
15. Fold paper bags
Amazingly, we are turning towards alternatives to plastic these days. Paper bags are pretty large and take up a lot of space. They can be stored together conveniently by folding them in this fashion.
16. Use narrow bottles
One of the most frequently used areas of the house is the kitchen pantry, and we frequently look for ways to arrange it in a more effective and fashionable manner.
I discovered this innovative and cheap method of pantry organization – substituting these convenient bottles for the wide glass jars that are too heavy and big for my mom to hold.
17. Use adjustable shelves
Since storage is at a premium in Indian kitchens and we had several teacups (because we all enjoy sipping chai several times a day) I found these adjustable shelves online. The best part is that the length can be adjusted as needed.
I first lined the shelf with foam to stop the clanking sounds from crockery.
18. Store spice jars
I often speak about home organizing hacks that need no spending. I came up with this tilted shelf divider that makes it easy to pick and place back these tiny glass jars. Simply cut and fold cardboard to adjust the size to your drawer, and you can make yourself an organizer in no time.
19. Store napkins vertically
I enjoy hosting people, so I keep a surplus of attractive paper napkins on hand. This was the most convenient and straightforward approach to storing them vertically.
20. Make attractive lids
Pretty paper napkins can also be used to create attractive lids. You’ll have a prettified jar for yourself in no time if you tuck these napkins along the inside corners of a lid. It’s also easy to change at a later stage.
21. Use sticky tabs
Banging doors and cabinets can get annoying and be damaging to the walls. The minimalist solution I found was to use these tiny tabs that adhere to the wall easily and create a subtle but effective gap between the door handle and the wall.
Isn’t this incredible?
I also use these to make my marble platter anti-scratch and non-stick.
22. Use lazy Susans
They are one of the most effective organization tools. My nuts corner is now easily accessible due to this rotating, game-changing tool.
23. Hang your gloves
As a homemaker, I look for solutions to organize little things here and there. My dishwashing gloves were on my list for a long time. I found this new trick, where I basically stick a clothespin up with double-sided tape. It also holds the dusting cloths.
24. Fold up cords
The most beautiful place can look unattractive due to cords and wires. Everything looks tidy after the cord has been folded and fitted within this cardboard roll.
25. Fold plastic bags
Reusing plastic bags is smart. They are undoubtedly more neat and tidy when folded in this manner. They become easier to manage and occupy less space.
