20 DIY Home Organization Hacks to Make Your Life Easier

by Simplify

Lisa Burningham is one smart cookie when it comes to developing home organization hacks you can trust. Forget having loose items sliding around in drawers or overstuffed closets where you can’t find a thing. Lisa is sharing her top DIY organization hacks you can start on today so your home looks amazing tomorrow.

The first of her organization hacks is to buy a tension rod from Walmart. Install this tension rod at the front of any of your kitchen drawers and use it to store your measuring cups. All you have to do is place each measuring cup handle side down between the drawer face and the tension rod and they’ll be neat and out of the way.

Next, head to Dollar Tree and buy a cooling rack to store your jewelry inside your closet. As organization hacks go, this one couldn’t be any easier or more affordable. Simply hang the rack directly on the door or wall with command hooks, and you can display your sunglasses, necklaces, bracelets, and earrings here.

Paper towel holder

Another clever home organization hack is to use a paper towel holder to store your hair accessories. The center rod is a great place to stow a variety of headbands and hair ties, and you can easily remove and reattach the top of it when you’re done. You can also use a paper towel holder to organize the belts inside your closet.

Surprisingly enough, plastic chopping mats are a great solution for storing fabric remnants. By placing a chopping mat inside each folded remnant and pinning the fabric around it, you can slide your fabric remnants inside any drawer and they will stay nice and flat.

    I also used old plastic place mats to line the bottom of the laundry room cabinet and the silverware drawer instead of using shelf liner. The mats catch the spills and easy to wipe off or replace .

    The "pop socket" that people put on the back of their phones - very inexpensive to hang that squeegee or lofa on. You can also put one of those "pop sockets in your closet going out- to hang your keys on. Bet you could come up with more ideas!
