Creative Storage Solutions for Your Home | Cute Beltz

A place for everything: It’s a nice idea, but who has the space? In fact, your home may be full of hidden storage possibilities—you just need to know where to look. Declutter your home and get organized with these storage solutions with ordinary household items used in unexpected ways.

Jewelry Boxes

Those little boxes are so sturdy and trim that you hate to throw them out. So don’t. Instead, clip them together to create tidy divided storage for pens and pencils, lipsticks, plastic flatware, whatever it is that clutters your drawer.

Glass Organizers

Decorative glass containers are ideal holdalls for small items in the bathroom, office, or kitchen. They’re the perfect size to store small scoops, tea bags, and muffin cups.

Shower Caddy Gift-Wrap Organization

Wall-mount a shower caddy for the perfect gift-wrapping center. Store cards and stationery on the shelves. Attach ribbon to a mesh container and hang it from one of the hooks to store pens and pencils. Rest wrapping paper on the bottom shelf and hang scissors from a hook.

Tissue Boxes

Dispense plastic grocery bags with ease by stuffing empties into an old tissue box stored under the sink; simply pull out one when you need it. For a slimmer solution, try a cardboard paper-towel tube.

Dish-Drying Rack

Keep coloring books and art supplies organized in a dish-drying rack. Stack the books, like plates, between the prongs. Store markers, crayons, and pencils in the utensil caddy.

Spice Containers

These squat, clear-topped jars (sold at kitchen supply stores) can keep the loose bits that accumulate on your desktop and in your drawers—stamps, Post-it notes, paper clips, rubber bands, etc., etc., etc.—under control.

Colored Bins

Assign a colored bin or basket to each family member to hold items they’ll want to grab as they leave the house (keys, permission slips, mail, umbrellas, gloves, etc.).
