10 Ways to Get Organized for Less
The 2-packs of ice cube trays found at the dollar store are a perfect solution for storing and organizing small pieces of jewelry, such as earrings, rings, and delicate necklaces. Place the trays inside a bathroom or closet drawer, and no more worries about tangled chains or a single misplaced earring.
The inside walls of a closet are so underutilized. With a simple piece of wire strung along the side and held up by hooks on each end, the space can be used to keep your trove of wrapping paper organized in a row across the bottom of the closet.
Use the pockets for cleaning products, hair products, small dolls and trucks, gloves and hats, and so on. You may be taking things in and out frequently, which requires something sturdy, so it's probably penny-wise to spring for the $10 version rather than the $5 option.
Baby food and jelly jars are the perfect sizes for nails and screws, bobby pins, safety pins, or any other little item that rarely has a home of its own. Give the lid a quick coat of spray paint to liven up the jar and you've got free organizers for every room.
