Cluttered countertops and overflowing cabinet drawers can put a damper on your home, so it’s worth taking the time to find organizational solutions that work. You can help streamline your space and keep everything you need in easy reach with these simple tips. Plus, think of all the time you’ll save once you no longer need to search for everything!
Corral loose lids
Have an old magazine holder laying around? If your kitchen has an array of mismatched food storage containers, place the lids inside the magazine holder to keep them organized and in one central place.
Tidy up with a tin
With its separate compartments, a muffin tin is a smart way to contain small items like jewelry, beads for craft projects or office supplies like paper clips.
Add a cord keeper
Power cords can clutter your countertops, so keep them under control when not in use by applying an adhesive “cord bundler” to items like coffee makers and stand mixers.
Repurpose old bowls
Try reusing some of your shallow dishes or bowls as organizers inside your junk drawer for odds and ends. You can place a non-slip mat underneath the bowls to keep them from shifting when you open and close the drawer.
Smart sheet storing
To make it easier to find a full set of sheets the next time you make your bed, store your fitted sheet, flat sheet and extra pillowcases all together in another pillowcase.
