5 DIY Storage Options for the Modern Homeowner
Like many homeowners, you’re probably exceptionally busy working and taking care of family. Most people don’t have the time to dedicate to comprehensive home organization.
Fortunately, many busy homeowners are now finding creative storage solutions to their organization difficulties! By using items commonly found around the home, you can create a seamless DIY storage solution that brings order to the chaos at home.
In this blog, we’ll focus on five of the leading DIY storage options. However the first step in any organization process is to get rid of the unneeded junk and unwanted clutter. Before you begin making new homes for any of your belongings, start by renting one of Gorilla Bin’s mini or full-sized bins so you can get the garbage out of the way!
Once you’ve done that, it’s time to start economically organizing.
1. Use Old Tin Cans to Storage Stationary
Pens and pencils have a tendency to find their way onto the floor and across tables within your home. It’s important to find the ideal place for those items that could be required at a moment’s notice.
Old tin cans are perfect for this type of needed additional storage space! By stripping the labels from the cans and adding a little paint, you can create a stylish storage solution that can be placed on living room tables or desks throughout the home.
2. Use an Old CD Rack to Keep Track of Tupperware
In the kitchen, Tupperware can be found in various cupboards. This Tupperware can take up valuable space, which could be used for storing cooking implements and dishes. Consider using an old CD rack to store each of your Tupperware lids. This will ensure the lids are held upright, easy to see and easy to reach when required.
3. Use a Small Soap Box for Easy-to-Lose Items
Soap boxes are a relatively inexpensive storage solution that could help prevent children from losing crayons, pencils, paperclips, sticky notes and other smaller items within the home. By simply storing their smaller stationary within a soap box, children can then take the box to school or on family trips for the ultimate travel storage system.
4. Use Old Egg Cartons as Drawer Organizers
Within your home bedroom, you likely have one particular drawer where you store old coins, notes and small items you’ve collected throughout the years. By integrating products such as egg cartons within the drawer space, you can create a dividing area where all smaller products are separated. This will make it far easier next time you require that specific amount of change on short notice!
5. Magnetic Bathroom Strips Offer Quick Storage of Hair Accessories
Those hair pins and tweezers can often find the most awkward spaces in the bathroom to hide. Keep them out in the open by placing them on a magnetic strip located on a bathroom wall. This will provide time saving convenience for those days when there’s only minutes to get ready for work!
