If everyone in the world
excelled in the same areas, the world would be a very boring place! Some people
are naturally gifted at organizing, while for others it can be a struggle.
These tips are for those that fall into the organizationally challenged group.
So, check out these hacks, create a plan, and get organized.
- Magazine holders are
inexpensive and provide so many ways to organize your home. Use these
multi-functional organizing wonders for a gift wrap station, toilet paper
storage, stacking items in your freezer, lid storage, to hide your router,
arrange flip flops or water bottles, and so much more.
- Shoe organizers will
become your best friend. Cut them to size and use them for all your organizing
tasks. Toys, pantry items, cleaning items, beauty supplies, baby clothes,
gardening tools, school supplies the possibilities truly are endless for what
you can organize with these space savers.
- Tension rods are
next on the home organizing hack list. Stagger two rods to create a shoe
holder, organize scarves, display artwork, hang cleaning products underneath
the cabinet, and use them to divide drawer space.
- One of the secrets to getting organized is knowing that paper
towel holders don’t have to be used just for paper towels! Use standing
paper towel holders to stack rolls of tape, ribbon, cookie cutters, or bangles.
A side hanging paper towel holder can organize necklaces, scarves, belts, and
can make a roll of garbage bags easily accessible.
- It’s time to finally put those shoe boxes you have
been holding onto to good use. Cut them in half and use them as draw dividers
for your undergarments. Create a charging station out of decorated shoe boxes.
Plastic shoe boxes are perfect for organizing single serve snacks and packets
in your pantry.

When it comes to electronics, the cables and wires that go with each electronic item may get confusing. Label each of these with their corresponding piece to make assembling easier when you are ready to take them out of storage.
Take apart your electronics when needed for safe transportation/storage. Electronics with big battery packs or multiple pieces should be disassembled. This will prevent the possibility of the battery leaking or the pieces being damaged.
Back up your information
If you are storing important items such as a computer, phone, etc. make sure you have all the information within these items that you need. Also, be sure to back up any documents that you may need before you remove the item from storage.
To ensure your items do not bump or scratch against each other or the storage container, cushion your electronics with packing material. This can include towels, socks, bubble wrap, packing paper, and more, as long as it is something soft yet protective.
