I think the freezer is a tough place to keep organized. I love how If You Do Stuff, Stuff Gets Done uses reusable grocery bags to sort out beef, pork, poultry and fish. Boxes or totes would work too. As a reminder, make sure to machine wash those reusable bags on a regular basis to prevent food contamination.

Chica and Jo used vertical paper organizers for organizing flat things like cutting boards, candy molds and even foil/plastic wrap/wax paper in the kitchen. Ikea is a great place to buy these.

This is a great storage solution for toothbrushes for young kids. I like it because mounting a cup on the back of a cabinet door means kids can easily reach them, the toothbrushes are off of the counter and when the cup gets sticky and wet and gross (and trust me, it will), you can just removed them from the hooks and throw them in the dishwasher. See below for a list of supplies and a close up picture.

Attach two Command hooks side by side or next to each other. (Use two hooks per cup to keep the cup from tipping to the side).  Punch two holes in the back of the cup with a hole punch, the same distance apart as the hooks. Hang cup up.

This one is pure genius. Dawn Nicole Designs put a tension rod in the back of the bathtub with some "S" hooks to hang shower supplies. I think this would work great for kids bath toys too. It's up and out of the way.

I love this idea for storing curling irons and flat irons by Family Handyman. Curling irons, flat irons and blow dryers and their cords can create such a mess in the bath room. Use an industrial self sticking velcro tape to attach 5-in. lengths of 2-in.- diameter PVC pipe to the vanity door for holding the curling irons. Do the same with pieces of 1-1/2-in.-diameter pipe to hold the cords. to attach 5-in. lengths of 2-in.- diameter PVC pipe to the vanity door to hold the curling irons. I'm gling to have to do this!


Closet Hacks

I love it when you can take an item that you don't need anymore and re-purpose it to make your life easier. This Ice Cube Tray Jewelry Storage is perfect for small things like earrings, bracelets and charms. Ice cube trays also stack on top of each other which means you could store a lot of items in a small space without getting them tangled.

Soda Tab on Hanger

This is one of those ideas that is so super clever. Use a soda pop can tab to double your hanger space. I've seen little gizmos at the store for as much as $6.00 for a dozen and they are bulky and get in the way. The little soda tabs will go un-noticed on hangers that aren't double up. This would also work well to organize outfits together.

Hangers

And speaking of the closet, may ALL TIME favorite hangers, Joy Mangano Huggable Hangers, are back up for grabs via HSN! You'll get 50 Hangers and 2 bonus storage organizers for $39.95. Plus, for a limited time, shipping is free (no code needed).

I love these hangers, they are sturdy and hug your clothes nice and tight so nothing ever falls on the floor. Plus, the free bonus storage containers make this a nice bargain. Don't be fooled by the cheaper ones in the box stores, those aren't nearly as sturdy. Head on over to Amazon to check the reviews and price compare.

shower rings

I saw recently on Pinterest where pinners were suggesting a closet organizing hack of putting shower rings along the bottom of a hanger so you could hang multiple tank tops. I wasn't successful with that. I tried several different kinds of hangers and the rings just slid all over the hanger making it unbalanced when I removed a top. After playing around with the rings I came up this idea instead. 

shower rings

Use a round shower ring that snaps together. You can pick up a dozen of them at Target for around $1.25. Then add "C" type shower rings (up to 7 or 8) to the ring ($2.48 for 12 via eBay.com). What you're left with is a perfect little gizmo just right for hanging your camis and scarves. 

Storage Solutions Shoe Rack

A MUST for Every Room Door in the House

Over the door shoe holders (as low as $5.87, via Walmart.com - free pick up) can be a very useful tool in every closet in the house. One of my favorite places to put one is over the coat closet door. It is the PERFECT place to store all of your winter gear like gloves, scarves, umbrellas and ear muffs. They are also great in the bathroom to hold make-up, hair products, deodorant, and I love mine on the pantry door for all those packaged items that tend to get lost.


Bedroom Storage Ideas

At first glance, this may seem more like an office idea, and it would work there too. But I think a lot of people charge their phones and devices in the bedroom. I know we got tired of having a mess of charging cords from the floor up to the top of the nightstand and this solved that problem in 10 minutes.

  1. Adhere the power strip to the back of the drawer using sticky backed Velcro. 2. Drill a small hole in the back of the nightstand. Make sure it's large enough to get the plug through. Put the cord over the back of the drawer and out the hole. 3. Attach all of your chargers and close the drawer. No cord mess anymore!
