From tangled wires to pens and other accessories—you can organize all of your stuff using items found in the home. To make it more convenient, you may place these organizers in the different rooms of the house to avoid clutter and misplaced essentials.

Tray with Partitions


Power cords, cell phone chargers, and other gadget accessories can be stored in a tray with partitions. You may designate a space for each item—since it’s out in the open, identification should be a breeze. Place your tray near a power supply to make charging easier.

Cutlery Tray


If you’ve lost the original case of your spare spectacles or sunglasses, protect them from scratches by storing them in a cutlery tray. It can double as decor on your vanity table, too.

Disposable Plastic Containers


If reused often, these containers may leak harmful chemicals into your food. Give them a second chance by using them to organize your craft materials. The container itself is translucent, which makes it easy to see what’s inside—and it’s stackable, too.

Old Aluminum Baking Pans


You may use them as neat kitchen drawer organizers for your table napkins, runners, and coasters.

Celadon or Chinese Porcelain Collection


Don’t let your celadon or Chinese porcelain collection just sit behind glass doors. Turn them into pretty and functional depositories for small items like house keys, paper clips, or coins.

Pretty Chocolate Boxes


You may use these in your home office as a pen, paper, or letter holder.

A Small Baul or Jewelry Box


Turn a small baul or jewelry box into a medicine kit for your bedside table just in case you get a headache or stuffy nose in the middle of the night.

Small Trays


Arrange a message central by your telephone on a small tray to keep everything organized and easily accessible. Have a few pencils, paper, and a phone book handy.

Old Shoeboxes


Make your own mail sorting system using old shoeboxes. Assign an inbox and an outbox, and if you’re feeling crafty, cover the boxes in cute wrapping paper to match the color of your room.

Old Grocery Baskets


Have a couple of old grocery baskets near your front entrance or in every area in your home and you’ll hardly have a misplaced item again. Teach each member of your family to dump every item they see lying around the house, then take turns returning the items to their proper storage.
