5 Simple Storage Solutions You Need To Know

Keep your home neat and orderly without spending a dime!


Whether you live in a compact apartment or a huge home, it's safe to say that as homeowners, we're always on the lookout for storage options that can help keep our place tidy. After all, a clutter-free home is a stress-free home. To help lessen the chaos in your safe haven, we've rounded up five inventive organizing ideas that you may want to consider: 

If you need a nifty way to store guest towels, you can use a surface wine rack. These are much cheaper than fancy storage bins and it allows you to get what you need without disturbing the rest of the pile. Consider keeping the biggest towels on top and organizing the smaller pieces below.

If you ever find yourself in a jumble of office supplies, you may find spare ice cube trays very useful. Try using it to segregate paper clips, thumbtacks, and staple wires before sliding it in your desk drawer. 

If you aren't too keen on spending money on acrylic dividers, you can still avoid untidiness in your vanity by using unused decorative bowls and saucers to organize your jewelry. Having a cute display can inspire you to keep it neat, too! 

In the kitchen, scattered plastic bags and totes can be an eyesore. Keep them out of sight by sticking an old tissue box at the back of the cupboard door. This way, you can easily find a bag to use without rummaging through an entire drawer. 

Got a lot of file boxes lying around? Put them to good use by using it to store dry produce! You can even color coordinate the labels so you would know what is inside even before looking through it.
