9 Organizing Ideas to Try This Weekend
Unleash your inner domestic goddess or DIY diva with these interesting solutions
Who doesn't look forward to the weekend? For many of us, it is the perfect time to relax, unwind, and watch the latest episodes of our favorite TV shows.
However, if you want to feel more productive and accomplished on your days off from work, you should consider improving your space. To help you create a clean and clutter-free sanctuary, here are a few tips and tricks to try.
In most homes, the ironing board or kabayo is left against a wall in some dark corner or stuffed inside an already overflowing cabinet.
If you would like to store the board more efficiently (and still keep it within reach), attach a rod to the back and hang it on wall hooks behind your door.

Running out of space in your shoe rack? Don't leave your slippers lying around! Keep them organized in old and unused magazine racks.

Instead of hanging up a chalkboard in your kitchen, why don't you use a picture frame as a whiteboard? You can use a dry-erase or whiteboard marker on the clear glass.

If you do not have enough shelves and cabinets in your kitchen, you can hang shoe organizers on your door. These affordable pieces can help keep your snacks, tumblers, and other essentials in one place.
Are your drawers filled with plastic bags? Gather and place them inside a tissue holder so you can easily get one when you need it.

You can use a wall hook on other surfaces! In this case, the plastic hook was used to keep bibs in place behind a high chair.

This particular idea may need a bit more time and effort but it is a neat way to store your toiletries and reuse an old piece. This is especially useful for small bathrooms that may not have enough floor space.
If you have an unused CD rack or freestanding shelf, mount it on a bathroom wall.

If you need another rack for your toiletries, you can mount another shower rod in your bathroom. Remember: choose one that matches your existing rod and bathroom fixtures.

Do you have broken cabinets lying around your home? You can repaint the drawers and mount them on an empty wall. Screw on more pulls and knobs to organize your accessories.
