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.

Hang your ironing board

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.

Store slippers in magazine racks

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

Opt for a chalkboard alternative

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.

Use shoe organizers in your pantry

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.

Use a tissue holder as a plastic dispenser

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.

Mount a wall hook on another surface

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.

Use a CD rack in a different way

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.

Install another shower rod

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.

Recycle old drawers

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.
