Achieve order in a snap with a few easy tricks


It doesn't matter whether you live in a tiny apartment or a sprawling mansion—clutter seems to catch up and you're always on the lookout for more storage options to keep your place clean. It's a vicious cycle of reorganizing your things and going back to the same mess.

Worry not as there's always enough space for all your things. The trick? It's not about what you put in your stash at home, it's how you put it. You just need to get creative when it comes to maximizing these secret spots. If you've been having trouble finding ways to lessen chaos at home, we've rounded up some ideas that you can start with:

To store your clutches and smaller bags, you can use a kitchen lid rack. These are much cheaper and would help you avoid the hassle of installing individual hooks. You can also use these to store makeup palettes, your favorite CDs, or even small magazines.

If you ever find yourself in a jumble of cords and remote controls in your entertainment space, you may find velcro very useful. All you have to do is stick one side on the gadget, the other where you want to mount it and you can arrange them carefully on the wall or under the TV stand.

In the kitchen, bundles of notes and bills stuck to the fridge can be an eyesore. Remedy this with some old utensils and magnet bullets—simply glue the magnet at the end of the fork. You can even color coordinate them for each family member so you would know who the message is from before you even read it!
