Get Two Weeks of Your Life Back
According to the National Association of Professional Organizers, the average American spends 55 minutes a day searching for things they know they own, but cannot find. We did the math and that equates to roughly 7 hours a week; 28 hours a month; 336 hours a year. Soak that in.
We spend 14 days just looking for stuff.
1. Tame the jewelry drawer
2. Corral the craft area
Check out our Recollections® Craft Storage for some great pieces you can mix & match to fit any space.
3. Give the car keys their very own place to call home.
Pop one of these zebra print trays by the door and you’ll have a handy spot to drop keys and mail.
4. Reclaim use of the hall closet.
Here are a few of our favorite easy DIY storage ideas using everyday items to help you get started – one little area at a time. They’re really simple and you don’t have to spend a ton of money on supplies.
5. Hang a basket on the wall for towel storage.
Use one you already have, or check out your Michaels store for tons of baskets in all sizes and colors.
6. Use a glass container to hold make-up brushes.
Add polished river rocks, glass gems or marbles to hold the brushes upright.
7. Fill mason jars with spices and dried foods to create a utilitarian yet chic display in the kitchen.
Use fabric and twine to dress up your jar lids. And if you’re hankering for more mason jar ideas, look no further!
8. Repurpose an over-the-door-organizer for use in the pantry or guest bathroom.
Taking a storage element out of its intended environment and using it for something entirely different is liberating! Try it with some of these.
