We all enjoy tidying our homes — a key sign is when everything is correct. However, hardly anyone likes wasting time on cleaning, dusting, hoovering, mopping, or putting things on the shelves. In other words, we must endure boring activities to achieve our goal here.
Well, not everything is as it seems. We strongly believe that if you learn just a couple of the little tricks mentioned below, you will fall in love with your household chores.
Shelves In The Garage
The space above the garage door seems to be useless. However, it would be best if you thought a bit more creatively. Then you will see that it can be used for putting some quite convenient shelves where you can store a whole number of seasonal items: Christmas decorations and ski equipment, for example.
How To Get The Perfectly Tidy Car
The plastic pockets usually used for storing bathroom accessories are a perfect choice for better organizing the space in your car.
A Second Life For An Old Magazine Rack
Large hair styling accessories (girls, I bet you know what we’re talking about) can be stored vertically in a lovely old rack for magazines and newspapers. To retrieve it from the cupboard or attic and give it another chance to be used — you’ll not regret it!
How To Store Canned Food
An excellent solution for saving space in a small kitchen is a self-made storage box for all those cans crammed into every cupboard. It’s straightforward to make, and its convenience should not be underestimated.
Saving Space In The Closet
You will be surprised at how valuable a simple pull tab from an aluminum can be to help you save space and organize your things rationally. Just fasten it to a clothes hanger, and you’ll understand!
Keeping Tools Close To Hand
Garden tools can be stored on towel rails. Now there’s no need to have them getting dirty in piles on the floor! Plus, they’ll be easier to find this way.
Put Smaller Items In The Hallway.
When we enter our homes, we often put our keys, sunglasses, or new mail wherever we see some free space, creating a mess. A box for small items or a special shelf will solve this problem once and for all.
Containers For Spices
Empty tic-tac boxes are suitable for storing spices and helping you take them to the picnic or wherever you are going without the risk of them getting spilled everywhere.
The sides of kitchen cabinets can be used as additional shelf space. There is also a great place to hang up a hook for a hand towel.
You will need a piece of perforated cardboard and some small hooks. This will help you find anyone a tiny bit of jewelry you need.
Ideas For Lids
Storing the lids of various containers is often complicated: they always spill out of the cupboards and take up a lot of space that could be used for more important things. Putting a drainage rack or a unique bar in the drawer may help to organize these items more wisely.
Establishing Internal Order
Even if no one looks inside your cabinets, do not turn them into a mess. Arrange everything in drawers logically and neatly, or install shelves inside cupboard doors wherever possible.
Space in the lingerie drawer can be wisely organized using plastic pipes or cups, which can be found in many hardware stores. Another problem was solved!
Instead of one colossal laundry basket, use several smaller boxes. It will help to sort things out in advance.
A Drawer Under The Bed
Drawers from old furniture can still be helpful to you: put some fresh bedclothes there and hide them under the bed until needed.
A Magnetic Cosmetics Kit
Stick some small magnets to the cosmetics you frequently use and fix a metal panel on the wall. Now everything will be close at hand, and you won’t have to waste time looking for things all over your room.
Containers For Bits And Pieces
Put a cake pan in a drawer and store various items in each place. All your bits and pieces will never get lost in one colossal mass or disappear into nooks and crannies.
A Table For Ironing
Ironing boards invariably take up a lot of space. Replace yours with a tall, narrow table covered in the appropriate cloth. Its lower shelves can be used for storing various things, and more generally, it will look far more excellent than an ironing board folded up in the corner.
Boxes For Paper And Documents
It would be best if you got your hands on special boxes and files for different bits of paper (bills, letters, other essential documents) so that you can quickly find everything you need.
