In my latest blog, I am happy to have found some even more fantastic storage solutions that won't cost the earth.
These ideas will help you to keep your home well organised and all your things easy to use and store. The trick to staying clutter-free is making sure that everything has its place but is not so sophisticated that you need a diagram just to remember where you put it! It has to make sense to you, even if it isn't blindingly obvious to anyone else. Try some of these great ideas or let them inspire you to come up with your own versions:
With a magnet strip on the wall, your kitchen knives are always at hand and safe away from little fingers.
You can also hang your cleaning sprays on a rod in the sink cabinet. That way there is space on the bottom for other supplies.
Put a Lazy Susan in the fridge and never have mouldy mustard again, or use one in your medicine cabinet, for cleaning products or to reach any inaccessible items.
This is how you’ll know what clothes you don’t need anymore: hang all your clothes on hangers and turn them to the back. If you wear a piece of clothing, simply turn the hanger back forwards. Any article that is on a hanger pointing backwards after a year is something you probably no longer need.
A cereal container with a sealable lid works perfectly as a rubbish bin for your car.
Tweezers, nail clippers, etc. can be stored conveniently with little magnets on the walls of your bathroom cabinet.
Now you can always find the right lid for your pots with this newspaper rack.
Adjustable curtain rods can help to keep an orderly cupboard.
An old window shutter functions perfectly as a decorative magazine holder.
If you put your laundry machines on top of a shelf like this, there is space for the laundry baskets.
And never again will you search desperately for hairbands or bracelets. Just stick them on a bottle and they’ll always be handy.
