Organizing your home does not have to mean buying storage boxes, bins, or racks where you can put all your stuff. Sometimes all you need is a little imagination and creativity to find different uses for things you already own. So before you head out to shop for whatever home organizing item you think you need, here are some items you may find at home that you can use on your next decluttering project.
Old coat racks
Coat racks can be useful in many ways. If you have an old one sitting at home and no longer being used for its original purpose, you may want to transform it into a jewelry holder. You can also use it to organize other accessories as well as scarves, belts, or bags.
If you have an extra bath or shower caddie, you can repurpose it to organize your laundry space. You can put your detergents and other laundry-related items on the caddy to keep your laundry area clutter-free. Bath caddies can also be useful in organizing your art and craft materials.
Contact lens cases
Use old or spare contact lens cases as a pill or medicine organizer. Instead of buying a travel pill organizer, you can use a contact lens case as a handy container for whatever medicines you need to carry around with you.
A napkin holder can also be useful in organizing bills or recipes. This keeps your current bills organized or helps you quickly find a recipe when you need it.
An old CD case can also be useful as recipe or to-do list stand or holder. Use one side as a base while the other side serves as the “stand” where you can stick your recipe or task list. This makes it easier for you to see what is on the list while you continue with whatever it is that you are doing.
Reuse old bookcase as a magazine rack or desk organizer. You can also use it as an active file storage where you can put papers or documents you are currently working on.
You can use old jars in many ways. Apart from reusing them in the kitchen as food or drink containers, you can also use them as pen holders, storage space for hair accessories, and so much more.
