$1 Kitchen Wrap Holder


As found on Classy Clutter

I’m one of those people who store their kitchen wrap in a cupboard above my head, resulting in numerous head injuries over the years, and it’s about time I put a stop to that.

You can easily secure your kitchen wrap to the inside of a cupboard door or wall using a $1 magazine rack!

Magnetic Cookie Sheet Organizer


As found on The Crazy Craft Lady

Crazy Craft Lady has offered us two ways to use a magnetic cookie sheet to organize different products.

You can use this organizer to hold certain beauty products that you use daily or (our favorite) as a ‘command center’.

We think using the cookie sheet to stick notes, reminders, and love letters to it is a great idea.

DIY Blanket Storage Rope Basket


As found on I Heart Organizing

Wow, I love this rope basket! It’s incredible to see Jen turn a dollar store basket into a gorgeous, colorful, and stylish rope basket that looks stunning and is also practical!

Jen uses her basket to store a beautiful pom-pom blanket in her guest bedroom, and it pulls the room together.

I think this basket would look lovely in a bathroom too, holding plush rolled-up towels.

File Sorter Washcloth Organizer


As found on House Beautiful

This is such an inventive way of using a typical piece of office equipment to organize items in your home. You can use a simple dollar store file sorter to divide and hold washcloths, and it looks so tidy!

DIY Mason Jar Organizer


As found on The DIY Playbook

You can quickly source cheap mason jars for $1 and use command strips to stick them to your surface. Alternatively, if you want to create a more significant piece with a wooden backing, then this DIY is perfect.

Although the DIY itself requires a few tools and other bits and bobs, the outcome is really nice. However, as we said, if you want to keep it cheap and simple, then use mason jars and command strips.
