I think a big part of successful home organisation is being able to look past what an object is specifically designed for and see other possible uses. I really believe you don’t have to spend a lot of money on fancy tubs and personalised labels to organise a space. But you do need to find solutions that work for you and your space. I’ll be featuring some of my successful Organising hacks on the blog regularly. Hopefully they might inspire you to re-purpose something you’ve already got at home. Maybe you’d like to give a few of these a try.
Here are just a few organising hacks I have on the go around the house at the moment
This ceramic egg crate has been a great solution to keeping my small earrings together and easy to find.
I’ve seen egg crates similar to these in kitchen stores and more recently in ALDI. You could also get the same results using an ice cube tray.
Wrapping paper solution.
I love having a wide selection of wrapping paper on hand. I generally have a roll for boy’s birthdays, girl’s birthdays, babies, general birthday theme (for grown ups) and a few plain that can be used for any occasion. I keep these rolls tidy in our office in IKEA plastic bag holders.
You could easily mount these holders on the inside of a cupboard door too!
Delicates washing bags
I’m not sure what the correct name for these washing bags is! I’m talking about those laundry bags you use to put your delicate and sensitive items in the washing machine in. I keep ours hung on the wall in the laundry with these tea towel grips.
When I take them out of the machine I hang them straight back up here to dry (after I’ve taken the items out of course). You can find these grips in your supermarket and even hardware store.
