These clever tips below will help you get and stay organized.

Putting a lazy susan in the corners of your pantry is a super fantastic way to not only utilize space but also be able to easily access each item! For instructions on how to do this head over to Decorchick.

Clean and Scentsible came up with a super cute idea for kids art work! Using a clipboard makes it so you can change them out as often as you’d like and the kiddos love it!

I love making cute labels for things…labels always help me organize and I love when they are stylish! Head over to That’s Mellifluous for directions on how to make your own!


Did you know that you can use those Over the door hanging shoe racks to store all kinds of things (other than shoes)!? I bet you may not have thought about that, but these work GREAT! You can store everything from your stock pile of ketchup to jewelry and make-up!

I am currently using a few around the house and this one is for my kitchen items. It’s currently holding honey, vitamins, apple butter and more.


You can use ice cube trays to store your jewelry….especially earrings! You can find these ice cube trays at the dollar store (and sometimes they even have 2 packs). Be sure to get the ones that stack on each other if you have a lot of jewelry you want to store.

This can be so much cheaper than buying a jewelry box (and in my opinion even organizes and stores them a little better.
