Measuring Equivalents and Utensils
That is immensely satisfying to look at, isn’t it?
Everything perfectly perfect in its right place with the right measures in organized fashion… it’s blissful. This lovely home organization hack came from the Tidbits From The Tremaynes blog, so check it out if you want to know how they pulled it off!
Clipboard inspiration & organization wall
Inspiration walls can be a fantastic DIY organization hack for creative minds out there - maybe they help with a project you’re working on, or just to get creatively unstuck at any given moment during the day! But of course, you can simply use to organize your week and set up visual reminders.
This idea is as simple as it looks:
Glue or nail the clipboards to the wall (strong adhesive tape is good too) and hang anything you love there! It could be:
- Work related art/inspiration
- Lists and goals
- Project ideas or details
- Grocery lists
- Upcoming birthdays
- Inspiration photos
- And so on!
We’ve all been there: scrambling mangled cables around and pulling in every direction to try figuring out where they’re coming from.
There are many ways you can tag cables, but this is arguably the easiest: simply write the source on a bread tag and boom, you’re done! Getting organized cables made easy.
But you could do the same with Washi Tape if you have some lying around…
Bedside pocket rack
Oh, how many nights have our cell phones and tablets spent on the floor?
It doesn’t matter how careful you are, there’s always a chance to get them scratched or worse, stepped on!
This bedside pocket rack is the perfect organization hack for small devices, magazines, books, and your glasses. It keeps them safe, takes virtually no space in the room, and it’s probably the most practical thing ever.
You can make one yourself by following this tutorial!
Cell phone Charging Station
Speaking of leaving the cell phone on the floor…
We know it has happened to you - the outlet was far away from any furniture and your cell phone had no choice but to rest on the floor while it waited for the full charge. This calls for a DIY hack solution!
This hack is simply an upcycled pet bottle that holds your phone safely on the outlet while it charges!
A very famous and ever so useful DIY organization hack is painting your keys with nail polish.
It’s easy and super quick - you can be as creative as you like! No time to lose? Just paint over and let it dry! But if you’re feeling crafty, you can do something like the image above: draw patterns, experiment with different colors, it’s up to you!
The key here (no pun intended) is to make them different, so you always know which you’re looking for at a glance!
Window Organization Rack
This is a great way to upcycle an old window pane - you don’t even have to paint it!
The worn vintage look could work wonders by itself, all you have to do is hang it on your bedroom or home office wall and use for stuff like:
- Displaying photos
- Inspirational thingys
- Paid and unpaid bills
- Basically anything on print!
