Let’s be honest: there’s never enough storage space in our homes. But store-bought bookshelves are often too big, too heavy, and too expensive, not to mention space-consuming.

With this tutorial by School of Decorating, you can make good use of a free wall space in your house and make shelves out of stair treads, for a clever and budget-friendly solution.

This idea couldn’t be simpler, but it can make your life so much easier! Stop the cable searching madness by placing binder clips on your nightstand, office table, and any other places to keep cables secured in place so you never have to waste more time reaching down to grab them (or untangling them from other cords and wires).

Organizing Your Spices

Keeping spices in a neat place is always tricky: many will be forgotten or hard to reach if kept inside a kitchen cabinet. Magnetizing them is expensive and they can be an eyesore if kept in an open space.

As a solution, this idea by Claire is very creative: using a shower caddy to store spices! It's an insanely simple solution to an annoying problem. There are many different sizes and models for you to pick from, and you can hang it inside the door of a cupboard to keep them hidden, but still handy and easy to find the one you want.

Smaller items are very easy to lose, giving you unnecessary headaches and stress, but if they’re left on a table they’ll instantly make the space look cluttered and unorganized. You can easily solve this problem by coming up with a catch-all tray!

This beautiful leather tray above only requires a few supplies, and it’s very easy to make. Check out the detailed tutorial here!

Chaos under your sink? Instead of wasting time trying to find the right cleaner in a crowd of spray bottles, install a curtain rod across the cabinet to keep them all visible and handy. Now you also have some free space for other bathroom or kitchen essentials!

Any heavy-duty tension rod should work, but a screw-mounted option is best if you have many (or particularly heavy) bottles.
