HOME ORGANIZATION SOLUTIONS WE USE DAILY

Jan 29, 2021 | Kitchen, Organization, Pantry | 8 comments

Today is all about my top home organization solutions that are tried and true.

I’m always looking for ways to make my life easier. Sometimes I’m looking for small changes and other times they are much much bigger. But I’ve found that it’s the little changes that have the greatest impact.

There are still many things that I need to find a solution for in my home. With each new dedicated project, I work hard at finding solutions to even the smallest annoyances. But, sometimes I happen upon a solution (or more like do way too much research to solve one little pain point) that sticks and works perfectly.

Today I am going to share some of those home organization solutions with you. I hope these help solve some problems for you as well!

1. Pull Down Spice Rack

I have always had a big selection of spices. I cook from scratch most days for my family of five, so my spice rack cabinet is a true work horse in my kitchen. I have always designated an entire cabinet (no matter how small) for spices in every home. Adding this pull down spice rack has has made it so much easier for this shortie to reach even the furthest back spices. No more knocking over all the spices in front to get to those in the back! Woohoo!

2. Inside Cabinet Storage

I added this DIY storage about a year ago and they are absolute perfection if you ask me! You can buy this type of storage here. But, since I enjoy making things, I crafted these babies in under an hour using scrap wood I already had. FREE solution…doesn’t get much better than that! Now my cutting boards and baking sheet liners are no longer taking up too much real estate in my cabinets and I have a much more organized lower cabinet.

3. Veggie Hanging Baskets

I’ve never had a designated place to store my most used dry staples – onions and potatoes of course. I used to just throw them in one bin, or they shared a bin with bread. So when I finally organized my pantry once and for all, I added these hanging baskets specifically for the onions and potatoes. Now I don’t have unhappy veggies sprouting roots too fast from being over crowded and it’s so easy to grab what I need.

4. Oversized Lazy Susans

I have two solutions from my pantry, because they are so good. These lazy susans are so simple, but were the perfect solution or the dead space in the corner of my pantry shelves. Now I can load these little ladies up and just spin to get what I need. They are the perfect solution for tight storage as well!

5. Junk Drawer Containers

I finally caved and upgraded my drawer containers to this modular storage system and I will say, they are worth the time. I mean no one likes to clean out the junk drawer. But hopefully, with this solution you won’t have to ever again…ok that’s definitely not realistic. But they will make it much easier to keep organized, so you won’t have to do it as often.

6. Tray for Mudroom Cubbies

These little trays have saved my sanity. I cannot tell you how many containers I have tried over the years for these cubbies. But stumbling upon these gems has made it so much easier to see what is in the cubby and keep it all organized and within reach.

7. Nail Polish Rack

I have a beloved Caboodle tote from the late 1980’s or early 1990’s. My brother got it for me for my birthday and I have used it ever since. It is specifically for nail polish storage and it works great (I so wish they still made it). But I simply had too much nail polish. So I found these awesome racks and hung them behind my closet door. Now all the girlies in the house know right where to get what they need and the Caboodle stores all the tools.

8. TV Cabinet Storage

This cabinet was originally for our electronics. But with smart TV’s we no longer needed that space and it quickly became the home for all my little ones arts supplies and small toy storage. It was over flowing with mess to the point that I finally broke down, cleaned it out, and figured out exactly what kind of storage was necessary for all the little things that she just HAD TO HAVE in there. Now it is a dream and with everything in its own storage solution, it’s super simple for her to grab what she wants without digging around and creating an even bigger mess.

Small Square Boxes | Large Boxes | Medium Latch Boxes | File Box

9. Charger Cord Holders

This is another one of those super simple solutions. Attach these holders anywhere you need to keep a cord within reach. I have them on all our night stands.

10. Vitamin Box

AKA a bread box turned vitamin storage. It is right in view, but hides the mess of vitamins we dip into several times a day. Also the addition of the vitamin sorting container has really cut down on time for grabbing what we need.

Well there you have it. My top ten home organization solutions that we can’t live without. Ok. That’s a little dramatic, but they really have made life simpler!
