Sherry Tyra: We would all to be more organized in our daily lives. I am going to show you some great ways you can use repurposed goods to help make your clutter free.
Many of us have a tangled mess of computer wires. Toilet tissue rolls are a great way to organize all of those extra electrical and computer cords. For your desk one way to easily identify each of the cords is to use recycled britclips.
Label each with a marker and at a glance you can easily identify which cord goes to which item. These extra large paper clips are also a great way to keep loose computer cords organized and instantly handy.
The head of a push broom or scrub brush is a cute and clever way to organize art or office supplies. Repurposed CD racks make great holders for plastic storage container lids. They can easily fit in a kitchen drawer or sit on a cupboard shelf.
Linen closets can be an explosion of sheets in all sizes and shapes. By folding and storing your sheets in one of the pillow cases you not only keep the entire set together, you also instantly organize your linen closet.
Velcro or magnetic strips are a great way to store items on empty wall space. A magnetic strip can hold hair pins in a bathroom or loose paper clips in an office.
Keep the cleaning supplies you most commonly use in a large bucket. This way they are all together and could be easily carried from room to room.
It's easy to find inexpensive ways to organize your home. Be creative and find fun alternatives to expensive store bought storage items.
