Great Ideas for an Organized New Year

The new year is a great time to clear out clutter and get organized. I'm always looking for new ideas to help get things organized and last week I received an email from my mother-in-law that was full of great ideas. I decided to share a few of my favorites.

Use straws to hull out berries.
Hang a strip of Velcro on the wall to organize stuffed animals.
Use a stocking on the end of vacuum hose to find small lost items like earring backs.
Use wire to create a place to store wrapping paper on the ceiling of a closet rather than on the floor!

Mount a tension rod under the sink and use hang spray bottles.
Use shower caps to cover shoes while traveling to keep your clothes from getting dirty.
Store sheet sets inside their pillow cases to save time searching for matching pieces.
Use baby powder to easily get sand off of your skin.
Attach rain gutters to the side of a building or on a fence and use to plant vegetables.
Cut X's into a box lid to create an instant cupcake carrier.
Use a rubber band to secure a sliced apple together to help prevent browning in your lunch box.
Use old baby wipe containers to store plastic bags. This is a great idea for pet owners!
Use bread tabs to organize and label power cords.
I will soon be implementing several of these ideas in my own home.

Happy organizing!
