You have to admit, there’s nothing quite like the feeling you get from a well-organized space. While you CAN spend a lot on organization, you don’t HAVE to spend a lot to keep your space in order. The dollar store has quite a few tools for organization, including a whole wall full of storage bins and baskets. You liked the ideas in our first organization roundup, so I have been collecting other frugal organizational ideas from readers and my other stops around the internet.
Painted Baking Pans for Storage: FREE and up
Even if you have to pick up a bottle of acrylic paint or a can of spray paint, this is a dandy idea for reusing old baking pans as storage. Or, you can pick up inexpensive baking pans at the dollar store or thrift store to make over! Such a pretty display. Great idea by Natalie Jost. [via]
Storage Cupboard: $32
Ali from Found in the “Ali” shows us how she organized all her art and design supplies for just $32 (that includes this awesome cabinet!). All her baskets came from the dollar store. [get the details]
Recycled Soap Box Organizer: FREE and up
Sarah at Stepping Thru Crazy made this desktop organizer from recycled bath soap containers! Find out how here.
Homeschooling Cupboard Organization (including zip-top bag organizers): $1
Lisa at Cheerios Underfoot (love that name! I so identify with that!) organized her homeschooling cupboard with dollar store stuff. I like this tip: take games out of their cardboard boxes, put all the game pieces, cards, and so on into labeled zip-top bags. Store game boards flat. Details here.
Bathroom Organization Bins: $2
Erin reorganized her bathroom storage with dollar store bins and added cute frames to label them This is a great detail that adds a touch of fun and whimsy to your storage. Details at Landsdowne Life.
Sew a Fabric Pocket for Bins: $1
Ribbon-Embellished Bin: $2
Marie at Make and Takes embellished a plastic bin with some pretty ribbons. This is a good way to dress up those bins (especially if they’re going to be displayed prominently somewhere in the house!). The dollar store has these bins and often has a variety of ribbon. Get the info at M&T.
