5 Ways To Store Items Without Spending

25 July 2013

Have you ever been in the store Solutions? It is an organizer's orgasmic dream. With everything you need to get your house and life completely organized, it will only cost you thousands. At that price, I think I'll be having a garage sale and getting rid of it all. Instead, lets get you organized without spending more than a few dollars.

If you are a crafter, this idea is a delight. Store all of your yarn in coffee cans (above) and stick them to the wall so they are easily accessible. This also looks really pretty! Thanks to Leethal for the tutorial.

If you are more handy than crafty, check out this idea (above) from The Family Handyman, where he/she used a tie rack bought from a discount store to store tools. Awesome!

If you have 1000 purses like I do, this idea will change your life. Right now, my purses are thrown on a top shelf in my closet. Use curtain rods on your existing closet rod to hang them. Simply genius, Real Simple.

Use bread tags (above) to label your cords so you don't accidentally unplug the wrong cord at the wrong time. They all look the same!

I think this idea is my most favourite of all. Use a wine bottle(s) as a jewellery organizer (above). Not just the bottle, Miss Sophisticate used the corks too! It looks great and shows off what you care about most. The jewellery? No, the wine!

Bargainmoosers, do you have creative ideas for storing items in your home at a low cost? Tell me about it!

    I hung all my purses just like that a few months back.....the handles are ruined! They have a pointy tip and it can't be undone! Help...

      I would take the handle off the purse and lay it flat. then weigh it down with some books - really heavy books. Leave it there for a few months. If the weight of the purse on the handle pulled the handle into a point, than the weight of the books may be able to weight that point back out of your handles. I have used this method for straightening many things and on some things it worked well.. others it was never 100% restored. But it is worth a try I think.

        Thank you for replying! How do I take off the handles tho? Handles are sewn in, leather handles sewn onto a leather bag....really tough material!, and more importantly how do I put the handles back?

What do you think?
