Maintaining an organized life is one we implore our followers and clients to adhere to. However, we’re well aware of the fact that this can come with a costly price tag if you don’t throw a little thrift into it! So, without further ado, here are some tips and hacks on how you can begin organizing on a budget!
1. Drawer organizers are a must for all of those random yet necessary items. Whether it be your nightstand or jewelry drawer, cutlery trays are fabulous for organizing all your essential items. Don’t settle on costly acrylic organizers when a plastic tray from the dollar store can do the same thing.
2.Cookie and muffin trays, cutting boards and serving trays are always better organized vertically to save on kitchen space. Specialty organizing sorters for these items can run up to $15.00. However, a file holder carries out the same purpose and can be purchased for half the price on Amazon.
3.Being a homeowner and having tools can be synonymous. Although there are numerous options for tool benches and hardware storage, a pegboard and old jars can be a game changer for your tool collection. Great for garages or storage rooms, pegboards are easy to install and the glass jars are perfect for categorizing screws, nuts, and bolts.
4.Reusable cloth bags are often distributed at retail chains. Instead of letting them accumulate in your closet, repurpose them into activity bags. If you have children with multiple extra curricular programs, these totes are great in lieu of one gym bag. You might want to consider using them for organizing your hobbies as well. Knitting, crafting, and scrap booking are just a few activities that can be contained and transferable in these convenient catch-all bags.
5.Although custom shelving is often our preference, it’s not necessarily the most affordable. Hanging shelves are quick, cost effective and can carry out the same purpose. Solution Stores, Bed Bath and Beyond and Walmart all carry variations of this product.
There are always alternatives when it comes to organizing on a budget, it just takes a little ingenuity. For more hacks and tips, visit our “on a budget” Pinterest Board.
