Nobody likes a messy home but very few are conscientious about tidying up the home consistently. You don’t need to spend a ton of money on expensive storage gizmos in order to keep your home clutter-free. There are many ingenious ideas online that make use of everyday items to store items in the closet, kitchen and bathroom. Take these ideas and expand on them to come up with your own storage solutions to fit your own requirements. De-cluttering your home has never been more fun!
For the closet
Clutch bag holder
Store clutch bags on a plates drying rack to retain their shape. This also allows you to view all your bags easily rather than having to rummage through them to get to the one that you want.

Shoe box separator
Rather than have them stack up in a corner of your home collecting dust, reuse your shoe boxes as separators in your closet drawers for a tidier wardrobe.

Stack them the right way
After folding your T-shirts, place them upright in the drawers so that you can have a clear view of everything. This method is useful for keeping any unnecessary mess to a minimum as you can easily remove the piece that you want without unraveling other items.
Make full use of the door
Do not waste any space! There are easy ways to utilize the inside of your closet doors to store accessories, scarves and bags with the use of simple adhesive hooks that will not damage the door. You can do the same with any other door in the house and add extra storage space in the home.
For the kitchen
Head to your nearest Daiso and grab a few colorful bins for use in your refrigerator. These bins are perfect for separating your produce and other items in the fridge; you can also add labels to them for easy identification.
Gorgeous glass jars
What’s more therapeutic than opening the kitchen cabinet and being met with this view? Everything is in view and labeled; furthermore, the amount of each item is also exposed for added convenience.
Compact storage for cookbooks
All you need to have this installed are a rail hanger that you can buy from IKEA and a slim strip of wood that you should have painted to a color that matches your kitchen décor. Drill in a couple of corner braces under the wooden strip to strengthen the fixture and you have made your very own cookbook holder!
In the bathroom
Keep the toys tidy
This is a great way to have your children’s bath toys kept tidy without having to completely stow them away. As you add more toys to the collection, you can easily install more containers!
Do you find yourself having to buy 6-7 nail clippers a year because you keep losing the one you have? Or perhaps you go through numerous packs of hair clips because you simply cannot find the ones that you already own? Well, with this piece of magnetic strip, you will never lose them ever again. Have this placed in a dry area of the bathroom or in your dresser area for easy reach whenever you need the items.
Storing clean towels
Make use of the wall space in your bathroom to store fresh towels. One beautiful way to do so is with a wine rack that you can easily install on the wall. You can also have baskets hung up to store rolls of towels; a good place to have these towel baskets is above the toilet bowl to fully utilize the space.
