The following is a guest post from regular contributor, Shannon at AKA Design.
Hi Organizing Junkies! Has your summer begun yet? We’re hanging in for the last week or so of homeschool and then it’s summa-time for my three littles. This week is also super special because our oldest little actually turns 13 – which I can hardly believe! Not so little anymore.
Anyway, this week I want to share 5 Organizing Ideas Under $25. These can all be found online and may just make your life easier. You know if you’re like me and you like easier. :)
1. Box Topper Lid $3.99 Each
Okay so this idea won’t necessarily organize per se. But if your kids are anything like mine, our cereal boxes look pretty ragged after they tear into them. With the box topper lid, things will look a lot tidier. And to me tidier = more organized-looking.
2. Door Rack Pantry Organizer $23.99
If you are blessed enough to have a pantry, this over the door rack may come in pretty handy to organize the smaller things that may get lost on bigger shelves. It could also be used in a closet for mitts and hats or flip flops too.
3. Over Cabinet Hair Dryer Holder $7.99
I don’t know about you, but my hair dryer is always getting buried beneath a pile of other hair accoutrements. Especially with my daughters using my stuff these days! This nifty dryer holder may just keep the blow dryer front and center.
4. Wire Plate Shelf $6.49
I have a couple of these – and they are amazeballs! Not a word? Oh. Well they are amazing. Really. You can use them for plates or bowls. Or even for oil and vinegar in the pantry like I showed you last week.
5. Tool Organizer Bar $22.98
How messy is your garage? Ours could certainly be better organized. One of these would be pretty helpful, don’t you think? Perhaps it would help avoid an embarrassing Three Stooges moment when you step on the rake!
Do you have any organizing ideas or products that you swear by? Please tell us all in the comments.
