The dawn of a new year is as good a time as any to get the home organized and these do-it-yourself projects are fun, easy and helpful!
Here at Rustik Cottage we have a lot of scarves. We love the idea of having them all lined up in a row, but this easy DIY clothespin hanger would also be a great way to organize kitchen towels, favourite photos, bills that still need to be paid…
Jotting down notes on scraps of paper you can never find when you need them is so 2015. This wall-mounted craft paper roll will inspire creativity and organization, whether you buy it readymade or go for the crafty DIY version.
One of the most problematic areas in the home for clutter is the “landing strip” – that area right inside your front door. We love these creative problem-solving ideas: Pipes; branches; old keys; screwdrivers.
Keep plastic bags in their place and ready when you need one – it’s easy enough to make an organizer yourself, or choose one of these bright ones from Etsy.
Another easy way to keep the kitchen tidy is having the utensils you use frequently right at hand. Upcycle old tins by painting and labelling them for a quick and easy win that will make you feel more organized right away.
If counter space is limited in your kitchen, this vertical organizer is easy to make and would work on any available wall.
Mounted mason jars are another way to get organized in the kitchen, bathroom or office. This DIY uses hose clamps to mount the jars to a piece of wood.
Use an old flower pot filled with sand to keep garden tools together and make sure they are sharp and ready for action come spring!
With so many devices to be charged, you may be drowning in cords and cables. Tuck them away neatly by creating a charging station in your bedside drawer.
Not quite a DIY, but if the sock drawer is your nemesis, Marie Kondo’s folding method might be just the answer.
