For many of us, organizing and finding space can often be a challenge. Especially, when it comes to our closets and dressers. This 16 second video from Klara Egilson is going to be a pretty great space saver. (It’s going to take a few more minutes than just rolling them all into a ball but I think it ultimately will save space and make finding matching ones easier.
The rolling method involves stretching the top of one sock and looping the other through, to keep pairs together. The downfall of this method is that they can stretch out and and come undone in the sock drawer. The folding method seems like it would keep them together better. I think the downfall is that this method only works with longer socks. Not the shorter ones and that is mostly what I have. Need more help organizing your clothes? Lifehacker has some great tips here.
How big is your house? My bestie just bought a new house in Queen Anne (Seattle). It is a gorgeous townhome that is straight out of an Ikea catalogue. I love it! The only downfall? It is pretty small. That’s how it is when you buy in the heart of the city. Good thing for them, and for everyone else in the same boat, there are great space saving hacks out there! Hacks like these ones from Diply.
Is your closet miniscule? Are you lacking in cabinet space? Or space in general in the kitchen? The bathroom? No worries, Mate. This roundup has something for everyone. Even the kids! My house is fairly large and yet I could still use a bunch of these (especially the kitchen ones!). Numbers 2, 3, and 12 are my favorites. Using the space behind the door is a great idea. It’s almost always wasted!
The magazine holder. That strange shaped box no one can quite figure out how to best use. Do you actually put your magazines in them? My magazines are always fanned out on the coffee table. Nothing to be embarrassed about here in my collection of years old People magazines. Maybe I should throw those in the recycling. This uniquely shaped container is actually a wonderful item that can be used to store so many things. Everything from toilet paper to canned goods to flip flops! Who knew? Not I!
One of my favorite ideas is to install one on the inside of a cupboard door and use it to store wraps such as tinfoil and plastic wrap. I also love the idea of placing a magazine holder in the corner of a room as a makeshift shelf. It looks great and cuts down on the small clutter items that tend to collect on table and desk tops.
How many pairs of shoes do you have? Too many to count? The shoe rack by our front door is filled to overflowing. The closets too. (I think my husband is more a fan of fancy footwear than I am!) Maybe it’s time for a new shoe rack. You too? Check out this one from Home Made Simple. Amy walks us through making a simple shoe rack out of PVC pipe that will sure to be a space saver.
Their aren’t a lot of materials needed for this DIY. I love to hear that! You need PVC pipe and PVC glue, some clamps, and spray paint. You should also find some gloves. That glue is strong and nobody wants to glue their fingers together. Pipe is pretty affordable and the hardware store will cut it for you (the pieces in the video are 10 inches long).
Once you have all your supplies you have to decide on your design, glue the pieces together, wait for the rack to dry, and then paint it. I think the inside and edges should be painted too to give it a more ‘finished’ look. This DIY peaked my interest and here are some other PVP pipe crafts that I found.

My shoes are currently on the floor of my closet. Some in boxes but most just haphazardly strewn about. I could really use some of these ideas and I’m sure my husband would appreciate the walking room. I like number 7 a lot. Number 1 too. Vintage boxes stacked haphazardly just looks amazing. The shoe ottoman is pretty great too. Which one is your favorite? All of them? Here are some more DIY shoe rack idea. (Some are duplicated but not all of them.)

Some of these ideas are great and others just aren’t for me. Number three would block the view of my yard and I wouldn’t be able to see the kids running around as I did the dishes. Also number four? Not my cup of tea. But I adore the bookcase stairs (number 5) and the under-the-bed storage makes my heart skip a beat (number 11). Love love love. I also really like number 14. Do you have a favorite? Have you tried any of these?

Number 12 would look amazing in our office. Bills, bills, bills. Everywhere I look bills are laying on the desk, chair, filing cabinet and floor. I think I will get the hubby to put that one up this weekend. Number 3 and number 9 are going into my kitchen as soon as I find a cute set of baskets to put in there. One can never have too much storage in the kitchen. I do love my kitchen gadgets! Don’t you?
