A solution to this problem is making sure you have storage containers within storage containers. Give everything a designated place. If you have a large closet, put baskets on shelves so you can assign belts, hats or shoes to a specific basket, for example. For an office space, instead of dropping push pins, paper clips, sticky notes and extra staples all in one drawer, use upcycled egg cartons or muffin tins to organize these smaller items before placing in a drawer. Storage within storage will not only help keep clutter out of sight, but it will also ensure items will be in the same place every time you go to reach for them.
1. Display nail polish in a spice rack.
Store your collection of colorful nail polishes somewhere they can shine.
A basic spice rack is perfect for lining up your bottles of polish in neat rows so you can see all the different shades at once.
2. Store toiletries in an old pencil box.
Courtesy of bulk packaging and tempting sales, we’ve all got an extra stick of deodorant or tube of toothpaste (or maybe two or three) cluttering our medicine cabinets and drawers.
Instead of letting these items float around willy-nilly in your baskets and bins (the horror!), store them in a designated box you can hide out of sight.
An old pencil case — plastic, metal, or lined in cheetah print — does the trick.
