20 Dollar Store Organization Hacks & Ideas
hey it's Megan welcome back this video is all about $1 storage and
hacksi legit use in my own house so I really hope this helps you or somebody else out so
DollarTree sells these ring phone holders which work great on your phone by the way but there's so many uses for these things so a few months ago when I first found them snatch them up put them on the remotes in our bedroom using command hooks and then I've actually done this in the kids room the living room and the guest room it's just a really great way to kind of like
storethe remote so they don't get lost next these cabinet shelves which are always a win really from
DollarTree to organize your cabinets but they're also great for wall storage so if you just bend the legs up just a little bit and then using one of the hanging tool kits also from
DollarTree put two little hooks at the top of your cabinet shelf hang it on the wall and then this makes a great way to
storea gift wrap or contact paper and as you can see you can
storea lot of it too and then the little legs at the bottom you can hang your bag and I like to save my scraps like ribbon and portal to decorate my gifts and make them a little bit more snazzy
DollarTree sells labels which are always great and then these Universal tool hooks are the most underrated
DollarTree storage item in my personal opinion you can bend the little hooks how you want them and they actually hold a lot of weight and...
these are great paired with like zip ties so what I do is I hang dirt Devils all the brooms and the mops and all the holes don't always match up well the dirt Devils didn't have holes begin with but with the zip ties and twine you can hang whatever you want and like I said to vacuums that's what it's holding it holds a decent amount of weight I also use these in the garage for shovels and extension cords they're just great all the way around back to the
DollarTree ring phone holders if you snatch up one of these and snatch up one of the basic old trash cans put it on the back you can use this to
storecleaning or anything else for additional storage I just put a little nail in the side of my wall put a little label on there that says trash bags and if you guessed I put trash bags in there well you are correct my friend and this works out great like seriously so it holds a decent amount of weight so I have two full trash bags in here and I've had this up for a few months now it's worked out great the trashcan itself has a low profile and the hooks hold a decent amount of weight I don't know exactly how much they hold but more than like
dollartrees basic little command hooks would hold and this is also great for toy storage so I have this up in the kids playroom and by the way to prevent from putting a bunch of holes in my wall Home Depot sells $0.98 wood it's 8 feet long they'll cut it down for you and that's what I have these bins...
hooked to I just spray painted it black
DollarGeneral also sells a bunch of great $1.00 items like these hooks and then walmart has dowel rods for a
dollaror less the second to largest size is 5/8 of an inch and it's only 97 cents and then walmart sells spray paint for 98 cents spray paint your rods and your hooks black or you could omit that step totally like personal preference there
DollarTree also sells these hooks they're in the garden section you get two for a
dollarand these fit perfectly on the rod so this makes some really great very inexpensive vertical storage these binder rings also from
DollarTree and then a flowers and garden ttyn also from
DollarTree optional spray-painted white I spray-painted mine white I use some more of those phone rings clip the binder rings to it and then just to cover up the flowers and garden area like regular old black poster board and wrote the word coloring on there and see this fits like perfectly so I'm using this for the kids storage like crafts and crayons but this will work great for craft storage cleaning storage kitchen storage and these at three little cups are also from the
DollarTree in the office section and they fit in here like perfectly this whole little area right here actually interning out way better than I expected and it's very functional another idea is to take one of
dollartrees trash baskets which hey by the way I just bought this maybe like a week ago they're definitely smaller than...
they used to be anyways take the trash basket and like fish and weave the hook through there and then that's another way to give you some more vertical storage so obviously I'm putting paper towels in here because I always think that's a great idea to have for like a kid's playroom and then this is right above the trash can toy storage so it's cute enough but it's definitely 100% functional and then another idea or tip is if you have kids or you guys like playing puzzles like puzzle boxes are the worst ever so what I do is I cut off the front of the box and put the puzzle in a hefty bag I think I'm super smart for that like that's like I've been a life changer for me personally and by the way this big pie wood piece that I'm using it's only 13
dollars it is four feet by eight feet Home Depot will cut it down for you and actually I didn't have to buy a new one I'm actually reusing what I have left over from this horse DIY another great
DollarTree are these plastic clear containers I like that these are plastic for the kids playroom so if they drop them they're not gonna break I bet I can these be great for like crafting too and we're on to another hack or idea so these paper towel holders from
DollarTree have a million in five purposes take your hand slightly push it upwards more of the hanging tool set hang it on your wall and this is great for a wreath storage I mean really it's great...
for a bunch of different things but you can
storefive to seven wreaths or many more wreath forms I also use out in the garage for seasonal outdoor wreaths storage and then here's another idea so if you have like spices everywhere taking up bottom cabinet space snatch up some taller trees command hooks put two of these on your wall once again slightly facing upwards and this really works out great for spice storage and
organizationand it frees up the bottom of your cabinet space I actually need to go back and get one more paper towel holder but my
DollarTree has been out of paper towel holders which is so crazy strained it's weird like in the comments always read like my
DollarTree never carries that mine has a hard time stocking up on paper towel holders because I've been waiting about two months now and they still haven't got any in okay and then on to the next one I don't think it's any secret that
DollarTree has a million and five storage bins to choose from that are great for pantry storage but it can be hard to find the style or color that you want or all of them in the same color so just know that rust-oleum makes spray paint that bonds to plastic now you don't want to use this on anything has direct contact with food and to get the best hold scrub down your bins before spraying them let it dry for 24 hours before touching them I did spray paint the top of the lids protected the bottom part and then when that dried I went back and...
scrubbed the bottom part again is that makes sense another idea for pantry storage using velcro and labels so velcro hoe if you have like bins in your pantry has been a lifesaver for me so like the very bottom cabinet is where I keep the kids snacks and foods and breakfasts and they were always like pushing the bins around and get knocked over but if you put velcro on the bottom you know it stays in place but then you can still remove it to clean out the bin if you need to and I think it's pretty obvious why
dollartrees labels are awesome I mean I don't need to label my pantry I know what chips look like and I know where they go but it really helps out with the humans who live with me so they put the groceries back where they belong and then there's no excuse saying I didn't know where that way my family doesn't sound that way I don't know I just did that but I mean I think you get what I'm saying okay so the beginning of this month I saw this fridge a soda-can storage totally stoked about it I like how it's like slanting going down did you see what I was talking about there I traded my old hand bins out for these and I like these better because now I can fit four spaces so I can have my tuna my tomatoes beans and my soup I mean that's all I were like carrying cans highly recommend these for soda storage you can only
storelike six really so yeah I totally think these work out great for cans storage another great item
DollarTree are these...
heavy-duty suction cups I used these bad boys all Christmas long outside on my windows to hold up my wreath and they never fell down never had an issue with them they're great in the sink too if you use one of these other little container storages from
DollarTree and then if you don't want your basket going anywhere and just use some zip ties make sure your sink is like dry and clean and I'm telling you it's not going anywhere so when we demonstrate that you can pull on it and it's legit gonna stay in your sink okay
DollarTree sells this dry erase contact paper for only a
dollarit's 14 by 18 inches and I put it on my refrigerator because I want a dry erase board on my refrigerator that's not gonna slide off because it's magnetic but to show you the difference so
DollarTree does sell a magnetic board but it's a lot smaller so here's
dollartrees and then there's my huge
DollarGeneral dry erase board now another idea is
DollarTree sells clear contact paper and this is a free printable I made but I'll have it linked below if you're interested just a very basic says grocery list with lines a great idea that I had or I think it's a great idea anyways is to cut this in half just use plain old scotch tape or scotch tape to put the paper back together I'm so sorry stumbling on my words here I taped it on the side of a cabinet that's in between my refrigerator and my pantry where the guests...
won't see put the contact paper on there and it's gonna work like a dry erase board I mean really any contact paper would work and then I just have a little dry rice pen with a command hook and see you can ride up perfectly and these are not my hairy hands that was my husband and then it erases just fine what I was doing was taking a picture of my list before I go to the
storebut then my family would still send me about like 50 text messages to get stuff so now they can write on there and I can get all at once to the very last DIY storage which I'm in love with these candle ring holders and then you could use a bamboo board that I'm using the very last piece of my DIY horse picture would I have left over and you're just gonna glue your napkin holders down to your board and then another one of these flower and garden tones and more phone ring hubs I told y'all I'm loving these things there's so many uses for them just mark off where you want your tend to go and then another great thing to add to this is more of the basic goal command straps from
DollarTree I like to cut the bottom off because I don't know it makes it look more clean and nice in my personal opinion and this is what we have so far now here's where I'm super proud of myself so one of these napkin holders from
DollarTree and more of our tool hanging hit also from
DollarTree we're going to use three of the little hanging hooks and connect the napkin holder to the...
board and once again you can use you know
