you can get organized without breaking the bank there's a lot to cover so let's jump right in I wanted to get started with some offseason storage and these large Ziploc type bags that I purchased from the

Dollar

Tree

as you can see the zip seals tightly and the bags are made of a sturdy plastic I purchased both the extra-large which comes two bags to a box and the extra extra-large which comes one bag to a box the double x bag easily fit my large 22 entries it could also easily fit two 16-inch pillows however for ease of storage I chose to use the smaller bags and put one pillow in each bag also the handle at the top of the bag allows you to easily insert a hanger so that you can hang up your offseason item in the back of a closet and keep it safely

had this great little see-through tote that has a nice sized compartment in the middle and some pockets on the front then I can just zip it up and slip the handle over the hanger to

I do want to mention that if you want to use this for year-round multiple occasion wrap it would be best to invest in a better quality bag the

bag would work for all seasons but probably won't stand up to year-round use if you were planning this for a year-round option you could use the tote bag to

scissors tape and pens and place some thank-you and greeting cards in the pouch so you can have everything close at hand when needed for both seasonal and year-round gift bags

plate holders make great organizers you can sort by size and then

in a box or on the shelf to easily see your options but don't take that plate holder out of your closet yet because they also make great organizers for hats gloves scarves umbrellas flip-flops and flat sandals if you keep the bottom slot of the plate holder empty you can also stand it up vertically no shelf space no problem you can easily mount the holder to the wall with command hooks as shown then just add your items one of my favorite

either on the short or long sides to do this I attach a zip ties to the legs one at the top and one at the bottom and both in the front and in the back once secured I just go back and remove the tails of the zip ties as a topper I will be using this 8 by 24 inch ceramic tile that I purchased from Home Depot for $1 45 then I will be adding some e6000 glue to the wires and just put the tile right on top add some weights and let it sit overnight and the result is this beautiful window shelf next I'm going to connect the two racks along the long side to create a storage shelf for under my sink and again I am zip tying the legs top and bottom front and back for the shelf I will be using these love signs from the

Dollar

Tree

I'm going to go ahead remove the ribbon and the little galvanized heart and then I'm just going to add again some glue and then apply the shelfs and again we'll add some weight to the shelf while the glue is drying so this is the under sink area that I want to declutter so what I did was removed all the contents and then just add it my shelf you can see where that just doubled my surface space so I added all of my toilet paper underneath and then had plenty of space on top for additional items but now let's have a little fun with these racks and think a little outside of the box what would happen if we flip them upside down and hung them on the wall how about a towel rack like this or a small shelf unit like this to mount the racks to the...

wall I used these closet made brackets screws and anchors that I purchased from Lowe's for 3

dollar

s and 98 cents once I determine where I wanted the rack to hang on the wall I inserted a picture hanging nail so that would hold the rack in place I also added a level to the top to make sure the rack was straight then I place the brackets and marked where I needed to drill the holes I did this for both sides at the top of the racket once the top holes were drilled I inserted the anchors by tapping them in with a hammer I then loosely attached one side of the bracket to each of the outer holes I then attached the rack by securing the bracket underneath of the first rung once the top the rack was secured I placed the bottom brackets and again mark the drill holes and repeated the process to fully secure the rack to the wall I repeated the process for the second rack leaving enough space for one towel in between I then bent the legs of the racks slightly upwards so that they could hold the towels securely for the small shelf unit I again used the

Love sign removing the heart and ribbon for each shelf I will be gluing two of the love signs together with some e6000 this is just going to create a thicker shelf and a better looking final project then I just used some binder clips to hold the two signs together while the glue dried once the glue is dry I removed the binder clips and paint at the shelfs white on both sides for placement of the wire rack I measured in and...
marked six inches on both sides I then removed the little rubber feet from the legs of the rack and added some e6000 as well as some hot glue to the lake's I then lined the legs up with the marks I had made and held in place until the hot glue was set for the second shelf I again marked in from the edge six inches on each side but this time I drew a straight line down and then added some e6000 glue to the line I then flipped that shelf over and added it to the bottom legs of the rack I then applied some weight to the top and bottom shelves and allowed the glue to dry I hung the Shelf to the wall the same way I did the towel rack using the closetMaid brackets since it's so small this shelf works great in a bath to hold bath essentials another great bathroom option is this three-tier mesh organizer that's great for holding toys and other bath essentials and can hang from your shower curtain or towel rack to make this organizer I picked up a three count of the mesh bags a package of the shower curtain rings and then also some of these book rings all from the

Dollar

Tree

I then took four of the shower curtain rings and thread the clasp through one of the holes in the top of the first bag I repeated that for three more of the shower curtain rings across the top of the bag then I went to the bottom of that bag and attached the first bag to the second bag this time using the binder clips and again going through the holes in the mesh they use a total of four binder clips...
to go across to attach the two bags and then repeated that to attach the second bag to the third pack although it's great in the bath this organizer can be used in many other ways for example hang it off of a

over the door hook and you have a great place to

toys and stuffed animals clip the shower rings right to a closed rod and you have a great place to

store

underwear socks and other essentials but let's not leave the bath too fast here are a few quick tips to organize your bathroom cabinet for some on the door storage I use these acrylic cordial cups and some velcro fasteners just add the one side of the velcro to the back of the cup and then the other to your cabinet door also I'm using these compartments with lid I'm going to just remove the lid and just use the compartments by adding the compartments I was able to get more shelf space as well as organize some of the contents of the shelf by touching the acrylic cups to the back of the cabinet door I was able to get the toothbrushes off the counter as well as get some much-needed makeup storage space but for the ultimate and makeup storage check out this round multi-tiered rotating acrylic organizer made entirely from

Dollar

Tree

products this is actually from a previous DIY and I will link it here and in the description box but its small footprint circular design and rotating base our major space savers and enable you to utilize even tight small corners even on this very small dressing...
table it doesn't take up much space and gives you plenty of room for other items but of course one of the best ways to maximize surface space is to use the walls above here I created some makeup palette storage and display by hanging these

Dollar

Tree

napkin holders on the wall to hang I first placed one command hook in the middle top and then I went back and just secured and further supported with two more on the bottom another great option for organizing a small vanity space are these matching two tier shelf and cotton ball caddy made from

Dollar

Tree

napkin rings and 98 cent tile from Home Depot these are also from a previous DIY and I will provide a link to those as well as for the mirror which was purchased at Amazon talked about a small footprint this earrings display and organizer is only about two inches around at the base but it provides about 14 inches around of storage space and here's another displaying organizer made from acrylic frames to make the screen organizer I placed some filler in a

Dollar

Tree

BAE's in this case it was some northern beans I fill it about halfway up and then insert the handle of a

Dollar

Tree

spider screen into the base and then just filled around the handle with some more of the beans making sure to cover the handle fully with the filler other options for filler would include small pebbles sand or some other types of beans then just place the earring wires whoo the holes in the screens and this will also work with back to...
earrings as well to make the acrylic holders I use some of these acrylic picture frames from the

Dollar

Tree

as well as some

Dollar

Tree

head wraps I think just remove the paper insert as well as the plastic coating that protects the acrylic then I took a couple of the headbands and slid them over the frame to create the holders you can add as many holders as you need or adjust the height as required for these smaller frames like this 5x7 i used the smaller hair elastics to create the holders the hair elastics also work on the six by four frame a necklace and bracelet option would include using a 8 by 10 frame and then just applying some hooks to the top we've taken care of makeup and jewelry how about nails and hair to make the nail caddy I use two of these three compartment organizers and one of the shower caddies from the

Dollar

Tree

for this one I'm going to just remove the two bottom hooks because I would like to also be freestanding as well as hang on the wall and this way can stand up by itself without those hooks on the bottom and then I'm going to remove both the second and the third shelves with my wire cutters when I cut I'm trying to get in as close as possible to where the two pieces meet so I can get a cleanest cut as possible as some extra safety precaution I'm going to just tape over the little nubs then I'm going to take some e6000 and apply it to the wire of the top and bottom shelf then I'm going to attach the three compartment...
acrylic organizers one to the top shelf and one to the bottom shelf and then I'm going to place the entire unit on its slight incline to dry so that both the bottom and the sides have an opportunity to adhere and once dry it's ready to fill with all your nail polish and other manicure and pedicure items for the hair tools organizer I'm going to be using another one of the shower caddies as well as two of these long acrylic bins I'm also going to be using and over the door hanger and I'm going to put it on that second hook to give it a little bit more control I will also be using one of these pocket organizers from the school section of the

Dollar

Tree

I am again going to remove both the second and third shelfs from the caddy with my wire cutters and then again glue with the e6000 glue along the wire part of the first and fourth shelf and then add the acrylic pins to the top and bottom shelves was the glue on the shelves was dry I went ahead and added the pocket organizer to the bottom of the caddy I just slipped the two hooks at the bottom of the caddy through the two holes at the top of the organizer and then just pushed the hooks over to the side to secure it a little better and then I just filled with my favorite hair products and hair accessories for some clothing storage how about this under the bed and hanging containers for the under the bed storage I took a four of these collapsible storage containers from the

Dollar

Tree

these are the ones that...
are 4.7 inches high so they're kind of shorter ones and then I just unfold them and put in the bottom piece and then I took some binder clips and attached several of the containers together using the binder clips now originally I had planned on doing six but it turned out I could fit six under my bed there was a frame in the middle but just by putting Clips all around the edges you're able to do I was able to do four and you can see how they now just slide as one unit to make the hanging container I took two of these blue baskets a package of the shower curtain rings and also a package of these flexible hair rollers now they are do come in two different sizes you do want to get the longer ones then I just used the hair rollers to attach the two baskets all's I did was I took the hair roller and took one end and folded it around the bottom corner of the first basket and then did that all the way around then I took the other end of the roller and I attached it to the top of the second basket again just winding it around and attaching it I then took my curtain rings that I had already attached together and attach those to the middle of the top basket and then I just attached the top ring to the clothes rod in my closet next I have a couple of remote organizers one bedside and one so far arm to make the bedside organizer I took one of these dish drying mats as well as another one of these totes that I had used earlier with the gift wrap now in this case I'm going...
to be removing the zipper and the handles and all that top part of the tote bag then I'm going to flip my tote bag to the back because it's the back that I want to glue on to the mat so I'm going to just add a strip of hot glue to the bottom edge of the tote and then just flip it over and secure it to the bottom of the dish towel next I'm going to apply some hot glue along the side again on that black edging that is some hot hot glue and then again on the other side let's secure it down and then on the other side this time I think I did get it into the plastic didn't mean to do that should be just on the black part of your edging but it'll work just the same it was fine without you know getting it a little messed up and then I just flipped it over so that I can get that top edge there inside and then again just secure it it down and then I just took the material part and that went between the mattress and the bed spring and then my little bedside caddy was ready to fill with all of the things you want close at hand to make the sofa arm organizer and tray I did the same thing as before except this time I added eight of the

Dollar

Tree

wood rulers which I had removed all of the little black strips on and then I just took some hot glue and put it on the center strip that would be the top of a ruler if it was normally being used as a ruler and just put it on that top strip that sticks up a little bit and then attach that again to the material and then...
I continued there's that little hole that's there but I figured it would just make a cute little pattern instead of trying to fill it and so I just continue to do that alternating where the little hole is back and forth all the way up the side of the material and here's what it looks like when it's done ready to hold a drink and a treat and then also all of your remotes and earphones and other things this two-tiered bin can be used for so many purposes including for example to corral the never-ending supply of supplements that seem to get all over how about some glue and scissors and tape and then paints and paint brushes would be another great application and then also coffee and tea and if you want to get a little fancy you could also decorate them like I did here in a previous DIY which I will link here and below to make the basic bin I use two of these storage baskets some of these turkey grabbers that you can find in the kitchen section and then some zip ties first I attach the bottom of the turkey grabber to the bottom bin the larger bin and I do that by Counting four slots in on the bottom basket and then applying a zip tie to each side of the turkey holder then I take another zip tie and thread it through the corner and also the outside leg there of the turkey grabber on both sides of the basket I do keep all of the zip ties loose the bottom ones will stay loose until I attach the top bin to the turkey turkey grabber but I'm going to go ahead and...
tighten these top two zip ties on the side but I'm going to just leave those ones that are around the corner loose and but I'm going to pull the little naughty part through so that that piece is on the inside of the bin now I'm going to go back to the other side and do the same thing for slots in I'm going to add a sip tie to each side at the top of the turkey grabber then I'm going to go around the corner and apply a zip tie there and a zip tie there again keeping them loose except for the top ones I am going to pull those tight and then I'm going to just go back and remove all of the zip tie tails and then again just push those zip ties on the corners through so that the naughty part is on the inside then I'm going to go back with the top bin and that one is going to have the two Center slots are both going to get a zip tie and then I'm going to go back and tighten those two up then I'm going to go to the other side two Center slots again each receiving a zip tie which I will soon as I get both of them in also tighten and then I'm going to go in and just remove all the tips once the top piece is secure then I can go back and tighten the inside corners on the bottom bin I just need to have the top piece in place otherwise those bottom legs will pull under lastly I'm going to go back up to the upper bin and I'm going to just a thread another zip tie through this time horizontally through the slots and also across the top of the...
turkey grabber and this time I'm just going horizonte across the slots and I'm again going to pull that zip tie into the middle and then tighten and trim the ties and I bet you can think about some more

ideas

that you can use something like this for leave me a comment below and let me know what you think these could be used for since those storage bins come in a set of three I want to give you something else to do with the other two so I put together this a sponge caddy for under the sink for this one I again just removed shelves two and three with my wire cutters but this time instead of gluing the bends I'm going to zip tie them so from the back of the Caddy I'm going to thread a zip tie around the back wire of the caddy and through the first two slots of the bin then I'm going to repeat that on the other side and also for the bottom shelf so around the bottom wire through the two first slots and then zip tie that down and then repeat it on the other side and then that's ready to hang in film while we're down by the sink let's organize some of this clutter with a quick lazy susan to make the lazy susan i just used two

dollar

tree

cake pans and

Dollar

Tree

pizza pan added some e6000 to the cake pan let that dry Sennett it let it dry and then put on some weight when it was dry I added some marbles to the bottom pan and created a nice large lazy susan to use for all of my cleaning supplies finally I'm going to end with two quick caddies one...
a spice rack and the other for paper products the spice rack is basically the same as the hair caddy except without the green attachment so I'll be using the same bins and the wire caddy with the two middle pieces cut out then I'm going to glue the bins to the wire and when dry add the spices of these

Dollar

Tree

spices fit perfectly in the bin five across and so if you don't have ready some spices and you want to get these they'll fit perfectly and make a lovely display to make the baggie and wrap holder I'm going to again use the shower caddy from the

Dollar

Tree

and this time I'm just going to be removing the third shelf and when you do that you'll see that it makes a perfect holder for all of your food storage items and so if you wanted to do another side-by-side if you had enough space you might want to zip tie a couple of these caddies together to create one wide section you can even put that over the door on a over the door holder if you wanted to go down vertical you could zip tie one caddy to the other by just taking the top of one caddy and zip tying it to the bottom shelf I did use two zip ties for that and then it's good to go ready to be hung hey thanks so much for watching and we'll see you next time on fat tax where we're putting the extra an ordinary one DIY at a time
