    13 Organization Ideas That Every Neat Freak Will Love

    File holders, ice cube trays, and muffin tins can all help organize your home.

    1. Slip your cleaning supplies into the pockets of a shoe organizer.

    An over-the-door shoe organizer can hold all of your sprays, wipes, and scrubbing brushes. You can also stick rolls of toilet paper or paper towel in a hanging organizer so they aren't filling up your cupboards.

    2. Make your kitchen cabinets way more space efficient with file holders.

    Paper goods, food wraps, cleaning supplies, and even produce can be filed away to use up vertical space in your cabinets!

    3. Stick Command hooks on your kitchen appliances so you can neatly roll up their cords when they're not in use.

    This is an especially great hack if you leave the appliances out on the counter, you don't want ugly wires hanging out all over the place.

    4. Hang your cooking utensils from a rotating rack.

    All you need is Lazy Susan hardware, a scrap piece of wood, and some c-hooks!

    5. Hook your purses on a towel rod.

    Rows of hooks aren't great for bucket bags and massive totes. Slide the s-hooks across the bar to space the purses out.

    6. Attach wheels to a long bin to take advantage of all that storage space under the bed.

    Especially if the length of your bed is against the wall, it's pretty easy to lose track of anything you try to hide behind the bedskirt. Make four of these rolling bins and you'll basically have a second armoire.

    7. Sort your clothing into canvas bags so laundry day isn't as much of a hassle.

    And sort your socks into a garment bag so they never lose their pairs. No more sorting through piles of smelly laundry! Just dump the bag into the wash, squirt in some detergent, and go about your day.

    8. Transform your cluttered garage into a pegboard paradise.

    Navigating a cluttered garage is so aggravating after a long week. Use a shoe rack and a pallet to organize anything that can't hang on the wall or fit in a basket.

    9. Make a jewelry organizer out of a cork board so it can grow as your collection does.

    If your jewelry set is always growing and getting tangled in boxes or drawers, this tip is for you. Move around the pins according to your needs and hang a new cork board if the first one gets a little full.

    10. Corral your bathroom counter in a tiered fruit stand.

    Not only does this look a whole lot neater, it'll also make cleaning the bathroom easier! When it's time to wipe down the counter (which you should be doing about once a week btw), just pick up the basket to clean underneath it.

    11. Sort small items like cords or clips into an old muffin tin.

    So much of the stuff in your recycling bin — egg crates, tissue boxes, sauce jars, etc. — can also be turned into organizers!

    12. Hang shower caddies from hooks in the shower so everyone has a space for their products.

    Though these normal adhesive hooks held up, you may want to try a set of water-resistant hooks, instead.

    13. And sit your lipsticks in ice cube trays so you can see your entire collection.

    Get another tray for your eyeshadow pots!
