7 Ridiculously Easy Tricks That Will Make You So Much More Organized

So neat and so organized.

1. If you have a collection of individual eyeshadows, store them in ice cube trays.

2. And pick up a few more ice cube trays so you can freeze fresh herbs in olive oil to use the next time you cook.

Melt a cube of herby butter whenever you need to sauté veggies for a quick dinner, add to the middle of a roast chicken, or let thaw on a plate for dipping bread. And never waste a good bunch of herbs again. Read the full tutorial here.

3. Organize your laundry hampers vertically to save space in a small home or apartment.

4. Repurpose a kitchen utensil caddy as bathroom countertop organization.

In a multi-person bathroom, everyone could have their own cubby for their toothbrush and toothpaste...and everyone could be responsible for keeping their own cubby clean.

5. Hang an old curtain rod in your garage to store paper towels, duct and masking tape, garbage bags, and whatever else you have ~on a roll~.

6. Build or buy a skinny laundry room cart to slide in the nook between your washer and dryer.

Learn more about building one yourself here (which means you can customize it to whatever dimensions work for your space), or buy one for $24.95 here.

7. Stop kicking that giant computer charger brick around and make your cords so much neater by sticking it to the wall with a couple of command strips.
