    2. Store your most-used water bottles in repurposed magazine organizers.

    You can see them all at a glance, but they don't take up too much real estate on your pantry or cabinet shelves. See more of this organized storage closet on Driven by Decor.

    3. Help solve any allergy woes by cleaning all of the vents in your house at once — in the dishwasher.

    Allergies are actually worse this year, especially in the eastern US. Learn how to wash all your vents at once without messing them up on Design Dazzle.

    4. Stretch wire sheeting behind an old picture frame to use as a photo display and reminders board.
