For every minute spent in organizing...

1. Spend five minutes throwing out everything in your freezer that's expired or impossible to really identify.

"Uh, I think these are chicken breasts?" <--- you, discovering gross old things in your freezer. If you have a few minutes more, you can organize your stuff in bins.

2. Pick your messiest kitchen cabinet, and use inexpensive plastic bins as faux pull-out drawers.

This makes it super easy to grab what you need from the back of the cabinet. And if you're feeling extra motivated, you can make labels for each bin. From here.


7. Freeze old candles to get rid of the excess wax, then turn the empty jars into pretty containers for your vanity.

To keep the makeup brushes standing straight, you can use decorative filler from the craft store, or even whole coffee beans or dry white beans. See the full tutorial here.
