    1. Make sure you're getting the most out of your fridge so your food lasts as long as possible.

    Pro tip: Your milk shouldn't be on the door shelf — you actually want it in the coldest part of your fridge. Also, make sure you're not storing your raw meat where it might contaminate anything else. From here.

    2. If your bras aren't already stored in a drawer, move them to one.

    It will help them last longer because their straps won't be stretched or twisted. And you'll actually be able to see them and pick the one you want to wear! From here and here.

    3. Pick one of your paper piles to sort through.

    Just one! Do everything you need to do with everything in that pile. And ta-da! Pile of crap = gone. Then if you're feeling extra ambitious (and need this much organization), try out this decor coach's multiple inbox system.

    4. Download Plant Nanny — an app that reminds you to drink water — and try it for a couple of days.

    You might be surprised at how much more energy you have if you stay ~hydrated~. Read BuzzFeed's review of the app here.

    5. If you have a Beauty Blender and are tired of it rolling all around your vanity, try storing it in an egg cup.

    Brilliant! See more of this pretty vanity here.

    6. Turn an old picture frame into a pretty dry-erase list.

    Use it for whatever you need — meal planning, grocery shopping, reminding your roommates that rent is due. Get the tutorial here.

    7. Cover your iPhone cord in pretty washi tape so you never mix it up with anyone else's cord again.

    Plus, why not make the simple thing you use every day a little prettier? From here.
