2. Hang a spice rack on the inside of the cabinets under your sink to hold extra sponges and scrub brushes.

Sponges and brushes are lightweight, so you don't even have to get out your screwdriver and drill — removable adhesive strips will hold it fine. See more here. (P.S. If you love the cute sponge brush, it's $8.99 here.)

7. Choose one kind of clothing — like jeans, or t-shirts, or leggings — and ~KonMari~ it.

Theoretically you're supposed to do all of your clothes at the same time, but sometimes its easier to start with just one category.
