1. Keep the makeup in your purse all in one place with an old glasses case.

This way, the bristles on your brushes won't get smushed, like they might if you just used a bag. And if you already have an old glasses case, you don't have to buy a small bag! From here.


4. Build a simple shelf out of crates to keep the dirt from shoes out of the rest of your house.

You and anyone else you live with only needs to keep their most-worn shoes here, but if you have a rack right by your door, it can help reduce allergens in your home. Here's how to build this one.

5. If you're a quilter or like to sew, store your fabric collection in wall-mounted magazine holders.

It's pretty wall decoration, and you can see your full collection all at once. Read more about it here.

7. Turn the corner of an envelope into a cute bookmark that won't damage the spine of your favorite reads.
