The neat freak in you will cry tears of joy.

1. Apply adhesive stickers to all three corners of the file holder and stick it to the inside door of the cabinet under the sink.

Use this to hold onto cleaning supplies or kitchen tools you use frequently. No worries! You can use removable ones like these for $3.04.


2. Use clear or wire file holders to house veggies that will otherwise run away from you.

Better than keeping them in those awful crinkly bags you buy them in. This concept helps maximize shelf space by vertically stacking food that would otherwise just roll around and get squished.

3. Stack file holders sideways for added shelf space in the fridge and/or freezer.

Noticed how wonderfully categorized this freezer is with the frozen fruit is separated from the meat and leftovers.

1. Turn a wooden file holder into a shelf by drilling it sideways into a corner wall.

Use your new makeshift shelves for magazines, remote controls, extra blankets, or knick knacks if you're tight on space and want some custom storage space.


1. Use adhesive stickers to hang a pretty magazine organizer on the side of your desk to organize your hair tools.

Wires are the bane of neatness. Can't live with them, can't live without them (unless you have an iPhone 7). Using the hanging rack, the wires will just drape so you don't have to worry about tangling or rolling them up.


2. Use another wooden file holder to hide away those ugly wires and cable boxes.

The office is no place for a stray wire. We don't allow any of that nonsense here.

Definitely choose a wood or cardboard holder for this particular trick — wood and cardboard won't interfere with your wifi signal much (if at all), but a metal organizer probably would slow down your Internet. Read more about it here.
