There are, however, hundreds of videos available online where people show you the tricks they use.

Sometimes, those tricks and tips require you to pay a small fortune for fancy tote bins and wall accessories.

Luckily for us, someone from the popular Hometalk Youtube team compiled a video of some of the most popular, and affordable, hacks.

This video shows dozens of easy tips and hacks that use products from Dollar Tree stores to create the look.

The first hack in the video is possibly the simplest: buy a paper towel stand and sticky-backed wall hooks.

Place a wall hook beside your toilet, hand the paper towel holder off the hook, and load it up with toilet paper rolls.

This hack keeps your floors clean and keeps the extra rolls in a handy spot for when you need them most.

By purchasing metal napkin holders, wall hooks, and yarn, you can easily create little bookshelves or document holders.

Just wrap the yarn around the metal, use a hot glue gun to keep it in place, and hang it from the hook anywhere you want it; you could also leave it on a desk instead of hanging it and have a cute mail holder.

You can make your own Lazy Susan in just a few simple steps.

Buy two tins and some glass beads; put the beads into one of the pie tins and place the other one on top; the top tin should spin easily on top of the beads.

Hot glue and a paper towel holder with a few zip ties around it, and now you have a spinning lipstick holder.

Want a new jewelry box to display your beautiful rings?

Buy a wooden box (one with no top), some hair curlers, and some velvety fabric and you can make your own!

Cut the fabric so it can fit into the box, then hot glue it into place, take the sponge part off of some hair curlers and glue them into a row, cover that with more fabric, then slot them into the box, and voilà!
