A lot of videos about cleaning and organization are becoming much more famous and we all know why.

Admit it, these videos are really satisfying.

There’s just something about organized shelves and creative storage that makes us happy.

And to make your day, here are some small projects you can do to keep your house organized.

What can you use it for if it says “drawer organizer” on the label?

Shelves and drawers, of course! But what house item has those besides your desk and wardrobe? The refrigerator!

Storing bottles and cases is much easier now! You can store soda cans without them rolling over. You can keep your produce without them mixing together.

Lazy Susans are not just for making cakes.

You can use this for storage especially when you have deep kitchen cupboards. Glue some jars onto a small chopping board and screw it down onto the Lazy Susan.

Now you have a utensil container that you can spin to get what you need.

You can also use it for bigger items like jars and containers and store them on deep shelves. Say goodbye to digging through the items.

Wood is such a beautiful material to work with.

You can cut two planks of wood to match the width of your stovetop.

Screw or nail them together and you’ll get a shelf you could easily position on your stove’s console.

You can also use old window shutters for hallway shelves.

Repaint the shutters and screw planks of wood on top and under the base.

It will definitely give your house that charming rustic look.

You can also use old fruit crates as shelves. You can either glue or screw the sides of the crates so it can make a two-level shelf.

You can add more crates for height and more storage space.

If you have an old dresser, don’t throw it away so quickly.

As they say, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. If one of the drawers is still in good shape, switch it to the topmost level then remove the rest.

Then, install new shelves on the levels without the drawers.

The wide space is perfect for pots and pans and other big kitchen items.

Much like organizers, some things can be used creatively.

One such thing is the telescopic curtain rod. The best thing about these rods is that they are highly adjustable.

You can use them in your closet as an extra hanging area.

Besides that, you can use it in your sink cupboard to hang all of your spray bottles.

You can also use the smaller ones to make partitions for your serving plates, pot covers, and baking trays.

Lastly, the sides of your refrigerator aren’t for souvenir magnets only.

You can buy a set of magnets at your local dollar or school supplies store and glue them under small bottles.
