1) Quality Containers

You don’t need to spend a ton of money at Target on cute gold wire organizers. They sell them at the dollar store and look just as high quality as the ones you’d buy at Target. Use them for papers, mail, or to organize other documents.

2) Rectangular Bins

These wire bins are more utilitarian looking than the pretty gold ones. But they can be used for storing potatoes and onions on the counter or as hanging storage. Use self-adhesive hooks to hang your bins anywhere you need a little extra storage. Use the clothespin chalkboard labels to label your bins. They are perfect for storing keys and sunglasses near your door.

3) Adhesive Cork

Create a corkboard for just $2. All you need is a dollar store picture frame and some adhesive cork. Take the frame apart and take out the glass. Cover the cardboard piece from the inside of the frame with adhesive cork and place it back inside of the frame without the glass.

4) Ball Brand Mason Jars

Mason jars are great for organizing. And having the Ball brand on the jars gives them a vintage or rustic look. Fill them with Q-Tips or cotton balls and use them in the bathroom.

5) Plastic Bins

Keep your linen closets organized by tossing items in matching colored bins. They can be placed side by side or in cubby holes. The dollar store also has stackable plastic bins for more organization space. You can glue them together for more stability.

6) Small Clear Stackable Container

Something like this would run you at least $5 or $6 at a craft store. But they are now carried at the Dollar Tree. Combine with some letter stickers if you don’t have a label maker. Use them to organize your craft drawers or in the kitchen for seasoning packets and recipes.

7) Pop Up Hamper

Pop up hampers are great for when you’re traveling out of town. You can just toss it in the washing machine when you get home after use. They’re also great for bringing toys to the beach. It makes shaking all the sand out a breeze.

Tackle boxes are also great to take on vacation. Whether you’re doing some fishing or need a place to put your jewelry. Either way, these dollar store boxes will keep things together and organized.

9) Pool Noodles

There are endless uses for pool noodles. Like keeping your boots from flopping over in the closet. You can also cut a piece and put it over a hanger to prevent creases in your pants.

10) Cake Containers

Going on a picnic? Toss your plates, napkins, and cutlery inside of cake containers for easy transporting and clean up. And you can also use them to, obviously, transport food.

11) Foam Board and Contact Paper

Use pieces of foam board and cover it with contact paper. Place the pieces on the inside of your cabinets to hide your wire shelving and make it look more high end.
