Hello friends! I hope that you had a wonderful Christmas filled with your favorite people! Now that Christmas is over, the weather has officially induced hibernation and the New Year is fast approaching, I’m re-focused on my organization projects! You’ve been hearing me talk about my mission to get organized in our “new” house for over a year now. I’m sure I can get an “amen” from you when I say that it can be incredibly hard to get organized when you work beyond full time and are recovering from LGHD (low grade hoarding disorder). Well ma friends, the mission ensues! Here are some of the projects that I’ve tackled thus far, and some of the next ones on my agenda. If your goals include getting organized I hope they will help you to get there with me!
25 Genius Organization Hacks
1. Declutter Calendar
I’ve utilized this calendar for several years. I wish I could say I follow it all the time, but even so it has helped me immensely in my quest to get (and stay) organized! I love the way Beth breaks daily declutter tasks down into bite sized pieces… its so very helpful for those of us that walk into a room to get started and don’t know where to start!
2. Craft Storage Labeling with a Cricut Machine
3. Organize Cords with Toilet Paper Rolls & Washi Tape
I love finding uses for all of my washi tape!
4. File Organization
Simply Fabulous Living
5. Bill Organization with Free Printables
6. Gift Wrap Organization with pot lid racks!
7. Organize Power Cords with Bread Tags
There’s nothing worse than playing the guessing game and pulling out plugs at random when you need to plug something else in!
8. Hardware Organization with Packing Tape
Ok, I take the above statement back. There is something worse… trying to find specific hardware that you put somewhere that made sense at the time and now you can’t find it!
9. Tupperware Lid Storage with CD Racks
A close runner up to numbers 7 & 8… opening a cabinet and having a pile of Tupperware lids fall down on me.
10. Pan Lid Organization
Another reason to love Command Hooks!
11. Organize Cutting Boards & Cookie Sheets with Tension Rods
12. Spray Bottle Storage
Under sink space is precious real estate, get it organized with another tension rod!
13. Book Storage with Picture Ledges
14. Hairstyling Tools Organization
Reason #479 why I love command hooks!
15. Drawer Organization that Doesn’t Slide Around
16. Label plastic drawers with adhesive vinyl for Medicine Cabinet Organization
17. Cake Stand for Bathroom Toiletries
I love when organization and decor combine!

A great post to start 2022 off with. Thank you for sharing.
I really struggle to try and organise as I live in a very small studio flat with not a lot of cupboard space what would you suggest ? Thanks
That does make it tough Beckii! When I had minimal cupboard space I moved things that I used less than once a month into a closet and went through the cabinets frequently to purge. Good luck!
You had me at our LGHD! Super cute blog can’t wait to read more XOXO
Lol! Yay Mallory, you get me! 😉 Thanks so much, have a great weekend! 😉 xo
These are such good ideas for organizing I wish I could be better at it ,but I struggle trying to organize because my other half doesn’t think it’s practical or useful and is a time/ money waster even if we are on a low budget.
It’s a constant struggle for me too Elizabeth! I’ve had the best success with just doing a little bit everyday and then it also feels less overwhelming.
Rena Hale says
I have an extra shower rack hanging in the back of my shower and i used a Command Strip to hang it there. It had been hanging there for two years now.
That’s a great idea Rena! Thanks for sharing! 🙂
Hi Rena! I love Command Strips… aren’t they a brilliant invention?!
Hi Lydi. Your ideas really inspired me. That’s one of my mission in 2017: to declutter and remain organised.
Thank you so much Annabella, it inspires me so much to know that I could inspire you! It’s my mission too, I’ve started going through the declutter calendar and it feels much more manageable to do a little every day. Thanks again and Happy 2017!
Where can I get calendar?
Hi Dawn! The link for the calendar is below the picture. Click on that and it will take you to the site to download the calendar. Happy New Year!
I love the “Cakestand Bathroom Organizer!!” But when I clink on the link there is only the same picture you posted and not what and how yo do this 🙁 Any ideas ? Thanks honey
Hi Al! The link is the site where I found the picture, it looks like a vintage cake stand so I’d suggest trying a vintage or thrift store to find one similar! Good luck and happy holidays! 🙂
I’m so glad I saw this on Pinterest. There’s a couple I’ve never seen before and I am going to use them soon. Thanks!

I am a mom of three and a DIY’er for more than a decade and I found this to be a veritable treasure trove of functionality! TY so very much! 🙂

Do the command strips hold up to water for the bath storage totes?
Hi Linda! Yes, they actually make command strips that are specifically for the bathroom and they really hold well!
