Do you want to get organized and start the year off with a clean slate? Well, look no further. I have some great DIY Home Hacks that will help you do just that! The best part about these home hacks is that they are budget friendly and so simple anyone can do it!
Dreaded Dresser Drawers-Dresser drawers especially socks, under garments and t-shirts always seem to find themselves in pure chaos. I’ve got
a great solution for you! It worked for me so I’m sure will work for you. Here is Home Hack number one to reclaim your dresser drawers and start
the New Year off on the right foot! Use PVC pipe to create storage units for drawers and closet to keep your shoes, undergarments, socks, t-shirts and
anything else that will fit in them in a neat orderly fashion. You can also use PVC pipe to hold your shoes or to keep your office supplies organized!
Clean Up Your Clothing and Closet-We are all guilty of holding onto clothing that we no longer wear because we think we will wear
someday soon. The fact of the matter is that if you have not worn it in the last six months you most likely will not wear again. Rather than hold
onto things that you really don’t need I have the perfect Home Hack to help you make room for something new and retire the rest to a new home by
donating your old clothing to your charity of choice. Here’s Home Hack number two. Hang all of your clothing hangers in your closet backwards.
As you wear an item replace it on the hanger the correct way. Every six months remove any items hung backwards and donate them. I promise, if you have not
touched it in 6 months you are not going to wear it and it is just taking up space. It does the heart good to donate. You can also take your items to a
consignment shop so you can earn some money for your unwanted clothing.
Disheveled Linen Closet– Sheet sets have a way of separating themselves from their mates just like socks. I don’t know about you but it was
always a source of frustration for me trying to maintain my linen closet and keep things together and organized until I thought of a creative way to
solve the problem. Here is Home Hack number three. It is so simple and it works! You are going to love it! All you have to do is store your sheets
inside their matching pillowcase to keep everything neat and organized as a set and to save space at the same time!
Simplified Desk Drawers-Part of what makes us most productive in life and at work is having a little organization. It all starts with your desk and
desk drawers. It is really easy for your desk drawers to become a junk drawer and we don’t want that. Here is Home Hack number four to help you
start your year off headed straight toward success. And you can start by creating an orderly and efficient desk! Use old ice trays, boxes or silverware
trays to line the inside of your desk drawers and create compartments to keep all your office supplies neat and organized!
