  1. I love the suggestions on this website! Many of which I have used over the years. I’m pretty good at keeping things organized. It’s the rest of the family who struggle. Lol. I especially liked the over the door deep pocket holder. Unfortunately the American Amazon is considerably cheaper than here in Canada.

  2. I feel like we’re really good at organizing except…..we’re not good about putting things back where they belong LOL Is there a product to help with that or ideas someone can share?

  3. I’ve had the hanging jewelry organizer for years. I love it. My mom bought me one Christmas one year . The store she bought it at went out business. I know she bought another one year for one of my sisters. I’ve had the makeup organizer for years. Probably at least 20., My brother had my name one year and his wife was working for Nuskin at the time. She also had some of the organizers with her and gave me some. This was before the organizers were easy to find. I won’t ever get rid of mine.

  4. I have something similar to your drawer bins and to stop the sliding, I put a piece of the rubber shelf liner under them and it worked almost perfectly! Only allows sliding if I slam the drawer to make my point, if you get my drift. Question…Jillee, are the tea organizers a good size and way to store my essential oils? I am wanting to sort of categorize them, if you will. Thanks and stay safe!! :-)

  5. I just started using a jewelry organizer. I have it hanging on a Command hook on the back of my bedroom door. Love it. So easy to see everything I still keep my best jewelry in a box, but for every day things this is great and I have it organized by color to make selection even easier.

  6. Sometimes you can get great deals at your local dollar store as well. I like that new over the door organizer. The biggest struggle I have with those is when doors close too snugly against the frame and you lack clearance to hang them. Then you have to drill in holes. They are a great way to take advantage of wasted space!

  7. I’m a quilter and having a sewing room full of stuff. I use a shoe organizer on the inside door of my room. It holds a ton!

  8. Unfortunately most of these items are no longer under $10. The ones I clicked on were all above $10. Still good ideas for organizing though.

  9. No comment option on the clothes pin page. I painted a pin to match my mail box. I have used this same pin for nearly 20 yrs. to hold my out going mail secure. Works great! For bag clips, I use the office type binder clips. They are available in various sizes, have a wide gripping surface and are very secure. They don’t slip off easily!

  10. LOVE LOVE LOVE this website . Lots of great ideas. I have used and made many of JIllies’ ideas.

    Jillie check out > SaicleHome Home Large-capacity Travel Organizer Storage Bag Portable Cosmetic Bag Makeup Storage Case Brand:SaicleHome for 4.99 and many colors to choose from. Look familiar?

    I use and give the craft organizer you show as an earring container. I found the best prices for the plastic containers at Harbor Freight which is a tool store so their container is advertised for nails and screws. But as a gift I paint a LARGE wooden letter (the first letter of the persons name) and glue it on the top.

  11. Wow, I did not know, nor think of some of these, nor how they could be used to help organize. Thank you.

  12. kitchen silver ware holders also work great for organizing drawers. Use them for brushes, combs, tooth paste, hair bands, make up etc.

  13. I had a bunch of those makeup organizes you showed, but ended up switching my makeup system – then I figured out those are PERFECT for storing smaller essential oil blends. Now I keep my most frequently used smell bottles in easy reach by my diffuser!

  14. I bought a crafting organizer that is large and deep. We use it for our first aid box.I am using a couple of the hanging 6 shelves for my sewing supplies of fabric.

  15. Thanks, Jillee! I just ordered the shoe bag and pants organizer! Have a great week!

  16. Instead of the defined-purpose velcro cord wraps, go find the gardening roll of velcro that’s designed for staking plants. The home stores have them in their gardening section when it’s open. The hold is somewhat lighter than the heavy-weight velcro and the roll is ginormous for the under $5 price. Cut them to length as your cord size dictates. It’s a GREAT savings and easier to use!

  17. My husband just purchased an organizer like the one you pictured to organize crafts. He’s using it to organize fishing tackle.

  18. I use the 5 line hanger for my table clothes and table runners. I got the kind that swing our so I just slide them on and off. I separate by lengths than Holliday’s and colors. My table has 3 leaves and opens to 120”. I than use the hanging shelves for my cloth napkins. Yes, I have way too many linens!

  19. Good ideas. I have the hanging jewelry organizer and the makeup organizer. It makes it easier to find stuff.

  20. IKEA also does a lid rack, metal and easily adjustable.

    • I turned my lid rack on it’s side so the lid has less chance of sliding out.
