Creative Ways to Organize

When drawers and shelves aren’t enough to stay organized, these creative organization tips will help you get control of your space:

Jars

A simple and visually appealing way to get a little more organized is by separating similar objects into glass jars. This can be great when organizing your workbench. Separate nuts and bolts, screws and nails into different jars. Jars can also be a great option for storing your seeds. The jar should keep your seeds fresh while you wait for the right time of year to start your garden up again.

Coat Racks

Coat racks, especially horizontal ones, can be a great way to keep things organized. The best part about using a coat rack to keep things organized is that you can hang it up along the wall. Doing this is a great way to keep tools and cleaning supplies off the ground. You can even hang bags from the hooks. Store similar items in bags to keep them together.

Bicycle Basket

Taking your bicycle basket off of your bike and hanging it on the wall is another great storage idea. You can keep paperwork in them, planting supplies, tools–you name it.

Kayak Storage

Now that it’s summer, it’s time to get out our kayaks and water sports gear from the shed. We’ll want to keep them stored somewhere easy to access, as to not get discouraged from taking them out for weekend boating trips. You can actually make your own Kayak storage rack out of PVC pipe. It’s not too difficult.

Making use of the outside of your shed

The inside of your shed isn’t the only place you can use for storage. Doing a lot of outdoors work this summer? Attach a wooden boot holder to the outside of your wooden storage shed. The look will compliment the outside appearance of your shed and also be a great way to easily access your work boots.

Having a lot of bonfires this summer? Add a storage rack to the outside of your shed where you can keep nicely chopped pieces of firewood. Beats keeping them lying around in a pile all summer. Plus, keeping your wood under the shelter of your shed’s roof will reduce the need to keep a tarp around at all times.

Go vintage

Another visually pleasing way to make more room is by repurposing old objects into new uses.

Vintage is the new chic. Get creative with a wall hanger that you can decorate. Wooden hangers are a great way to make use of your wall space while keeping things vintage. Use charming, box crates made out of vintage wood to store your movies, books, and magazines in. Stack vintage luggage to create a table for storage. Maybe even use the insides of the luggage to keepsakes!

Using these creative ways to keep your shed, house or workspace clean won’t only be helpful, they will look great. Don’t be surprised if friends and guests ask you for tips on how they can get organized!
