A cluttered home can quickly make your life feel out of control. You’re probably always looking for new ways to declutter and organize your home — but without racking up a credit card bill at the Container Store or Bed, Bath & Beyond.

Fortunately, there of lots of ways that you can organize your living space using items you probably already have floating around the house. Here’s 15 clever solutions that you can implement today.

  1. Keep cords and earbuds from getting tangled by storing them in an old glasses case or sunglasses case.
  2. A paper towel holder is perfect for holding spools of ribbons.
  3. If your fridge quickly gets cluttered with children’s artwork or bills to pay, use the inside of your upper cabinets to put a laminated emergency contact list for babysitters or guests.
  4. Sticky hooks will keep your dustpan and brush out of the way.
  5. A lazy Susan under the sink or on a cabinet shelf helps make all your cleaning supplies accessible.
  6. If you have high ceilings, add a shelf over your doors.
  7. Use old vases to hold laundry pods.
  8. Save ratty old toothbrushes and use them to scrub grime and mold off your sink and bathtub more easily. They are much smaller than regular cleaning brushes!

  10. Use shower curtain hooks to hang purses in the closet.

  12. Put acceptable after school snacks in over-the-door shoe organizers for easy access.
  13. Store awkwardly-sized foils and wraps in a cabinet door.
  14. Install the number of towel bars for the number of people who use a bathroom.
