Homeowners often come across some unique storage needs for their homes. Perhaps, you have a large stack of mostly old books, or maybe you have that one box from your grandma’s house taking up space in the attic.
If you, too, find yourself constantly outgrowing storage spaces, you can try two things – stick to multi-use storage solutions (a plastic shoebox bin comes to mind) or try to use what you already have to reorganize and store your stuff.
While you don’t have to reinvent the storage solution wheel, you can always find new ways and clever storage solutions for different problem areas.
Hang Your Chip Bags on Wire Shelves Using Clothes Hangers
Can’t find a chip clip? Just use two clothespins to seal and hang them from any standard wire pants hangers. This hack will not only keep your chips tightly sealed but will also help you save space to store other things underneath the bags on the actual shelf part.
Stick Storage Bins on The Inside of Your Bathroom Cabinets
Doors are some of the most underutilized storage spaces. You can simply add storage bins to the inside of your bathroom cabinet doors for items you need to grab often like, hair straighteners, hairbrushes, or styling products.

Hang a Silverware Organizer on Walls to Store Your Jewelry

Stash Away Your Christmas Ornaments in Egg Cartons
Small Christmas ornaments can easily fit in egg cartons. This hack helps keep them separated from each other while providing extra cushioning and security.
