Budget Friendly Home Organization Tips and Tricks
Keeping your apartment clean and organized all the time easier said than done. We at Legacy Court Apartments in Midvale can give you the perfect living space to make your own. To help you in maintaining your perfect living space we have gathered some budget friendly home organization tips and tricks for you to try.
Use Soda Tabs to Create Cascading Hangers
Rather than spending the extra money on specially made cascading hangers you can create your own by using soda tabs off of soda cans. Attaching a soda tab to a hanger is the cheapest and easiest way to create your own cascading hangers. By creating these hangers you can open up space in your closet that wasn’t available to you before.
Use your Old Shoeboxes
Rather than buying shoe bins or shoe closet organizers, you can use the original shoe box your shoes come in when you purchase them. There are ways to spruce up those existing shoe boxes so your closet doesn’t start looking like a shoe store. By taking fabric, paint, or scrapbook paper, you can recover your shoe boxes with a design that fits your existing décor. If you want to get really organized, take pictures of your shoes and print them to place on your shoe box as labels.
Reuse Empty Glass Jars
When you are trying to organize your kitchen you might be tempted to go and buy plastic containers to store pasta, herbs, beans, etc. in. These bins can easily be replaced with the empty glass jars you can get from eating jams, jellies, and pasta sauces. These jars are just as nice as the plastic ones you can buy at the store and can easily be cleaned. Add a special touch to your jars by creating vinyl labels.
Make use of Scrap Wood
Rather than buying various types of plastic containers you can easily create your own with any scrap wood you have around your house. If wood is a material you prefer not to work with, cardboard can easily be substituted. This way you can create storage containers that are specific to your needs. These often work best when you are needing to organize your drawers in your bathroom or kitchen.
Getting your apartment clean and organized just takes a little creativity and some budget friendly tips like the ones listed above. For more information on the rentals we have available at Legacy Court Apartments in Midvale make sure you check out our website or give us a call.
