Dollar Store Organizing Ideas and Projects
This candle holder makes cute cotton swab storage, from ‘Craft-o-Maniac‘.
This wonderful idea is by Instagram boot lover Desiree… use dollar tree pool noodles cut down to create boot trees, to keep them all from being a pile of floppy leather in the closet! I need to do this as soon as pool noodles hit my dollar shop again!
Use an ice cube tray for an earring holder… this tucks into a drawer really easily as well… This idea is from ‘Yesterday on Tuesday‘.
Need a little DIY project? Try this DIY gift wrap storage from ‘Country Chic Cottage‘. Angie will show you step by step how to put this together. Perfect idea! Right now my gift wrap is shoved into a corner of my linen closet…(:
This tiered tray from the ‘Liz Marie Blog‘ is made from dollar store plates and candlesticks… and a little glue!
From Diane on ‘Hometalk‘, these dollar store crates are attached to create easy shelving for a childs room…
Love this craft ribbon organizer from ‘Mini Moz‘! Do this for a gift wrapping station!
From Jen at ‘I Heart Organizing’, this DIY rope basket is made from a dollar store laundry basket!
Use dollar store baskets hung with cup hooks under a cabinet or self to hold cords, dvd’s or other items that need to be kept out of the way. From ‘Martha‘.
Organize your scarves (I have more than 20!) with these dollar store shower rings hung on hangers, from ‘From the Desk‘!
Note : We’ve had a lot of reader comments on this idea, with a major complaint being that the rings just slide everywhere… Reader solution? Use pipe cleaners wrapped around the hanger between each ring, dabs of hot glue, or a plastic clothespin! Personally, I have so many scarves, they aren’t gonna be sliding anywhere!
Make a dry erase calendar with dollar store frames, scrapbooking paper and dry erase markers! This great organizing idea is from Melissa at ‘Crafty City Chick‘.
