The Ultimate Walk-In Closet

Use a towel rod on the inside of the linen closet for holding blankets. (this is a good idea for back of guest room door too so if guests need extra blankets, they are easy to find)

Martha Stewart Living Fabric Drawer, $7.27. See what I mean about the bin inserts being cuter? There are also solids in loads of colors (beige, black, green, pink, navy, aqua, etc etc etc) and a cranberry & beige striped number.

Martha Stewart Living White Laminate Stackable 9-Cube Organizer, $39.98. This is similar to the Real Simple organizer, but Martha offers more (cuter, let's be honest) bin insert styles. Of course she does.

Martha Stewart Living Cubbie-Storage Bench with Seat, $72.98. This is a hair on the pricey side for something that might be a little cheap-looking? But this thing is super functional.

simplehuman Wall Mount Grocery Bag Holder, $9.95 at amazon.

  • Bakery NoBlé

    I have this and it's great - it's SUPER strong adhesive though, so make sure you know where you want it before you unstickify!

  • caracol

    Already got it ! Really helpful

  • Leah Payne

    I have one of these - very useful. We use old grocery bags for kitty litter disposal.

  • tabitha ann

    i love this! it's all snazzy and futuristic.

This is about as dumb easy (and cheap!) as you can get: a tissue box bag holder.

  • Kim Novak

    That's how it gets done in my place. If I have more bags than fit in the tissue box (I usually have the jumbo sized boxes because I have awful allergies and go through tissues like water), then they go in the car to get taken back to the grocery and put in the recycle bin.

  • Cinthia Miramontes

    ha! great idea.

  • Jill Bellis

    I've been doing this for several years! Great way to keep bags under the sink for garbage.

The RATIONELL VARIERA bag holder from IKEA. I have this one and it's great. Also: $1.99. Perfect.

One of my girls asked for ideas on how to store plastic grocery bags - here's a cute DIY project.

From a commenter - a Make-up Magnet Board. AMAZING. There are loads of other styles via the link, but this one was my favorite.

A commenter mentions that this idea changed her life. Pretty clever!

Also from Catherine: "those stools under the table are actually storage ottomans! I got them at the Container Store and they serve as storage (one for extra towels and linens, one for occasional-use kitchen items kept in boxes), dining table seats (they are so sturdy and even have padding!) and also as TV trays for our couch during Doctor Who marathons. Best purchase for this little apartment by far. $30 each."

Reader Catherine sends in photos of her "Corner of Organization Triumph" and says, "Our bedroom literally holds a full bed and nothing else, so we lofted the bed, painted everything navy, put the bikes and dresser under the lofted bed, and I claimed this random nook behind the bedroom door for my accessories. 2" deep pieces of wood from Home Depot, cut to order and painted white by me (approx. $4 total) Nailed into wall to serve as high-heel storage. Necklaces on $2.99 hooks that are velcro-ed (!) to the wall--easy to move around, non-damaging to paint/wall, and also very cheap. Earrings on piece of leftover silk from my homemade brother's-wedding-bridesmaid's dress (nostalgic and also easy! Although I am going to frame it at some point to get rid of the fraying edges.)"

Reader Sunny, a self-described "reformed slob" sent this photo of how she tamed her shoes and writes, "Last year, after the better part of a lifetime (except for when I used to live overseas - mostly because I had less shit) just leaving shit "until tomorrow" (which never really came), I took action. I feel human. I'm not fully converted to clean person ways, but I now find contentment in an organized space. This was how I handled my shoe/handbag/belt problem."

Annelise also writes: "I have also started storing bracelets/hairbands/whatever in sugar bowls? Because lately the universe keeps sending me weird sugar bowls? The point is, they're cute and keep the dust out and are finally being used for something. A girl can only store so much sugar."

  • Amelia Lost

    I do a similar thing with Japanese bowls, plates and sake cups!

  • Ellie

    I have all my daily makeup and brushes in a sugar bowl in my bathroom!

  • tabitha ann

    I have random bowl-ish candleholders in drawers everywhere as organization/storage!

Reader Annelise writes in about her jewelry storage solutions: "I wanted to share one of my favorite projects--jewelry storage by pegboard. Make them cut it to whatever size you want at the hardware store, attach picture-hanging hardware, paint it and hang it up. I've added ribbon for pins and more dangly earrings, though you can just use the holes themselves, and you can get a huge assortment of hooks that seem like they're tailor-made for ridiculous bangles."
