twin sheet folded long ways. Sew 5 sections to the size of pillowcases and slipped the pillows in. I left each 'pillow compartment' end open so the pillows can be removed and we can wash the cover. Kids love it on the family room floor!
Coat Closet Storage solution for the hats and gloves that pile up. Screw the IKEA Garbage Bag holders into the coat closet door. The BEST part is the little holes allow the kids to grab glove without having to dump out the entire bin to get to them.
DIY: PVC Pipe Shoe Storage - so fun and so simple, could easily spray paint or cover in fabric or paper too. maybe a horizontal layout of two rows or something. I think this would be good for garage "yard shoes" storage
use sink caddies on the sides of the pantry or closet wall. Smart way to keep track of all of those small packages of pantry items. they are just little sink caddies, held on to the wall by self-adhesive velcro dots!
Possibility for extra storage in the kids' bathroom. Could put all the 'overstock' toothpastes, toothbrushes, shampoos, baby items, in cute baskets over the door. Then there would be room in the tiny linen closet for linens.
