Living Amazing in 2012 with Goodwill

DIY Storage Crafts

Posted by Holly Hirsch on Aug 3, 2012 9:37:00 AM

You've all probably heard the saying, 'A place for everything, and everything in its place.' We can't help but agree; one of the easiest ways to stay organized is to have a designated spot for everything in your home. This makes those quick clean-ups a breeze, because everything has a place to go. Have fun with your storage using these DIY storage ideas from Better Homes & Gardens, that can be completed using items from Goodwill.

Since we keep magazines, remote controls and more in our living room, coffee tables are a must-have! A simple way to prevent the top of your table from looking cluttered is to ensure that there's storage below. We love this idea for a coffee table made from wooden crates and a recycled door. Look to Goodwill for 4-6 wooden crates in the same size. You'll also want to find an old door, or even a window, to use as the top of the table. A door from a dresser could also suffice.

Shower caddies keep your bathroom supplies organized, but why not keep other household items organized with them as well? Hang one by the front door to hold your mail, address book and keys. Or, keep your wrapping paper and accessories clutter-free by storing ribbon, paper, and scissors on your shower caddy!

If you're like us, we have a hard time getting rid of magazines (there's always at least one article we want to look back at!) We love this repurposing project that gets those stacks of magazines off of the table, but keeps them within arm's reach. Check Goodwill for an old bucket (metal looks best). Your local garden store will have a plant hook, that you can use right on your wall - the bucket will hang nice and sturdy from this. Voila!
