2. Alternative Uses for a Shoe Organizer

You can use a shoe organizer for so many other things beside shoes. Karen from Sew Many Ways had the clever idea to use a shoe organizer in her broom closet to hold paper towels. You could also use a shoe organizer in your closet to hold undergarments and accessories like scarves, hats, and tights.

3. Bookcase as a Child’s Closet

Is your child’s room short on closet space or is your baby’s nursery in a room without a closet? A tall bookcase makes for an exceptional closet alternative. Remove the top shelves and attach double rods to maximize clothes hanging capacity. Use the remaining shelves to house baskets to keep smaller items like socks and shoes organized.

4. Matching Bedsheets in a Pillowcase

The linen closet is one area of the home that often seems destined to be a disaster. Not only are bedsheets difficult to fold, storing them can prove challenging. An easy way to fix this problem is to store matching sheet sets in one of the pillowcases.

5. Dry Erase Marker List on Washing Machine

Sarah Khandjian from Sarah Hearts shared a genius idea to help stay organized while doing laundry. To make sure you or your family members don’t put line-dry items in the dryer, use a dry erase marker to make a list directly on top of the washing machine. Say goodbye to shrunken or pilly clothes!

Cover an artist’s canvas with fabric and use card stock and clothespins to create days-of-the-week markers. Your family will thank you for making this fun DIY project.
