Pinterest is great for so many reasons, but one of my favorite types of pins are home organizing ideas! I have gotten so many great organizing ideas which typically re-purpose common household items. I am going to share a few on my favorites. If you have seen some other good ideas, PLEASE share them with me!!

home organizing ideas

Toothbrush Organizer

toothbrush organization
Use a cutlery organizer to store you toothbrushes and toothpaste – honestly, why have I never thought of this???

Wrapping Paper Organizer

This is GREAT! I think this is an IKEA plastic bag holder and they are about $1.50 each! Great way to get the rolls off of the floor and easy to find and put away!

Gift Wrap Organizer

This is brilliant! Take a wire shelf and put some “s” hooks on it. Hang your bags and tissue paper from the wrack – keeps everything neat and easy to find and grab!

Medicine Organizer

medicine organization
I should have been a girl scout – I am always prepared. Whichever end you are having problems with, I have something to help fix it (even some placebos for the kid who has a tummy ache or headache just in time for bedtime!)  The trouble is, finding the right meds in my mess of a cabinet. I saw this on Pinterest and loved this idea!! I already had the drawers, but you can get them at Target (best place ever, a topic for another day!) and a label maker, if I haven’t mentioned it before, I have an obsession with my label maker (also a topic for a blog of its own!) – or you can print the labels from your computer. If you haven’t done this yet, don’t delay, you will thank me that day that you need THAT medicine RIGHT now!!

Wine Cork Picture Display

Not the best picture of this project, but I love it and have the perfect place in my house to hang it! This is great way to display all of the holiday cards that you get! All you need is wine corks, a yard stick and a hot glue gun! How cute is this!!

Stuffed Animal Zoo

These would have been sooooo great for us! My dog, Bella (the Princess Pinky Girl name did not stick with my boys – we settled on Bella) “enjoys” an occasional stuffed animal. She thinks of our basement as her stuffed animal buffet. these would have saved many a stuffed animals stuffing! It is basically a re-purposed curio cabinet with the glass taken out with bungee or shock cords drilled in.

      1. Thank you so much hun for the wonderful feedback, it really means a lot. We really wanted a boyish version of the zoo and this was just such a fun idea to use the same structure but give it a whole new look. Thank you again for the feature and wonderful comments.

  1. I LOVE the idea of hanging the clothes baskets on the wall. I think it’s genius. We don’t really sort clothes anymore, but I agree with you. I’d use them for each of the kids to come get their clothes to put away.

  2. I would add a 4th laundry basket for whites … some lights can still give off colour in the wash.

    I ran across the Medicine Organiser idea a few years ago and wouldn’t be without it now 🙂

    1. Hey Anne – thanks so much! I did check this when I posted it a while back, but somehow it is redirecting – I looked everywhere for the original source, but cannot locate it again! Thanks so much for pointing this out!!! Yikes!!

  3. What are the toothbrushes that are hanging in the white looking pipes marked E M and A in?! Those are great…. is it plumbing piping with a cap on the end?

  4. Wow these ideas are fantastic! I love the wrapping paper idea! Mine always get thrown around and ruined before I need to use them again.

  5. One way to store children’s toys in the bathtub. Get four or five plastic baskets with holes, I prefer Dollar Tree, and use shower curtain hooks, and a shower rod. Place two shower hooks through the holes in the baskets and slide them on the shower rod. Hang the shower rod and place the toys in the baskets after bath tub. The water drips out and no more stepping on hard, plastic toys for Mommy!
