Are you tired of your batteries running out at just the wrong time, and you don’t want to go to the store to pick up more? Invest in rechargeable batteries next time! Yes, they cost a little more initially, but they pay for themselves over time. Plus, you will keep some batteries out of the landfill and save money in the long run.
Disposal batteries are so 20th century, and rechargeable ones are what everyone is going for. The next thing we need someone to invent is that all devices requiring batteries should have a charging option instead. Them we can say goodby to batteries, especially the disposal ones altogether.
Use Egg Cartons
You throw out so many egg containers, you might as well save one for storage, right? This hack is super easy and will help you save money on an expensive Christmas tree organizer. There is nothing more frustrating than getting ready to put up the tree only to discover you don't have enough decorations.
Tha little ornaments and beautiful Christmas balls fit perfectly into the egg container. They will display exactly the amount of decorations you have, the colors, and the variety. So next time you go out for some more decorations, check what you have fist.
Hold On to Your LEGO
Who would have thought that our childhood toys could one day be repurposed into a key organizer? So before you chuck out all of your precious Legos, take a look at this. You won't believe what can be accomplished with your child's favorite bricks.
With some crafting skills, you can turn them into keychains! Next, mount a broader LEGO piece by your front door for easy access. You can turn these little blocks into something more in so many ways. The options are endless! Just think of it. You can use a combination of only two colors or go all the way with all shades of the rainbow. It's creativity at its best!
Unlikely Storage Spaces
With limited floor space, storage options need a creative edge, and this is where things become interesting. Next time you need to store something, and you don't have any space, don't look down. Look straight up as your next perfect place to pile your books, it's going to be where you least expect it.
Many DIY pages suggest looking up and installing high shelving in the empty space above doorways. These spaces are often wasted, but they can serve as very nifty nooks while doubling as an attractive feature. This can also be used for displaying things you need but don't have the heart to throw out.
Insulated wires like cords and cables have a tendency to clutter your space while getting tangled. If only they'd keep their cool, you probably wouldn't need to research storage hacks like you're doing right this moment. Nothing is more frustrating than trying to untangle three or four sets of wires that all happen to be in the same place at the same time.
This is why we recommend you use paper towel rolls or toilet paper rolls (or any kind of roll for that matter) and store all your cables in a shoebox. Another great use for another simple item we all have laying around.
