If you love to cook, then you probably purchase fresh herbs fairly often. The problem is that it seems almost impossible to use the entire amount you buy at the supermarket before it goes bad. Instead of throwing them in the trash, you can put them in the freezer!
As soon as you get home from the farmer’s market or pick your favorite herbs from your own garden, simply chop them up, put them in an ice cube tray with some olive oil, and have some seasoning ready for every occasion.
Use Your Beverage Dispenser as a Detergent Dispenser
Is there a beverage dispenser somewhere in your house? If there is, it’s most likely dusty, unused, and doesn't do much but take up space around your house. If you are not the kind of person who hosts parties all the time, you probably barely use that old thing.
You can repurpose your unused dispenser and turn it into a laundry soap dispenser. Fill it with liquid detergent, and you can make sure you use the right amount for every wash. Your laundry area will even look better.
Use a Pringles Can to Store Spaghetti
Spaghetti noodles usually come in plastic bags that are almost impossible to reclose once you have opened them. If you only cook some of the noodles, the noodles that are left in the bag become a bit stale and also have a tendency to start falling out into your pantry.
Next time you are snacking on some Pringles, keep the empty can, clean it out, and it becomes the perfect container for noodles. It is just the right size, has a lid, and will save you the trouble and expense of getting a special container.
Shoe Organizers Aren’t Just for Shoes
Everybody knows those plastic shoe organizers that hang on the back of closet doors with pockets for all your pairs of flat shoes. Here’s a groundbreaking thought, you can use them for storing things that are not shoes!
A shoe organizer can help you get your pantry in order. You can use it to store the smaller items and to see everything you have in a single glance. They can also be a great place to store all the different cords and plugs that can be found everywhere around the house.
Organize Your Closet With Pot Lid Racks
Storage solutions may have been designed for your kitchen, but that doesn’t mean they have to stay there. A pot lid rack is the storage solution your cluttered closet didn’t know it needed.
You can use one of these racks to organize your clutches, wallets, and even small purses that used to take up space and create a big mess in your closet. This way, when you are getting dressed, you have all your choices laid out for you, and all you need to do is pick one.
