Have you ever gone to one of your local dollar stores? If so, then you probably have an idea of the different items they typically offer. Welcome to Hello Cleaner’s DIY and here are Cheap and Simple Organizing Ideas with Items from the Dollar Store.
1. Having trouble giving your bathroom enough much-needed storage space? Then why not give this towel storage idea a try? This is the perfect way to keep all those towels organized while making sure that the design complements your bathroom. All you need here are some dollar store baskets and a little screwing and you’re good to go.
2. There’s a reason why earrings need some organizing, too. It’s a real pain if you misplace one, or if you are going to need a specific pair, you want to immediately know where to find it. This is exactly what this idea gives you. But instead of buying an expensive organizer, you can use an ice cube tray to do the trick.
3. You probably have a lot of bathroom electronics lying around on the sink and it’s time to put them all in a single location. All you’ll need is a simple file box and hang it on your bathroom wall. You can use it to store hair curlers or straighteners, blow dryers, or any other appliances you mostly use in the bathroom.
4. Create a tiered, open display organizer with dollar store materials. You can place all of your accessories, such as watches, earrings, and necklaces, on this tiered tray. First, get crystal candleholders, metal trays, super glue, and a sponge brush, all from the dollar store. Paint the trays in the color of your choosing. After the paint is dry, glue the candlesticks to the center of the trays. That’s it.
5. Remember those plastic over-the-door shoe organizers? They don’t have to be used solely for footwear. Use one to store your gift wrap, which you’ll likely find useful when birthdays or other gift-giving celebrations come around.
6. Display your jewelry using a wire rack and all you need to do is screw a wire rack onto a piece of wood to create a chic jewelry holder. This is a chic way to start displaying your accessories.
7. Are your scarves tangled up all over the place in your closet? All you need is a simple wooden hanger and some cheap curtain rings to create a scarf organizer.
8. Why buy a plastic basket when you can make a much sleeker looking one? This is exactly what a rope basket offers. Pick a design that you think is consistent with your home or the area you want to place it in. The simpler, the better, though, especially since the rope element lends its own style to the basket.
9. Rather than throwing them all into a basket, this unique hack will help you organize all those craft ribbons you have. It is also a perfect way to prevent them from getting tangled with each other. Simply stick a rod through the basket and start threading the ribbons onto it. Pull the ribbons through the holes and you’re done.
10. A kid’s room usually has less space, but the dollar store has everything you need to create more storage space. Take for example this DIY storage shelf, which will provide both functionality and style. You just need to connect some plastic crates and drill holes in the bottoms so you can attach them to the wall. Voila! You have built a storage shelf. It really is that simple!
11. Want to give your bathroom extra storage space? If so, then try incorporating a second shower rod. By doing so, you are taking advantage of the area’s vertical space. You can hang some small baskets from the second rod to store items like razors, scissors, extra shampoos or soaps, and a whole lot more.
12. Want to make use of some affordable accessories from the dollar store? Buy a couple of suction cups and hair elastics. You can use them as shampoo bottle holders in the bathroom. These bottle holders do not take much time at all to craft. You can get creative if you want by using different colors of hair elastics.

14. Everyone can agree that organizing medicines can be quite challenging. Start by getting rid of the expired ones, and then you can easily start organizing the rest.

That way, you’ll know which one to grab when you need it and you’ll have easy access next time!
15. One way to prevent germs or bacteria from growing in your bathroom is to consider organizing all your toothbrushes. Start by keeping them all in a single place.

This is a simple project that could be hugely beneficial.
17. Have you ever seen those transparent travel containers from the dollar store? Pick some up and use them to your advantage. You can use them to store soap or other items like your kid’s toys or colored pencils. The best part is that each container won’t cost you more than a dollar.
18. Your kids probably love to leave toys on the staircase and it is time to teach them how to be organized. First, buy some lightweight plastic baskets and then put them on the staircase. That way, when your kid is done playing, they can put away the toys in the baskets.
19. You can always use a cake stand for another purpose and in this case, you can use it as a soap stand. Place one in your bathroom and put your soap on top of it.
