Frugal Household Organization Methods
Use Chalkboard Paint For Labels & Calendars:
A small can of chalkboard paint will go a long way and can be perfect for keeping things like chore charts updated, as well as your family calendar of events updated. A simple piece of scrap wood painted and hung in a central location (den, pantry, kitchen) is easy to use for grocery lists, messages, family calendar and chores lists. Use a little on each of your canisters or storage containers to help keep track of what is in them at that time. It can also be used in storage tubs for winter clothing, extra toys or bedding.
Use Simple Hooks To Hang Behind Doors & In Cabinets:
Things like utensils, pot holders, dish towels and more can be stores on simple hooks inside your pantry doors. These also work great inside closets for belts, scarves and even jewelry. A small bag of 10-15 hooks you can screw into the wall or door is under $5.
RePurpose Boxes For Storage:
Heavy duty cardboard boxes you receive shipments in can easily be used to create a fun storage container for things like books, magazines or even kids toys. Wrap in solid color wrapping paper or butcher paper and embellish with paint or washi tape for a fun design. Stack and use as a makeshift storage container for small and lightweight items. This is even perfect for putting inside your entry way for things like umbrellas and rain boots.
Use A Coat Rack Or Hooks:
One of the biggest clutter areas in a home is either in the front entry way, or in your bedroom where clothing gets tossed over chairs or tables. Invest in an entry way coat rack or hook system for jackets, sweaters and coats to hang on easily. Add an additional one in your bathroom and/or bedroom to hang bathrooms and towels on for easy storage when not in use. If you have a large family with multiple people sharing a bathroom, hooks are great for storing towels between showers.
These simple frugal household organization methods are so easy to implement in your home. It doesn’t take a lot of money to get the clutter off the floor and into its proper place. Simple investments will help you stay on top of your goals and needs within your home.
