Repurpose Household Items For A More Organized Home

I bet y’all could repurpose household items right now. Why aren’t you? Hmmm, maybe you just need a little nudge to your imagination ? Most of these are so super easy and well, can you say FRUGAL?!   Being a good budgeter is much more than knowing where your money is coming from and going to.  It’s about making wise decisions with where you truly ‘need’ to spend.  Upcycling items into useful and decorative home items are a great way to reduce your footprint as well as save a LOT of moolah honey!  Keep your eye on supply costs by borrowing or sharing with friends. Buy paints in ‘mistake’ sections of stores. Post in yard sale sites ISO (in search of).  So, what are you thinking you may want to try your hand at? Here’s some fun and penny pincher ideas for you to check out.

1- Coffee tables are so over priced. With this DIY you can turn some old crates into a coffee table. I see these at yard sales and you guessed it, curbside for trash pick up too.  Built in storage or seasonal decor makes this  huge plus over plain  coffee tables.

2- Phone cords all over the place are annoying. Solve the issue by making a cell phone charging
holder out of a lotion bottle.  I could seriously use this at work too!  Maybe make a bunch and give them out as office holiday treats ??

4- A vintage crate can become a magazine holder in just a few steps.  Hang one up in a family area for fashionable place to cut down on table top clutter. Are you thinking where I’m thinking?

6- If you have an old guitar case laying around you can make a gorgeous jewelry holder.  This!!  I love what a rock’n piece of wall art this makes while serving as a super efficient organizer.  I am thinking WOW as a spice rack in the kitchen.  Now that would make a custom look !
