Photo No. 1 would scare anyone. It looks like something off of Hoarders, but in all reality, it is a boy’s room and many boys don’t care too much about cleanliness or the ability to find things readily. Photo No. 2 is a different story.
As you can see, everything is organized neatly and looks presentable at all times. Today on Style Cents, my segment theme is all about organizing on a budget, featuring only products from The Dollar Tree.
What’s the one thing that seems to get tangled, misplaced, easily lost, etc? Jewelry.
Currently in stores, you can find these three options: 1) Desk Tray Organizer, 2) Ice Cube Trays, 3) Hardware Plastic Organizing Box (filled). All of these items are perfect for organizing your jewelry and stowing away. The desk tray is perfect for your long necklaces and pieces you wear every day, i.e., watch, ring, earrings, necklace, bracelet. It’s lightweight and still provides six compartments for organizing. The ice cube trays are perfect for earrings and can easily be laid on top of clothing that’s been placed inside a drawer. And the hardware organizer is perfect for traveling. Add your items, close the top, throw it in your bag and you no longer have to worry about your items knotting up during travel.
Make cleaning simple.
These heavy duty boxes are currently sold both online and in stores. They’re perfect for storing room-specific cleaning products. Jimmy’s always willing to help out around the house if he knows what product to use and this takes the 1000 questions we-should-have-done-it-ourselves-feeling out of it
Everyone has one and it always seems to be the drawer that stays cluttered for years and years. With these seven items, it no longer needs to be this way! Completely clean out your junk drawer and add the fabric box. From there, organize your items in the wire baskets, position correctly, close the door. Keep the organization going and you’ll be frantic free.
I found this fun fabric box at the Dollar Tree, and yes, it was only $1.00. Pair it with this cube organizer – cheapest I was able to find – and your child’s room, your living room, office, laundry room, etc. Eight boxes – $8 – paired with $45 organizer, equals $53.00 + free shipping when you pick up at the store, or order $50 or more. Can’t beat it with the box price because many are $5+ a piece. This way, you’ll be saving $32.00!
I have learned that if consistently live an organized life, it’s proven you’re less stressed! Visit your local Dollar Tree or shop online for all your organizing needs. And for more cool organizing tips, visit here and here. Hail to those who invented Pinterest!
