How to Organize for $0.00

Many people have the misconception that organizing has to cost a lot of money. However, I have done a few organizing projects that cost little-to-no money at all. Such as my kitchen drawer organizer that I made for under $2 and how I recycled baby food jars to organize my spices.
I've gathered a few other wonderful ideas to help get you organized using items that you would normally throw away.

Boxes are a great way to hide the clutter. Most people throw away several boxes every month. A few of my favorite boxes to re-porpose are diaper boxes and cereal boxes. You can dress them up with fabric, paper or paint. And if you can't find a box in the size you need, it is so easy to make your own.


I am always saving our glass jars. Glass is the perfect way to organize because you can see what you have at a glance. Set them on a shelf, lay them sideways or attach the lids to the underside of a shelf for hanging storage.


Cans are yet another easy-to-come-by item. They come in all different sizes. Cover them with pretty paper, add labels, or leave them just the way they are.


There are so many items out there that are viewed as trash yet make wonderful organizing tools. Here are a few other ideas for using everyday items for storage.

  1. I have a LOT of cd/dvd spindles and tops. I go through a lot of them at my business.

    1. I stole a few of those from hubby. They are great for organizing cords and ribbons.

  2. I love these ideas. My mom used to use old boxes all the time. Back then she would cover washing powder boxes with shelf liner - the old kind - peel and stick. I saw somewhere you can use empty liquid creamer bottles not only to store stuff - but put food items like goldfish in them. Thanks for sharing

    1. I saw that too. The poor spout is perfect for small items like nuts and candy. You could even use them for cereal when you are traveling.

  3. Great tips! Thanks for sharing.
