So, how’s spring cleaning going? Have left another corner with clutter this year? Tossing out two or more of your useless items is a wise move but what about the useful others you couldn’t find a space to store? Decluttering your home and eventually cluttering it once again due to lack of storage may serve you bigger problems than cut you some slack.

Check out these clever organizing tips to declutter your home:

Hanger for you sunglasses. Your fondness towards sunglasses, aviators, wayfarers and other types of glasses may come way out of hand when you could no longer think of where and how to store it. Well the perfect solution would be: hangers. Hang your eye wear in hangers to keep it all in place so you wouldn’t lose one again.

Ice cube tray for your jewelries. Say what? Yes, you can use ice cube trays as jewelry holders. You’ve lost too many earrings, necklaces and rings so you might want to consider this. Also, storage boxes and jewelry boxes? You do know these are too costly in comparison with an ice cube tray, right? You can just put it above your prepping table or store in a drawer.

Multipurpose hanging shoe organizer. This particular rack isn’t just made for shoes. You can actually store a lot of items in here that could save you a lot of space. For instance, you may use it as your sanitary and cleaning storage as well as a beauty products holder. If there’s still extra space, throw in your socks in there or whatever it may be you could find. Be clever!

Oh my gosh I need these right now.

I live in a small 300-sq apartment, and I have a problem with clutter (I can’t seem to find the power to throw stuff away). That being said, these are awesome and will definitely save a lot of space.

I’d also like to suggest using sofas and beds that do not have skirts. The space underneath works as a storage area. Better yet, buy furniture with drawers at the bottom.
