Does anyone else take a look at the real estate prices and drown your sorrows in a big ol' glass of chocolate milk? Okay, maybe not chocolate milk, but you get my point.

I'm basically stuck with a tiny apartment for life, and I've mostly gotten over it at this point. But when you've got a tiny home, you've got to be strategic with storage and saving space. It ain't easy, my friends! 


1. Attach Magnets To The Top Of Your Fridge

No one uses the space on the top of the fridge! This is actually one of the most genius space-saving hacks I've ever seen. You could either buy something like this or DIY it.

2. Use Over-The-Door Storage To Organize Bathroom Products

Over-the-door storage might usually be meant for shoes, but you can really organize and store anything in there! This could be used for toys in the kids room, too.


3. Use CD Racks To Store Tupperware Lids

Who uses CD racks anymore anyway? Might as well pick some up at the thrift store for $0.50 and use them to your advantage. Tupperware is so hard to organize and store efficiently! 

4. Use Bamboo Sticks In A Jar To Hold Knives

Hey, not everyone can have some fancy-shmancy knife holder with every knife under the rainbow. Some people have to go the broke route, okay?


5. Cut Notches In Your Shelves For Toothbrushes

Did you know that your toothbrushes should be kept in a drawer or cabinet? There's a heck of a lot of germs floating around a bathroom. 

6. Get Your Tools Off The Garage Floor With PVC Pipe

If your garage looks more like a garbage dump than you want it to, start by getting everything off the floor and onto the walls to optimize storage space.


7. Add Velcro Tape To Controllers So You Never Lose Them

I'm constantly loosing our remote control within the seats of the couch. Sometimes the dog even buries it there (she's also chewed up a PS4 controller...). 

8. Make More Closet Space With Soda Tabs

This is another hack that is tried and true! I've been doing this with my clothes hangers for a few months now and it definitely helps with closet space!


9. Go vertical using a pegboard and hooks.

Instead of putting tons of holes in the wall to hang your pots and pans, use a pegboard to make the most out of your vertical space. 

10. Use a PVC pipe to store your hair tools.

This is perfect for making your bathroom vanity feel just like the hair salon. It's also a great place to put your hot tools once you're done with them.


11. Use a second tension rod in the bathtub for toy organization.

If you've got kiddos who love bath time and their bath toys, this hack is an easy way to keep them all organized.

12. Take a photo of what's in your storage bins.

I can never remember which bin has what stuff inside of it! This is especially true for my craft supplies. This would help me out a lot.


13. Turn an old bookshelf into under-the-bed storage.

Basically, you put the unit on its side, give it a paint job, and add some caster wheels for easy rolling.

I actually think the result is super cute and super useful.

With a few handles, it'd be easy to roll this in and out. I could definitely benefit from something like this in my bedroom!


14. Use a couple of long dowels and tie them together as a coat rack.

I'm always in need of extra space for jackets, especially when people come over to visit. Plus, this is super chic!

15. Throw your bed slats up on the wall for vertical storage.

If pegboards aren't your thing, why not grab a set of $10 Ikea bed slats and use them on your wall instead? This might be one of my favorite Ikea hacks!


16. Hide Your Jewelry Behind A Mirror

Medicine cabinets have been a thing for years as a great way to hide less desirable items behind a mirror. This hack is basically the same thing, just much more glam!

17. Use A Carabiner To Hold Your Hair Elastics

I can NEVER seem to find a hair elastic when I need one the most. Using a carabiner is not only genius, but it's pretty cheap, too. I need to stock up on these guys!


18. Use Chicken Wire To Make A Jewelry Display

Cutting chicken wire is definitely not the most fun project. It sucks, but it's worth it! Use the wire and an old frame to display your jewelry.

19. Use Adhesive Hooks Everywhere

Whether you're organizing your quilting supplies or making space in your kitchen, adhesive hooks are a godsend! I'm stocking up on these, grandma would be so proud.


20. Use Jars Underneath Your Shelves

Whenever I have to break out the hammer and nails, I groan a bit. But for this DIY, even though it's kind of annoying, it's kind of amazing too!

21. Use An Accessory Hook To Hold Your Camisoles

Who else needs a better way to organize their closet space so their bedroom is less messy? With hacks like these, my room's going to be a palace!


22. Use A Magnetic Strip To Hold Bobby Pins

This is a hack that I use in my home, and for the most part it definitely works. I just have to remember to put the bobby pins away when I've used them!
