How to Add More Storage to your Home

It’s always nice to have creative and great-looking storage, nooks and corners to store things around the house. A clean house is an organized house. It’s easier to keep a clean house if everything in your home has it’s own storage spot. If items are constantly flaoting around, then you’re bound to have things laying around, and you will always waste time looking for things.

The places where we need the most storage are in kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms, home offices, play rooms and basements. I’ve gathered a few ideas of ways you add and use shelving units in these place. Click on any of the images below for more information.

This post is dedicated to all jewelry lovers. Especially those who have so much jewelry that it’s difficult to keep track and organized. And let’s not talk about loosing pieces because you don’t have a specific place to store them.

One way to solve these problems is to have a jewelry dish or multiple dishes for your rings and dainty earrings that can be easily misplaced. And you won’t believe how easy it is to make one.

To make a jewelry dish you’ll need:

1) Find a wide mouth shallow dish or buy one at your local dollar store.

I bought this dish at my local Dollar Tree for $1.00

2) Spray paint it your favorite color.
