Cheap store finds to help you organize clutter

We all know that cheap does not necessarily connote quality, but it does sure make shopping for your home quite a thrill. With cheap items that you can buy at Daiso, The Japan Home Centre and the like, you can shop to heart’s content – guilt free. And with such unique finds, you’ll always be inspired to try new things.

 

Here are a few finds that are less than P100, which you can use for other practical purposes.

 

  1. Bamboo luncheon mat – This is a cheap, temporary fix when you’re looking for an easy way to store your accessories such as dangling earrings. Simply tie two strands on both ends of the mat and hang it on your door (or you can even use hooks). Then, hook your dangling earrings between the slats of the bamboo mat.

 

 

 

  1. Cutlery organizers – Instead of storing cutlery organizers in the drawer, mount them in your closet as an instant jewelry box. Use push pins or nails to hang your necklaces.

 


  1. Metal baskets – Mount these on the walls for instant floating shelves. The metal baskets would look well in an urban, rustic apartment. Plastic baskets could work as well, however, metal baskets are sturdier.

 


 

  1. Mason jars and glass containers – Mason jars have never been cheaper thanks to its popularity and mass production. Keep your makeup brushes neatly stored in mason jars (without lids) and/ or glass containers. Fill the jar 1/3 to ½ with marbles or fine sand. Then stick your makeup brushes, handle-down, into the marbles so that the brush fibres are not squished and are allowed to aerate.

 

 

  1. Rake – Remove the handle from the plastic rake and then mount it on the wall. The rungs can be used to hang your bags and necklaces.
