Organize Flip Flops and Flats 

Organize and store flats and flip flops in magazine holders. Simply use a different holder for each style.

Organize Plastic Wrap, Foil, Etc. 

Most of us do not have enough drawer space. No need to take it up with foils and wraps! Simply store in a magazine holder.

Organize and Store Pantry Perishables

Store your pantry perishables in a metal magazine holder with open holes. This allows air to circulate. Magazine holders are also great for holding pasta in the pantry. Think outside the box!

Water Bottle Storage and Organization

This is one of my favorites! If you are like me, you too probably have a lot of water bottles. This is a simple, effective, and inexpensive!

Curling Iron Organizer

Organize styling tools under your sink or in the linen closet with a magazine holder. Store curling irons, hair straighteners, even dryers. Just be sure to let it cool first.

Organize Your Fridge & Freezer

This is another favorite! No need to buy expensive clear refrigerator holders. Just grab clear magazine holders for simple and effective organization!

Hide Your Modem or Router

Modems and routers are definitely not visually appealing. Simply hide in a magazine holder either upright or laying on it’s side (wooden ones look like a shelf!). Easy and effective way to hide them.

Organize and Hide Toilet Paper

Simply store toilet paper in a magazine holder. It not only organizes but is easy to grab!

Organize and Store Canned Goods

Another one I love! Organizes yet allows you to see in order to select without rummaging.

 

Magazine holders are such underutilized but effective and inexpensive storage tool. Hopefully, these ten hacks will help you on the road to a more organized home. If you try any, let me know what you think.
