Organizing is one of my favorite things.
Even if it’s not my idea and one I’ve found elsewhere, I have a sense of satisfaction knowing things are clean and in their space. Everything has its own space.
It’s even more important the smaller your space is. And I know the budget is a concern. Nonetheless, keeping an organized home is a must.
I’m bringing you some of the easiest and cheapest ways to organize. All under $10.

Some are things I already do and some are just great ideas I’ve yet to incorporate or just don’t apply to me but are still worth sharing.
While these may be simple, they will have you feeling that sense of satisfaction of having part of your life organized. The best part is that they’re all under $10. Let me know which you think you’d like to try.
Task & Occasion Box
There isn’t any of us who don’t give cards for special occasions to those in our lives. Plus most of us have projects we are working on. I
keep a file box (this is the exact one I have) on my desk with a printed calendar clipped to the front with birthdays, anniversaries and deadlines written on the dates. They have a metal one at Dollar Tree. In the file box, I keep folders dated for each month that I’ve pre0-selected the cards and dropped in the file. I also keep files for what I am currently working on. I also buy cards in bulk because they are cheaper.
Organize Under the Sink
We have an astronomical amount of spray bottles, am I right?! Keeping all of that under the sink contained is easier than you think!
It’s a simple as a tension rod! Just put it in near the top where your bottles have room to hang. I put mine towards the back though. where you can hang your spray bottle cleaners and a plastic caddy that’ll hold your cleaning supplies. Who would have thought that you could completely organize your under the sink space for less than $10?

I hate nothing more than tangled jewelry. I recently packed tossed mine in a makeup bag for a trip and it was the BIGGEST mistake. It took forever to detangle the jumbled mess. I found the idea on Pinterest to use a divided pill container for jewelry storage. This is so great for travel because it takes little space and trust me when I say you do not want to get those knots out. Just drop necklaces, earrings, and rings into each box.
Flip-Flop and Flats Storage
My name is Dee Dee and I have an addiction. To flip flops and flats. So I have two great options for you for storing your flip-flops and flats. You can use a magazine holder or basket that has minimal cost. They will not only be organized but easy to grab as well.
Organize Your Desk
I hate an unorganized desk. It’s so inefficient and prevents good productivity. But I like pretty organization. Simply picking up small plastic containers will get you organized. You can get them at Dollar tree or there’s some here. It’s also great for craft organization. They’ll fit perfectly in your drawers and keep them at hand..
Pot lids have always been an issue. Putting them upside down in the pot so that you can stack them still doesn’t work. They just take up so much room. The easy remedy is command strips. Place them on the inside of the door out enough so the hooks hold them without falling.
Organize Canned Goods
If you are looking to get those canned goods under control, I have a super simple remedy. Simply magazine holders. Get several and put like cans in each. You can face the cans toward you or turn around and put a cute label on.
