Wow. There are so many great ideas on here.

I'm currently living in a country where hardly anyone buys new tupperware/rubbermaid containers and just uses the bins and jars from the food they buy. I need to work on storing lots more things with them.

I really like how lots of you are repurposing and recycling. Keep up the list. This is doing exactly what I hoped it would.

While I was downsizing my hoard of down comforters and wool blankets, I realized that I hate the clumping synthetic filler that dog beds come with. I took the 2 worst down comforters and the 2 worst wool blankets, and each dog bed got one of each. Washable, refluffable, and happy dog-making, especially in the cold winter.

I repurposed a shoe box to caddy all my tupperware lids. Was looking for something online, but then the new budget hit and not being a necessity...

What about a necklace tree? Any ideas? I'd love to see my necklaces more often so that I would put one on once in awhile.

A piece of ribbon or clothesline would work. Use clothespins (clothesline) or safety pins (ribbon) to hang each of your necklaces.

Warning: necklace trees are a BAD idea with cats. Found that out the hard way.

I re-purposed my belt hanger like this for a necklace hanger in my closet.

We use a desk hutch as storage in DD's room. We removed it from the desk in the office, put it on the floor in her room and added beautiful wicker baskets on the top and underneath to store her toys. It is perfect. Kinda like our own shelving system.

I use lined wicker baskets in every room in our home. They work perfectly and they're pretty.

This week I turned an old frame,some left over fabric and some left over plastic needle point canvas into a jewelry organizer for my daughter's room.

I installed a shelf above the washer/dryer and put a box for each family member, plus 1 for sheets/towels and 1 for ironing. Now I can do a load of laundry and put in away in 5 minutes. Once a week each family member has to take their box and put their clothes away.
The boxes are also great for unpacking after trips or odd items left lying around downstairs.

We don't have any drawers bg enough for a junk drawer so all the typical "junk drawer crap" (envelopes, tape, pins, stamps, paperclips, calculator) goes into one of those and then to the shelf above the stove.
