34 Easy, Genius Ways to Organize Your Home

In the bedroom…

20. Cube storage is your best friend — especially in kids rooms where the toys can take over, making it nearly impossible to walk through.

21. Hang the closet rod even higher — doing so will actually free up more space below the clothes you've hung up, allowing you to add a dresser or two.

22. Have throw pillows? Toss ‘em in a basket placed in a corner of the room or next to your bed.

23. Use the space under your bed wisely. Add storage bins or add a storage-friendly platform.

24. Hang scarves, belts and any other accessories on a towel bar affixed to unused wall space in your closet. You'll free up rod space by doing so.

25. Use a hanging shoe organizer to store bulky clothing, like sweaters. Roll them up and slide right in.

26. We all know how much of a pain in the ass it is having many pairs of boots — because where the heck do you put them? Get a boot rack ($69.99 at Amazon), and hang ‘em up instead.

27. In your sock and underwear drawer, use honeycomb-style organizers ($10 at Amazon) to keep them from becoming a jumbled mess.
