In January I started the Simplify Your Life series and talked all about my strategy to ditch the clutter in our home. I spent some time implementing those tips and am happy to report that we have gotten rid of so much stuff! I’m over here doing a little happy dance in my chair because decluttering is such a great feeling! (If you need some decluttering tips, checkout Part 1 of this series and get those donation bins ready!) Now that we’re living with less, it’s time to organize the items that we chose to keep. Although I love being organized and would consider myself a fairly organized person, coming up with creative ideas to get organized is not one of my strengths. So instead, I rounded up 15 of the best budget friendly organization tips on the internet!
These ideas are pure genius if you ask me! Some of the tips involve items you already have in your home, and others are product recommendations that will help you step up your organization game. But ALL of them are budget friendly, which was my goal for this list. I can’t wait to implement some of these ideas in our own home and start organizing all the things! Ready to see which ideas were my favorite?
Here we go!
