All these hanging organizers feature strong boards to support the weight of your belongings safely and to keep the shelves from losing shape.

1. Use vertical storage to maximize space.

Make the most of your wall space by adding shelves and bookcases for books, knick-knacks, photographs, and other stuff.

Hooks or hanging rails can also be installed to keep coats and jackets organized. Don't forget to use the undersides of shelves and furniture as well. They are perfect for storing containers filled with toys, blankets, or extra linens.

2. Utilize drawer dividers to keep organized.

Place dividers between different types of items to make it easier to find what you need. This advice is especially useful in the kitchen. Try separating spices, utensils, tools, kitchen gadgets, condiments, etc., in different compartments for easier access while cooking!

3. Repurpose old item for new function.

If you're short on cash but don't want to shell out for customary storage solutions like wardrobes or filing cabinets. Old suitcases make perfect bedside tables with built-in drawers, while weathered trunks look great as coffee tables with a hinged top that opens up into a hidden storage area!

4. Invest in stackable containers with lids. 

They take up significantly less space while still providing plenty of storage inside! Stack them vertically rather than horizontally to maximize vertical space without taking up too much floor space. This type of arrangement can be very beneficial in tight halls or pantries with limited ceiling space but plenty of space along the walls!

Empty containers are your extra storage space. Consider them as you rack your brains for ways to be more organized. Fill empty bins with your odds and ends and label them properly so you can find your stuff whenever you need it. This is an excellent way to keep things organized and maximize storage space!

7. Don't forget about door storage! 

Over-the-door shoe holders are perfect for keeping your cleaning supplies, food items, and other knick-knacks organized. They also make excellent medicine cabinets if each pocket is labeled so you know what's inside!
