Always losing your keys? Not only will a designated key storage unit help to organise your home and save you time, it will also offer additional home security as keys will be kept out of reach and out of sight.

Talking about keys, do you get confused looking through your keys, trying to remember which one opens what? Painting the bow of your keys will nail varnish is a great way to distinguish them and will save time when searching through a bunch of keys. (see main image above to get inspired!)

Organise your kitchen cupboards:

Magazine files are a cheap and innovative way to organise your home.  Whether you want to get your tin foil and cling film in order, or are fed up of drinks bottles tumbling out of the cupboard at you, there are endless ways you can use this cheap storage solution to bring order to your kitchen.

Turn your jewellery storage in to art:

This cheap and simple solution will turn jewellery storage into a piece of art, and because your jewellery is visible, you’re less likely to neglect pieces and leave them unworn at the back of a drawer.

Simple add a piece of hessian or mesh to a frame for earrings and broaches and add as many hooks as you like to store necklaces and bracelets.

If you want to keep your jewellery a little more hidden, ice cube trays make fantastic jewellery drawer organisers.  Forget tangled chains and mismatched earrings, everything becomes easy to find in an instant.

Organise your electrical leads:

Have a drawer or cupboard full of tangled electrical leads but struggling to remember what any of them are for? Empty toilet rolls are an invaluable tool in helping you to organise your home and make great lead storage solution that can be easily decorated or labelled.

Magnetic strips for your bathroom cabinet:

Self-adhesive magnetic strips placed on the inside of your bathroom cabinet door will save on time and stress, with hair grips, tweezers, nail scissors etc all on hand whenever you need them!

Think outside the box when it comes to storage space:

Struggling to find enough storage in your home? Consider utilising unused space above your door frames…this is especially useful in bathrooms and laundry rooms.

Store your cleaning products in a shoe rack:

Short on shelf and cupboard space? No problem!  A cheap and simple polythene shoe rack make sna ideal storage solution for those endless cleaning products!

Just make sure the cupboard you store them in is secure and lockable if you have small children…
