Now that winter’s come to an end, it’s time for us all to assess the state of our homes. Are they cluttered? Messy? Lacking organization? We can help. We scoured Pinterest for the most creative organization and storage ideas we could find. Here are fabulous solutions to five very common causes of messy countertops, closets, and kitchens.

1. Nail Polish Storage Idea – Spice Rack

Whether you wall mount it or stow it away on a dresser, a spice rack is the perfect size to store all of your favorite polishes while keeping them visible.

2. Shoe Storage Idea – Open Basket Shelves

This open shelving unit is the perfect size for shoes, and the basket inserts help keep shoes hidden, yet easily accessible.

3. Makeup Storage Idea – Silverware Organizers

Silverware organizer trays, found in any home store, are perfect for makeup, too. Keep your products neatly sorted by type instead in one big pile in your bathroom drawer.

4. Art Storage Idea: Hanging Buckets

This idea for storing art supplies is one of the cutest we’ve seen. How great would this look in any children’s playroom?!
