It’s been a while since I last shared some home organization projects. I thought it would be fun to share with you 7 DIY home organization systems that are guaranteed to work. These are all inexpensive- yet effective- home organization ideas that I have implemented in our home for the last five years.
As I look around my kitchen – where I spend most of my time! – I realized that thanks to my DIY organization projects, things run smoothly. Even on those days when I feel rushed or fatigued. The same goes for any area of my home, where I have implemented any organization hack.

1. Organized Utility Closet
In the summer of 2016, we made wood covers for the wire shelving in the bathroom closet. Although this is not a project for beginners, it is worth the time, effort, and low money investment. This is my favorite DIY project to date, and it still looks as good as the first day.
2. Under the Kitchen Sink Organization
With over 12K shares on Pinterest, this under the kitchen sink organization project is one of my favorites to date. And do you want to know why? Because it only cost me $8! See for yourself:
3. Pots and pans Organization System
I never thought I would love my organized pots and pans cabinet in the kitchen as much as I do. But once I came up with this system, I stopped rummaging the cupboard to find my cookware. Everything has a place, and everything stays put.
4. Custom Kitchen Drawer Organizer
When I couldn’t find a standard drawer organizer that could accommodate my jumbled mess of kitchen utensils, I made my own with this simple DIY home organization project.
Project 5: inexpensive laundry room organization
This is another effective organization project I did in my home that was quick, easy, and very inexpensive. I used an assortment of baskets from the Dollar Tree and labeled them. Almost four years later, this system still works for us. I do, however, have plans to update them soon.
6. Bathroom Cabinet Organization
When I look back at the pictures of my bathroom cabinet, I want to run and hide. It was that bad and embarrassing. The simple addition of a couple of 3-drawer plastic units, and a dollar store shelf, made all the difference. This is a must-see and very effective organization hack.
7. Makeup Drawer Organization
My makeup drawer was a hot mess, and since the day I organized it (and tossed a lot of old makeup! I have been able to keep it organized and clean. At least for months at a time. And re-organizing is a cinch. All thanks to the DIY boxes I made to make drop zones.
