S-hook jeans

With the New Year, many are looking for ways to organize their homes. From the closet to the kitchen, 

here is a list of organizational hacks to make home living a little bit easier going into 2018.


Water bottles
Water bottle storage

Find a place for a magazine holder in your cabinet and flip it on its side, with the opening facing outward. Insert water bottles, stacking on top of one another and to keep them from falling over or taking up unnecessary space. You can also decorate the magazine holder with colorful paper or patterns to brighten up the kitchen.
