Organize with REpurpose


When trying to organize your home it is common to justify bringing in even more stuff by way of organization supplies.The intention with these items is always to become more organized, but often these supplies are purchased with little thought to how we actually plan to use them. Oftentimes we find that the supplies' intended purposes do not work the way we expected them to. We try to force ourselves to use the product but eventually give up. The products begin to gather dust along with the items we failed to organize. This is a waste of money and of precious space.

One solution to this problem is repurposing the items you already own or even using things you would consider discarding. Repurposing saves you money and lets you reuse the items that are already sitting around your house taking up space.

Getting organized doesn't have to be expensive. Try a few of these ideas:
