DIFFERENT WAYS TO ORGANIZE YOUR POTS
USE COMMAND HOOKS
Command hooks are the best ways to organize certain things around your home and pots and pans are some of them. Just hang a couple of command hooks on your kitchen walls and hang some of your pots and pans on them.
PAN AND POT ORGANIZER
You can get a pots and pan organizer at your local store or online. When you have one of these you can store some of your pots and pans in them. This will give you more space inside your kitchen.
GROUP THEM TOGETHER
By this, I mean that you should put all the pots and pans together and categorize them. For example, all the frying pans are stacked together, the boiling pots together, etc.
HANG SOME OF YOUR POTS AND PANS BEHIND THE CABINET DOOR
Get two command hooks and hang them behind each of the cabinet doors. Place the pots and pans onto the command hooks. This will save you some space inside your cabinet.
Papers can be found almost anywhere in most people’s homes. So if you find some unwanted paper in your living room the best thing to do is just to get rid of them.
OLD UNWANTED BOOKS
You might not even want to do this but sometimes you gotta let go. Sometimes you have to ask yourself “When is the last time I read some of these books? Do I actually need them?”. When you ask yourself these questions you’ll start to realize that most of the books that you keep in your living room are pretty much useless to you.
Go through the chords in your living room and check the ones that you aren’t actually using. Sometimes when there are a lot of chords bundled together in one place you’ll find out that there is a couple of them that aren’t even been used.
It’s Always good to throw away unwanted stuff and unused DVDs are one of them. You can either give them away to a friend or family or just dump them.
Try to look for actual trash. This means to look for stuff like snack bags, empty bottles, etc. When you find them just throw them away in the trash can.

USE IT TO CLEAN TILE GROUT
Get a small container and mix 4 tbsp of cream of tartar and 4 cups of vinegar together. After doing this get an old toothbrush (dip it inside the mixture) and use it to scrub the tile grouts. Be careful and make sure not to use this mixture on tiles that are easily damaged. After you scrub the tile grouts, get a damp cloth and wipe away the mixture residue.
CAN BE USED TO CLEAR/CLEAN YOUR DRAINS
Mix together 4 tbsp of cream of tartar with 2 1/2 cups of vinegar. After mixing the two pour the mixture into the drain then use warm water to flush it down.
USE IT TO REMOVED STAINS

Doing this will definitely get rid of the stains.
USE IT TO CLEAN STAINLESS STEEL
Mix 1 cup of vinegar, 3 cups of water, and 6 tbsps of cream of tartar in a dish/bowl. Dip a cleaning sponge into the mixture and use it to clean your stainless steel appliances.
USE DISH SOAP
Squeeze around 5-7 drops of dish soap (dawn)into the toilet. Then let it sit there for 15-20 mins. Then add some warm water into the bowl and let it sit there. Give it some time and your toilet will begin to unclog.
Do the same thing I did with the dish soap except for this time just use 3 cups of vinegar.
This method isn’t really all that effective but you can still try. Just use the toilet brush to clean inside the drain and hopefully it helps to clear it.
Just pour around 1 cup of Drano max build-up remover into the bowl and let it sit there until your toilet is unclogged.
SPRAY WITH VINEGAR
Just spray the areas where you normally see ants gather. If you have a garden that’s prone to ants and other insects just spray the leaves and the roots of the plants and that should keep them away for a while.
DIY ANT REPELLANT
What you need:
- 2 TBSP of Borax
- 1/2 cup of warm water
- 1/4 cup of sugar
Mix the ingredients together and place the mixture into a small lid container. Then place the container where you normally see ants. All the ants will come running towards this mixture but will get destroyed doing so.
USE A DRAWER ORGANIZER
Using a dresser organizer is a great way to sectionalize your clothes in your drawers. It also makes your drawers look way more organized. You can get your drawer organizer right here. Be sure to measure the height and width of your drawers before you buy.
To make your own DIY version all you need to do is, get 3 – 4 pieces of cardboard and set them vertically inside your drawers to make sure they fit (also make sure they hit the back and front of the drawers). This will also give you a good idea of how they should look. Now get another 2-3 pieces of short cardboard and put them vertically in between the other cardboard boxes that were in the drawers (make sure that the new cardboard pieces are glued in the middle of the other cardboard boxes).
After doing this you will now have your very own drawer organizer.
FOLD CLOTHES PROPERLY
All you need to do is make sure that you fold your clothes enough so that they don’t take up too much space. A folding trick I know is that you can fold then roll them up. This will make you have even more space.
GROUP ITEMS BY CATEGORY
This really simple just put tops together, underwear together, etc. If you want to get even more creative you can sort by colors instead. But be sure that you have enough space for that.
HANG SOME CLOTHES IN THE CLOSET
This is what I do for all the clothes that I go out in. Just simply hang them in your closet. This will make your drawers look organized and have more space.
