Three Unexpected Uses for Familiar Things

Written by 

In your quest for housekeeping and organization, have you ever repurposed something interesting? Some of the most creative innovation arises from a need that is met with a repurposed solution. Everyone likes to have something in their home that makes people stop and say, “I wish I had thought of that!”

You can find lists of repurposed items with a simple search, but here are three favorites from across the web:

Lazy Susan

A Lazy Susan is an interesting tool anyway, just ask your children! You likely use it mostly in the kitchen to keep condiments in reach of everyone at the dinner table or to make spices and cooking supplies easy to grab.

Take the Lazy Susan out of the kitchen, and it suddenly has a plethora of uses. The most useful and interesting is right down the hall in the bathroom. 

To Try: Put a Lazy Susan under your bathroom sink to keep yourself from digging for the new bottle of soap or shaving cream.

Wall Hooks

Hooks are useful no matter where you put them—there's always something that would be better off being hung on a hook. From keys to coats to towels, hooks have spent some glamour time in nearly every room.

However, most bedrooms don't get a lot of love from wall hooks, and it's time to change that.

To Try: Hang hooks next to your bed or dresser, and use them to hang scarves, ties, or jewelry.

Shoe Holder

A shoe holder that hangs over the door can be a real space saver in a closet, but that's not the only place it can go. Sure, it does a great job keeping shoes together and off of the ground, but it can be moved from room to room with no problem!

As you do your crafting or cooking, do you have places for all of your spice containers and small tools, or do you end up knocking many of them down in search for one?

To Try: Hang an over-the-door shoe holder in the kitchen or in the room where you craft, and use it to hold small items. The organization aspect is brilliant and frees up other space in your house.

Once you get these things beautifully organized,, call maid services to get the rest of the house clean enough to match!
