Under Sink Organization
The problem with storage under the sink is that you usually end up with a large collection of spray bottles and other cleaning supplies in one big messy pile. To stop you from feverishly searching for your cleaning supplies every time you open the cabinet doors, DIY some storage to the inside of the doors. Narrow shelves and baskets are great for holding cleaning supplies, so install a couple of these on the inside of both doors. This way you will be able to see everything in front of you and not have to sift through a pile of items under the sink everything time you need something.

Magnetic Make-up Board
Keep all of your make-up in one convenient place with a fab magnetic board.

Tidy up your refrigerator and make everything easy to find by grouping food and drink together using plastic bins. Small plastic bins and containers which are suitable for storing in the refrigerator can be found at discount home furnishing stores. Split the contents of your refrigerator into different food categories, and then store each collection of similar food in a plastic container before placing the containers on the shelves of the fridge.
