25 brilliant ideas for storing small things

All of us keep a lot of different tiny things at home that we use every day. Just look at how many tubes, vials, hair pins and jewelry some girls have! Sometimes we can’t find the thing we’re looking for among all our stuff for hours on end. Sounds familiar, right?

Bright Side collected some great ideas on how to organize the things in a way that will keep them within reach but without taking up too much space. I’m going to try all of them this week!


An old tea set or unnecessary cups can become beautiful decor elements to organize all your jewelry.

One simple hanger can be an excellent jewelry holder.

You can use cross-stitching cloth to store your earrings. If you don’t have this craft, simply stretch a piece of fabric over a wooden frame. The holder is ready!

Put additional hooks on the door of your cupboard to keep all your chains and necklaces in order. Now they will never get tangled up again.

A multi-level fruit tray or a muffin tray can become a home for your rings and brooches.

Sun Glasses

You can insert a piece of paper in a photo frame, make two holes, and fix your glasses on them.

The kitchen rails can help you keep belts, glasses, and other things in one place.


If you place a magnetic board in a frame and glue tape under the jars, you will get a nice holder for eyeshadows and blushes. You will never lose them again!

Try to store cosmetics in a multi-level candy vase or fruit tray — it's very convenient!

This is not a special accessory for storing eyeshadows, it's simply an ice cube tray.

Did you know that a paper organizer can be specially designed in a way to store lipsticks, nail polish, and lip glosses?

Cotton sticks and cotton discs

Place small jars in your bathroom, and the problem of where to store cotton sticks is solved!

Colorful flower pots can become a bright interior decoration. Also, they will put you in a good mood every morning.

Or you can simply buy special cotton ball and cotton stick holders in the shape of animals. Aren’t they the cutest things you’ve ever seen? I want the hedgehog!

Hair dryer and Curling Iron

A paper folder is a great solution to keep curling irons and hair straighteners in one place.

You can easily place combs and hair sprays on the door in a special organizer like this.

...or on hooks on the door of your cupboard.


Magnetic disks for storage nails and screws are also perfectly suitable for hairpins and other metal stuff.

Use magnetic tape to organize scissors, eyelash curlers, and wire cutters.

Using an empty Tic Tac box is a brilliant idea to hold small hairpins.

Cosmetic Brushes

A case for glasses is a perfect place to keep cosmetic brushes. It’s an irreplaceable necessity while traveling!

Cups, glasses, and jars are also very useful things to keep brushes within reach.

If you don't have an organizer for your brushes, you can easily use a bamboo napkin for them.


A pipe, rope, wooden clothespins, and a little ingenuity are all you need to create your own artwork!

Simply hang your hats on small cloves or hooks above the door in the hallway. This is a beautiful and functional idea!
