22 Home Organization Hacks That Work Better Than a Magic Wand
Finding a place for storing things, especially in small apartments, is really hard — different shelves usually take a lot of space themselves and don’t make the place more beautiful. So, if you own a small apartment, it can be a real challenge to find a good place for something and then find a necessary item. However, there is a solution: the modern world offers a lot of different ways that make the place both beautiful, cozy, and convenient to use.
Bright Side is going to show you different shelves, organizers, and different things that any house needs.
1. For belts and ties
It tends to be difficult to find enough space for ties and belts: the former get crumpled and the latter should be rolled which may lead to the appearance of cracks on the leather. An organizer can help you both keep these things safe and free up some space in your wardrobe.
2. For shoes
Shoe boxes take up a lot of space and the shoes themselves can be damaged. These special things don’t take up much space and can protect your shoes and boots from getting deformed.

A simple metal shelf with a suction cup can help you get your things in order in the kitchen and sponges with small bottles in the bathroom will always be easy to reach.
