Frugal DIY Home Storage Ideas

Frugal DIY Home Storage Ideas
  • Opening Intro -

    You might be in need of some do-it-yourself home storage ideas if you are worrying less and less about your dirty carpet because you cannot even see it underneath the clutter!

    Worry no more.


There are some great frugal ways to utilize the space in your home without needing a second home for storage or a bulldozer to get everything out. Below are some frugal ways of getting the best use out of your space and creating more storage. They are all affordable, so if they do not work, you are not losing time or money. 

The Bathroom

Invest in some cheap towel racks that hook directly on the bathroom cabinet doors. This keeps your wall from having screw holes in them and lowers the profile of your towels. This gives your bathroom a bigger feel. Next, buy a cheap storage unit that goes over or beside your toilet for storing bathroom items. A shower caddie can be purchased for just about nothing and will organize your tub or shower. For your bathroom soap, toothbrushes and toothpaste, buy a stackable unit so that you have a lot more counter space. 

The Kitchen

Besides using a lot of stackable containers and hanging your pots and pans, there are other ways you can organize your kitchen. Adding some rolling pantry shelves will give you lots of storage room. The unit can be spun around sideways or slid right out of view when not in use. Inside your kitchen cabinets, utilize expandable “steps” for your spices and cans. There are also shelves that fold out in the same way a roll away bed does. These little inventions can actually double the space that is usable in your cabinets for storage. Using a large plastic bag dispenser mounted to the wall will free up the storage space in a cabinet or drawer where your mountain of grocery store bags are currently stored.


Using some space saver hangers will allow you to hang your clothes vertically and horizontally. This will give you space for two to three times as many items of clothing in the closet. Mount a trouser rack to your wall to accommodate at least 10 pair of pants without using any of your closet bar space. There are several cheap shoe racks you can find on the market today. Some are free-standing, some are mounted to walls and some hang on the back of the closet door. Find one that works best for you. 

All of these are affordable do-it-yourself ideas for added home storage. You can even find some heavy-duty wall racks that are designed to hold heavy detergent bottles without harming your walls. Think about jewelry racks and containment boxes you can slide under the bed. Using some of these home storage ideas will go a long way when it comes to cleaning up some clutter and having a more presentable living space.
