Winter Cleaning and DIYS!

 Sunday, January 6, 2013

What were your new years resolutions? One of mine was to keep my closet and possessions organized and clean this coming year. So behold, Winter Cleaning secrets!

If you fold your clothes to be vertical in dressers, not only will you save space but you can see your clothing more easily! I try to use this technique at school when space is an issue. 

Using a belt hanger for scarves save space and allow me to see my scarves more easily. I picked up a belt hanger for under $10 at marshalls and use it for all of my scarves. 

My sister recently concocted some amazing lip scrubs that cleanse and get rid of dead skin. Its a great idea to keep your skin hydrated and healthy in the cold months and what better way than a homemade scrub! 

Are you an avid jewelry collector like me? Did you know that paper towel holders make bracelet storage easy and decorative? Its nice to be able to see all your arm candy and still be easy to get to! The best part? The holders are easy to put on your table/ dresser and does not take up much space horizontally.

Do you have any tips or fun DIYS that you want to share?

I enjoy making my own scrubs and beauty treatments every so often. And the paper towel holders is a really cool idea.

The paper towel holders idea is genius! I am an avid jewelry collector as well, and have an adorable little vintage bird jewelry tree, but I definitely can't fit everything on it. I use little drawer organizers (from Marshalls and TJ Maxx) for the extra stuff. I like how you can use these to keep pretty bracelets displayed though!

But choosing the right brand is immensely complicated, and making eco-friendly choices can be a distressing task.
