17 Genius Dollar Tree DIY Organization Hacks
Having an organized kitchen can really make a difference in your daily stress level. It’s the place where you and your family spend the most time preparing for all your meals and things need to be accessible.
First, start out by doing some simple decluttering. Go through and see what you really need in your cabinets and what it’s time to let go of.

After you declutter your kitchen make sure to clean the shelves and cabinets by wiping them down with disinfectant sprays. This way you’ll start fresh.
Dollar Tree has tons of great cleaning disinfectant sprays and cleaning supplies too that we’ve tested and love.
Under the Sink
You’ll find lots of different size storage bins at Dollar Tree. I use these to organize all over my house.
You can see in the picture above how I used the baskets to keep all the cleaning supplies organized. I also like that you can pull out a basket and take it with you to different rooms you want to clean.
This seems like a small area but what a difference it makes when you can find the bottles you need quick to clean up a mess in the kitchen.
Organize all those Tupperware tops in your kitchen with a cookie cooling rack. The tops fit perfectly into the slots of the cooling rack.
There are several different options to organize your silverware drawer. You can get a larger divider that holds all your silverware.
Or choose individual storage trays for forks, spoons, and knives. Both work great and it’s just a preference of what you like.

We all have that terrible junk drawer in our house. Get it under control by using small storage bins to hold rubber bands, keys, pens, and all the other clutter you throw in there.
I did this a year ago and I have been able to keep my junk drawer organized. It’s amazing! The main factor is making sure when I add something to the drawer to put it back in the right storage bin.
Keep your cereal organized and fresh longer with a dry food storage container. There see-through so everyone can still see what is inside the container and you’ll stay organized.
While you are decluttering and organizing use shelf liners to keep your drawers and cabinets clean. Dollar Tree has a variety of options from Self Adhesive contact paper with cute patterns to nonslip shelf liners.
I like the nonslip ones better because I can change them out easier but they’re not as cute looking as the contact paper.

Get all your toothpaste, floss, hairbrushes, and more organized in your drawer with these small storage baskets.
The best part is they come 3 for $1. So you can fill up your whole drawer with baskets for $2. No more searching for your dental floss!
Under the Sink
Get the area under your sink organized with a mix of Caddys and Larger Baskets. The caddies are great to store bath toys you want to bring over to the bathtub for the kids.
You can use a filing basket to keep all the big bottles of shampoo and soap organized. I like the file basket because it’s easy to slide out the whole thing when you need bath items.
Keep your bath sponges off the bottom of your bathtub by hanging them up on your shower wall. Use a suction cup hook to hold them up and let the sponge dry out in between uses.
The hooks above worked great on shower walls but not great on cabinets.
A stronger hook to use on cabinet doors is the self-adhesive wall hook. This can be stuck on your cabinet door to hold your hair dryer or curling iron. It would also be a great way to hang cleaning brushes.
Do you find your hair ties all over the bathroom too? Keep them organized by placing them on a carabiner. It’s easy to get the rubber bands off and on and quick to find when you need them.
Add a laundry basket in your bathroom to help keep all the clothes off the floor the kids leave.
Linen Closet Organization
When you open the linen closet does everything fall out and you can’t find what you need?
This was my closet until I decided to get it under control and organized. It seemed like a big task and I kept putting it off but once I started it only took me a half-hour to do.
I got my linen closet under control by using a system of baskets. What I like about the baskets is I can pull out just what I need and easily see what is inside.
To make sure I knew where everything was and to keep up the organization I added labels to each bin. You could use cute chalkboard labels or just tape a piece of paper with a name on it to be quick. I showed you both in the picture above.
To keep it neat fold the towels nicely and stack them. You could also use cloth collapsible bins and roll the towels to keep them organized. It just depends on the size of your closet.
If you don’t have room in your linen closet you can also place these baskets on the floor with towels. It works as a decoration too.
How to Use a Caddy
I love to use storage caddies around the house to get organized. It’s a great DIY organization hack to carry everything you need. You can fill them up and store them on a table, closet, or cabinets.
Then when you need the items just pull out the caddy and take it around the house.
Create a homework station with your caddy. Fill it with pencils, markers, pens, rulers and anything else your kids need for school. Then put it out on the table when it’s time for homework.
Keep all the bath toys in your caddy when the kids are not using them. You can store it neatly away in your cabinet and then bring it out to the tub when it’s bath time.
Or leave the caddy in the bath tub so all the water can drain out of the toys.
Store your caddy under the sink with all your cleaning supplies. When it’s time to clean just bring the caddy with your room to room. No more running back to get the Windex or scrub brushes.
