50+ DIY Organization Ideas for Every Room

You know that one moment after you’re done cleaning where your house is perfectly organized.

Not one item is out of place. It’s perfect.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t last long.

This year I am on a quest to have my home organized so that everything has a neat, organized place. No more messy drawers, packed closets, nor random items that just seem to collect.

Of course, Marie Kondo is helping us out because I’ve finally been able to get rid of some unnecessary items (If you haven’t watched or read Tidying Up, get on that 🙂 )

So today, I’ve compiled 50+ DIY organization ideas to help us all in our quests to keep an organized home. There are some awesome storage and organization DIY projects, so be sure to check them out.

Lots of ideas for DIY organization, closets, shelves, and more

Organized by room, here are dozens of DIY organization ideas for every room in your home.
