  • Stylish and carefully planned color is a given inside our homes, so why not utilize the same principle when it comes to scheduling? Get started by color-coding your “to-do’s” using strips of patterned washi tape. (image)

  • Instead of letting scarves take up precious drawer space, loop them over an inexpensive towel bar hung inside your closet. It’s a quick and wrinkle-free storage solution that takes only ten minutes to check off your list. (image)

  • If you’re anything like us, your bag collection may have gotten a tad out of control in 2012…Make 2013 the year to get it all organized by transforming a bookshelf into a stylish place to hang and display your collection. (image)

  • Jewelry is one of those things that can add up quickly. Contain your chains with a DIY necklace organizer made from a metal vent cover and vintage frame. For smaller pieces, try repurposing a cookie stand as display-worthy storage. (image)
