You can dust and shine all day long, but your home won’t really feel clean until the clutter is gone! Use your DIY skills to get rid of these four messes:

Kitchen Clutter. Sometimes the simplest ideas are the most brilliant – like this tin organization idea from A Pretty Cool Life. All you need for this project are magnets, some glue and several attractive tins (spice tins are perfect). Glue your magnets to the back of your tins and let them dry. Then, fill them with pens, Post-it notes or anything else that suits your fancy.

Desk Mess. Even if you don’t have a paper mountain problem, you probably still have a bunch of stuff hanging out on your desk. Keep the tape, important folders and pens under control by stealing Live Laugh Rowe’s organization secret: a dish rack! Some dish racks come ready-made for your desk, but some may need a few added accessories. Kelly at Live Laugh Rowe found her perfect dish rack at World Market.

Spice Disarray. Have you ever purchased an extra jar of paprika because you couldn’t find the old one in your cabinet? Always a bummer. Your spices may have started out organized, but each new jar adds a little more disorder. Reclaim your rack and stop buying extra spices by organizing them in plain sight. These baby-jar organizers from One Lucky Pickle live on your refrigerator, so you’ll never accidentally double up on paprika again!

Belt Chaos. Belts are probably the hardest fashion accessories to keep organized. Either they’re all on one hanger so you have to uproot the entire stack to get to the bottom, or they’re spread out all willy-nilly in drawers and boxes, making them impossible to find. End the belt anarchy by making this easy DIY organizer from Shanty 2 Chic. You’ll never lose your cheetah-print belt again!
