Spring is definitely in the air – it’s been in the 70s and 80s this week and yesterday as Bubbles and I took a stroll around our neighborhood, we saw lots of trees and flowers blooming.

Organization Hacks

When the weather changes like this (even though it’s likely temporary), it gets me thinking about spring cleaning and getting organized. Which is why we’ve chosen spring cleaning and organization hacks as the theme of the weekly Pinterest meme that Matter of Cents and I co-host.

Below are some of my favorite spring cleaning and organizational pins from Pinterest. And keep an eye out for my upcoming cleaning and organization series!

Organization Hacks

Smart Pantry Storage:  Hang your measuring cups and spoons on the inside of a cupboard door! Not only will this help free up drawer space, it keeps them in easy reach while you’re cooking, too.

Smart Pantry Storage:  Print labels for your containers (like these plastic cereal keepers) and you’ll be able to quickly determine contents at a glance. Bonus points for kids being able to more easily put things away too!

Closet Clutter-Buster:  If you have a handbag collection, try using shower curtain rings to keep them tidy! Just slide them over the tension bar in your closet and then hang them up.

Closet Clutter-Buster:  I live in flip-flops, so this tip is one I’ll be trying. Use cheap wire hangers to keep they tidy and organized.

Clutter-Buster:  Did your spring cleaning reveal a stack of magazines large enough to hide a small child?  Try this shutter magazine organizer if you’ll need them later, or even better – just toss them!

Space-Saving Storage:  If you need a place to stash your seasonal items (or stuff you can’t bring yourself to toss), look up! Utilize the space in your garage above your car for extra storage.

What are your favorite organization hacks?
