I’ve had a lot of trouble organizing my apartment and supplies since I moved off of campus. Many times it’s a hassle to repair or even replace the many desks, cabinets, and houseware when they break or discolor. However, I’ve found that many solutions can be found from the local dollar store. Dollar store crafts are a great and inexpensive way to solve apartment/home/dorm economics issues and there are so many varieties of supplies available for the normal college student. For instance, Traditional Home Magazine has ranked dollar store crafts from Dollar Tree as a new and innovative way for parents to quickly and effectively clean up after a mess, and whether you need kid’s drawers, spice kits, or bath toys, dollar stores will always have something substitutable. It’s a fun way to improve the little things in your house, dorm, or apartment without spending a lot of money.
Dollar stores are great ways to find amazing deals on items that could substitute for supplies that could cost up to ten times more at a department store. DIY dollar store organizing can be used to find items that could be beneficial for you. Dollar stores hold many types of overlooked supplies that can be used to immediately improve the décor of your home.
Organizing with dollar store items isn’t just something for cash-strapped college students either. If you’re low on cash, or just need to replace something there are many items to choose from. For instance, there’s many creative ways that dollar store organizing can make a difference in your home. Magnetic strips can be used to hold up metal bobby pins or utensils. Hanging baskets can be a great way to save time on laundry. Large Ziploc bags can be a great way to contain clothes on a long trip or transport items to another place.
There are so many ways to use dollar store items that I can’t even begin to list the possibilities. They are a great adventure and creative experience and as much as I like saving a bit of money, I love being innovative with otherwise ordinary items more than anything else. There’s nothing better than the moment when you have a creative spark.
