1. Garbage bag hack

Recycle the paper box and place your garbage bags in a cute container. You'll be able to feed the roll through the bin's handles and grab a bag as you need it. Who doesn't appreciate a little something chic...even if it's under the kitchen sink?!

2. Kitchen essentials hack

Keeping aluminium foil, plastic wrap and the like orderly is a challenge, especially when you close the drawer and the boxes flip-flop. Since you're busy reading your magazines anyway — especially your favorite magazine, Real Homes — use those periodical holders in the kitchen instead of your WFH office.

3. Refrigerator storage hack

Sometimes when we're organizing and decorating, we often forget about vertical space. There are a few items to help make that task a little easier, and this slider organizer is one of them. We also pulled together our other valuable fridge buys. Your next Trader Joe's run is going to look so much neater — trust us!

4. Entryway storage hack

Keys, Metrocards, chargers — you always seem to have a lot of goods right as you walk in the door. Setting aside a designated spot at the entryway for those necessities (ones that you're more than likely to misplace anywhere else in the house) will save you a lot of trouble in the long run.

5. Bathroom cabinet hack

The inside of bathroom cabinets are the stuff of nightmares. Rather than have your toiletries scattered about, throw in a small shelving unit or stackable bins to keep 'em situated. Plus, it's an easy way to take stock of what you have and what you need ahead of your next grocery store run.

6. Linen hack

This clever trick makes linen storage a whole lot simpler. It reminds us of those middle school days when we had a binder dedicated to each subject. For those who are not terribly fond of folding (guilty), we've included a storage box that will help get the job done, too.
