Ladies can often struggle to  find practical solutions to store their necklaces.  However this method not only keeps your necklaces from cluttering up the dressing table but it is a pretty decoration for your wall!

Buying a few clear airtight containers or recycling large glass jars is an excellent way to store your dry ingredients. It is a much more practical method when it comes to organising your cupboards and you can see more clearly if you are running low.

Do you have very limited storage available in you home?  If you have a stair case you could perhaps use the stairs as an additional space to organise shoes or even jackets and clothes.

People with an attic roof can sometimes struggle to find storage cupboards that make the most of the space available. Here is a great solution!
