Our organizing pro Peter Walsh is back with five life-changing tips that will help you achieve your New Year’s decluttering resolutions – and none of them will break the bank!

Tip 1: DIY Recipe Holder

If you are preparing a recipe from a magazine, an index card or a printout, Peter has an amazing hack for you. Just take a pants hanger, clip the recipe onto it, and hang it from a cupboard knob! Now you have your hands free to cook, and won’t dirty up your recipe!

Tip 2: Super-Easy DIY Dry Erase Board

Peter’s next tip is pretty unbelievable – it’s a DIY white board! He heads over to the thrift store, picks up a cheap frame, then puts a piece of Wallpaper inside. Now, you can write directly on the glass with dry erase markers! Wipe off with a piece of paper towel. Brilliant!

Tip 3: Maximize Closet Space with a Chain Hanger

Peter shows you how to take a $2.50 piece of chain from the hardware store, and use it to create a cascading clothes hanger. This is perfect to use to store out-of-season clothes at the back of your closet, making more room for your in-season wardrobe.

Tip 4: Organize Your Purses with an Office Filing Rack

Peter shows you how to use a simple wire desktop file organizer to organize your small clutch purses. So handy!

Tip 5: Use Simple Hooks to Organize Your Jewelry

If you have a tray that is overflowing with jewelry on your dresser or bedside table, we’re about to change your life! Peter shows you how to use simple hooks to keep your bracelets and necklaces untangled and easy to find!
