Budget-Friendly Organizing Ideas
Organizing a small house on a budget can be done with the creative DIY ideas on this page.
Just keep in mind that it might take a bit longer to complete everything if you’re trying to do everything on a limited budget (or for FREE).
You will need to determine how much money you want to invest and the projected timeline. For some folks this will mean setting aside a once-per-year payment, such as a holiday bonus, while others use their weekly paycheck to cover it.
In that case, you will need to decide if you are going to save money up before you begin or whether you want to organize a timeline that shows what you need and a reasonable guideline for getting there.
Maximizing Space Ideas
If you own the house it will open up more avenues than if you are renting your home. Maximizing space in a small house can include design changes to the building itself that will create additional space without adding any square footage. Many types of folding and spinning shelves fall within this category.
However, even if you rent, you might be able to convince your landlord to let you add them. Only do this if you have a good rapport. Even then, the owner can say no for other, unrelated reasons.
Small House / Big Family Ideas
For those organizing a small house for a large family, it is important to provide everyone with some space of their own.
While you might not be able to give everyone their own bedroom, you can put some tall cube-shaped shelving or cases in or near the entryway. Everyone can pick a cubbyhole near their eye level and use it for dropping things off when walking through the door and for things they intend to take back out. Not only can this help with morale, it keeps stuff off of the floors, chairs, tables and other flat surfaces of the home.
Designate specific uses for the extra cubbyholes. For example, you might use one to store anything related to a community service position and another for library returns.
Storage Hacks for Small Homes
One of the most affordable and useful small house storage hacks is to take advantage of under-bed storage. There are many ways that this area can be used, including to store out-of-season items. For best results, use a vacuum suction device to reduce bulk.
