Keeping your home organized on a budget is no easy feat. That’s why we have to pause and celebrate each and every inexpensive organizational find we discover as soon as we come across them. And believe it or not, we actually found a cheap buy on Amazon that can help you organize your bathroom, closet, and kitchen, for just three bucks a pop.
Shower curtain rings, yes, good old-fashioned shower curtain rings. Turns out those cheap plastic rings you use to hang up your shower curtain and liner—like this set of twelve from IKEA on Amazon—are great for organizing all kinds of things throughout your home, it just takes a little imagination. Here are a few clever ways to use them.
1. In the bathroom: Corral everything from hair ties to necklaces and rings by sliding them on a shower ring and hanging them from your towel rack. Or employ one or two extra ones on your shower curtain rod to hang your loofahs and brushes.
2. In the bedroom: Organize your scarves, purses, and ball caps by slipping them into a shower ring and hanging them in your closet. Not only will you be able to show off your accessories in style, you’ll free up some much-needed drawer space.
3. In the kitchen. Need a place to hang your damp dishtowels in a pinch? Simply snap a shower curtain ring around one of your kitchen cabinet pulls to score a mini-towel hanger in seconds.
Still not convinced? What if we told you the 24-piece ($6) set of surprisingly chic clear shower curtain rings is also Prime-eligible? Translation: You can be on your way to a well organized home in just two days (or less) if you’re a Prime member. Don’t worry—you can thank us later.
