Save money on storage by using every closet, nook, and cranny in your home to keep it organized and free of clutter.  If you have a dark closet or other area that is dark, purchase some battery operated lights to illuminate the space when you want to find something. 


Attach them to the wall and push on them when you need light.  They are a thrift conscious way to make your home more livable

Frugal footnotes:

Here are some additional frugal tips for finding more storage in your home.


- Buy rubber bins that roll under your beds or build your own.
- Install shelves over doorways.
- Remove some of the drywall between the studs in your home and frame it out for shelving.  This works well in the kitchen to store small things like spices.
- Hang shelves from the ceiling in the garage.
