A creative way to organize your make-up is to use organizers from the office department. Buy the containers that hold your pens and use them for all of your brushes or eyeliners. I have one that has a pen holder on the top and then little drawers underneath. So, I can store my liners on the top and then eyeshadow and blush in the drawers. It's easy to keep everything together and stash under my sink when company is over.

If you are one that keeps a lot of make-up - a tackle box is always handy. You can tote it anywhere and it stores everything. It is usually a little cheaper than a make-up tote, too.

You know that cabinet in your kitchen that is just overloaded with all of your pots and pans, or maybe its spilling over with Tupperware? A quick solution for either is to organize the lids! Getting them out of the way allows extra room for your bulkier items. You can do this in a couple ways:

First try getting the wire shelves for the cabinet. You can use them to stack lids on top of, or you can turn the lids on their side and sit them between the wire of the shelf.

Another idea is to get the vertical plate separators. These are the kind that you stand your plates on their sides and it holds them upright. Kind of like books on a shelf. You can also use this concept with your lids.

Finally, the horizontal plate separator is good for your Tupperware. You can stack it up on the shelves and keep it all where you can see it.

On to the pots and pans. If you're like me and don't have the space to hang them from your ceiling like you see in some modern kitchens, try this instead. If you're like me, you have a tiny kitchen with one big cabinet under the counter that has drawers right above it. I took hooks that screw into the walls and screwed them into the bottom of my drawers in the cabinet. That way, my non-stick pans can hang out of the way and not get scratched by the other pans that would normally have to sit inside it.

Vertical plate separators also help with frying pans that are too heavy to hang yet I don't want to sit anything on them because they might scratch. I also took wire shelves and utilized them to help stack pots and pans without having to sit them inside each other.

No pantry space? Me neither! But my friends and I came up with a brillant idea to make up for the lack of space. We took waist high book shelves and put them up against the wall next to our kitchen. We can now put all of our dry goods there. To keep the food out of sight, we hung small curtains on the front of the bookcase and put pictures on the top shelf to make them look more like decorations, than the inside of our pantry.

Need help keeping track of all your bills? Try creating a Bill Paying Schedule.

Create a spreadsheet with a column for all the days in the month (1-31) then a column for Who or What you are paying, then a column for How you will pay it (auto withdrawal, cut check, online bill pay, etc), then make a couple of columns for the preceding months. Then you can list all of your bills by date and how you will pay for them so you can remember if it comes out automatically or if you need to write a check ahead of time. Now, under each month, you can check off your bills as you pay them.

If you are like me, I pay my bills as soon as I get paid. So, under the month columns I stuck a little symbol on the days I get paid so I can budget and see what needs to be paid when and what can wait.

Another tip for paying bills is to utilize your banks online Bill Pay system. If your bank does not have this system, most companies have a website and will let you set up automatic withdrawals from your account. Some companies will even give you a discount for setting this up or "going green" by not getting sent paper statements.

It does take a few minutes to set up your online Bill Pay but once you do, it only takes seconds to pay all of your bills at once, or one at a time. You can even pay ahead of time and post date for when you would like it to come out. Or, you can set them all as automatic and your bills will be paid on time each month without you having to keep track. Some banks even have it set up to send you a reminder when something is due or when something is paid.
