One of my favorite ways to organize is by re-purposing items; turning already used items that didn't necessarily start life out as the way I intended it for, and making it fit my needs.

These photo boxes are great for storing our DVD collection. They hold approximately 14-16 DVDs and keep the mess contained. Speaking of re-purposing, this bookcase actually holds all our photo box DVD collection! (this shows only half of our unit.)
Just by rinsing out the nub of wax at the bottom of the jar (I used this tutorial, the step-by-step with pictures was so helpful!) you have a perfect sized container that looks great holding a variety of items. I use mine to house cotton balls but hair ties/bobby pins, q tips, etc. would fit perfectly.
This square wooden wine rack is the perfect size for my daughters shoes. I love the unexpected design element it brings and it just looks great! This is my grandparents so I have no idea when or where they got it from so I linked a similar item and "feel."
And what really is made to house shoes can be used to hold all the things. This one hangs in my daughters' closet and corrals dolls, seasonal scarves and hats and other assorted toys. And sometimes the odd shoe ;)
And there you have it; my re-purposed storage solutions for fun and easy, spring organization! Check out these other amazing bloggers for more cleaning and organizing inspiration!
