Get Organized Today – Upcycled Home Office Storage Hacks
I’m stuck on the fact that there’s just got to be a better way to get my home office organized without having to spend big bucks or an exorbitant amount of time doing so.
That’s why I love the following upcycled ideas for office storage. Not only can I get my space in shape with things I already have around the house, but I’m also knocking off my list to finally clean up my office once and for all. Sweet!
Here are my favorite upcycled home office storage hacks:
1. Binder Clip Tech Cord Holder
Don’t you just love this? You don’t have to crawl under your desk anymore to fight with tangled tech cords. This super savvy hack only requires a basic office staple (no pun intended), so you can finally get those wires organized.

2. Muffin Tin Desk Supply Organizer
Sometimes organization can come from the most wonderful sources – your kitchen. Got school supplies that need to be put in their place? Or, a million and one office supplies scattered here and there? Try using an old muffin tin. It fits neatly into most desk drawers–or keep it accessible on your desktop.

3. Stackable Mason Jar Art Cubby
Whether upright or in this case, lying on their side, this stackable mason jar art cubby is perfect for tight spaces. And, if you are even more adventurous, vary the size of your jars as you stack them.

5. Dish Rack File Holder
You might think the old dish rack has fallen by the wayside, but no more. This fabulous hack keeps files in perfect order, as well as your pens and pencils.

6. Toilet Paper Roll Pen and Marker Holder
Corral your pens and markers with this hip toilet paper roll pen and marker holder (try to say that 3 times fast). Like the name says, it’s made with an old cardboard box and toilet paper rolls. You can coordinate the exterior of the box by wrapping it in leftover wall paper or scrapbook paper.

7. Spice Rack Organizer
Here’s another idea for storing your office supplies (I can’t get enough of these ideas, if you haven’t guessed!) Enlist the help of an old spice rack. I love the one below because it uses clear glass jars so you can see what’s in each one.

8. Cereal Box Mailbox
Again, here’s a super craft/hack using a cereal box. This time, it’s upcycled to make a shabby chic mailbox.

9. Magnetic Bin
If you have little space, why not think wall space. These super paper bins made once again from cereal boxes hang perfectly using magnets. Decorate each bin with old contact paper.

10. Desk Drawer Organizer
Okay, I promise this is the last hack using cereal boxes, but hey, you can see how truly versatile they really are–besides holding cereal, of course. This time, the boxes are cut down to make a nifty desk drawer organizer. Be inspired by the before and after pic, too!

11. Faux Galvanized Storage Boxes
These faux galvanized storage boxes can be made with any size cardboard box. In this instance, see how retro they look with a little aging and a well-placed shipping tag.

12. Mod Podge Desk Organizer
I’m a fan of Mod Podge, so it goes without saying that I had to share at least one upcycled office hack with this super product. Don’t you just love the color pallet? Pretty in pink.

13. Chicken Wire Memo Board
I’m sure every household has an old frame or two lying around. But what if you could upcyle it with a little chicken wire and some old clothes pins? You can with this simple tutorial.

14. Weathered Window Memo Board
And, following in line with the frame idea, is this really cool idea of reusing an old weathered window as a memo board. I’m loving the hooks at the bottom to hang keys or scissors, as well as the cork inserts.
