14. Pantry Perishable Organizer
15. Boxed Food Organizers
Did you know that spaghetti boxes fit perfectly into magazine holders? I didn’t either – and now I do. I love this idea for organizing spaghetti and other longer pastas in their boxes in the cabinet. Instead of stacking those boxes on each other- and incidentally hoping they don’t come crashing down when you open the cabinet door – you can use a plastic magazine rack to keep them perfectly in place.
16. Easy DIY Purse Storage
I have so many clutches. Honestly, I don’t know why I have so many, but organizing them can be really difficult. I love this idea of using plastic magazine racks to keep smaller purses and clutches organized. Just get the clear plastic holders and stand them upright on your closet shelf. Then add your clutches. You can easily see the clutches so you know just which organizer the one you need is in.
17. Eye Shadow Palette Storage
If you tend to own a lot of eye shadow palettes, you may wonder about organizing them. I mean, there’s always the traditional way of hiding them in a drawer or just leaving them on the bathroom counter, but this magazine rack storage is so much better. You can get several palettes in those separated magazine racks and have them right there where you can see them when you need them.
18. Fresh Fruit and Produce Storage
It is certainly true that when fresh fruits are in sight they’re eaten more often. If you tend to have trouble getting the family on the healthy food train, keeping those apples and oranges where they can be seen may help. And, you can easily keep those fruits in sight with a metal magazine rack. Not only do these help you to store and keep fruits organized, if you buy the decorative ones, they also become kitchen décor.
19. Easy Wireless Router Hider
You can easily hide away that router or modem and your cords when you use a magazine rack. Just stick those items and their cords into the magazine holder, leaving enough room to sit it securely on the desk, and the magazine holder puts them completely out of sight. This is a great idea if you’re looking for ways to tidy up your home office and make your desk seem less cluttered.
20. Baking Pan Holder
This one is a bit different. Instead of using those magazine holder racks you see at the Dollar Store, this is an old wooden magazine rack. You can find these at thrift stores like Goodwill and many flea markets. Just repaint – if you need to – and use that magazine rack to hold your baking pans. I can’t tell you how many times I have to reorganize my pots and pans cabinet because I have so many baking pans in there that won’t say put. This is a wonderful way to organize the cabinet and keep those pans where you can easily get to them when needed.
21. Tupperware Lid Storage
If you’ve ever bought Tupperware, you know that the lids are great, but they’re difficult to store. I have so many Tupperware dishes and there are so, so many lids! If you’ve got a plethora of those lids, or any lids to any types of dishes really, you can create a storage compartment on the inside of your cabinet door with magazine racks. They sell those lids holders but honestly, these magazine holders are much less expensive and they do the job just as well.
22. DIY Easy Charging Station
This wooden magazine rack was easily turned into an iPad charging station, and I think it’s perfect. If you tend to have a lot of electronics charging at one time – like a tablet for all of your kids all at once – this charging station is perfect. Plus, it’s really cheap. You can find a wooden magazine rack at a thrift store for around $5 or so. Then you just drill holes in the back for the cords and it will perfectly hold all of those tablets while they charge.
23. Repurposed Magazine Rack Turned Towel Holder
I love repurposing and love the farmhouse, rustic country look even more. This great toilet paper holder made from an old magazine rack treats both of my passions. Plus, it’s really inexpensive and easy to make. There’s actually nothing for you to do unless you want to refinish the rack – or need to for that matter. I think a distressed look would be great if you want that wonderful farmhouse look, but you can just stick the magazine rack in the bathroom the way it is and fill it with rolled towels if you need something in a pinch.
24. Easy DIY Nightstand From Magazine Holders
This easy to build DIY nightstand is made from wooden magazine holders and it’s wonderful. Honestly, I have so many books and things on my nightstand that this additional storage cubby would be so perfect. You stack the two magazine holders on top of each other – securing them together of course – and then add legs. This is so easy and offers such great additional storage. There are holes drilled into the back so that you can easily charge your cell phone or plug in a clock or other item and hide the cords.
25. Genius Laundry Room Hanger Holder
This is the most brilliant idea! Take those wooden or plastic magazine holders and attach them to the wall in the laundry room. Then use them for storing plastic hangers until you need them. Honestly, this is genius. The magazine holders are the perfect size and they easily attach to the wall with a couple of screws. Keep those hangers off the doorknobs and the top of the dryer. Build them their own little house for safekeeping and get that laundry room organized.
