Do you have some old (fruit or milk) crates? Or you just need a practical (and low budget) storage (organizing) system? Try out this brilliant woodworking idea: the crate bookshelf! You can combine the crates in any shape that fits .
A good idea for a small bathroom, under hanging shelves for things like cotton balls, cotton swabs, etc. Also great in the kitchen, for a spice rack over the stove. Just hang jars from bottom of the cabinet.
