There are so many aspects to a wedding. Forgetting about our fragrance can be easy. However, these top tips for finding your perfect wedding scent will make sure that all the boxes are checked in the easiest way possible.
Think About Your Venue
Believe it or not, but your venue can play a significant role when it comes to choosing your perfect wedding scent. Some venues come with incense that can play a major factor while saying “I do” in a vineyard might have you looking for a fruitier smell rather than one filled with floral fragrances.
Look For More Oil
While we might think we’ll have plenty of time to top up on our smell throughout the day, it can be easy to forget about our perfume and focus on the rest of the ceremony. Choosing a scent with more oil than water means your fragrance should last longer and will be activated with movement – perfect for when it’s time to hit the dancefloor.
Let It Sit
Did you know that perfumes are designed to release different layers of their scent throughout the day? That’s right; there’s a reason that your perfume smells a little different after a few hours. It’s important to take your time when choosing a wedding scent as you want to make sure that you like your fragrance all day long and not just when it comes out of the bottle.
Discuss Your Scents
While many couples want to keep their final looks a surprise, it might be time to discuss your smell with your partner before you make it down the aisle. Hopefully, you’ll spend the majority of the day by each one another’s side, so it’s best to make sure that your scents won’t clash.
Step Out The Box
Your wedding day is unlike any typical day. In fact, it can be an out of this world experience for many. Why settle for your daily fragrance? Of course, it’s best to make sure that you feel comfortable with your smell, but choosing something a little different might help the day to feel extra special.
Our fragrance can often enter the room before us, and finding your perfect wedding scent can make sure that everyone knows you’ve arrived. Are we ever fully dressed without our perfume?
35+ Smart People That Put Every Inch of Their Apartments to Use
As days go by, apartments and houses get smaller in size. Too many things, too little space. Fortunately, these people made sure to put every inch of their apartment to use.
Roll With the Punches
There are two types of people in this world. Some fold their clothes neatly and store, while others — the “smarter” kind — know the benefits of rolling clothes. The same applies to towels. Rolling up clothes and towels is a great space-saving technique, not to mention that it does really keep things neat for whatever reason.
Spice Up Your Life
This looks like the kitchen of a professional chef — or a budding one at the very least. Look at the array of spices and herbs decorating the shelves. A major problem with storing so many similar-sized bottles and containers in the pantry is the inconvenience and clutter associated with it.
Unless you know exactly where you stored the oregano out of the 100 other bottles in there, it will take you an annoying amount of time to locate it. So, consider investing in some pull-out organizers like this OP did. It’s definitely a clever solution!
Makeup is all fun and games until the clutter on your countertop makes you want to throw everything on the floor. We get it! In the morning, you just want to powder your nose and walk out the door.
However, keeping things organized helps save time in the long run. You know exactly where everything is, so you can grab what you’re looking for in two seconds. Plus, there’s always the factor of hygiene. This wall makeup organizer is super practical!
Dividing the Clutter
This is the perfect hack for people who simply don’t have enough closet space. Too many clothes for your own liking? Or is your family a big one? These closet shelf dividers are actual game-changers. Before they were added, the stacked clothes on the top shelf looked very messy.
Although folded pretty neatly, they are leaning against each other since there’s not enough support. Thanks to the dividers, you can now separate your jeans, sweaters, shirts, towels, and more.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
You don’t always have to run to IKEA or Costco to find organizing equipment. If you’re crafty enough, there’s plenty of things around the house that can be reused or recycled. Some have already mastered this hack — use old biscuit cans and tins to store sewing equipment and whatnot.
Bet you never thought about using plastic containers this way! This little container originally carried razor blades. It turns out that it makes for a perfect storage container as it can hold mini compacts and/or single eyeshadows. If you don’t own much makeup, try this out.
Maximize the Space
After you’re done using the last of the cabinet space, you can move onto the inside of the doors next. Most people like storing their measuring spoons and cups inside kitchen cabinet drawers but this ingenious hack will make you rethink how you organize.
By trying this, you can save an extra drawer for other purposes. Little hooks and clamps on either side of the doors can accommodate all your measuring cups. You could probably hang up spatulas, whisks, and ladles too.
A Game Changer
Remember those little PVC bags that many of us used as pencil cases back in the day? Well, they can also be used to organize things around the house. We probably wouldn’t have thought about this one, though. For families with children or families that have game nights, puzzles and indoor games are a must.
With this solution, you won’t ever have to search for a Monopoly piece again. Label a bunch of PVC bags and put the pieces in there before storing them in a drawer or box.
Bottle it Up
Families and couples often face this problem — not enough storage space in the bathroom so everything ends up getting cluttered. Sharing a bathroom isn’t easy. Everyone seems to have their choice of product and the top of the sink can only accommodate so much. Tired of the endless columns of bottles arbitrarily placed across the countertop?
You have to try these freestanding countertop shelves. You can stack your toiletries and save a lot of space. If you tend to store makeup in there as well, a few plastic containers with separators could help you further organize.
A Brush With Science
A science enthusiast with amazing makeup skills, one Redditor and Snapchat user decided to take their organization up a notch. They said goodbye to generic makeup storage boxes and containers and instead made their collection “incredibly unique.”
By using old beakers and conical flasks, they’ve turned their makeup room into a mini-laboratory. Well, if you think about it, makeup is a kind of science. You mix and match elements (colors, shades, and textures) to get the perfect solution. Plus, this is a much greener approach.
Are you one of those people who treat their laundry room like a hoarding room? There’s no shame in admitting that even the biggest clean freaks can’t always keep everything completely organized. If Monica Geller faltered, so can you.
One internet user noticed how cluttered the shelves above her washer/dryer looked. With one internet search and an Amazon order, she was able to organize everything to her heart’s desire. Now, all the household items have a place, and it’s much easier to keep track. These cubes can be found everywhere online and are super sturdy.
Here’s something everyone who menstruates should try out. When Flo suddenly comes to visit and you don’t have your menstrual products closeby, disaster is too close for comfort. It feels good knowing that all your goods are in one place — especially in such a time when violent mood swings make even the most mundane activities sour.
This Snapchat user arranged all the menstrual products in the house by storing them neatly in a large container. Instead of spreading them across a few drawers, this is more practical and convenient for daily reference. There’s even room for toothpaste!
Small Space Rolling Cart
Beauty gurus on YouTube have entire rooms and large cabinets dedicated to makeup. Yet, somehow, all their stuff seems to be in perfect arrangement all the time. Apart from the fact that they get professional help in achieving such perfection, it can be pretty annoying seeing your table filled with makeup products.
We love this little rolling cart because it can fit in even the tiniest of spaces, as this picture shows. It’s spacious enough to hold all your things without taking up excess space in the room. A perfect solution for those that hate clutter!
Hats Off to You!
Hats, hats, and more hats! You don’t have to be a teenager in a hipster phase to love a good snapback. However, naturally, given their shape and size, hats aren’t the easiest things to store. If you wear them on a daily basis, you’d want to have them closeby in your closet, perhaps stacked.
Although a decent approach to storing hats, we love this method of using a hanger and some plastic rings. These rings are used to hold the hats in place before the hanger is neatly placed inside the closet or cabinet.
Wireless technology is so important. Not only does it show that technology has progressed beyond our wildest imagination, but it also serves as a reminder of why wireless inventions became so popular in the first place. Wires aren’t bad, technically, but they are notorious for getting knotted and tangled with each other.
Think about all the time you spend detangling your wired headphones. A magnetic cable organizer would be perfect for households and offices that have an alarming number of cables to sort through. Cuts down the hassle in half! Moreover, these can hold backup discs.
Similar to cables, bracelets and necklaces can get tangled from time to time. The thinner the chain, the harder it is to untangle it from the bounds of knots. We do love a set of metal straws that are kinder to the environment but this is a good way to reuse the plastic straws that are lying around the house.
Weave your bracelets and necklaces through straws before closing the locks. You can store these straws on your shelf or on your counter — plus they’re also travel-friendly.
For the Singles
Think about the most embarrassing moments of your life. For many, some of these bad memories are associated with the bathroom. You too would be super annoyed if you couldn’t reach for the toilet paper after finishing your business.
If you live with your family, partner, or have a roommate, they could help you out by handing you a roll. However, this tip is perfect for singles. If you don’t have much space in your bathroom, store your toilet paper in a basket and put it next to the toilet.
Before anything, we must say that this is a toad-ally (ha, get it?) adorable cookie jar. Who even thought about making a biscuit tin in the shape of a frog? It even has a bow around its neck! After getting this cute frog cookie jar, this Snapchat user was unsure of what to do with it.
Since she didn’t have any biscuits, there was no conventional use for it. At the same time, her boyfriend didn’t have bathroom space. Being the clever cookie that she is, she turned it into a holder for all her menstrual products.
Pin it Down
Women apparently lose about two billion bobby pins a year. You’re not the only one tired of wondering where the packet of bobby pins you bought three weeks ago went. These convenient hair clips are devilish little creations that seem to get lost after one use.
This hack from a Redditor’s wife could save you those extra pennies on bobby pins. She sticks the pins to the little magnets on the side of her paper towel holder. That way, she can find one whenever she needs it.
The Drawer of Your Dreams
Moving to a new place can be stressful. Setting everything up will be the least of your problems. After unboxing your belongings, arranging them might take what seems like forever. In fact, many people drag this task out for weeks.
It’s understandable, to be honest. Achieving the same level of organization you had in your past home can be a grueling job. A woman first worked on her bathroom drawer when she got a new place. Menstrual products went in a few slots and the rest of the slots were occupied by scrunchies.
Think Outside the Box
Home crafters, this is your moment to shine! A cricut — which is basically a cutting machine used to cut paper, fabric, felt, and other materials — has become a popular product in households. It makes the organizing process much easier. When you can print labels for your containers, the process is much easier.
Not to mention how designing and printing labels can be a pretty calming activity. This OP’s mother brought her cricut machine over and made labels for their craft bins. The arrangement is so impeccable that we’re honestly a little jealous.
A Painter’s Den
An artistic mind could create remarkable things out of the most humble setups. This is yet another example of that. A painter’s studio probably isn’t the most spic and span place ever, but this Redditor might be one of the neatest out there.
They hung little shelves on the walls of their studio to store bottles of paint. For the tubes, they figured hooks and clamps could do the trick. So, in multiple layers, tubes of paint hang on the walls. Unsurprisingly, the paints are oganized by shades of color.
Generally, utility closets are low on space. Unless you live in a big house, chances are, your utility closet will be just enough to hold a few boxes of toilet paper, a vacuum cleaner, and other household equipment. Have you considered adding a trolley, though?
This Redditor tried it out and it increased their storage space greatly. The multiple layers in the trolley allowed them to store all of their supplies from laundry detergent to disinfectant spray — a neat freak’s dream!
Willing & (C)able
Your profession might require you to work with cables and cords all the time. Or, you’re a natural handyman and like having these things around. One broken line could interrupt the game you were so close to winning, an important meeting, or worse.
You don’t have to store them in drawers. A cord and cable cache like the one in the picture could be the perfect storage for them. Everything is tightly wrapped and put in its place.
Before and After
On the lefthand side of this split, we can see what the linen closet looked like before this Snapchat user worked on it. All the towels, although folded, are messily placed inside. It makes the space appear smaller than it is.
When you can utilize space properly, you can also make it seem larger. A few containers and boxes later, the linen closet looks picture perfect. All the clothes are folded or rolled up on the top shelf while there are multiple labeled units of accessories on the bottom shelves.
Newsflash — a pegboard is the organization tool you were always looking for. These handy boards could be a great addition to your garage, basement, or studio. This Redditor is a wanderlust and loves going on camping trips.
With all the heavy equipment needed to complete a camping trip successfully, they had to come up with an efficient way to store their stuff. Bags of sleeping gear are attached to the floor alongside water bottles, canisters, and more. This would be enough to take up the entire garage.
We all love snacks every now and then. Let’s face it — you want to ditch your diet and have a packet of Doritos at 12 in the morning. Apart from eating, we are obsessed with those food organizing videos taking over TikTok these days, and this seems like a version of that.
This user used multiple OXO containers to store different kinds of snacks. There are biscuits, chips, candies, and more. And now, they have space for so many other things. Who wouldn’t like a drawer like this in their house?
This picture has given us some serious pen envy. The owner of this picture is an avid journaler and they also own a small-lettering design studio — which explains why they have/need so many pens. Then again, storing pens efficiently is challenging.
According to this OP, they got these containers from The Container Store. They aren’t that deep but hold most of their pens properly. The longer ones that don’t fit are kept on top in a separate bin.
On Reddit, there’s an entire section dedicated to people that live for organization. You can find tips and tricks to keep everything in order there. These iDesigner containers are convenient and have plenty of space to offer, making them perfect for storing in the pantry.
As we can see, the fridge shelves are stocked with vegetables, eggs, fruits, butter, and more. The author of this post said that they got them in a set of four from Costco. You wouldn’t be able to store so many things without these boxes.
Dollar Tree Finds
Your local Dollar Tree stores have so many treasures that could really elevate your interior game. These teal and gray bins probably wouldn’t be the most appealing finds for you had you seen them at the Dollar Tree. This proves that you only need a bit of creativity to get the most out of every situation.
The color combination is stunning and looks perfect with a neutral background. Moreover, the Redditor also took the time to perfectly arrange the bins so the highlights are more visible.
Though they aren’t the prettiest to look at, pegboards are convenient and practical. Many people like fitting one in their garage to store tools and gear. This is a smaller one, perfect for households and offices.
If you don’t have enough space in your cabinet to store the scissors, scalpels, or scrapers, attach a pegboard to the side of one cabinet. It saves a ton of space and lets you separate your tools from one another. You could also use these in the craft room to hang up art supplies.
A Satisfying Fit
IKEA is a revolutionary in the field of organizing. They make drawers, cabinets, and literally everything you can use to jazz up your space. The KALLAX series comprises simple, stylish storage shelving that focuses on convenience and functionality. Someone bought large IKEA KALLAX cubes and containers.
Pleasantly enough, the containers fit inside the cubes like a glove. There’s one cube with multiple smaller containers as well! From the looks of it, the top shelf contains notepads. There are pens, tapes, cables, and wires in the rest of the containers.
Costco Never Misses
You have to love Costco! These stores offer so many products needed for everyday life at such cheap prices, and they’re literally everywhere. Take a look at this adorable basket storage unit. The top functions as a cabinet, and the Redditor who bought it used it to display cups and mugs. However, there’s a narrow window in the bottom layer.
They store plates there. Given that it’s Costco, we’re assuming the OP got it at a super affordable price. A few of these could do wonders for your cabinet space.
Prim and Proper
Your laundry room is so much more than meets the eye. Sure, with the washing machine and dryer taking up 90% of the room, it gets difficult to imagine doing much else with it. Many people do have shelves over the machines but they rarely know how to utilize them to perfection.
Switch those flimsy little shelves for these functional wooden cabinets. You can store everything — from cleaning supplies to towels, soaps, and toiletries — inside. Plus, the top of the cabinets can hold stuff as well.
Alternative Vintage Luggage
Don’t be fooled by the humble number of clothes that are hanging inside this closet — this Redditor has a ton of other clothes in their seasonal closet. This, however, is the master closet. They realized that it was just wasting space so they decided to spruce things up.
Instead of using baskets and bins, they decided to use old vintage bags and luggage to store their goods. Honestly, we think that’s an incredible choice. The vintage additions brighten up the room, bringing some much-needed warmth and elegance to the space.
Seasoned Chef’s Pantry
A cricut and one trip to the Dollar Tree are all you need to make your pantry as amazing as this one. Well, you do need to buy the ingredients separately but that’s another story. It would be safe to assume that this Snapchatter loves to cook.
They have an impressive array of spices, herbs, blends, and ingredients. All the glass containers have been labeled along with the larger plastic ones. Thanks to the built-in light settings inside, the setup looks very chic.
The Crafty Nook
Is it just us or was the Groot planter the first thing that caught your eye? Antique furniture is extremely trendy right now. Everyone can’t seem to get enough of the vintage, rustic look. A Redditor saw an opportunity and ran with it.
Multiple shelves are crammed inside this formerly antique cabinet that now serve as a crafts cabinet. You do need flat surfaces to store things that bend easily, and this is an ideal solution. We also love the décor ideas.
Adorable Sock Drawer
This picture made us do a double-take. The resemblance to tennis balls is uncanny. Some people do prefer folding their socks while others tie the ends of the pair together and stash it inside their drawer.
Sock drawers aren’t generally organized — at least for most people. When you fold socks up into little balls and store them in one box, they take up less space and are easier to find. You will never lose a single sock again.
Unique Tampon Holder
Since 1947, Barbicide has been the disinfectant solution every barber or cosmetologist uses. If they don’t use it, they definitely still know about it. Who knew old Barbicide jars could double as a tampon holders? It’s crazy how people can come up with the most innovative ideas when they have to.
Running short of bathroom space, one Redditor had to find a nifty way to store their menstrual products. Tampons are generally easier to store but this is still a great technique. Imagine what a remarkable addition this could be to public restrooms!
When You’re Tall
Sorry to the short folks — this tip will only work if you’re tall! After they ran out of cabinet space, this internet user decided to change their perspective in order to fix their issues. This fancy zig-zag cubical spice rack is mounted on the wall and can hold an impressive amount of spice containers.
So they could keep track of all the spices, they labeled the top of the containers. They said that this is actually five racks stacked on top of each other — three of which they purchased from eBay.
Let This One Sink In…
If you have a ton of space under the sink in your house or apartment, consider yourself truly lucky. Due to overcrowding of wires and pipes under the sink, there’s hardly ever space to store anything, but there will always be nifty people who find a way to utilize the few inches of space available.
Lazy Susans, hooks, and plastic containers are used to store cleaning supplies in this household. We can also see a bunch of other items such as disinfectant spray, wipes, dishwashing liquid, and more.
Have you wondered how you could literally double the storage space in your closet by stacking things? We use this method all the time when storing clothes or makeup. However, it can also work for other things. If you don’t have cabinets, here’s something you could try.
These plastic stackable drawers can help you make the most out of any storage space. Just take a look at how many things this user has been able to store using this technique, not to mention that it keeps things super organized! The wicker baskets are filled with TP, paper towels, and bathroom cleaner while the plastic containers hold medicine, travel products, grooming items, and more!
Nowadays, technology is advanced enough to capture an image that shows what dreams are made of — in this case, for a stationery lover. Pens of all different sizes, shapes, colors, and flows. However, with that many pens, organizing everything can be tricky. Have you ever considered using the boxes that your phones and technological gadgets were packaged in?
Rather than throwing those boxes away, you could use them to organize your desk drawers, just as this OP did. Now, they’ll never have to search for a highlighter or Sharpie again, because there’s a place for everything!
