If you’re looking for a small storage basket to organize your towels, linens, or crafts, I suggest picking up Dollar Tree storage bins. Similar bins can cost $7 at other retailers.


2. Fill Dollar Tree book bins with school supplies.

If you think outside of the box (like that storage humor?), you can really maximize your money by using the Dollar Tree book bins to hold homeschool supplies, toys, folders, and even textbooks. These bins could easily run several dollars each, so picking one up at a dollar store is your best value solution.

While you’re in the spirit of saving money, did you know that these stores accept manufacturer coupons? Yep — and you may even score free stuff at Dollar Tree if you play your coupons right.


3. Make a Dollar Tree DIY fast-food condiment holder.

These inexpensive trays can help you quickly organize any drawer or countertop and also save you money. As far as Dollar Tree organization goes, the 3-compartment storage trays are sturdy and easy to clean. Now you can stash those hot sauce packets and ranch sauces in a decorative tray instead of a Ziploc bag.


4. Make daily pill (or jewelry) organizing easier with a Dollar Tree pill container.

For a Dollar Tree bathroom organization idea, pill organizers are great for packing your daily medication. You can also repurpose them for earrings when you travel. They work just as well as the Target or Walmart options but are less expensive for your everyday use.



5. Use 3-ring binders for DIY cookbooks.

Buying office and desk supplies should be on your most basic Dollar Tree organization hacks agenda. Compared to other retailers, these 1-inch, three-ring binders can run from $2 to $4 each. While you’ll probably only have a few colors to choose from, you’ll still save big by shopping at the dollar store. Use this tip to organize recipes, estate planning documents, or other general paperwork.

You 100% should be getting these at a dollar store. If not, you’re going to spend $10 more at other retailers to get a very similar product.

Some reviews expressed concerns about the rack’s ability to hold heavier items, like bathroom towels or robes. Others said they have no problems with it. I’m pretty sure that this Dollar Tree storage solution can handle the job.


7. Keep bathroom organization simple with Dollar Tree storage jars.

These make great containers to hold things like cotton balls, muffin cups, or even loose change. Although big-box stores and department stores may offer a more decorative jar, Dollar Tree storage jars will save you enough to make up the dollar difference.


8. Use Dollar Tree storage cubes for pantry organization.
