ORGANIZATION - Many have made resolutions in the new year to get organized- but there's no need to let organization come at a great cost.  KDFW Consumer Reporter Steve Noviello engaged us in an interactive show and tell to illustrate how common household items you already have can be transformed into storage and organization solutions for free! Low or no cost organization and storage solutions are hiding in your house! He showed us how to use a tension rod under your kitchen sink to hang bottles of cleaners, to use old spice racks to store ties, to use old shoe pouches to store after school snacks, to use an old paper towel holder to keep bracelets or gift wrapping ribbon, and more.
