LEGO Minifig as Cable Holder: Every Cord is Awesome ~ Modernistic Design
How AWESOME (Sorry, I could not resist!) is this idea to use Lego figures to hold smaller cables? I think very awesome. Apparently, all you need is some Sugru Hardware compound (which sounds like some super neat-o stuff) and some Lego people to make your desk space a little more Awesome!

DIY Painted Cactus Garden : Craftberry Bush
Although not technically container gardening, I could not resist sharing this cactus garden made of painted rocks. Simple enough for a child, but with the potential for an adult to really get in there with detail and shading. It’s just so darling!

DIY Cute Containers From Plastic Bottles : Denise Meneghello
Using an iron to smooth out pretty recycled bottle containers is pretty clever. I have yet to try it, so I’m not sure if it leaves any bits on your iron, but I can’t see a quick melt leaving behind anything that couldn’t be cleaned off when cooled down.
The tutorial is in Portugese (I believe) but the photos are pretty self explanatory.

Hanging boot organizers! I had no idea these existed. You can either purchase them for super cheap: $11.99 via Amazon or you could easily DIY yourself up one with an upcycled comforter bag or an old sheet or some great fabric.
Edit : Someone asked “These have bad reviews on amazon… Why would this be a suggestion?”
My answer is simple…I find storage options and I share them. I don’t always think to read the reviews, I’m guilty of that with my own purchases. This product in particular, I didn’t think to read the reviews because I have used the shoe versions of these and they worked fine. As for the two bad reviews this one received, you could easily solve one problem with a couple clothespins to hold the sides shut.
