Need an organizational overhaul? If you’re on a tight budget, there’s one inexpensive thing you can get at the hardware store that, with the help of some craftiness, can help you organize just about every room in your home: PVC pipes.

PVC pipes come in a wide variety of different sizes, which means there are tons of options available to use throughout your home. For inspiration, check out these simple-but-stylish DIY PVC solutions.

Keep Extra Toilet Paper Neatly On-Demand

If you don’t want so much toilet paper on display or have a smaller wall space to work with, just cut back on the amount of pipes you use.
