There’s nothing like a new year to put a little spring in your step and encourage you to do a little reorganisation around the house. The run up to Christmas can leave the place a little unkempt, to say the least, so it’s time to regain a little order.

1. Hide any unsightly extension cords around the house with the help of VELCRO® Brand Stick On Strips. These can be attached under desks, under beds or behind television units.

2. Buy a cheap and cheerful whiteboard in your local pound or stationary shop and attach it to the wall of a focal point in the house. This way you can jot down any reminders. You can easily place it on the wall using VELCRO® Brand HANGables™ Removable Wall Fasteners. The beauty of these is that they can be removed at any point without leaving any damage to the wall.

3. Everyone has THAT drawer. The one full of countless wires, chargers and cables that you always claim you’ll get around to sorting ‘someday’. Well there’s no time like the present, so make someday today. Thanks to VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Ties you can sort out and neatly organise the dreaded ‘stuff’ drawer and make finding things a cinch.

4. It’s time to tackle your D.I.Y cupboard. Instead of throwing things in and hoping for the best, make the most of VELCRO® Brand All Purpose Straps and fix up any loose painting utensils and keep your brushes together using VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Ties. Attach some VELCRO® Brand Heavy Duty Stick On Strips to the wall of the cupboard and the back of each tool to make the easy to reach when a D.I.Y disaster strikes.

5. Got any leftover wrapping paper from Christmas? Don’t even dream about binning it! Use VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Ties to keep them in a roll and store them in the attic or at the back of your wardrobe for next year.

6. If you’ve got a plant that is struggling to keep it together during the winter months, it’s time to whip out the VELCRO® Brand Garden Ties.

7. Keep some old jars that you have left over from cooking, attach some VELCRO® Brand Stick On Squares to the lid and the other side under a shelf. These containers can be used to store a variety of small knick-knacks.
