One of the toughest balances to achieve at home is hiding clutter while keeping things you need readily accessible. Take toilet paper, for example. You don't want tons of rolls lying around, but you can't leave them tucked too far away either. Thankfully, social media is full of great ideas for storing toilet paper in plain sight with simple DIY solutions. Sure, you could buy a ready-made holder to keep your bathroom neat and tidy but those will easily cost you upwards of $20. Instead, spend just a few bucks and achieve an equally handy result that's also aesthetically pleasing to boot. 

One of our favorite space-saving hacks comes from TikTok and helps you store multiple rolls of toilet paper in a snap. Creator @alice_the_skoolie showed off the quick and easy trick, which takes just seconds to create and only requires a cup hook (a 12-pack costs $3.99 on Amazon) and about two feet of string. After installing the hook, tie a loop on the end of each rope, thread it through your toilet paper rolls, and hang it. A double-prong robe hook would also work well (just $3.50 from Home Depot). Not to mention you can show off some creativity by swapping plain string for pretty colored twine, heavy-duty ribbon, thick braided rope, or any other material that catches your fancy.

Quick and easy toilet paper storage solutions

If you like @alice_the_skoolie's ultra-simple toilet paper storage solution, consider replicating it to hang a single roll. A ready-made holder in this style retails for around $30 on Etsy, but you can craft one yourself for a fraction of the price. Best of all, it'll only take a few minutes. First, screw a double-prong robe hook into a natural wood slice ($5 at Walmart), then thread a thick jute rope, with loops tied on each end, through your toilet paper roll and hang it up.

If you're happy with your holder and upgraded storage is all you're after, another equally simple but brilliant idea is to use IKEA's MOSSLANDA picture ledge ($6.99 online) to house all of your rolls in plain sight. You can also repurpose a hurricane vase — which you can paint to match your decor too — or even upcycle a magazine holder. 

Alternatively, if you're in the mood for a more challenging DIY project, add instant charm to your bathroom with a TikTok-approved macrame holder. Craft a macrame wall hanging that's slightly wider than a toilet paper roll and long enough to loop back on itself. Secure both ends to the wooden frame at the top, slip your toilet paper in between, and voilà!
