New year, new nothing around here 😉 But, the new year is a natural time to get your home a bit more organized. I encourage you to take some time in the coming weeks (ain’t no time like a snow day!) to make a list of areas in your home that stress you out. Lay them out and tackle one drawer a night, one closet a week, or one room a month until you have a stress free home. Here are some of our favorite organization tools.
Our Favorite Organization Tools
Mini Drawers – these compact drawers are perfect for the garage or craft room (we have several!)
Valet Hooks – the perfect way to get temporary hanging space. I use ours when I am putting laundry away or planning outfits, but they are also awesome for guest bedrooms where you might otherwise use the closet space for year round storage.
Clear Bins – use these anywhere. You can get them to fit inside a drawer or to sit out. My favorite uses are to corral small handbags or sandals and in the pantry or fridge. Perfect for that Home Edit look!
Under Bed Bins – the space underneath the bed is often over looked. Don’t just cram things in there – simple fabric bins are an easy and organized way to take advantage of this dead space. I use mine for wrapping paper and love the setup!
Drawer Dividers – simply adding dividers to a drawer makes you 98% more likely to put something back where it belongs. OK, so I totally made that statistic up, but it totally rings true!
Canisters – Canisters can get really pricey, which is why I love this Rubbermaid set. I’ve had them since my baking cabinet in the condo and love their depth and how stackable they are. And, of course, the price!
Freestanding Shelves – they aren’t the prettiest things in the world, but few things add to the utility of a space like adding shelves. I have sets similar to this one in our garage for Costco bulk items and in the office closet for my Etsy inventory.
Risers – perfect for the pantry or inside any deep cabinet, risers make sure nothing gets lost in the back and keep you from re-purchasing supplies that you forgot that you had. PS – here’s how we made our own!
Makeup Organizer – I really need to clean up my vanity, and I totally have my eye on this organizer. Keeping everything put away but visible would make getting ready so much easier!
Utensil Crock – I love keeping my favorite utensils out on the counter at arm’s reach when cooking. This crock is fabulous and comes in a ton of colors (my color is Caribbean!)
Crates – a great way to corral larger items, and also a cool way to bring a variety of wood tones into your decor! Match them to a piece of furniture that might not otherwise match your space to tie everything together.
